Baby got gas?

I have a new addiction and it’s sparkling water. I’m the worst when it comes to drinking water in general. I’m always dehydrated apparently, without knowing it. If I have a facial I get told “your skin is dehydrated”, if I go to the midwife she says “your body is dehydrated”, when I walk passed the water dispenser it says “you haven’t been here for a while”. But since I started choosing the bubbly version I consume more. I guess it’s my body missing sparkling wine or champagne. Oh wine… can’t wait to have a new born and fall asleep after a sip of wine at 734 pm.

One thing that crossed my mind though is my dear little baby in the belly. Can I drink too much sparkling water? At one point will he feel like he is in a constant jacuzzi? Is it a Spa kind of feeling or more like a washing machine?

Guess I’ll just have to ask him when he comes out.

Also I can only wear tops one day at the time as the belly is now big and catches everything I spill. Which I pretty much everything I eat.

2019 huh… it’s a new year people and what have you done with your lives so far?

Ah, don’t worry, as long as you had too much food and took some extra naps over Christmas, you are ok. If you didn’t celebrate Christmas, above goes for you anyway. Celebrating holidays are the best even If you are not really “celebrating” or belong to a specific belief. That’s what I love about Dubai. We just go all in for all religions.. we celebrate Eid, Diwali, Christmas, any excuse to have some extra food or a day of fun. 

I have had some days off to hang out with relatives and to eat. I look like a medicine ball now. The baby is really growing fast and I’m constantly bumping in to things as I’m underestimating my size.

Last ultra scan was fun. We have a doctor that does 4D so you get these freaky pictures of your child which is sometimes cute and sometimes .. rather interesting. Like last time. The little one refused to show his face. He put his hands up and turned around but what he did do though was spreading his legs and showing off that he really is a boy. Of course that made daddy proud and he yelled out THAT’S MY SON.

I had to apologize to the doctor, for finding my man in a cave and that I was hoping that he would grow up in a year or so.

Tell me how you all been doing and do you have any new years resolutions?

 

How I greet people nowadays.

Golfing elephant?

My colleague told me she was hanging out with her nephews six and eight years old, during Christmas and they had some good conversations. This one was my favorite

Six year old comes running.

Child: listen.. LISTEN .. I got a joke to tell you.

Adult: Cool, tell me.. TELL me.

Child: WHY does the elephant wear two pairs of pants?

Adult: Hmm.. can it be because he has four legs..?

Child: Noooooooo! Its because he has a hole-in-one!

Adult: Ok.. Did you mean to say why does the GOLFER wear two pairs of pants?

Child: Aaah yeah, damn it.

The picture is of someone (ok me..) that felt like an elephant playing golf. I was four months pregnant and felt h u g e. Funny to look back at it now and think that I had no clue how good I looked there and elephant size was about to come. This was more like chubby little dog compared to a few months later.
