Here's Hoping....

That I will get back into shape without much effort after I give birth!

A common problem of women after giving birth is getting back into their pre-pregnancy weight and shape. I could proudly say that I didn't need any diet nor exercise, and never had to ask anyone for the best diet pills since I slimmed down to my pre-pregnancy weight after 3 months of breastfeeding (I breastfed for a total of 1 year and 10 1/2 months) my firstborn. I'm hoping that this would be the case too with this baby I'm carrying right now. It certainly looks promising, as except for my tummy, my body still looks quite slim. My weight gain has been steady but not overly fast. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I've seen my pictures from the time when I was still single, and man, was I slim then! People don't mistake me for being pregnant then, and I didn't have a hard time looking for suitable clothes to wear. After I gave birth, people keep asking me if I'm already pregnant with my second baby even if I wasn't. Hmmp! People can be so tactless! Anyway, I finally got pregnant and I got the excuse I needed (and wanted)!

I'm so thankful that we're going to have another little angel. We certainly feel blessed and humbled to be given another little baby to love.
