Meet Yunwoo! 3 weeks old

Hey everyone ♥ Yunwoo was born on September 26, 2012 (8.4 ibs).  BIG BABY!  He is already 3 weeks old and weighs almost 10 ibs!  It seems like so long since I've talked to you guys! Thank you for all the congrats messages! Yunwoo, Aiden, and I are doing great! I had to do an emergency c-section while I was 8cm dilated due to some complications.. so it is taking a long time to recover. I've been in bed rest for over a week and now I am slowly able to walk around and stuff! I will continue to film videos for you guys and upload Yunwoo vlogs as soon as I fully recover (since filming and editing takes a lot of time and work). ♥ Have a great day!!! MuaH~!

Pregnancy Questions ♥

1.  When are you due? - I'm due on September 30, 2012~! Four weeks left to go!  My mom has a feeling that he is going to come out 1or 2 weeks earlier tho! Hehe

2.  Can different emotions from a mother affect the baby inside in any way?  - YES of course!  When you're pregnant you should only think happy thoughts! Being nervous or stressed is reallllllly harmful to the baby and stresses them out too.
3.  Exercise for pregnant women? -  I was told by my doctor to do Kegel pelvic exercises daily and also to atleast walk 15 minutes!  This will help your labor/delivery to be easier.

4.  Will you be doing natural birth OR C section? -  natural birth =)

5.  Does your baby move a lot? - Oh yes~!  When he was smaller and there was more room in my stomach, he use to move around A LOT and kicked/punched all the time.  Now that he is so big and takes up my whole stomach, he has less room to move around and stretch.  I feel him whenever he is moving positions and turning. His butt, elbows, knees are always bulging out from different parts of my belly too! Soo weird~  hehe.  They say that an active baby is a healthy baby!
6.  What do you eat the most? - I actually eat everything!  I guess rice... since I eat that everyday hehe

7.  Does your feet get swollen? - My feet/body/hands/face started to swell up from last week.   I never swelled up until recently.  I guess it's just one of the pregnancy symptoms that people go through.  I'm just sad that my wedding ring doesn't fit on my finger anymore until later in the afternoon =(

8. What cravings do you have? - hMmm chocolate! Yummmmm

9. Have you been limited to do some stuff you regulary do because of ur pregnancy? - Shopping =(... Before I was pregnant I was able to shop for hours, but now that I'm pregnant and heavier I get tired even after 30 minutes of walking.  My legs start hurting so bad and I'm always short of breathe.
10.  Are you currently having morning sickness? -  Nope!  I actually had a very easy pregnancy!  I know so many people that suffered from morning sickness, but luckily I didn't.  At the wayyyy beginning of my pregnancy I felt nauseated only a few times when I smelled certain foods, but not to the extent where I had to throw up. 
11.  Are you insecure now because your "bigger"? - nope! feeling great and beautiful than ever!

12. How much weight have you gained so far since become pregnant? - So far I've gained 30 pounds (which is all belly!  I haven't gained any weight on my arms -_-... I did gain some weight on my legs tho).  I think by the time I give birth, I will gain a total of 33-35 pounds throughout my whole pregnancy.  Since I was so underweight before I was pregnant, I was told by my doctor to atleast gain 30 pounds.  He said that if you are over weight, a healthy pregnancy weight gain is 10-15 pounds... if you are normal/average 20-25 pounds... and if you are underweight 25-30 pounds. 

13.  Any products you use on your belly? - Throughout my whole pregnancy I used Bella B Tummy Cream.  Recently I ran out and since I only have 4 weeks left, I didn't want to order another one since it is pretty pricey ($20 ish).  I went to babiesrus and bought Palmer's products instead.  Every night after I get out of the shower, I put on the Palmer's Cocoa Butter Stretch Mark Lotion and the Palmer's Tummy Butter all over my belly.  The tummy butter is greasy, but it really helps with the itching.  The smell isn't that pleasent, but it does help a lot with the itching.  I have no stretch marks... not sure if it's because of genetics? My mom has no stretch marks either after giving birth to me and my little brother.  I was also told to NEVER itch your belly because that can cause stretch marks.

