What to Expect...

When You're Expecting... is the title of the very famous book for pregnant ladies. I've skimmed through it a few times but after reading about "what to expect", I'd start experiencing all the symptoms that expecting moms were supposed to have, backaches, leg-cramps, hormonal episodes :-P

Baby's doesn't seem to want to make an appearance any time soon. Guess it's too comfy in there! Mr. F accompanied me to the last doctor's appointment. She told us she encourages C-sections because apparently it saves babies the trauma of natural delivery and helps them get into Grammar School. Mr. F was incensed but luckily, his humor kicked in... we had a good laugh in the car!

I've been eating panjeeri and food laden with ghee but all it does is put me to sleep... Secretly ordered pizza today :-P

Maternity Leave

I've been home for exactly one week... and it's not as bad as I expected. I'm enjoying the break even though it's really warm and I can't really do much or get around without bumping into things :-P

In-laws are visiting from Lahore and they've taken over the kitchen and general household management so I basically just sit around, skype with my cousins and eat lots of ice cream and milkshake. Baby shopping is complete and now we're just waiting for the little one to arrive...

I'm not "ready"... I don't think anyone ever is but I hope Inshalah, everything goes smoothly... A big thank you to my dearest Mr. F for putting up with me for the last 6 months. At times I was pretty hard to handle but he did a decent job of sticking around and being patient... And to my dearest mother, thanks for always being there for me... I can never ever repay you for all that you've done but only say, "thank you" from the bottom of my heart.
