three days ago, I went to GFY for pregnancy lessons, which was teaching pregnancy women to do exercises. After we did about 40 minutes exercise, the day after that day, when I got up, I feel hurt everywhere. I have already decided to buy a yoga mat this Friday, I think it’s more safe to buy it in the store. On October, I will do the Birth Defect Exam, and I will ask the doctor if she can give me a hint, if she won’t, I will check the blood to test.

I’m trying to continue my social insurance so I have to go to different government place to do that. My father-in-law has a company, but the company doesn’t have the right to proceed with my social insurance. We have a problem of the Chinese name, my husband’s parents with to name the baby with Chinese custom way. The word of my baby isn’t very good, it’s Chuan. We have a family meeting about the name, they said “if the baby is a girl, we don’t need to follow the name, but if the baby is a boy, we should follow it”.

three days ago, I went to GFY for pregnancy lessons, which was about teaching pregnancy women to do exercises. After we did exercise for about 40 minutes exercise, the day after that day, when I got up, I felt muscle pain everywhere. I have already decided to buy a yoga mat this Friday, I think it’s safer/ more reliable to buy it in the retail store. In October, I will do the Birth Defect Exam, and I will ask the doctor if she can give me a hint, if she doesn’t, I will do the blood test to check the gender.

I’m trying to continue my social insurance so I have to go to different government places to do that. My father-in-law has a company, but the company doesn’t have the right to proceed with my social insurance. We have a disagreement on the baby’s Chinese name, my husband’s parents want to name the baby with the family tradition. The word for my baby isn’t very good, it’s Chuan. We had a family meeting about the name, they said “if the baby is a girl, we don’t need to follow the name, but if the baby is a boy, we should follow it”.
