Pregnancy Rambling

I am entering my 3rd semester of pregnancy and all i could think of right now is food. I think about food all the time and I go berserk if i don't get to eat the food that i crave for. Blame the weird pregnancy hormone.  One of the realities of motherhood is that from the instant you find out you're pregnant, your hormones and your instinct will take over your body and your sanity, and your perception of the world around you will change forever especially about food. Haha It is a common cliché that pregnant women crave for food, but no one ever told me that my taste buds would go berserk and I would end up eating tons of ... oranges! I hope you know what I mean, it is totally odd if you eat box after box of oranges until you got yourself a diarrhoea attack (this happened to me in my 2nd trimester). I was really really obsessed with oranges. I even bought citrus-scented shower gel/body soap for myself. Again, blame the pregnancy hormone. Haha

As per my usual routine, i sleep at around 9pm every night and I pee like every 15 minutes. I HATE having to get up at night to go to the toilet, it cramps my sleeping style. It's also quite disturbing wondering if, in the 45 minute drive home from work, I'm going to be able to hold it in or will I have to stop on the side of the road. Basically, i experience what other mothers experience during the 3rd trimester. I've been wanting to start swimming but i’m too busy with work and my weekends are usually packed with family activities.
My baby bump looks practically small compared to other expectant mothers. Trust me, people still think that I am about 4/5 months pregnant while i am now in my 31st week of pregnancy. I weighed myself on Monday and I'm officially up 15kgs from pre-pregnancy weight. And if I keep it up with the ice cream and chocolate, I'm sure it will go up quickly.  Need to be careful. Me + sugar cravings = very dangerous combo. I don’t quite get it though as my baby bump doesn’t really appear but i keep on putting more weight.

Thoughts: I am so excited to meet this baby. I feel like May should be a lot closer than it is...but it's going by fast. At the same time, i all psyched to buy all the baby supplies. Hehe

Wow, 3rd trimester already ! Alhamdulillah. I was so hormonal when I was preggers, eating 24-7 (when my morning sickness phase was over) and as a result I gained 16 kilos !

I pray you'll have a safe and smooth delivery, Ameen. :)
