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? 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.

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!
