Love & Light

I had a wonderful day! Chuck, one of the lead massage therapist at work, came over to give me a prenatal massage this morning. He also chatted with Troy and I about being our Doula. And we feel great that he will be our Doula. He is so knowledgeable, and has some great advice. I know he will be great in my birth team.

Lately I've been worried (well more like obsessing) over my birth. I was worried about the excess fluid putting me at higher risk for medical interventions such as induction or c-section. Worrying that I will not even get a chance to try to have a natural un-medicated birth. But Chuck eased my mind and said I need to surround my self and baby with love and light. Think positive. And imagine the birth experience I want and not what I don't want. So I'm letting it all go... saying positive affirmations, visualizing what I want and just surrounding myself with Love & Light <3

I also just finished doing some prenatal yoga. I feel great! It brought peace to my mind and body. I need to do that more often. I will definitely continue to keep up with the positive energy and yoga for the remainder of my pregnancy. Because I'm feeling GREAT :)

Polyhydramnios

Or in other words too much amniotic fluid. I have A LOT! No wonder she's a wiggle worm, she's got plenty of swimming room. Baby girl is healthy so the cause of the Polyhydramnios may be that I have Gestational Diabetes. Oh yay... I don't take my glucose test till next week, so I won't know tell then. I've given up all sugar for the past 3 days. Which is making me have headaches, but I know I have to do it. No more sweets, diary or white carbs as advised by my Doula.

I'm feeling very uncomfortable lately. My ribs ache and I have a weird tender spot that throbs on the top of my belly, it keeps me up at night. I feel like I'm literally going to POP! My belly is so tight and hard. 10+ more weeks of this? I hope I can do it! So here's Baby Girl at 25wks 4days:

Aloha!

This is "Aloha" hello and not goodbye. Although I haven't been a very good blogger. Life seems to get in the way.

I have so much to share! I am now 25 weeks pregnant with our second baby girl! Yay!!! I also work at Laniwai the spa at Aulani. So many blessings have come to me and my ohana these past couple of months. I am so grateful. I work at an amazing spa, with amazing talented people. It's a positive and great place to work. I love it!

This pregnancy has gone well. We were a bit nervous in the beginning, considering our last miscarriage. We are so happy that this has be a healthy happy pregnancy. I had my 25wk appointment today and the issue, which I already had a feeling about, was that I'm measuring quit a bit larger that my due date. I'm measuring 30, and I'm only 25wks! So they scheduled an ultrasound tomorrow. I'm thinking positive. Maybe I'm off in my due date, maybe it's a hidden twin! haha Oh my, what if?!

Also... my Mom is now living with us. She's been here for about 1 week. And it's been great! Such a big help. And Kailee lalalaloves her Lola. It's fantastic!

I will try to be better with blogging but we'll see how that goes. :P I'll keep you updated!
