I've really been productive this past 2-3 weeks. I can feel my belly getting heavier as weeks gone by. I've actually set goals for me to achieve by April so I won't be rushing my way until May to finish everything. On top of that, I don't want to burden myself even more having a newborn and a toddler crying for me after my maternity leave. I want to be there for them and not spend time working extra hours like what I'm doing right now, typing this on weekend shift and having it on my mind that by the time I finished my shift, it'd be 10.00pm and I'm just coming home to a sleeping baby that I only managed to give a peck before I leave for work this morning. I feel like a responsible and irresponsible mother at the same time.

 Here's a belly shot - sort of. It definitely grew since the last time I took a photo of it. A size of a banana inside. Yum, my favorite.

I wanted to do a 25 weeks update but I was too occupied with work and my schedules seems to be always full.

 Here's my little one. I feel like a bad mother for not spending more time with her. On days where I get to sleep in for longer time, I like to cuddle with her, read her books, sing some nursery rhymes and without any reason at all, bring her out with me to the mall, looking at fruits and veges ( her favorite section) and if she behaves, I'll buy her some toys.

For most of it, I am the better clingy one than her. She waits for me outside the bathroom every single time, It warms my soul. But she's all I can think of through the day.

 My 2 weeks appointment is out. I am not going in every month to see the nurse and doctor. My blood level maintained the same which is actually a stressful phase I need to go through every week. I had blood drawn out of me every 2 weeks, medication isn't helping me at all and I am now trying a raw approach.

That in the photo is my raw beet, spinach and banana smoothie with a punch of grape juice. I hope it made a difference to my blood level.

Cravings, well, I've been having the same thing every single day. Just that I am still in love with bolognese the same way I love pork noodle soup when I was pregnant with my first.

Today, I had porridge and fried kueh (cakui) and hot soy milk since I'm off fresh milk and caffeine.

Here's to sum up my weeks

How far along?
27 Weeks.

Total weight gain/measurements:

Stretch marks?
Just the old ones. I've been using bio oil diligently and I noticed some stretch marks fading away.

Sleep has been alright. I've been coming home pretty much exhausted and slept through the night without fuss. Belle had been sleeping through the night too which is good.

Best moment this week:
Back to my working momentum and got to settle few targets!

Miss anything?
Independently able to do just about anything. 


Anything making you queasy or sick?
Over eating, still. 

Gender: Scan is next week.
Labor signs: Braxton hicks here and there.

Just super heavy belly.

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

Happy or moody most of the time?

Looking forward to:
Baby gender.

We haven't started shopping for baby items yet. We're hoping it will be anytime soon. 

My tooth fillings has been falling off and it scares me to get a treatment due to the fact that it will hurt my baby. I am paranoid.
