Babies are bits of star-dust blown from the hand of God. Lucky is the woman who knows the pangs of birth for she has held a star. – Larry Barretto

While being pregnant can oftentimes be an uncomfortable experience, there are moments when it feels so magical and thrilling that I never want it to end. I know one thing is for certain — there’s no other experience in life like it. This whole nine months of pregnancy will change my life, for the better, I’m sure.

To celebrate the joys and beauty of pregnancy, my B and I planned to do our own maternity boudoir photography.

Pregnancy Diary: 30 Weeks and 4 Days (October 4)

Diary Entry | 30 September 2015

I’m on my 30th week! We had a routinely checkup to check my weight, blood pressure, baby’s size and baby’s heartbeat. All seems OK except that I already have edema (swelling) which usually appears around 35th week. Eeek! My OB reminded me to monitor my weight and not to gain anymore weight. My pre-pregnancy weight is 144lbs and today I’m already 172lbs. That’s 28lbs weight gain! My target is 30lbs until I deliver baby on December 9, which is my 40th week. I have 10 more weeks to go with only 2lbs weight gain allowance. Saddest checkup EVER! Doc said I may have passed the gestational diabetes test but I may be prone to high blood pressure by the time I go into labor. So that’s a scary thought. That’s a NO-NO! So we left the hospital while I was feeling defeated. All this time I thought I am on the right track with everything about my pregnancy. I guess I let some Jabee and McDo slipped their way through. Now it’s back to square one, I should be mindful of what I will eat and drink. 10 more weeks of foodie sacrifice and I will be able to hold my cute little baby in my arms. Now that’s a good reason to keep in mind. *smiles*
