Off to Shanghai!

For real, I got back from Singapore on Wednesday afternoon, haven’t even had time to share pictures from that trip yet (or from our trip to the US, I’m super far behind), then tonight we fly out to Shanghai, for another 48-hour adventure in a foreign city.

The good news?  As of early this week, nausea seems to be gone – I even went to the gym yesterday, and though it wasn’t pretty, it was doable.  I didn’t want to push myself, so I just did one set of each exercise, instead of my usual 3 to 4 sets, but hopefully that means I’m not getting super sore.

I felt great afterwards, and if it wasn’t for the huge pinky toe blister I brought back as a souvenir from Singapore, I would have tackled the treadmill too, but I decided that I rather have functioning feet for sightseeing in Shanghai after all.

But then, an hour later I collapsed in bed and took a long nap because I was just so TIRED.  I’m officially in my second trimester now (yay!), and I heard the fatigue should start to improve.  Here’s waiting…  But yeah, I bet all the traveling is not helping.

After we get back from Shanghai, it’ll be another 20+ days until I go frolicking to another country, so I’ll have plenty of time to *finally* finish the update here on my trip to Chiang Mai (there are elephant pictures waiting to be shared!), post some pics from the US (though I didn’t take many, because I suck), and of course, a few shots from Singapore (which I loved loved loved more than last time, probably because it’s off season and not new year’s so it just wasn’t as crowded so I was super relaxed?  And the hotel’s breakfast included amazing cheese?).

But of course, I can’t leave you without a teaser, some iphone shots of me, Emi (my awesome travel mate!) and of course, baby Trunk.

    love the ultrasound pic! Enjoy Shanghai! It was probably my favorite Chinese city, all of the old buildings on the Bund and the food really made it for me (I also went preggo funny enough!) Thank goodness your nausea is subsiding…you’ll want to eat a lot! 🙂

    • It’ll be my first Chinese city (so far I’ve only been to the territories), so pretty excited, even though we have a short time there. Because of all the travel this week, I haven’t even done any research on what to do there, that it makes me a bit uneasy (I usually leave with a list of things to see!). Which reminds me, I should get that done now!