Here is the Bella B Tummy Honey Cream (I showed this in my Pregnancy Must Haves Video)

14.  Does the baby disturb you in your sleep a lot? - Oh yes... he is most active at night when I'm about to goto sleep.  When I'm trying to sleep on my side, I feel him moving, turning, etc... so it takes awhile for me to fall asleep.  It seems like he's saying, "MOMMY I'm not sleep! I want to play~ get up!!"  He also presses down on my bladder, so I have to constantly get up to use the restroom.

15. Have you dreamed about the baby? - I actually dream about the baby every night.. ever since I first found out I was pregnant.  I kept having dreams of this little boy running around and playing... that's how I had a feeling that we were having a boy hehehehe!

16.  Are there certain foods you were told not to eat or drink? I was told not to eat a lot of stuff.  You should avoid eating certain soft cheeses, certain fishes, coffee, alcohol, deli meat, raw fish like sushi, etc.  The doctor gave me a whole list of foods to avoid and watch out for (because of certain bacterias like listeria). 
17.  Do you plan on nursing or feeding forumla? - I'm planning on nursing, but I know couple of people that couldn't nurse even though they planned on doing it because their milk never came out.  Incase that does happen to me, we do have some backup forumla to feed him on his first week.

18.  Did the relationship between you and Aiden change? - YES, during the 8 years we were together, the past 8 months (after I got pregnant) have been the best!  We never ever fought... and always thinking happy thoughts.  He tries his best to support me emotionally too since he knows that if I'm sad, mad, or stressed out it's harmful to the baby. 

19.  Do u think the baby will look like u or Aiden? - hmmmm I think Aiden!  After we took the 4d ultrasound, he looks JUST like Aiden when he was a baby~~~ but we'll see! hehe

20.  Is there some kind of position that u have to sleep in? - As your belly gets bigger, you will be told to sleep on your side (best to sleep on the left side).  You could no longer sleep on your stomach or on your back.  If you sleep on your back, the baby can press down onto your organs and veins.

21.   Does ur culture have some kind of good diet after giving birth? - YES, Koreans have a myth that seaweed soup will help your milk to come out more if you are nursing.  Koreans usually eat seaweed soup after they give birth for a whole month or so.

21.  Did u have taemong 태몽? or did your or Aiden's mom have it before?  - Taemong is a dream that Koreans have about what gender the baby will be.  I had a taemong about having a son, and so did my & Aiden's parents.

22.  Did u take any special supplements to give extra nutrients for Yunwoo? - YUP!  I'm taking my centrum prenatal vitamins daily.  It's important that you take pregnatal vitamins so that your baby is getting all the nutrients that they need. I haven't even missed ONE day of not taking my vitamins throughout my entire pregnancy. Some vitamins might not work out for you.. and make you feel nauseated.  You will have to try different vitamins to see which one works best for you... or you can also ask your doctor to recommend you some.  I was told that prenatal vitamins makes you feel sick because of the iron intake.  At first I tried the One-A-Day prenatal vitamins and it made me feel sick... so I switched to Centrum (which I love!!!).  You have to also make sure to take the vitamin after you eat.. never with an empty stomach because you will feel sick >.<

Yunwoo 4d Ultrasound & VLOG ♥

I just got back from getting my 4d ultrasound done!  A lot of people asked me to upload pictures of little Yunwoo~ so I decided to make a powerpoint with some photos that were taken today!  I think he looks a lot like his daddy~ what do you guys think!?  He was also being SOOO shy.. kept covering his face with his hands.  The doctor finally got him to show his face towards the end of my ultrasound session hehe.  He is now 31 weeks... so 9 weeks left to go!!!!!

We decided to film another vlog for you guys today!  Aiden and I went to "OMI" for lunch~~~~ it was soooo good!!!!!!  If you happen to visit Texas someday, make sure you eat at OMI~!  My favorite is Bibimbab~!

