Reached Halfway

That’s right folks I’m halfway through this pregnancy. Currently at 20 weeks and 6 days, I am looking forward for the rest of the months to pass faster. (I swear it feels like I’ve been pregnant for ages now!!). It’s not a hell lot of fun, I tell you. There are crappy days, there are energetic days, there are foodie days, and then there are just uneventful days (need not mention the mood swings). No two days are similar. The only constant factor are my workouts. I am holding on to it as tightly as possible. I don’t want to let go though laziness and fatigue keeps hovering over my head ready to hijack me, but I’m not ready to give in yet. Yes, I do take breaks, relax at a little, take naps as and when required. Nevertheless, my strength has diminished to half its capacity and so has my stamina. Breathlessness is so common, that sometimes I get breathless just by sitting on the couch watching TV (smh..)! Weird things happen during pregnancy. My body is changing rapidly and I have accepted it. Yes, I understand that everyone is different, everyone’s experience is different, but I am allowed to share mine. šŸ˜‰
Anyways, its been quite a few weeks since my last post, so let me get you all on the same page here with what all that has happened in the past month!

This seems like ages ago. We went out for a movie that evening (followed by a finger licking Mexican dinner) when dear husband clicked this impromptu picture of mine. I think I was asking him if my bump was visible yet. Well, clearly it wasn’t that substantial then! šŸ™‚

If you read my previous few blogs, you would know that my mom visited me for a month. This picture is from a hot sunny afternoon when I took her to visit the Ripley’s museum and few other local attractions. It doesn’t seem like it, but the skirt was a bad idea (it started feeling uneasy on the waist after a few hours). That is when I realized it was time to re-arrange my wardrobe.

Another day out with mother. We drove to St. Augustine on a hot Sunday to visit the very famous castle (google it). Accidentally we both wore blue (I promise it wasn’t planned).

You see how the bump is growing! Day after day I don’t realize much, but now that I am posting these pictures (in the order of occurrence), I am actually noticing the gradual change. This was taken when we went to La Madeleine for coffee and croissants and it started pouring cats and dogs! What a romantic evening it was..

This was taken on July 4th. I know, I know this is not much of a red, white and blue outfit (more of a blue and white outfit). I could have actually swapped my handbag (or shoes) in red color. Anyways, we had family visiting us and July 4th seemed a perfect idea for a picnic outdoors followed by scenic fireworks. Fun memories!
