I’ve gone through my normal blog duties the past few months, but I guess some of my friends and readers didn’t know what was going on behind the scenes as well. Mostly, I was feeling the pangs and adverse symptoms of first trimester pregnancy which had me feeling unwell on most days, sleepy, and easily tired.
For a while there, I thought I lost my sense of taste too and so refrained from making any food/restaurant reviews to avoid being unfair to my chosen subjects. I can only remember being attached to kimchi during the first few weeks. I simply had to have it, even if it meant dining alone in my fave Korean restaurant.
Of course, I can only thank the husband, who has chosen to stay with me till delivery, for bearing with cranky old me. It was just as good, because I really couldn’t imagine driving myself to and from work, even at just four months. This is simply one of the my hardest pregnancies ever.
But going on my fifth month now, I expect the icky symptoms to ease up a bit and I pray that I get to enjoy it from hereon. My ultrasound yesterday showed our Baby Z to be hale and healthy. We’ve held off from buying the layette, but we’re certainly getting excited at the thought of having a baby in the family. After all, there’s nothing cuter than a baby’s laughter, drool and smile. And Lord, prepare us too for a long bout with sleepless nights! 😛
