I can’t even describe how excited I am to be getting on a plane to go to Japan, again! This will be our fourth time traveling to Japan and this time it feels so different because it’s a vacation. Every other time we’ve been it’s been on some kind of mission and those were great times, but there’s something different about actually visiting a place rather than going to work. I’m just really excited because Japan has such a calm about it that Matt and I have never really had the opportunity to fully experience. We’ve grabbed bits and pieces of it but this time we want to really experience it. Cherry Blossom season is in full swing there and it’s just magical, you must experience it to understand. It’s like the whole country is doing the same thing and just enjoying nature, taking it all in to the fullest. Here in America, we don’t have anything like it. There is just no time where we really take a break to view nature. I’m so looking forward to it!
On the pregnancy side of things, everything is going well and I got another green light from my Doctor to go on this trip so that is reassuring. Week 26 was busy prepping for the trip so my mind was a little preoccupied from pregnancy. But, little man is still growing and moving about. I have been all about fruit juices and fruit snacks this week. Not sure if it’s a craving but I guess it could be considered one. I usually try to stay away from fruit juices and high sugar fruits themselves because fructose is pretty much the worst sugar for our bodies in terms of how much it spikes our blood sugar so I’m trying to keep an eye on how much I drink/eat. But a little here and there is ok I think! Besides, I probably won’t be eating that much fruit or sugar in Japan. Anyway, here are some shots of this week’s belly-boy!
