My little pregnancy bump started showing from week 11 onwards. During the first trimester - from week 6 until week 13, I was experiencing nausea with no vomitting. Other symptoms are fatigue, loss of appetite; and an enlargement of the breasts (I look at myself at the mirror and wonder at times when my breast will stop growing - it is darn huge for me!). Other than that, I have been enjoying my first trimester at the comfort of my home back in Melaka under my mom's nurturing care and love. Although I have no appetite, I feel constantly hungry every 2 hours or so; and my wonderful mother will prepare some food for me.
At times, I wonder whether there is really a baby growing inside me - it feels so surreal. I will eagerly wait for the next scan - I've seen the gynae more times that he reckoned, hehe. But he is a very patient and kind gentleman - I love him! Everytime after seeing my little miracle from the scan, I feel so alive and assured. And I will go home feeling contented and blessed. I started feeling some flutters in my tummy during the 14th week; at first I thought must be gas; but after several times, I was convinced it was the baby moving! It is such a subtle sensation. I can't wait to feel the real hard kick ;)
After the 12th week scan, we booked a room at Holiday Inn, Melaka to celebrate. I really loved the stay at Holiday Inn, Melaka - great service, great food, and great ambience. Here are some shots during my 12th week of pregnancy.
