The Chinese believe that the day and time of your birth influences your destiny. Since I will be scheduled for a Ceasarean section delivery for my second child, I have decided to let my mother help me pick a "good" date for my daughter's birth. So far, we haven't really decided, but we have to, and soon! It finally sank in that my daughter will be born in less than 2 months! And we still haven't told my obstetrician our preferred date!

I just had my check up yesterday. I have gained 7 pounds in the last month alone! Whoa! It's so difficult to check my eating lately, as I'm constantly hungry and my usual portion does not satisfy me as much as it did before. But it seems that most of my weight is due to the baby, as aside from my tummy bulge, I did not seem to gain any inches elsewhere on my body. If my past pregnancy were any indication, I would, hopefully, be back to my pregnancy weight within 3 months without diet, exercise, or pills like Fenphedra at all. All I did before was breastfeed.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my baby will be healthy. That's the most important thing of all!
