The Glow

3 people have recently told me that I have a 'pregnancy glow'! =)

I stared at myself in the mirror last night. My skin did seem to have this dewy texture to it. I rubbed my face and it wasn't oily - so perhaps it is really a 'glow' I am achieving! My hair too has grown really quickly and looks lusher and thicker than before.

I do feel like I am gradually getting better. While I am still throwing up (now just once or twice a day), my appetite is still weak, and still have to hit the sack at 10pm, I feel more energy surging through me daily, and my mind seems a lot sharper and less woozy. I will reach the end of my 12th week this weekend, and I look forward to entering the 2nd trimester.

I have been praying for the new life inside of me, and for myself as a mother. Someone gave me the book Praying for Your Unborn Child, which I have found really insightful and helpful in directing my prayers, taking into consideration some of my own life experiences, and praying for my child in a meaningful way.

celcilia: Thanks dear!

lovexiaolongbao: I'm sure you do! We all have our green days. For me what made it worse was when I had a green day I usually didn't feel like wearing ANY make-up to make myself look better. Haha. Poor people who had to see me.

Hey there, I hear that when there is a pregnancy glow hor, it is likely to be a baby girl! Hahaha. I don't know how true that is but that was what they said I had when I was carrying my little girl. :P Whatever the case, do take care and drink more milk and anything that you crave for!! :D

padicindy: Hahaha! I heard the exact opposite! I have been told mothers look worse when carrying girls because of clashing hormones or something. Heh. But I have also been told that since I've had such bad morning sickness that I might be carrying a girl. Anyway, I'll be happy with either a girl or boy! =) You take care too for the last stretch!
