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
OK come on out now ‘lil one. IT’S TIME!
Please send me all your happy-labour-dust thoughts 😛
