I threw up my dinner last night right into my food bowl. Does that sound gross? I guess it does =P All the good food gone to waste. Today, I had a mini-blackout after lunch. Think it was the heat plus my overall stress and tiredness.

Decided to not risk driving and took a cab home instead. Now a trip has to be made to get the car back, out from the office's carpark. Hmmm...

Anyway, I never say no to curries these days. I have been eating more Malay and Indian cuisines, and opting for Chinese curries too when available. There's just something about the richness, the spices and the fragrances that I am hooked too.

I know someone out there is going to tell me that eating all of that will give my baby bad skin. Sighs. I am tired of feeling like I am already a bad mum. All the 'shoulds' and 'should-nots' is draining and making me feel inadequate and lacking confidence of what is to come.

Thankfully Roboman gave me a long pep talk yesterday, setting me straight, and giving my languishing self-confidence a boost. I thank God for my husband.

Whatever gave you the idea that you are a bad mommy-to-be???!! Let people say all they want. You just take care of yourself and Bubbles will feel the love! Hugs!

Don't start thinking you're a bad mum. =) And whoever says eating curries will give baby bad skin?! Nonsense. Don't believe it. You'll probably get more of all these "advice" when you deliver so it's a good time to learn how to filter out the things that you don't want to hear.

I've heard my share of all these stuff but everything turned out fine. Ultimately, God is in control of everything, including your family and Bubbles.

Remember that. =)

You take care in the meantime. Try to catch up next week if you're ok.

dun worry so much abt it. if it were true that eating curry gives babies bad skin, then all the indian babies would have very bad skin, no? anyway, i had loads of laksa while i was expecting eliana :P
you'll be a great mum!

Don't worry too much! I'm sure your baby will be a very blessed one. :)

i've never heard of curries giving babies bad skin. some indians i know have very good complexions! i don't think their folks gave up their curries during pregnancy. ;)

as long as baby and you are healthy, it's all that matters. better than you can't eat anything, right? that'll be more worrying..

hope you feel better soon!
