They say second trimester is the best. This is true. The stench of everything subsided, I was able to eat meat again, still wanted to eat more veggies and salads. My aversions to broccoli and asparagus still hung around.
September was an interesting month. Lots of travel!
First off, I went to Sydney with the family. When I mean family, I mean my brother, sister, their significant others and our cousins and their partners. My husband didn’t go as he went to Bali for the Ultra Music Festival with his friends.
Whole purpose of the Sydney trip was to see Above & Beyond, a trio trance DJs. This night was a lot of fun 🙂
The rest of the days were spent walking around Sydney, eating and just hanging out.
Hanging at Sydney Opera House
Now, my hubby is a footy fanatic. West Coast Eagles made it to the grand final, and while we both on our holidays, we were waiting to find out if we got tickets to the Grand Final in Melbourne. It would make sense for me to fly from Sydney to Melbourne, instead of going back to Perth and then flying to Melbourne. Well, I ended up having to go back to Perth. As soon as I got off the plane and turned my phone on, there was a message from the hubby saying that we had tickets!!!
Flights to Melbourne was costly, but it’s okay. How often do you get a chance to go to an AFL Grand Final?
The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is an amazing venue. I had never been before. The seats we had were pretty good too. Too bad the Eagles lost… we still had a great experience.
I have to say though, all that flying… Perth to Sydney, Sydney to Perth. Two days later, Perth to Melbourne and then back. I swear the flight Perth to Sydney and the Melbourne to Perth flights were terrible. I’m pretty sure the pilots were on something, they kept bouncing around in the air. I wanted to hurl, but I didn’t.
In October, the hubby and I went to have our second ultrasound which told us the sex of the baby. We are having a BOY! How exciting…!
After this ultrasound, my GP called to tell me my placenta was lying low. I was very upset. I didn’t know anything and started Googling. I came across this video by Vicki Hobbs (who ended up being my doula!).
Most medical professionals are very risk-adverse. I guess they just want us to be ready for the worst. Why can’t they be more positive? It’s stupid. Most of the time, things will go right for many. It’s not even 50% of pregnancies/births that go wrong. So much scare mongering. Pregnancy and Birth is natural and the body (most of the time) knows what it is meant to do.
Anyhoo, rant over 😛
What did I eat?
Ummm… everything. I must admit though, I wasn’t very hungry and got full very quickly.

Out and over for now!
