I am a Hawai'i girl. 28 year old housewife, stay at home mom, and full time student. Hubster's in the air force.
My life is hectic, stressful, and yet so boring at times.
This is my blog about the fun and not so fun times as a mommy and wifey.
I thought the tiredness was going to subside once the first trimester ended. I guess I’m one of the lucky ones who gets to be tired throughout their whole pregnancy. I never had one problem when i was pregnant with my first one. No nausea, no vomiting, no feeling sluggish and drugged. I know every pregnancy is different, but goodness! I got stuff to do!
Well 13 weeks tomorrow. I still can’t believe that I’m pregnant with our second kid. It’s been so long since we had a baby. Our daughter is already 5 years old. She can go to the bathroom by herself, wipe by herself, help me around the house, she goes to school, she has sleep overs. Goodness it’s like we’re starting all over again. I don’t care, this is our blessing, and I’m so excited to grow our family.
When I was pregnant with my daughter, it was like I lost friends. Nobody called me. Before I got pregnant, I was enjoying life by drinking almost every day and partying. I guess you realize who your true friends are when you get pregnant. Anyways, this time around, I was already expecting the same result. It started off the same, I was supposed to go out to celebrate my graduation. A friend asked if I was still going to go, I was like “yah, why not? It’s my graduation, I should celebrate that, not with alcohol but with a good time with friends. She replied, “you’re not going to have any fun” I wanted to prove her wrong, but I got into a funk thinking the same thing is happening again, so I didn’t go. Instead, I let my daughter have her first sleep over, and that was actually more rewarding to me than going out.
Right when I thought the same thing was happening, other friends come out of the nowhere showing their excitement. I have weekly lunches with them, pedicures, and they still invite me to get togethers even though they know I won’t be drinking. I’m very lucky to have this one friend who is starting a project with me. Everything was her idea!! She got me a white board, and a pregnancy journal. Every week, I’m going to her house to take pictures of my baby bump, or what I call it, my LOVE bump. She’s doing this all for me! Who does that? A very good friend who is genuinely happy, and excited for me. Exactly what I needed right now.
Anyways, any PREGNANT MAMAs out there who still get their fitness on, you can follow me on instagram! I’m a Beachbody coach, and I still use the programs to stay fit and strong during my pregnancy. Follow me! (ki2fitness)

My daughter is almost 5 years old, but I still remember it like it was yesterday. I got pregnant with my first child. Children are a blessing, and finding out you are pregnant is a joyous time. Before you get pregnant, you imagine everyone’s reaction. Your ideal reaction would be laughing, smiling, hugs, kisses, excitement, and just pure happiness. Well long story short everyone stopped calling me. I felt like I had no friends. I had no one to share my happiness with, besides my husband.
My friend just recently texted me this: “When you get pregnant, people act as if you died”
Sounds harsh, but great way of explaining on how I felt. It was like I was only their friend because I could drink and party with them. Is that what friendship really is about?
One of my good friends are pregnant right now. Even though we would hang out drinking, we would still invite her. “But she’s not going to have fun”
Why does alcohol have to be apart of having fun with friends?
Because I went through that when I was pregnant with my daughter, I always say, you realize who your true friends are when you get pregnant. The ones who stick around NO MATTER WHAT, they are the keepers.
I been hearing that a lot lately. “Are you still going to go out? You won’t have fun”
I usually don’t socialize too much when I drop off and pick up my daughter at pre-school. I only talk to about two or three parents, and once in a while a dad will try to talk to me, but that’s about it. Anyways, Tuesday, I really had to rush home for the maintenance guys, so as soon as I got my daughter we practically ran to the car to get home. About 10 minutes after, I get a text from her friend’s mom saying her daughter was crying, because apparently my daughter invited her over to OUR house! Uh, news to me! Anyways, I felt bad because her daughter was crying and said she could come over. She stayed until after dinner. I don’t usually do playdates on school days, but ah, it kept my daughter busy.
Wednesday came, and same mom asked if they could have Kai over. I had dinner with friends that night, I texted my husband and asked if my daughter was home, and he said not yet, and that was after 7pm! I was thinking damn! I wish my parents let me stay at a friend’s house after 6 on a school night! Of corse, I had a hard time with bed time because my daughter was too hyped up.
Today is Thursday here in Okinawa. Bumped into the same mom at the post office and somehow we came to the decision to have her daughter over our house again today. Oh gosh, my daughter better realize how good she got it. When I was growing up, the only friends I could play with after school would be my neighbors, and I had to be in the house by 6pm.
Oh well, it keeps my daughter busy while I get stuff done LOL
