Alhamdulillah I’m doing great. Big and great!! Currently in my second trimester, 21 weeks to be exact. I hope you all are doing perfectly fine ☺️ Today I feel like telling you stories about how my pregnancy going so far.
It does feel a little different this time compared to previous two pregnancies. To be honest, I really don’t feel like I have control over my body at all! I’m just not me. First trimester was super tiring, I wanted to sleep all the time. I fell asleep at work, oncall was tough and to my surprise, coffee is not so much of my favourite drink! I had to force myself to take caffeine to survive oncall… most of the time, I can’t even finish one cup. And I don’t fancy fish.. at all! I don’t know why, I have nothing against fish but this time, I just don’t feel like eating fish. The only fish that I eat during this pregnancy is ikan bilis. The anchovies it is.. the rest, thanks but no thanks!
During first trimester, I had a little bit of feeling nauseous and dizzy from morning until evening.. but at night, I will shine bright (like a diamond!!) but only until 10-ish before I feel sleepy again. Had to wake up 2 to 3 times just to pee and I was already in my maternity pants when I was only at 8 weeks pregnant! Hahaha.. I gained weight so much faster this time.
Hubsy has been too helpful (Alhamdulillah..), kept on feeding me because he worried of his twins will be born small. There was one time I told him I wanted to eat kuih bom (some of you called it pau sambal I think) and he bought 15 of it for me to eat!! Hahahah.. I ate one. Thats all I need and just to jaga hati my husband, I had to force myself to eat one more 😀 Siapa nak makan lagi 13?
I put this up on Instagram last week, some of you think I’m not gaining much weight. Looks can be deceiving 😉 It’s all about the angles!! Hahaha..
Picture above, perfect angle. All covered up!
Picture below, my so-wrong angle! I sacrifice myself to cover my husband’s tummy 😁#pengorbananisteri
Before I got pregnant, I was already back into my pre-wedding weight!! I worked out almost everyday and we were really into eating clean. Super freak! After we knew we were expecting, I was scared to eat initially. It was really tough to change my mind set and my husband said, he will eat with me, and gain weight together! 😁 #pengorbanansuami
That is the sweetest thing he ever said to me! 😘 Hehe..
So, our motto changed from “Couples that work out together, stays together” to “Couples that eat together, stays together” 💪🏼
B and T loves to browse the BabyCenter app to know about the progress of their adik. Every week they will ask me about their adik size. So, last week, at 20 week pregnant, their adik should be about the size of a banana. Relatively easy for them to understand than giving measurement, right?
Tasha: What’s adik size this week mommy? Are they getting bigger?
Me: Yes, Tasha. Now adik is about a size of a banana. Since you have two adik, that means I have about 2 bananas in my tummy, Tasha…
Tasha: But mommy, you look like you have 10 bananas inside you!!
