A while back I took my older daughter to Vietopia, a Vietnamese restaurant, for lunch on her day off to have Pho. It is a pretty Vietnamese Cafe off of Senopati in Jakarta. I craved Pho for a while during my first trimester back in September and the pho noodle at Vietopia satisfied my pregnancy craving. These photos make me feel like it was taken ages ago. It’s been a long journey since last summer till now.

Vietopia is almost across the street from the Kripik vendor who sells my favorite Kripik chips in Indonesia on Senopati.
As for my pregnancy update, I am getting big daily at 31 week of pregnancy. Round, heavy and slow. That’s me. I had a tennis lesson for 30 minutes today though. I have tried to stay in shape by jogging, now walking, swimming, and playing tennis, but I might not be able to do these activities much longer.
Back in June, my husband and I decided to take a big leap to go for a number 3. My thinking was who knows how long it would take us to get pregnant again especially I have already had one miscarriage between our first and second and I wasn’t getting any younger. Unlike the first two pregnancies, the pregnancy happened rather quickly and that surprised us. I didn’t even suspect that I was pregnant until I was close to 8 weeks. This post about my health getting weak was written with my true words. I honestly believed that it was parasite. Of course, I’m glad it is a baby. Babies are in some sense the same as parasites since they do live off of their moms, aren’t they…?
I have to incubate this baby at least for the next 8 weeks. If I can survive 8 more weeks, I’m good to go.
I can do it. Right?
