39 weeks and waiting...

...waiting to pop!
I was hoping that this pregnancy would be shorter than the 41 weeks I had with Joseph. But I guess being Tans (meaning wait in hokkien), they find it very comfy in my womb and want to wait!
In the mean time...
I've been having to wake up 2-3 times a night to pee! This must be baby's way of training me for midnight feeds.
Joe has been extra manja and sticky. He probably senses that in the very near future, I will no longer be mama exclusively to him.
I feel a lot of pressure on my hip bones and it's getting pretty difficult to even walk. Makes me wonder how some people can live being obese. I find it uncomfortable to even sit. My breasts touch my tummy. My tummy touches my thighs. Gosh... I have problems even putting pants on.
Baby's birth will make it 4 generations born in January for my family. My dad's birthday is 1st January. My grandma's is on 21st and my own is on 30th. Yup, I'll turn 30 this 30th of January. Baby's safe and natural arrival will certainly be the best birthday present I could have.


  1. Actually this little "Tan" will definitely redefine some of the Tan family traits as this Tan family usually do things quite fast and no need to "tan" very long. Definitely emphatize with you and know how the waiting period can seem to be a long time. May it be Tan Noh-More for you this week...ha ha.

  2. Definitely will pray for a smooth delivery. I guess I can't say I understand this time of waiting, since my 2nd & 3rd were all scheduled c-sections; but I can definitely understand the part about how huge you feel, and the uncomfortableness, even painful hip bones, and pain with walking each step during the last week.
    Anyway, I can't wait to meet you all in person in Hawaii. :)

  3. Hey, Pris! I am excited for you and your newborn! Hehe.. Will remember both you and your family in prayers!

    Add oil, add oil!!

  5. Hang on in there! Baby will be out soon! Praying for a safe and smooth natural delivery and a smooth breastfeeding journey!
