Babymoon

A mid-week post because we are taking the rest of the week off! Babymoon it is! 😀
We are traveling to Milwaukee and Chicago for the Labor Day weekend. Actually we are leaving tomorrow, so it’s an extended weekend! Lots of sight-seeing and walking is on the cards. I just hope I’m able to keep up and not feel like taking a nap every 2 hours. You know, pregnancy has literally lessened my stamina in one-fourth (not even half!). It’s not fun at all.. I miss my strength so bad, I can’t even… 😦
Anyhow, I’m going to complete 27 weeks of pregnancy this weekend. And soon will enter the third trimester. They say, that’s when the real fun begins! Honestly, I can’t wait for the next 3 months to pass. Only if time would pass at our will!

We took these pictures the next day I got my hair trimmed. Which is why, the silky smooth strands.. Otherwise, as you are quite aware by now that my hair have a mind (and mood) of their own, and being silky straight is definitely not one of them! (cue: my natural hair texture). Whilst on the subject, I’m seriously considering going semi-blonde. Maybe next month or so! 😉
P.S. 26 weeks pregnant today.

Should You Wear Heels while Pregnant?

Should You? Would You.. wear heels during pregnancy? What’s your verdict? Yes or No?
Personally I would. I do. However, here are some points to remember to be on the safe side –

  • The heels shouldn’t be very high (say 4.5 inches or higher). Personally, my limit is 4 inches.
  • Pencil heels are a bad idea for posture and (the ever persistent) back pain during pregnancy. It’s wise to opt for comfortable heel types like kitten heels, block heels, cone heels, pumps etc.
  • You should be quite comfortable (and habitual) wearing them.
  • Be VERY careful while climbing stairs in heels. Hold the railing (or someone’s hand) just to be safe.
  • Don’t wear heels if you plan to spend the day walking or standing for long hours (like sight-seeing or downtown strolling etc). Do a favor to your back, and wear those trusted flats.
  • Completely avoid wearing heels if you are suffering with swollen feet or back pain.

That’s it! If you keep in mind these few points, I think wearing heels in pregnancy should be safe!
Personally, I am still comfortable wearing heels (though I do not walk in them a lot). I have like 40 pairs of heels simply sitting in my shoe closet starting at me like ‘Do you still love us?’ It only makes sense to take them out for a spin once a week or so on coffee or brunch dates! 😉
P.S. 25 weeks pregnant here.

Finally Gave In

I gave in. Finally. I had to. After all these months of resistance, I gave in and bought a pair (actually two!) of maternity jeans. Initially I thought of not wearing denim pants at all once the bump starts increasing. I thought I would simply rely on my linen pants, loose fitting dresses and stretchable skirts etc. But then, there were days when I really missed wearing a good pair of jeans. I used to look at the pile of my regular (now old) jeans, and sigh.. thinking when will I be able to wear them again! Since all my regular pants are no where close to my waist-line anymore! So I finally took a deep breath and brought two pairs – a skinny fit (my choice) and a boot cut fit (husband’s choice).
The only thing holding me back was that these pants won’t be of much use to me post-delivery, but then I ready of a lot of blogs, where women talked about wearing the maternity pants way after their deliveries (since obviously the belly doesn’t go back to ‘flat’ the next day of delivery). Well that made sense and so here it is!
P.S. Your girl is 21 weeks preggo here! The jeans and the loose blouse are hiding the bump quite nicely, I must say.
P.P.S. Every week it feels like I’m achieving a new milestone. To think of it, I keep getting closer to holding my babe in my arms. 🙂

Blog turns 4

My (cute little) Blog turned 4 last week! Yikess!! I celebrated that night. At home. Cooked Pasta. Husband and me devoured. Clicked zero pictures. Sorry, no proof! 😛

Now that another milestone has been achieved, let’s move on! It was a bright Sunday morning. After gulping a huge/delicious brunch at an ocean-view cafe in my city, (can’t you see I love Florida??) we strolled on the ocean-walk, clicked pictures, spent an hour or so just talking, and admiring the view and weather. Such Sundays are the best, I tell you!
