Week 21

week 20

week 21

From these photos, it doesn’t look like I grew much from last week to this week but I feel bigger and I can no longer say that I have a pudge. Some days I feel great and I forget that I am pregnant, but char siu bao will give me a tiny little kick me to remind me that she’s still there! Other days, I feel like I am in a baby brain haze (today is one of those days) but it is not so bad because everyone has been so sweet and understanding!

I am really grateful to have friends who are looking out for me. Some of our friends who have recently had babies have been passing along some good advice and a lot of Jin’s friends who already have kids cannot wait to give us their good hand me downs (yess!).

I also feel really grateful to have a friend to be pregnant with! Juli is only 2 weeks ahead of me and we have been checking in on each other to see how we’re doing! Juli, John, Jin and I finally went for a lovely dinner together last night and it was so nice to be with friends who are going through the same stages as you are! Juli and I plan to meet regularly for tea and hopefully complete some baby sewing projects together! I can’t wait!

Now back to editing and preparing for a weekend of City of Craft! Hope to see you there!

  6. There really is a *big* difference in just one week! ;) I can definitely notice it.

    Wow, like Melinda said, "it's really happening now!".

    You look beautiful, Celine. The loveliest baby bump.

  7. oooh..Char Sui Bao has grown in the 1 week! Definitely more noticeable. How are the stretchy pants?

  8. i can totally tell the difference in size! (maybe this means my inner calling is actually to be a midwife? haha!)

    i was wondering if you and juli were on the same track, time-wise, for the births. so glad you can both enjoy the stages together! plus, y'know, you can have playdates together later. :)

  9. Looking forward to seeing baby sewing projects in the future (: You do actually look bigger than last week too~ Hope you have a good weekend!
