Here’s the bump shot we took yesterday to document my 6th month. If I haven’t been gaining weight during the 4th and 5th month, I really turned things around and gained a whopping 8 lbs in just 4 weeks. My doc was like “Okay Aims, I know I told you to gain weight but let’s please stick to 1 lb. a week.”. Hay naku…the weight gain woes of a pregnant woman! If you don’t gain weight, your doctor complains. If you gain too much, your doctor still complains! Ha! There’s just no pleasing anyone is it?! I give up!
Anyway, this is the last month of my second trimester and the “honeymoon” phase is almost coming to an end. My body can tell. I’m feeling heavy and lethargic. I’m surprised two people called me a pregnancy unicorn this week. I didn’t even know what that meant until I Googled it. Apparently that term was used in the movie “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” referring to women who don’t look bloated, sick or fat during their pregnancy and just look like their regular selves, only with a huge bump. Why thank you very much! That has got to be one of the nicest things anyone has ever called me. haha. Believe me, during the first trimester I felt like I was going to cough up my insides. Baka nasa nagdadala yang yan. hihi.
Anyway, here’s hoping you’ll have an awesome weekend ahead! I shall leave you with a pic of the little boy at 24 weeks waving hello!
