swelling tummy

last week on Friday, i went to visit the doctor again to see how’s the little one doing. we took two pictures: one to see the width of the head, which is around 3cm, the other one is to see the baby’s heartbeat, which still falls under the normal range. however, the baby was moving around sooooo much that we couldn’t get a good picture of her. she was somersaulting left and right, kicking her legs up and down… i secretly wish that she would slow down a little by the time i can feel her movement…

oh well, maybe next time, she’ll behave and let us take her pretty picture…

oh yeah, speaking of SHE, we found the gender out during the ultrasound session. it’s not 100% positive, but the doctor said that she has no penis… so it’s probably a girl. we’ll have a better prediction later, on our 20-week visit. but it’s a good thing, because up until now, we still haven’t been able to decide on boy’s name. for girl’s name, we have one that we both like :)

although it doesn’t look much different from the 12th week (see picture above), my tummy feels heavier and pointier than a few weeks ago. i don’t get sick as easily as i was a few weeks ago. i tolerate smells better, i get less fatigue… in fact, i feel more energetic.

the only problem is clothing. slowly, but surely, i’m running out of options on pants and skirts. i may have to buy some new ones with elastics on the waist. actually, the waist is not the only problem. the biggest problem is the butt… it swells more than i thought it would be! i think it is trying to balance out the weight off the tummy, so i won’t fall forward…

oh my goodness….your tummy is so cute and tiny! i can imagine though how small changes greatly affect your body though (even though it doesn’t look much different to us). and YAY for SHE!! :) can’t wait to see more photos thalia!

i know, it’s small! it takes a while to “feel” pregnant. for the first few months, i just feel… bloated :)

Hey Thal… Happy belated X’mas, anniversary and of course New Year ya… I got your sms but unable to reply, maybe network was overloaded.
But anyway, so glad to be back with faster internet speed :) and mostly so glad to know that you and the little one are doing just fine…

i guess i can really see the expansion on both front and back side… :) it’s cute kok!
