My pregnant life is now 5 months. YEY!! Everything is going well so far.
Last weekend I’ve got maternity girdle from my grandmother and my anty. There is practice that 5 month pregnant-woman go to a shrine with maternity girdle to pray an easy birth on the day of dog which is a lucky day of childbirth. A dog’s delivery seems not so hard and Japanese people follow the example of it. They day comes every 12 days.
My anty already went to a shrine to pray for me, so I don’t have to go there myself. May 16 was the day of dog and I put maternity girdle on. This one has removable bands, so when I sleep, I take it out . This weekend I have an ultrasound ! I really hope I know the sex of baby.
It was a beautiful sunny day. My husband and I took my mother-in-law to Mother’s Day lunch. It’s organic food restraunt. The restraunt was used to a Japanese inn and now it’s renovated to the restaurant. It’s located on a hill and we drove to there.. That’s huge mistake. Road is narrow in the mountain. However, the view was beautiful and the restaurant that rewards my husband’s driving effort.
Food was great.Many soyes were used in the menu and inside of the restraurant was Japanese old style. All of things are my favorites. Such a good day for Mother’s Day🌹
My mother has passed away already,so my sister and I can’t celebrate the day directly, but she’s alwas in our mind and this Mother’s Day is very special for two reasons.
Reason 1. I’m pregnant and I feel so happy because I am a part of the day 🙂
Reason2.This is main reason. Our parents’ house became ours. We have father and right after our mother passed away, we found out that he started dating with my mother’s friend from high school. He’s been knowing her because he also went to same school. I knew something was going on. My sister and I gave him two options, Breaking up with his girlfriend or If he can’t , give us the house and completely refuse to contact us from here or out. He didn’t break up with her and that’s his decision. We’ve got advancement from him and cleaned up the house to rent it to my friend’s family. We’d fought for my mother for two years because she loved the house and left her living proof. My sister displays “deed to property” besides mother’s picture. These two years were terrible, however I knew how I was lucky to have supportive people. My grandma, my aunt’s family and my mother’s friends, they all supported us. My aunt treats us as her daughters. My mother’s friends, they were furious about this situation and decided to stay away from my father and his girlfriend. She was loved by everyone. I’m still 30 and it’s too young to go through this issue myself. I have a gratitude for them very much.
I was back in hometown for four days. Most of days were cleaning our house. We had turban shells at lunch 😉 and had an accident, too. At parking lot, our car got dent by other’s car. It was ok and no one got hurt. I was so surprised.
