18 Weeks Pregnant - My new body

So the bun has been in the oven for 18 weeks already!

The morning sickness is down to a minimum, and I am starting to enjoy and be intrigued by the changes in my body.

Feeling Baby's movements has so far been the greatest thrill of course, and the movements are getting more frequent and obvious now. Just yesterday, while lying on my back, one part of my abdomen suddenly stretched upwards, creating a small little distinct bump! Needless to say, Roboman and I were highly amused, and did little pats in bid to communicate with the little one. After a while, the stretching felt a wee bit uncomfortable, so I turned to one side for a while, then flipped back again. Baby must have gotten the cue as the abdomen flattened out after that. heh

Another change that really amused me to no end is that my belly button has suddenly gotten shallower. I squealed when I first noticed, and look forward to more efficient cleaning of it as it continues to emerge. mwahahaha.

And oh, the boobs. Hmm. Let's just say even my mum is amused by the growth. While I'm not naturally very boobsy to begin with, I have since had to buy new bras, and remove whatever little paddings I've had in my current ones. Nice black laced nursing bras have been purchased too, just so that they can last me well into post-pregnancy. I just can't imagine myself wearing any of those flimsy looking beige coloured nursing bras that abound in maternity shops, but I really don't know if they are practically more useful. Hmm. Anyway, I am no longer able to fit into any of my bikini tops too, not decently anyway, and can only manage this swimsuit in the photo. It is roll down shorts, roll up top too, in order to accomodate the baby bump. I think this 'swimming outfit' will do for the rest of this pregnancy!

jacinta: Thanks sweetie!

lmxlb: slim?! You are so slim yourself my dear, and you're looking gorgeous! It is the angle of the shot plus the fact that I did lose quite a bit of weight. Am still about 1kg below pre-pregnancy weight =P

nuttyjas: Thanks dear. Yes it feels good to be more 'normal' these days.

imp: Yup, the boobs are rejoicing for sure! haha. And thanks for the reminder, rubbing cream/oil hasn't quite been worked into the system yet. I keep forgetting!

Good to read that things are settling in well. Enjoy the rest of your pregger journey. :)

Those auntie-looking beige bras are good for home-wear. U'll realised you need alot, due to leaks and what not.

beanbean: More changes in boob size! Oh dear, ok thanks for the tip. I better bear that in mind!

tiffany: Hello back from baby :)

lilsnooze: Oh boy, ok I didn't think about leaks =P Maybe I should get a few for home use then. Sounds like so much laundry to do when baby comes =P
