It’s been long since I did a tag. In fact only did one! Hehe Pregnancy tags are always fun to read and well here I answer questions from my first ever pregnancy tag:
1. How many months are you?
2. Family’s Reaction?
3. Do you know the sex?
In India no options there….I wish I could know, I think it helps with mental prep, not to mention shopping. I had a strong gut feeling with Batool that it was a girl but this time that’s missing. Praying for a healthy baby regardless of gender.
4. What did you want?
I secretly want a girl, but having a boy would be good exposure to variety 😉
5. Do you want more?
Considering that pregnancies take a toll on my body I do not wish to. However, not going to get any procedures done for steralisation.
6. Biggest craving?
7. Best part of being pregnant?
The ever growing pampering from the hubby…..baby movements….the growing belly….
8. Worst part of being pregnant?
Restricted movement….and Hormones injections….
9. Names picked out?
Yes! For both genders, the husband and I are super prepared!
10. Who will be with you during labor?
Probably my mother or husband, don’t know what the hospital policy on that is as yet. I don’t mind the idea of just doing it solo.
11. Birth plan?
Trusting my doctor since this is a high risk pregnancy and a birth plan would most probably be useless!
12. Will you film it?
13. Natural or Medicated?
Natural…all the way….fingers crossed….I didn’t take an epidural last time and don’t want to as well.
14. Scared about labor?
Not scared, as I have been through it twice…but I guess with deliveries each is different…Anxiety is natural isn’t it!
15. What do you look forward to after pregnancy? Being able to go out and meet people and walk, and lie on my tummy and jump…..movement basically….
100% I wasn’t able to feed Batool as long as I wanted to, always had to express and feed her. I am hoping I would be able to experience breast feeding in all its glory…and for two years….
17. Plan to work or be a stay at home mom?
I have already put outside work on hold. I am a freelancer and a student. I am looking at not joining any committed work schedule for min 2 years for the baby…That may just increase to 4 who knows?! But I don’t consider work or anything along those lines priority when there’s a gift of a child in your life. I may mostly put my education on hold even though I am studying through distance mode. However I don’t wish to have any added stress/responsibilities, the baby deserves my 100%.
18. Will you make your own baby food?
Yes most definitely. I have already been getting excited about various ideas and pinteresting away…
19. Do you have nursery ideas/themes?
I am freaked out about SIDS. And research shows that the first year is crucial and co-sleeping is the best, apart from being practical as a breastfeeding mother. I plan to keep the baby in the same room and co-sleep for the first year for sure.
