Taiwanese comedienne Xiao Tian Tian surprised everyone in January when she announced that she is married and has a baby on the way. Since then, the 36-year-old has been sharing more about her pregnancy journey through interviews and social media.
Xiao Tian Tian, who is now six months along, admitted that she couldn't quite believe that she was expecting when she first found out that she's pregnant.
“I never expected that I would get pregnant so I went on with my daily life," she said. "There were times when I saw that I was bleeding when I went to the toilet, but I didn’t think too much of it either.”
Eventually, she took a pregnancy test, which came up positive. She would go on to take five more tests before she believed that she really has a bun in the oven.
One of the first things she thought of was how her boyfriend and his parents would react to the news.
“I was certain that I would keep the baby regardless of what they had to say,” Xiao Tian Tian said. “When I told my boyfriend about it, he immediately said that it was an amazing piece of news, and that he couldn’t wait to start a family with me.”
They later registered their marriage, but the couple will only be holding a wedding banquet after Xiao Tian Tian gives birth.
She confessed that being pregnant for the first time at her age comes with its own set of problems, and that she is going for check ups “very often” just in case.
“It feels like I’m back in school waiting for my exam results after every test I take at the doctor’s. Even after the results come back, there’s a next test waiting for me. It makes me very anxious," she said.
What makes it worse is that her morning sickness hasn’t gone away even though she’s almost in her third trimester.
“I used to love eating deep fried meat, but now I feel like throwing up whenever I eat anything greasy,” Xiao Tian Tian bemoaned. “The same goes for junk food, and the only kind of food I don’t have a problem with is vegetables.”
