To cheer myself up, I decided to have my nail toe painted and add a little more $$ to have nail art done as well.. too bad I didn't have a picture of my leg before they swell up otherwise you can really see the before and after look..
A closer look at my nail art..
2 months ago when my tummy wasn't this big. I had an unpleasant encounter with a female colleague.
Tactless She (TS): So how many months are you?
Me: About 7 months.
TS: So small!
Me: Thanks lor! (in a sarcastic tone)
TS: So how many months is XXX? (another pregnant colleague)
Me: Im not sure. maybe one or two months earlier than me? You go and ask her lah
TS: Oh no lah. cos her's seem bigger than yours.
Simply can't believe for someone who has the brain to study in a medical school and a female herself can say such tactless thing to a pregnant lady. I bet she must had converted her EQ storage space for IQ during her course of study.
I was unfortunate enough to have to endure another episode of her tactless conversation last week when TS saw me.
TS: Aiyoh you still walking around ah?
Me: Of course lah, Im working leh, then what you expect me to do? sit on wheelchair?
TS: How many months are you now?
Me: Almost 9 months.
TS: Is this your 1st pregnancy?
Me: Yes (Dying to get away)
TS: (in a sing-song tone) Aiyoh, then you wait long long ah (I presume she's implying that I should expect a long labour process since its my 1st pregnancy)
Irritated with her. I walked away to another area and to realise TS had also walked and continued her "heart-warming conversation" with me.
TS: So when are you due?
Me: Does it matter, anyway you already ask me to wait long long! (and I walked away after saying that)
I think I deserve a round of applause for saying that back at her. I hope she realise that she was really tactless. Thank goodness, she is not my friend hence I can't be bother with her comments. I only pity the patients who had to suffer under her tactless tongue.. I guess throughout the journey of every pregnant lady, they are bound to encounter such unpleasant moments. I have learnt to take it like a pinch of salt and ignore them.
Today is the last day of my leave (3 days only). Had planned for this mini leave so I could rest. Sad to say, these 3 days of rest didn't do any improvement to my bloated and aching feet. In fact they seems worse despite elevating them. Been sitting around and sleeping these 3 days thanks to the ever helpful Mr Lim! I wonder how Im gonna survive through my work tomorrow. Just praying that my leave will be able to bring forward so I can rest more.
Of course, despite my whining about the down side of my pregnancy. I am very glad that BB is doing well and kicking actively. Should be expecting BB anytime soon as I have a feeling he will decide to come out earlier than expected..
