Hubby’s been complaining of the heat so this week’s soup is especially for him: 绿豆汤 – green bean / mung bean soup, served chilled. Since our babymoon, I’ve also decided to swim more (when it stops raining, that is) now that our condo pool is finally “fixed.” I do feel quite self-conscious about my body lately though – definitely look forward to start my prenatal pilates class on Monday!
Meanwhile, received a confirmation email for our childbirth education classes in August (starting week 24 onwards). The Parentcraft Centre also included details on confinement nannies trained by the hospital plus home delivery/catering options. I know nannies have been a life-saver for many, but I still would prefer to be hands-on and besides, our apartment doesn’t have room for more than the three of us.
Gotta admit the sample confinement menu (see below) looks terribly UN-appetizing even if it’s 100% nutritious for recovering moms. Maybe I can convince folks to join me on those liver/kidney/ginger days – misery loves company, right? =8
