Feelings of Soon to be Mom

I can't believe I am now 8 months pregnant. It's an overwhelming feeling, knowing that my baby is about to come out. A baby boy! Although 9 months is not true because it's actually 10 months in count, I'm still amazed how this baby inside me is being developed every week.  Everyday, I look in the mirror and say, "Wow, I am a real woman with a baby inside me!" LOL! :))

So how am I feeling now that I am 32 weeks pregnant? Excitement and a bit of fear! Excited because soon, I will see how my baby looks like. I've been thinking about this since I've known about his gender. Will he look mostly like his father or me? How active he will be and make our days more exciting? Will he be a good singer like his dad, a painter like my friends, or is he good in Math like his mom? I'm so curious! This baby has been kicking and punching, and seems to be dancing inside me, and I feel more excited. My husband talks to him and it seems that he responds in a form of a kick. I am truly thankful for this gift, not only for the gift of life but also for the bonding that me and my husband have now. Somehow, I have some fears sometimes, but I try to ignore and think positively. You know, I am not sure how good I can be being a mom. I've lived like a baby being taken care of a lot of people around me. And soon, I'll be taking care of a baby. How good can I be? What's the future for me and my husband?

Being positive at all times is what I try to maintain. Because it might affect my baby's emotions. It's good to set aside the stressful stuffs and be feeling good at all times. Thanks to the people who care, understand and adjust. Thumbs up to my team in the office, to my dad to be, to my housemates, to our parents and siblings, and even to the strange people who are also giving respect! I learned to give back my respect. 👍

32 weeks, and I'm getting rounder! I think I'm really huge, but I still hope that I can deliver a normal birth. I've been praying for it. :) Here's the latest snap that we got. :)
