Wishful Thinking

Being an Indian, I do not wear as many Indian dresses as I should. However this past weekend, I wore one of the dresses gifted by my mom. (Thanks mom, love you!).
As the pregnancy is progressing, my discomforts are also increasing. The ‘special assistance’ needed in getting up, lying down, tying up shoes etc. is so inconvenient. I may not look huge in my pictures, but I feel HUGE. Seriously. And if you trust the scales, so far I’ve gained 22 pounds (10 kgs) since becoming pregnant (not bad.. eh!!). So obviously, I’m bound to feel gigantic. And in these remaining 7 weeks, baby is expected to gain more weight (fat), so let’s see how that goes!
Well, truth be told, I’m tired.
Tired of being pregnant.
Tired of looking for someone to tie my shoes for me.
Tired of not being able to workout.
Tired of having to take breaks and slow down every now and then.
Tired of huffing and puffing like an 80 year old.
Tired of the frequent bathroom visits. Sometimes its false alarm, which makes it even more annoying!
Tired of the back pain.
Tired of just feeling tired.
I just want these 40 weeks to go by fast and the baby to pop out. On time ofcourse. No, I don’t want her to come ‘early’. I just want these last few weeks to ‘fly’!
Is that possible? Do wishes come true? Please say yes!

P.S. Completed 33 weeks of pregnancy today.
P.P.S. Thanks to my father in law for taking these bomb pictures of us. Thanks Dad!

Kept for Ages

Writing this post on Friday evening sitting in my living room overlooking at the lake in our apartment complex which is currently filled to the brim! Hurricane Matthew has (thankfully) passed us and the weather is much stable now. The rain has stopped though it is still crazy windy outside. And if you are wondering, we are safe. Though (as expected) there are after-effects of the storm, I’m thankful to God that people are safe and the worst is over. It was one crazy day, if you ask me! I’ve never experienced anything like this before. Let’s just say nothing stands close to mother nature.
On today’s outfit – Again wearing a dress which has been hanging in my closet for a long time. I still have some left to use during this pregnancy  ;). Minimalism is my jam! Oh and these booties are so, so comfortable. Bought these on a whim while circling the aisles of a DSW store in my city. Love the color and the flat sole (which is kind of a necessity now-a-days considering my swollen belly).

Feels good to be back. I think of blogging almost daily, but then life happens. And then taking care of this body is an extra effort altogether. So much has changed since my last post. My Baby Shower happened. I entered third trimester of this pregnancy. Countdown has begun; 10 weeks left for my bubby to arrive! Just the thought gives me thrills! The anxiety of being a mother, the sleepless nights waiting for me, the love at first sight with my mini human – how can I not wait anxiously! Frankly, I’m scared too. This isn’t going to be easy (or fun) all the time, but I don’t care. When I feel the baby move and kick, all these fears vanish somehow. The motherly instincts are slowly kicking in..😉
Wearing a cocoon dress from Old Navy, which (again) is not a maternity dress. Just a regular dress with lots of room to accommodate my basketball belly!
P.S. 30 weeks pregnant today!

No Autumn in Sight

Autumn is no where to be seen. Who am I kidding! This is Florida. We will be lucky if we experience autumn for 5 days straight! Again, it’s my first year in this state, so I’m yet to experience it myself. The locals say that the weather stays warm till October and then suddenly cools down (skips to winter), which again would be very mild.
When I left Boston (this February), I was SO over snow, and I secretly wished to never come back to snow. Now look at me, hoping for the autumn season to arrive and waiting for the temperature to cool down. Frankly, I.m secretly missing the colder weather, and have no shame in accepting this! The leaves changing color, the weather cooling down, change in wardrobe, the beginning of festival season, the pumpkin spice coffees – ughh.. I’ want it all! NOW!!!  :(
P.S. 29 weeks pregnant today. 3rd trimester is hard (like really HARD). More on that in my next post!
