  • Random Thoughts on Pregnancy: Part 2

    Baby at 13 weeks 

    -I’m convinced all the running I did in February and March is the reason why I got pregnant (well the running and God). silly 

    -Subway veggie delights are my new best friend. I’m amazed that’s the only thing I can repeatedly eat without feeling like crap. I started eating them during the worst part of the first trimester and still love them now 17 weeks in!

    -I’m actually looking forward to looking more pregnant. I just look really full all the time -like major ddongbae action. 

    -Suseok oppa has been amazing, accommodating, angelic even. I’m so thankful for his love and care for me! I know he’ll be an amazing dad. However, I question my tolerance of pain, annoyance and lack of sleep.

    -We were having the hardest time thinking of names so we gave up and will try again when we find out the sex of the baby. All the names I “claimed” for my future children when I was younger don’t seem appropriate or go well with oppa’s last name.

    -I love that my parents call the baby Jin Su/Su Jin! They took our Korean names and put them together to make up a boy’s name and girl’s name for fun. 

    -The phantom twitching in my left leg above my knee and in my left butt cheek had me pretty freaked out but after a quick search on Dr. Google I found out this is only the beginning in the random aches and pains that happen during pregnancy. shocked 

    -Repeatedly I find myself saying “I feel like an alien has taken over my body” to explain how I feel. kekeke 

    -Family/friends’ reactions to the photo above:

    “Whoa the baby is definitely Korean -big head and short legs!”

    “You’re having a Sour Patch Kid!”
