it probably doesn’t look much different in the photo, but in real life, the belly does expand. it’s wider and fuller. the baby’s movement is so visible that sometimes i feel embarrassed to walk around with tight clothings.
another thing that is different from the previous weeks are my swollen left foot. i heard it’s normal for pregnant women to have their feet and hands swollen. but it seems that my left side swells much larger than my right side. i have this puffy left foot that doesn’t fit into my sandals anymore, while the right side looks pretty close to normal. at the beginning, it freaked me out. but then ari and i found out that we can wrap it with hot towel to ease the swelling. so, it’s all good now.
i keep gaining weight ever since i get to the third trimester. and the lately, it goes on a steep curve… it’s kinda scary. hopefully, the weight gain will stop — or at least slow down — soon.
i’ve been taking photo every four week ever since i was 4-week pregnant. if it’s on the mark, the baby’s birth is on the 40th week. so, if she doesn’t come out early, i may have another photo to show on the 40th week… i wonder if it gets any bigger than this… maybe it will if i keep gaining weight like this.
