Week 26 PregnancyMonday, November 10, 2014
My monthly visit to the gynae was due a couple of days ago, and as usual we were really happy to get to see baby (thank you whoever invented the ultrasound system)!
Here's a picture of her in a very awkward position haha
(that big round thing facing down on the right side of the picture is her head :D)
We've also ordered a bunch of baby stuff that came in this week! I'm really really excited to dress her! Now I understand why most parents always end up spending all their money on their kids. Even the LV Alma BB bag I got in August was purchased with Kayla in mind ♥︎
I'm not sure if you guys experience this, feeling more excited when buying certain things for your babies? For me, one of the things that I really enjoyed shopping for was a baby stroller (don't judge my weirdness). It was one of those things that I researched a lot on before finally making the decision. Anyway, the stroller I really wanted is arriving tomorrow :))) Daniel's parents are helping us to bring it back from Japan because it's cheaper there! Decided on an Aprica one because it's one of the few brands that offer quality lightweight pieces. Am slowly ticking off more items on my baby checklist! :D
This is my dream stroller... ♥︎
Another baby related issue that's been on my mind (in a negative way this time) is my bulbous nose problem. It's getting so bad now even my gynae can see the difference :/ It's not as obvious in pictures unless you compare my pre-pregnancy and current photos side by side.
The Nose Knows?
Another facial distortion is the swollen nose. Although your doctor may consider it an old wives’ tale, anecdotal evidence from many moms suggests that a swollen, bulbous nose is a surefire predictor of a baby girl.
Thankfully for me when I checked with my doctor she didn't dismiss it as paranoia. So for those of you who are also experiencing this, it's basically bulbous due to water retention and will apparently go away once your baby is born! Seriously can't wait.
Guess that's about it for this week's update!
