The good and not so good things about being pregnant.. :-D

Now that I am in the mid of pregnancy, without morning sickness and all, if you ask me, how am I enjoying pregnancy, the very first answer I’ll give you is ‘nothing fantastic’.

Seriously, how fantastic is it:

1) If you can’t walk as fast as you used to be coz “something” will you pull you back?
2) If you can’t sleep well because you are NOT SUPPOSED to be sleeping on your back, but it hurts to sleep on the most recommended left side, and so not comfortable on the right side?
3) If you can’t help thinking, “wow, my tummy is growing by the day.. am I going to shed all this after labor?”
4) If you can’t help worrying if the stretch mark is every leave on your body, heck if not the tummy, maybe the thighs?
5) If you can’t help keeping bits by bits of your pre-pregnancy clothing, coz you keep outgrowing them, piece by piece.. and you have no choice but to buy some biggie.. and make your tummy more apparent than ever.

But… then, I’ll give you a second thought:

It is really wonderful when:

1) You start feeling your baby inside, especially when you notice he moves actively at some time of the day (mine will be 8-ish in the morning and 3-is in the afternoon), or at things you do, like listening to music, he will become as active and as gentle as the music be. :-)
2) Your hubby kisses and talks to your tummy everyday.
3) Your hubby applies olive oil lotion on your tummy every night before you turn in.
4) Your hubby tells your baby to protect you when you go overseas.
5) People start to notice that your tummy is not fat, but because you are pregnant, and people wonder with their big round eyes “are you….?” question.. hahaha…

It is especially wonderful when you get to see your baby in each ultrasound scan. He is a wonderful gift.

But then again.. I can’t complain, and I will treasure each moment.. As he’ll be our only precious.. our only darling. :-)

1 lil' thoughts:

I'm a full-time mummy on 4:36 PM said...

I am a fast walker, can't stand walking slow slow cos it makes me tired actually. So imagine few hours after I gave birth, the nurse brought my baby to bath him and hubby went out to see as well, and I was walking fast here and there searching for them and end up got scolded by 2 nurses for walking fast :P

Btw, my stretch marks only start to fade few months back.. :(
