Caved in

After 5 months of no medication, I caved in n had Tylenol for this damn rib pain. It's killing me, n it doesn't seem like Tylenol is doing anything to make it better. I don't know how I'll fall asleep tonight :(

I really need to start wearing maternity pants now. Even tho I somehow managed to squeeze myself into my pre-pregnancy skinny jeans (fly open, of course!) it was not a wise or comfortable decision to make. Either that or I only wear yoga pants n sweats for the remaining 3.5 months. Shilpa didi gave me some maternity pants, need to go dig into that stock n pull em out!

2/3 the way there!

On my 26th week...I'm 2/3 the way there. I finally started creating my registry. Right now it contains 23 blankets n 12 burping cloths... But it's a step in the right direction. I'll short list after that.
My feeling of fainting continues to debilitate. It's really frustrating bc it's so unpleasant. I cant do anything but lie down n wait for it to go away in its own time.
Puchku continues to kick like crazy. Last night he was nonstop for like 2 hrs, kicking so hard! I was trying to talk him into falling asleep so I could sleep too... Miraculously he listened n stopped kicking. He must've just tired himself out by then :)

Pregnancy Boredom

I think I've hit that point where I'm just feeling bored with the pregnancy ... there are no new 'landmarks' to look forward to ... we already know the sex of the baby, I can feel him kick (a lot!), King has felt him kick, I've even seen my tummy move on the outside when baby kicks (I still love seeing that) ... there's nothing new we're going to discover about baby between now and the day he's born (sigh!).

That and I feel like I've been pregnant forever. Back aches are still there, but getting regular massages seems to be helping. Been feeling a lot of faint lately, which is definitely debilitating ... I need to further slow down my life ... to be honest, I don't think I've slowed down that much, maybe that's the problem.

Oh well, I guess I should start amusing myself by planning out the Baby Shower ... and more importantly, figuring out the five million things we need to (and don't need to) buy before baby comes ... !

Cutie Baby

I went to the doctor today, and at one point some of the tests they were doing were hurting, so I immediately tensed up and was trying to calm myself through my breathing. At that moment I noticed that baby totally started kicking so hard ... he was totally freaking out! It was really cute, and sad at the same time ... it surprised me how connected baby's emotions are to mine ... that because I immediately tensed up, instantaneously he reacted to it, in such an obvious & deliberate way. My bechara baby, he freaked out :-) I can't wait till he comes ... I feel like this pregnancy's been going on forever already ... !

6 months

I just realized that I'll be six months pregnant this week. Thank God... I'm getting so huge, it's becoming embarrassing to say 5 months only!
This past weekend when we went to Vegas, we went to see Cirque du Soleil's 'KA' which was one of the most spectacular shows I've ever seen in my life, by the way. Baby was kicking throughout the entire 1.5 hours! I was laughing thinking abt how tired he must be after 1.5 hrs on non-stop action, hahahha. I dunno, it was a cute thought to me. He's been very active lately. I feel him kicking at all hours... In the middle of the night, early morning, etc.
Last night the kicks were so huge, I thought to myself, 'you have to be able to see this on the outside.' I looked at my bare tummy, and I could see my tummy quivering every time he kicked! I was so excited :) I called over Brahma to see it but he wasn't able to see it; the movement is still very subtle.
Anyway, entering the last month of 2nd trimester. I can't believe how much larger I'm going to get; how is this even possible??
Had an absolutely fantastic bday weekend in Vegas with the fam-- one of my best bdays ever! Joel Rubochon's dinner will be a meal that I will remember for the rest of my life--WOW.
Exhausted today after teaching 5 hrs of kathak. I sat pretty much the whole time, but just yelling for 5 hrs is exhausting in itself. Baby Shivaranjini (Guru Ji & Celine didi's 7 week old daughter) was brought to class today, so I decided to be brave and hold her. I was able to put her to sleep in my godi... That was good for my self esteem. I'm so scared of newborns. Wait, does a 7 week ok'd not count as a newborn??? Well, I think the first 4-6 weeks are what I'm scared of holding now. That whole lack of neck support scares me. But I figure i'll learn it by default when it comes to my own!
