Happy November!

October was a great month — personally and otherwise. I’m pregnant, and my baby’s going to be born in mid-June. And yes, I found out that I didn’t gain as much weight as I thought. I know it’s shallow, but it made me feel better. :)

Yesterday I met a friend of mine who’s pregnant with her second child. She told me my doctor is really famous, which I didn’t know since I chose her for her excellent English. Then my friend added, “She’s also very good at performing abortions.” It’s a totally cultural thing, and she didn’t mean anything malicious. She was doing her best to reassure me that my doctor’s a renowned expert in every aspect of pregnancy and that I should feel 100% anshin (peace of mind and spirit) about my first pregnancy. But it just sounded so hilarious, I burst out laughing. (So did Hero Material when I told him.)

As for non-personal news, I can’t share any yet. But I’ll definitely update everyone as soon as I can.

On the writing front, I’m trying to go through All’s Fair 1st beta comments — alas, there are more issues than I’d expected — and do NaNoWriMo this month. I’m trying not to do to much — my brain’s turned into mush and I tire easily these days, even when I’m just reading a book! So I’m trying to do little bit at a time and rest frequently so that I don’t feel exhausted.

(Other than being tired easily, foggy-brained and sleepy, I’m doing pretty well. No morning sickness or anything like that. So I count myself lucky. :) )

Hope everyone has a lovely and productive November!

    Thanks LOL.

    I wish it’s too early for foggy brain, but alas, I’m afraid my brain’s totally useless at times. I wonder if it’s more to do with the fact that I’m constantly sleepy.

    Once again, congratulations!

    I didn’t much gain weight in the first couple of trimesters. It all came at the end! That said, I didn’t gain a horrendous amount of weight during either pregnancy. I gained more with my son than with my daughter, but I found it took about the same amount of time to lose it again. I’ve heard that from several friends.

    The hardest part for me has been toning up. After two babies, my tummy is never going to be as flat as it once was, unless I resort to surgery. I also notice that I have to be more careful about what I eat these days, although that might be as much an age thing as post-pregnancy.

    Anyway, take good care of yourself.
