26 Week Pregnancy update by Shefali

Hello girls!

Hope everyone is doing great ๐Ÿ™‚
I am little better than before hurray! ๐Ÿ™‚ Week 26 means..this is the last week of my second trimester. Can’t believe that I will be entering THE third trimester next week. Now that winters are approaching time will move forward quickly. I am soo excited as well as nervous! Both my in-laws and parents still haven’t broken the pregnancy new to our relatives. Even my closest cousins do not know. Everybody seems to be too cautious about me. I am in no hurry to tell too.
Hubby has been very busy with office work and meetings this week hence we could not go out anywhere at all and my daily evening walks have taken a back seat too totally. I am just not able to walk because of so much pelvic pressure and breathlessness. I try and move around as much as possible at home. My doggies make sure that I am on my toes most of the time ๐Ÿ™‚
I met my best friend after almost 6 years. She stays in U.S now. She did not know about my pregnancy so it was super amazing to see the surprised expressions on her face and to meet her after soooo long. We were literally screaming with joy when we met ๐Ÿ™‚ I miss her lots! She’ll be coming back next Diwali when baby will be almost 11-12 months old!
I have started feeling that its going to be a baby boy. Few people commented too on my tummy’s shape and said boy as well. What do you guys think? Do let me know in the comments below ๐Ÿ™‚ We just want a healthy baby. Gender does not matter. Though I am super curious to know now ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am tired of shopping for neutral colours and NEED some pink or blue. I wish we were allowed to know in the eighth month atleast. The mystery is so not exciting to me whereas hubby does not want to know at all. He wants to experience the surprise.
I am bringing a little change to my pregnancy updates from this week ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you all will like it.

  7. Hi Shef,Congratulations!!I have been reading all your posts regularly.

    Anamika,Kudos to you for starting such a forum. Can you all please suggest me on how to fight morning sickness?

    • Having something sweet in the morning it helps..

    • thanks dear! thanks for reading ๐Ÿ™‚

      I had a really bad all day sickness with vomiting about 2 times a day atleast. Eating every two hours helped A LOT. I used to feel better the moment i used to eat. eat even if u feeling puky. U ll feel better after eating.
      I used to eat 2-3 britannia 50-50 biscuits(sweet and salty) the moment i used to get up. It helped me everytime. I could NOT live with out. Try it! Basically you need to find a food item that works for u in the morning ๐Ÿ™‚ Once you are up have breakfast within half hour.

  8. you look gorgeous glowing. i feel you wil have a boy. also buy yellow orange red color clothes… kids look so good in bright colors.

  9. Oh I miss second trimester. I am at 31 weeks now. So tiring it is! You are really looking super sexy! And that glow. Your bump does look like a boy bump, its kind of pointy. I show as much as you at 31 and am carrying quite low.. Lets compare when we actually deliver

  10. Ana,its really really bad at my end.I have extensive food aversions taking some medicines:(

  11. Thanks Shef and Ana!!the only thing is I am out of India currently.and i dont get anything Indian here not even britannia biscuits.i feel like eating tangy things like aam papad and i am planning come back to delhi in dec 1st week.doctors in europe dont give medicines easily and i live only on fruits.hope to feel better.

    What with Doxinate shef?is it safe to be taken in earlier weeks too?

    • Doxinate is anti nausea pill and completely safe to take for all nine months! U can take upto three pills a day.. it makes u sleepy though..

  12. Thanks Shef!!Can you also email me your doctor’s details?I need to have a doctor once i am back.
