29 Weeks

At 29 weeks, my baby has been really active in my tummy! My baby now weighs around 2 1/2 lbs and is about the size of a butternut and about 15 inches long according to my baby app.  If you are pregnant too, you may notice that heartburn and constipation may take center stage by now. Reason is because the pregnancy hormone progesterone relaxes smooth muscle tissue throughout your body, including your gastrointestinal tract. This relaxation, coupled with the crowding in your abdomen, slows digestion, which can in turn cause gas and heartburn- especially after a big meal. Luckily I do not have any major complains about those two symptoms. 

Since I'm slowly feeling the weight and pressure on my legs, I avoid wearing any type of heels. Here I'm wearing a pair of gladiator sandals by Fergie (yes as in the artist from Black Eyed Peas!) I got them at Nordstrom Rack for a good deal. Lately, I've been quite weary of buying any shoes because a lot of women have shared that their feet size change during and after pregnancy. Although some say their feet size go back to normal,  still some women said theirs never did. In my case, this is my first baby so I have no idea whether my feet will go back to normal size. For now, I can still wear my normal size which is 7.5 in some brands but in others I feel more comfort in wearing size 8. Thus, I try to hold off on my buying any shoes for now, expensive ones especially!

But if you cannot resist the urge to shop for shoes (yes I'm a guilty preggy), I recommend buying a pair that's open toe. That way your feet has room for about half a size up or down.  I also recommend getting one that has great sole support. You won't believe how sore your feet will begin to feel as you begin to gain more weight so good sole support is recommended! And again, I would refrain from buying those designer investment pieces for now. You don't want them to end up as meer displays on your shoe closet!

26 Weeks

So at 26 weeks pregnant my weight has been yoyo-ing between 126 -130 pounds and I have no idea why! Many say it's probably just water.. But really?! 4 lbs of water? Wow!
Anyway I'm still feeling good! No swelling, or fatigue at this point. My only complain would be my skin being a little bit more oilier than usual which means I am breaking out a little bit. I notice that I'm breaking out on the sides of my face and I think it's because I've been sleeping either on my left or right side. 

Yeah, one of the things you're not able to do when you're with baby is to sleep on your back. According to my doctor, it's because the weight or your belly would press against a major vein in your spine which then affects your circulation and prevent oxygen from flowing not only to your legs but to your baby too and we don't want that. So I have been trying my best to adjust to the sideways sleeping position with the help of an oversized body pillow (thank god for those things!)

As for figuring what to wear, I noticed that my clothes are sitting on my belly differently now so my dresses and tops are appearing shorter than usual. Every top I own seems to look like a crop top! I swear I now know what it's like be like winnie the pooh. A little chubby, with a big belly and a crop top but still very happy! =)

Until my next post. Thanks for dropping by!
