Halfway Updates

***

Come Saturday and I'd have completed 20 weeks. Phew. Another 20 weeks to go before this tiny person decides to make an entry. Probably, after the baby is born, I'd wish I could stuff it back inside just so I can sleep like a buffalo in a swamp the way I do now. What a lovely mummy I am.

But right now, I just want the rest of the 20 weeks to fly by quickly. Currently, I'm in that state when astute ladies are able to figure out I'm pregnant and the mean ones wonder if I'm just fat or if that's a baby bump. I'm not dressed in some Cannes-like gown, so it's not all that obvious yet. There was one woman who was staring at my stomach so pointedly when I was on my walk that I breathed out completely and gave her what she wanted to see. Yes, I'm round. Thank you very much.

One of my neighbours gave me her home BP monitoring device and it turns out that there is nothing wrong with my BP at all. Possibly, I need to have my head examined, but that's about it. It's usually around 110/70, which is ideal for the 2nd trimester. I also made M check his BP on that to make sure that it wasn't giving me false readings. Yippie.

I now sleep with pillows all around me like a zamindar. I've also eaten so many dry fruits and nuts by now that I feel like I'm from Sowcarpet.

I have my 20 weeks scan scheduled for this Thursday. Obviously, they won't tell you if the baby is a boy or a girl, but maybe I can make out from the screen, eh? I've been talking to this baby all along under the assumption that it's a girl. What if it ends up being a boy? I hope he doesn't feel bad about it later in his subconscious mind and all :|

That's all for now. I'm going to be conscientious and reply to comments on the previous posts. Bye!

I won't be surprised if the child turns out to be supremely humorous just like his/her mommy: the following lines just cracked me up.

"I now sleep with pillows all around me like a zamindar. I've also eaten so many dry fruits and nuts by now that I feel like I'm from Sowcarpet."

"What if it ends up being a boy? I hope he doesn't feel bad about it later in his subconscious mind and all :|" :D

Take care. :)

Maybe, I should have said "witty". "Humorous" sounds rather bland! :D

Yay congrats on 20 weeks! Think it would be hard to tell sex of baby on your own from sonogram unless you know what to look for. I do, so I could possibly tell but I will not be at your sonogram :)

I used to take so much of food that my friends said that if i have girl cud b called "Aarthi" (one who gulps any food that comes across her way) and if it is a boy "Aakrant" (-do-). Good luck on the following months... I too had a post on my experience during this time - http://zradar.wordpress.com/2010/10/15/the-long-9-months/

And yes..pls do all the shopping, all the outings, all the sleeping that u want now itself, for the nxt yrs you are gonna be occupied, so occupied that u'll definitely feel like stuffing her back into the tummy again..enjoy!!

Yay! :) Congrats on the 20th week! :) I'm sure the rest of the 20 weeks will fly by.. before you know it, all your "zamindar" sleep will be gone, and I'm sure your girl baby (I love girl babies too) will keep you awake for hours together :P

All the best! :)

All the best for the next twenty weeks- enjoy all the dry fruit!
Good about the BP- your BP's probably allergic to doctors- something called white-coat hypertension.

Nisha said...
