I can't see my toes anymore, my toes and the rest of what's under me, have effectively been obscured frm my sight now that I'am in my eighth month of pregnancy!! ( which of course calls for more pedicure sessions since I can't see them that means I can't clean them properly and the vain pot in me would not step out with icky toes!) heheheh also I just love a good pedicure session! And the only shoes I can manage to wear now are only open toed flats and flip flops which are about two sizes bigger because my feet tend to get swollen so much.
Its funny how when I first discovered that I was pregnant, I swore that I would not let myself go and just continue to be the vainpot that I'am. I swore that I was going to be one of those hip fashionable pregnant ladies and just sashay all fashionably perfect throughout my pregnancy. God of course had other plans and I guess wanted me to eat some humble pie.
The first few months were difficult for me to even get up from bed, as I had bad morning sickness sessions, and it took a lot of effort just to get dressed. I wore a lot of kurungs and no makeup and everyone who knew me well thought that I was going to expect a boy the way I was not in the mood for 'anything'.
I just wanted to sleep and lie down most of the time since my body ached so much and the rest of me just refused to function the way I wanted it to function! When I entered my fifth and sixth month I began to discover small little things that could still make me look a little human like the ' malas tudung' ( like the one I'am wearing in the picture I posted that's my brother Illias btway.) as my mama calls it.. which I could just snap on whenever I needed to go out. And I slowly began to incorporate small little dressy comfortable things -- - in the end what was most important was COMFORT!
Not to say that you can't be fashionable while your preggers, but torturing yourself and your body and putting your unborn baby at risk just to achieve that standard is certainly not worth it. I have yet to take pictures of some of the comfortable dressy things that you can incorporate into your wardrobe while preggers..but as soon as I can manage it I'll post them here!
