So i've finally taken some pictures of me and my bump. :) Just to let you know, today i'm 25 weeks and 2 days along, almost at the end of the 2nd trimester!! Just one more lap to go! Just left with 14 weeks and 5 days left. :) Now everyone say "YAYYYY!!!!"
Though almost all pregnancy "books" i read say that i should have an "outtie" belly button, i don't have that yet. My belly button is still normal. In fact, i could still use my belly ring if i wanted to. Oh, reason why i say "books" is because i read everything online, or by downloaded applications i put into my Iphone and Ipad respectively. I am also religiously watching Fetal Development videos on YouTube. They are such a big help, and help you understand so much more! If you're pregnant, or planning to get pregnant, do watch the videos too!
Here's some pictures of me, i took them today, so they are exactly as they look. I didn't manage to take a measurement of my belly as i've no idea where i've put the measuring tape! :( Looks like i should go buy a new one. But last i checked, which was about 1 and a half weeks before Christmas, i was 36 inches around the belly. First two are covered up, and the next two, i lifted up my top to show how the belly looks bare.
Here is the front shot, and well, a close up! See my "snail trail"? Its the line that starts just under the belly button? It's darker than it usually is. I read that it becomes darker during pregnancy. I think it's mad ugly actually! Now i just wonder, does it disappear after the baby is born? Anyone knows? Please let me know! It isn't like crazily dark now, but obvious enough to me.
Hehehe. So cute right! I think the baby bump is like the cutest thing ever! I've always thought that the most beautiful women on earth, are pregnant women. They seemed to always have this glow and confidence about them. And, well, i've joined the club! Heh. =)
Anyways, the last couple of nights, i've been getting so much kicks and some really felt like spasms. And for some reason, always happened in the middle of the night..actually, more like in the wee hours of the AM. So i did some research. It seems, your baby probably sleeps during YOUR day as your activeness and movements are soothing to them, hence why they sleep during your day. But once YOUR night comes, they wake, and well, you get your kicks. But why do i feel something like SPASMS? So with a little research, i found out that its called baby hiccups. Yes, your baby has hiccups even in the belly. Its so cute actually! I should put my camera by my bedside, so perhaps next time i can catch it all on camera.
Here's my baby's clothes so far. It isn't much yet. But thank you to everyone who has been buying stuffs for our little girl. Especially to my bestie Kaimana, who has been mailing them to me from Hawaii. Love you plenty friend!
Check out this cute pants!! So adorable! I think the leopard one is soooooooo cute! Sham's not crazy about it though. He reckons little girls shouldn't be in leopard prints. I say its cute! Just not too much though!
This one below i received from my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas. Our baby ain't born yet, and already received her first gift. Her first branded romper from CK. ooohhhhoooo! I bought the little socks and head warmer.
Oh and her first pair of shoes, which i don't know when she'll be able to use, thank you to Godma Kai. :)
That's all i have for you today. I hope you enjoyed this post! Oh and for those who asked, im currently taking this prenatal vitamins. :)
You lot have an awesome Friday night ahead! And if there's any sun this weekend, head to the beach!! That's my plan!
