Pregnancy, Uncategorized WHERE’S OUR BABY?? 19 January 2011

Hello world.

I AM STILL PREGNANT.

Today is the 19th of January and technically my “due date”. And whilst I know that 50% of women pop before and 50% after their due date, I was convinced I’d be in the former group…. so only God knows why I’m still preggers!

In an effort to send him an *ahem* eviction notice, I hit the gym 3x a week and do yoga 2x a day. In the past few days, I’ve stopped doing that since Mum and Dad are here, but instead replaced it with whole-day-long shopping sessions which involve walking a whole ton. But still no luck!!! He is snugly burrowed in me and loves to kick and move constantly, but not keen to move out. Gah.

So what do I look like at Due Date? Kinda freakish, that’s what 😛 Like I’m about to topple over at any moment. Enough to make people actually shriek (not exaggerating here!) when I turn around and they spot my belly! If you’re an attention seeker, I totally recommend wandering around town pregnant.. especially in China. People totally STARE in curiosity and amazement!

But anyway, here I am, sporting my jaw-dropping, unbelievable, 40″ waist circumference!:


At home, comparing bellies 😉

All rugged up

It’s cooooold in Shanghai, eek!

Shoplifting a watermelon

Lilypie Maternity tickers

OK come on out now ‘lil one. IT’S TIME!

Please send me all your happy-labour-dust thoughts 😛

    I’ve been thinking about you the last few days, wondering if the lack of updates meant you were possibly in labour right now! Sending you birthing vibes 🙂

    Haha..U reminded me when i was about to give birth to my elder son. I was scheduled for a csection at 5pm then, I was out @ Tangs Stila launch.. grabbed 2 ES from that collection & was entitled to a Free makeover.. when i told the SA, sorry, i can’t put on mu cos i’m having a C-Section later.. Her jaw literally dropped! lol

    Keep it going! It’s nice to see a healthy bubbly Preggie still full of energy! 😀

    Yes, shop and walk more! I popped the next day, after I went on a intensive shopping trip. But given that you exercised so much, you probably need more walking then me:P

    And yes, you look like you are carrying a watermelon under that sweater! Do have a smooth delivery. Baby, be nice to mummy and make your appearance soon=)

    Yes I thought the same thing – no posts for a while, obviously has more pressing matters to attend to. I have to admit I wasn’t paying attention so judging from your size, I assumed you were due weeks ago. If it’s only today then I guess it could still be a few more days. In this weather I would be reluctant to leave as well!

    Just enjoy the last few days of being a DINKY (dual income, no kids yet)!

    • beverly posted on January 19, 2011 at 1:52 pm

      Well I was full term 3 weeks ago but didn’t end up popping.. and today’s my due date but can go up to 2 weeks after this. It’s such a huuuuge margin to give birth in, d’oh!

      Now you know for when you have kids 😉

    You look awesome, Babe! So glowy! Love your pink ensemble in the last pic. Your baby is probably soooo comfy in there, seeing it’s soooo cold outside! Is it still snowing today?

    Super excited for the both of you!

    Looks to me like the baby has decided to be an Aquarius and not a Capricorn? Probably not a bad sun sign to have since you both relocate and travel so much. Having a child that copes well with that would suit you. I predict it won’t pop till the signs change but that’s soon so not to worry. I also imagine you will get even more attention with a newborn in tow than you did at 9 months pregnant. The difference is it will all be flattering attention and some of it will be on the baby. Best of luck! 🙂

    Awww thanks! I’ve stacked on *ahem* girth everywhere, but it’s not as easy to see with all my winter clothes on, thankfully 😛 Just hoping I lose it all afterwards!

    When I was looking at the first two pics I thought you didn’t look that big but when I scrolled down to the last pic…..it really shows how big your tum is! But you’re looking good! still very slim everywhere else. Wishing you a smooth labour!

      I think the last side-on pic is particularly scary/hilarious 😛 like I’m carrying twins! Hopefully he doesn’t get much bigger ‘cos I worry about being able to give birth to him easily… :X

    Woah big belly!!! I think for the first baby, it is very common to have the baby after the due date. Hang in there.

    Thanks a bunch for the b-day wishes and the virtual gift, so cute 😉

    My niece was due on June 30 of 2008 and she didn’t make her lazy appearance until July 6 (the day before a scheduled induction). So hang in there!

    Looks to me like the baby has decided to be an Aquarius and not a Capricorn? Probably not a bad sun sign to have since you both relocate and travel so much. Having a child that copes well with that would suit you. I predict it won’t pop till the signs change but that’s soon so not to worry. I also imagine you will get even more attention with a newborn in tow than you did at 9 months pregnant. The difference is it will all be flattering attention and some of it will be on the baby. Best of luck! 🙂

    You look so cute pregnant. 🙂

    I can understand that you’re sick of being huge (although you really aren’t) and desperately want to meet your son, but you really aren’t overdue until 2 weeks over your due date,and you don’t want to have to have unnecessary interventions (ouchy). Relax and enjoy not having to wake up every three hours. He will be here soon enough 🙂

    one of my friends, when she was overdue, was constantly eating curries and chillie-infused foods. that’s supposed to help the little one hurry up! (apparently).
