This week was special. It was Mama Mary’s birthday. I guess you know by that I am a Catholic and I have a special devotion to our lady. She may be human just like us but a very special one. I hope I can emulate her virtues and be a strong, kind, and good woman like her. Happy Birthday, Mama Mary!
This week also marks my saying goodbye to my first trimester symptoms. I have entered my second trimester already last Thursday. It was tough but manageable first trimester. There were different symptoms I have noted compared to my first trimester. With Naj, I was so lethargic. This pregnancy, I was more sleepy than lethargic. I also don’t pee as much as my previous pregnancy. With Naj, I hardly have any appetite. But now I have a bad taste in my mouth that urge me to eat something to get rid of it. There were a bit of nausea and the vomiting was once at night which never happened when I was pregnant with Naj. I have survived drinking melon juice. I love it! It was so cooling and refreshing.
Though I have to say the food aversion is not totally out of the picture but I am definitely feeling much better now. I am happy to announce also that I was energetic enough to do a morning yoga today.
I had a lovely chat with two ladies this week. We talked about life circumstances and things that allow us no choices. We realised that we just have to accept things that comes our way and who knows, it might be the right path after all. I am a believer that we can make our plans but there is higher power that knows what is better for us. We can sulk and cry or we can make things work out for us.
Today, hubby, Naj and I walked to the nearby restaurant, The Bark Cafe, for an al-fresco dinner. We had some calamari, fajita and pizza. The hubs got a big glass of German beer while I got a red plum soda.
Here are a round-up of links I found online that inspired me this week:

I hope you all had a great Sunday! Happy Grandparents to all grandparents and to my mama, papa and father-in- law & mother-in law!
