I have a love and hate with this pregnancy. Sometimes, I feel dreadful. Most of the time I feel very moody. Honestly, the only reason I wake up in the morning and feel good about it is... well, actually my daughter. Truth is, I am a tad bit clingy towards Belle. Every inch of her I want to pack into my bag and carry her everyday to the office. Everyday at work I think of her... more than I think of daddy. Honestly, I only think of daddy when I need a ride home or when I am hungry. But most of all, I am more drawn to Belle than anyone else.

Alright. That sums up my 23 weeks update.


On the other note, my anemia problem hasn't resolve. On early January, I got super super sick that I had to take antibiotics to help me with the viral fever. I lost 2kg, still have to feed Belle and pull myself together for work. It was actually quite stressful eventhough I have help from my family.

The antibiotics I took made my anemia worst.

I've gained quite a few kg this few weeks that shocked me the other day. So shocked even my colleague was surprised of the looks I gave after weighing myself.

My appetite had increased tremendously that I found myself eating 2 heavy meals every 15 minutes. I found the need to feed myself every 2 hours now which is pretty bad considering the rapid increase in my weight. I'm having my glucose test at 24 weeks before heading back to hub's for Chinese New Year.

Anyways, here's my 23 weeks update.

How far along?
23 Weeks.

Total weight gain/measurements:

Stretch marks?
Just the old ones.

Sleep hasn't been great. Well, sometimes it is. We bought extra mattress for when I needed the space so, I was thinking yes! I have extra space now BUT I was wrong. I feel like sardines everytime Belle decided to sleep so near to my belly at the edge of the bed.

Best moment this week:
Eating any food without needing to throw up.

Miss anything?
Less painful walks. I'm thinking, I might be short on calcium.

Oh, I'm having a ninja.

Anything making you queasy or sick?
Over eating lol. 

Gender: Baby's still not showing but, any gender will do.
Labor signs: Nope.

Feeling tired all the time, sleepy, cramps and joint pain. Also, the most dreaded constipation (sorry, tmi)

Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? on.

Happy or moody most of the time?
Moody. Probably because of the travelling these day. This year in fact, I'm gonna be travelling so much.

Looking forward to:
Days where I don't have cramps and pain in any part of my body.


At this point, I feeling quite good with myself. I am up and going, I am able to perform simple task and I am back on track with work again.

Although they say 2nd trimester is the honeymoon phase in pregnancy but I do feel like it's not, because of the symptoms. I do look ok but mama, walking like a penguin is not comfortable.
