Blue Sunday...

Why doesn`t pregnancy look like this in Japan??

Natalie Portman (top) and Pink (bottom) are both gorgeous women who look amazing now that they are a little fuller and carrying babies.

They also both look very happy!!!

I had another bad week at the hospital, at my 31 week check-up. The doctor once again told me that I have gained too much weight, and asked me if I am taking care of my diet. I almost burst into tears... Has he ever been pregnant? Does he know what is feels like? No one likes to be told that they are overweight, but add in all these pregnancy hormones, and it felt like he whacked me right in the chest with a sledgehammer :(

What can I do? I don`t over eat, but of course I occasionally indulge in a Starbucks Matcha Latte or an an-pan (bread roll with red beans inside).

I have started drinking 2-3 litres of water a day (compared to the 1 litre I was drinking before) and we`ll see if that helps.

Honestly I am in two minds... on one hand I want to say `screw him` and just eat what I want and enjoy the last few weeks of my pregnancy. On the other hand, he wouldn`t be making such a big deal out of it if it wasn`t medically relevant and important, right? So I should try to lose a bit of weight (or at least not gain any more for a while).



  1. I think that your first reaction is best! Keep taking such good and loving care of my grandson.
    Love you
