Week 33 Pregnancy X ChristmasSunday, December 28, 2014
Merry Christmas! This is pretty much my favourite season of the year and as an added bonus, D and my closest friend's birthdays both fall on Christmas Eve ♥︎ Unfortunately, this is the first year we didn't make it to church :/ Oh well, it was still a wonderful week filled with gatherings with family and friends. Got D these customised Clash of Clans macarons for his birthday as well! It took so much effort for me to keep it a secret cos I was so excited about it! If you're interested in getting customised macarons or cupcakes you can check out my friend's new bakery via instagram, @trevorsbakery :) She was the one who made this, also got her to make Christmas themed macarons for my friends as well.
The downside this week is that I'm starting to experience horrible insomnia and really bad cramps. So I had to pace myself and try to go out for shorter hours while slotting rest days in between. My insomnia is soo bad right now I'd be happy if I can sleep for 3hours straight without waking up. Spoke to my gynae about it and she says it's completely normal and my body is preparing itself for the time when baby comes; by then I'd have to wake every couple of hours to feed/change diapers etc. So yeah a lot less pictures this holiday lol, not too keen to post up much photos of my tired fatty face hehh.

Favourite gift I received this year is this Baby Book! ♥︎
I was really happy to get this because I've been meaning to DIY a baby book since the first trimester haha, but always super fail. Now I finally have a pretty book to document all her ultrasound scans and little milestones like first laugh, first step etc :)
I've also been following the whole social media saga ( xiaxue and gushcloud ) these couple of days as well. This and a couple of things that happened to me made me realise that ultimately people just see what they wish to see. A lot of times even with cold hard facts of how fake or evil some people are, if somebody else (whom you're sharing your information with) still wants to be okay with the fake and evil, they'll find a reason to. I guess my Christmas wish this year is that I'll be able to let go of some grudges and bitterness that has been troubling my heart for some time, and that I'll never ever have to face or hear of 2 people I really dislike ever again.
Merry Christmas and may your lives be free of hate! ♥︎
