Journey to Motherhood

I am 26 weeks pregnant now. The journey has been great so far.

When I tell people that I am going to move to a new house (which is still under renovation), I get questions and statements like:

"Aren't pregnant woman not supposed to move to a new house?"
"Pregnant woman should not enter an empty house"
"You shouldn't do renovation when you're pregnant"

I know that there're a lot of Chinese superstitious beliefs during pregnancy but I'm not a superstitious person. I think that those beliefs must have been created back in the olden days by someone with a motive. For example, maybe the pregnant woman is lazy, so she cooked up some story to say it's bad luck to help out in the house renovation. Or maybe there were some family politics like some monster-in-law who tried to keep her daughter-in-law away from meddling in her son's matter. I know it sounds like some Chinese soap opera but hey, anything could happen right?! Oh, don't let me start on the other superstitions I heard especially those food to avoid. Lol.

Talking about renovation, I'm really excited to move in to this new house. It's been progressing well lately and we all aim to move in before I'm due. There are still some stuff that we need for the house like made-to-measure curtains, cabinets, etc. So, I'm currently looking at some good bargain for some stuffs that we still need. If you know any, let me know. Sponsors are welcome too! :D

Okay. I digressed a little. Back to the pregnancy. It's thrilling to be going through something that I have not experienced before. I am just going with the flow. I do read here and there and I listen here and there. You know, when you're pregnant, there will be a flock of people around you giving you advises without you even asking for it. Then there are those type of people who thinks that they know-it-all which is kinda irritating.

The sad part of the pregnancy is that I do get lonely sometimes. That's because I can't hangout like before and I'm growing distant from my friends. That's normal I guess. I think every pregnant woman goes through the same thing. Good thing is that I only feel this way like 2% throughout of this pregnancy so far. Some had it worst and that got them into depression.

I can't wait to have my baby. Oh no, wait. I'm not ready for her yet. I still have a list of shopping to be done for her arrival. Gosh. I don't really like shopping now. Can someone shop for me, please? Haha!
