My sweet Prince Milo

 Published in

Milo Samuel MancaMilo Samuel MancaTo even begin to describe the last 9 days would require volumes of blog posts. The last "week" has been the most physically challenging thing I have ever gone through and with the greatest reward - my beautiful son Milo.

So many people told me that I would never know a love like this. They were right. Milo is unbelievable and so much a part of me. I am in love with him and will do anything to keep him safe and happy. I have a connection to him that exists with no other human being on this earth.

Waiting is the hardest part

 Published in

So it's Wednesday, and Bun is due in 5 days. More symptoms keep happening to us, and it's hard to say if this is getting really close or just kinda close.

Whatever happens, the end result I'm looking for is the same. I just want to hold my new baby . I'm anxious, excited but not too scared. If I think I'm scared, imagine what Bun will go through!

Finding my Constant

 Published in

In preparing for early labor which still could come on at any minute (or as delayed as 3-4 weeks from now), my midwife suggested that I find something that balances me - my Constant. It could be music. It could be a photo or imagery, meditation or snuggling with a pet.

How do I find my constant? What is the one thing that I go back to when I'm sad, lonely or in need of a recharge? It's hard to identify just one thing, since I must have this mechanism to cope with life, stress and being overwhelmed and reach for it automatically without thinking.

Jessica and Bun preparing for the big day

 Published in

With less than 8 weeks to go, or so it would seem by my 40 week duration for pregnancy, Bun and I are doing all we can to get ready.

Bun actively performs several strength-training moves like the double foot kick, the karate chop and the head-butt to the bladder. Bun stays in shape this way everyday even while balancing on his/her head! Impressive!

Bun's also both a late-night and early riser. Bun's schedule shows he/she makes the most out of each day.

As the first baby, do you think Bun will arrive early or late (after the June 1 due date)?

Bun at 31.5 weeks

Bun at 31.5 weeksBun at 31.5 weeks

Bun is getting big!!! At this ultrasound on April 1, Bun was almost 4 pounds. In the ultrasound you used to be able to see all of Bun - from head to toe. But now, only Bun's head fits in to the frame. Soon we'll get to meet Bun in person. It will be an exciting day!

These days it is easy to feel Bun in Jessica's belly. I remember the early days when she got so excited when Bun would move. She would call me over to feel the movement -- but I would never feel anything :-( But, as Bun grows, it is really easy to feel him or her move. And baby moves around quite a bit! We've even gotten good at feeling baby in when it isn't moving -- you can feel what is baby and what isn't.

Jessica's new self-image, and it's not about work!

 Published in

I was just updating my calendar and realize that I have roughly 8 weeks to go before my last day at work! With Baby Bun scheduled for June 1 (due date), I'm planning on taking off work 2 weeks early to pamper myself and get ready for my parents' visit. My folks will stay a few months to help with baby. It will be much appreciated.

I just can't believe that I have so little time left. There is a lot to do at work, and many things to hand off to others. I know things will be fine and ya know, operate without me but that still doesn't mean I don't have mixed feelings.