VLOG & Hubby Making 삼계탕 (Sam Gye Tang)

Hey everyone!! It's been a very long time since I've uploaded a video!  I was sick for over a week because I caught a cold from Aiden =(.... I am feeling a lot better now!  Since I was sick, hubby decided to make 삼계탕 sam gye tang for dinner (Ginseng Chicken Soup).  It is a very popular Korean soup.  You can find it at a lot of Korean restuarants.  The soup gives energy and good for colds!  Hope you guys enjoy!  (fwi : we didn't include the ginseng in the soup because we were told that ginseng isn't good for pregnant You can include the ginseng in your soup if you want! hehe)

hehe~ 29 weeks! 11 weeks left to go~~~~! ♥

Yoona Inspired Braided Bangs

Tae Yeon has the same braided bangs too! ♥

Hey everyone!  I haven't done a hair tutorial for a veryyyyyyyy long time!  I saw a picture of Yoona on a website and thought it was sooo pretty so I decided to do a tutorial on it.  The girl in this video is my cousin-in-law.. isn't she pretty? ^^  She married my cousin last year and they just celebrated their one year wedding anniversary.  She is the same age as Aiden (28 years old)~!  Doesn't she look young for her age!?  She came over to our house this morning because I had to do makeup on her for a concert tonight.  She sings and plays the piano in a Christian praise group.  After I was done with her makeup I asked her, "HEY! Since you're here can you feature in my hair tutorial really quick?  It will only take 5 minutes!".  She was excited and agreed to film it!  Thanks unni~!  Anywayz.. I hope you guys enjoy this video! ♥

My Current Works ♥

Hey everyone!  Hope all of you guys had a great 3 day weekend!  I spent the whole Memorial Day with my parents~ what did you guys do?  So this past weekend, I did makeup for another client's photoshoot.  I did two different looks on her and wanted to share my work with you guys!  The photos were taken by Aiden (for those who don't know, my hubby is a freelance photographer!). 

The first look is a special occasion smokey eyes makeup.  She wanted to look "sexy", so I used dark eyeshadows on her and a bronzer instead of a pink blush. 

This second look was a Boa inspired cat eye look from her music video "Copy & Paste".  I changed the makeup around alittle bit to suit her face... so it doesn't look exactly like Boa's makeup from the video.  I tried applying the long false lashes on her bottom lashline, but it looked really weird on her!  This makeup looked really great on her~ she really did look like a cat~~ MeOwwww hehe

Current Korean Fashion Trends ♥

These are just some pictures that I found while surfing on the web!  I saw a lot of Korean girls dress like this in Korean dramas these days (like Sung Yuri).  I will start filming my fashion videos again as soon after I give birth! ^__^ Until then I will keep you guys updated on current fashion trends by posting pictures on my blog!

Baby Haul ♥

Hey everyone!  I decided to film a "Baby Haul" video of all the things Aiden and I bought this week for the baby!  We bought most of the items shown in this video at Babies R Us.  It took us weeks and weeks looking through websites and visiting baby stores to find a theme that we liked!  I'm glad we finally found one that we both liked!  I'm not a huge fan of "blue" color, so we decided to go for a neutral theme : white/cream/beige (Mamas & Papas).  Of course we will have other colorful things around his crib like wall decorations and different colored teddy bears.  The white crib and dresser set that we ordered will arrive around May 30th, so as soon as the crib arrives I will tour you around our new place and our crib setup!  I'm sooo glad I have a HUGE family so that I can get hand-me-downs~!  Like I've mentioned in the video, the shoes and stack of clothes were clothes that my nephews wore longgg time ago!  It still looks like brand new.. with no stains at all!  I think it's nice to get hand-me-downs from family members since babies grow SOOOO fast!  Anyways.... I can't believe it's already Friday tomorrow!!!! Talk to you guys later!! Bye!
