Firstly, thank you all for your congratulatory messages! I have been so overwhelmed by them since the morning I announced! I get so many texts that it was quite impossible to put down my phone at all the whole day! Thank you for sharing our joy, it meant a lot to us to know that so many people are so excited for us as we step into this new phase of life
And as you can tell from the above picture I took yesterday, I am definitely living in the last days of cropped tops which makes me kind of sad about it. I love cropped tops as they are really easy to match with. And, I have to say goodbye to my close to ten over pieces of them very soon I will really miss wearing them!
So, over last week, I had many people asking me a lot of questions about my pregnancy…. and the number 1 question I get is “Do you have a baby bump yet?”
Well, because of all the eating and the 4kg I gained in just 2-3 months, my stomach isn’t as lean as it was. In fact, for the recent mornings when I wake up, i check the mirror to see if there is any bump.. (mornings are the best time to check as there isn’t any food inside yet). I think I was quite a pain the past weeks about the whole tummy/bump thing, because having lived with being underweight for my entire life, it’s really odd to see myself having some sort of obvious flabby fats because I am not supposed to have a tummy yet then!
Jiahao has been really nice about it whenever I get a bit too complaining or upset about it, he said something that sort of stayed with me and I thought of sharing it so that I remember it in future… “you are pregnant, and you got to embrace the figure that comes with it”. Yes, sometimes I do forget that I am pregnant and there is a life inside me, and I need to eat and not be overly concern about my weight… So, anyway the bump will be more obvious in the coming weeks, and I am quite happy as well because the bump will remind me that I am pregnant and it will no longer be a gauge if I am eating too much! hahaha.
