Varalakshmi Pooja 2018 & 21 Weeks Bump Update - Baby #2

12:54:00 PM

Well, this years Varalakshmi Pooja was exciting to perform as we are in India with my family, I am pregnant again and mom to a 10 month old. Compared to last pregnancy my bump started showing up a lot early and I feel a lot more tired. I didn't have to prepare much as mom did almost everything and I had to take care of Kiara most of the time. Myself and mom started decorating for pooja a day before as we had Kiara running around and we mostly got done with things while she was taking her naps. The worst part was I was missing Jeet a lot this year.

What Fruit is the baby in Size? As long as a carrot and about 12 ounces! Although I feel I am carrying a watermelon inside!

Due Date :  January 2nd, 2019. Our first baby (Kiara) was 3 days later on my birthday.

How Far Long?  21 weeks today.

Gender : Will be finding out next month once I finally reach US.

Total Weight Gain/Loss : Up 7lbs. I think I was about on target for my other pregnancy as well. 

Stretch Marks : Not yet! I have few from my first one as I am a true believer that these are genetic and I am hoping they are just few or none with this second one!

On My Mind Currently : For my first pregnancy I had a lot of contractions and the moment doctor asked me to push the baby was out by 20 minutes.. I couldn't bear the pain so I wanted to get done with it as soon as possible before the doctor asks me to take a break. So this time it's gonna be without epidural too as I am pretty sure I can handle it myself again. I need to start prenatal yoga once I am back.

Swelling : Not yet!

Sleep : No sleep as I forgot how it feels like.

Food : Anything that's not healthy.

Symptoms : Not much except the pressure from my varicose veins!

Movement : Yes! All the time now a days.
