Week 27

Week 27 started off with me fitting into a "S" size bodycon dress for a wedding dinner as seen above. I am definitely having some wardrobe crisis with CNY coming up and praying I can find something to wrap myself in with my bump now measuring about 35 inches.

As I tried to enjoy the last week of my 2nd trimester, I was down with mild contractions (again) in the middle of the week. The pain was so bad that it woke me up from my sleep and I had to just endured it till it goes away. Our gynae said the baby is okay according to the scan but I have to just monitor and take medication to relax the womb. I am better since then and been busy all week especially the weekend unpacking many luggage and boxes at our new home. And I am only 30% done, sigh.

Emotionally I have been feeling a little on the down side this week, not sure if the hormones are acting up, but I guess the reality and anxiety of knowing I am going to be a mum in 2.5 months time are kicking in. In addition, the transition of shifting into a new place (though its finally our own home), the stress of readjusting to new routines, new environment, and neighborhood can be quite taxing and stressful. I am really looking forward to settling down really quickly in our new home and praying that Jiahao and I get to just enjoy some time together before I pop, but looks like its kind of hard as well because we have yet to prepare anything for our baby because of the renovation and shifting, so its going to be another busy month or so doing research on baby products, reading up on books and buying and unpacking stuff for the baby. Its been really tiring since the beginning of December, so I hope I can hold myself up mentally and emotionally. (gambatte!)

Have a good week peeps!
