Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!

Sunday, 3 May 2015
Hi everyone! So the whole reason why I'm writing this post is because Shane & I have something to announce. By now, most of our close friends and family would already know but we thought we'd make an "official announcement".

WE ARE...

EXPECTING!!! 

Yes, to all our very excited friends, the day you guys have been waiting for has finally arrived! hahaha! We're really thrilled to be sharing the news with everyone and even more thrilled to have an infinite flood of positive reactions this time round! It feels entirely different having people congratulate us and tell us that they're so happy for us instead of "OMG, then how?! What are you gonna do?! How are you gonna tell you parents???".

I'm about 12 weeks into my pregnancy right now and we're only announcing it now cause the Chinese have this superstition that you should only announce your pregnancy after the first 3 months to ensure nothing happens to the baby cause the first trimester's the most crucial. Although I don't exactly believe in superstitions but since I didn't know when was the "right time" to announce, I thought, no harm following the Chinese tradition right?
So yupp! I'm not really showing yet (this was taken this morning), mostly I just look bloated because I've since stopped my workout routine of planks and such. & judging from my previous pregnancy, although I'm showing slightly earlier than I did previously, I don't think I'll be offered a seat on public transport anytime soon (haha).

I'm sure most of you are also keen to know what Kylie's reaction to the new addition to the family is & well, me being me, I had her reaction recorded on video when I broke the news to her!

So yes, we're really excited to welcome our second child into the family and embark on our next phase in our marriage. We've also decided to postpone plans for our wedding to end next year instead of first quarter 2016. After all, the wedding's more of a customary tradition and a want rather than a need because we're already married. Right now, our little one comes first and we really couldn't be more overjoyed!
