Please Say "YES"?

I can’t describe my happiness when one of my oldest friends asked me to be her bridesmaid for her upcoming wedding. I said, “You mean gumuk gedempol me??? OF COURSE!!!!” Haha. You see, I’ve never been a bridesmaid before. Maybe it’s because I got married before all my friends did and was busy being pregnant when they got married. So naturally, I jumped at the offer, this would probably be my last chance anyways!

I was already planning what I’d wear, how I’d put up my hair, my exercise regime so that I won’t be overly gemuk gedempol on her wedding day, etc..etc.. Mental note: Must gelek extra at belly dancing class! Yaay! Already daydreaming on the shopping trips, hen party etc, etc! What a ball we’d have, as though I’m the one getting married instead.

I can’t wait and I so want to do this - BUT as with everything else in life, there’s always the anti-climax.

I am planning to get pregnant soon.

And if I do get pregnant this month, I’d be in my late second trimester on the wedding day. I can’t delay the pregnancy – I’m already 4 years behind schedule (or so my husband says..)

How aahh? Would it be okay for me to do the job?

Has anyone seen a very pregnant-water retentioned-leaking bladdered pengapit on stage before?

But being pregnant, you'll probably be more radiant than pengantin - now that can be a problem. Never outshine the bride.

I have yet to see myself radiant during pregnancy. Imagine this - clumsy-bloated-mak gajah. How?

been pengapit twice, but would be hard for you since you have the honours to betulkan kain, amikkan brg jatuh, tunduk2 lap tgn seme...a lot of work u won't expect. but if u can manage, give it a go
