Oh well, I suppose that's fine since this is our first baby after all! And right now, all I'm looking forward to is my trip back to Singapore and Krabi, where I get to eat all my favourite food!!!
I haven't put on much weight, maybe 2-3kg so far, which is cool! I reckon its got something to do with the fact that I lost 2 kg in my first trimester (don't ask me how), but I've regained those 2 lost kg and put on another 2 more. So that makes it a nett 2 kg gain.
Anyway, for the people who are interested to see how my belly looks now, here are 2 photos that I took just one day shy of my 17-week mark. I have also bought myself a Doppler which you can use to hear baby's heartbeat. Unfortunately I have been unsuccessful in recording it on my laptop so that you can hear it too! Its the coolest sound ever! Like galloping horses. :)
You can definitely see the rounded belly now. My usual belly does not protude that much. But I do have admit that I'm still in the "Is she or isn't she?" awkward stage. Haven't felt any baby movements yet but I heard that most women feel movements only in their 20th week.
Can't fit into any of my regular jeans anymore and I have resorted to wearing my only maternity pants every single day! I think I got to get bigger before I can actually fit into maternity wear properly. Right now, they kinna hang loose on me.
That's me at 17 weeks
For comparison, you can see my previous weeks' bumps
So what do you think? Is it going to be a boy or girl??? Only a few more days before we find out! **Exciting**
