Baby Chronicles #2

I am 25 weeks + 4 days pregnant today.

This photo was taken at 25 weeks last Friday, the day I officially became an Australian citizen. Again this is from hubby's facebook page.

I rarely weigh myself at home and rely more on how my clothes fit rather than the weighing scale, but for the purpose of chronicling stuff. Here are all my OB weigh ins:
Pre-pregnancy weight : 47 kg (estimate)
19 February 2013 (12 weeks + 4 days) : 48.7 kg
18 March 2013 (16 weeks + 3 days) : 49.1 kg
16 April 2013 (20 weeks + 4 days) : 52.8 kg
14 May 2013 (24 weeks + 4 days) : 54.9 kg
We were on an 11-night cruise between 23 March and 3 April which would explain the 3.7kg weight gain between 16 and 20 weeks. I overindulged on the food and had multiple snacks every day. I don't think my tummy was ever empty on that cruise ship, and I barely did any exercise while on that ship.

To make things worse, I seem to have developed a sweet tooth. My breakfast of choice is peanut butter with sugar sandwich, and I am currently craving chocolate mud cake. Of course, I still love pork - fatty pork belly cooked the Filo way.

I'm afraid my poor baby's taste buds will not be inclined to like broccoli and other veggies if I keep this up. So in an effort to eat more veg, here's what I had for lunch yesterday:

It's not the healthiest of salads with the dressing and the croutons, but it's a start. Eating veg is a hard ask for someone who dreams of Filipino feasts, lechon and halo-halo, but wakes up right before she gets to eat them. With the back pain, the soreness and the frustrating dreams, it's no wonder I crave comfort food.
