A Gift and 39 Weeks

posted in: Second Pregnancy 139 comments

The past couple of weeks have been a gift to me.

My swoony post on Monday says it all, where I thank people and threaten to kiss them on the mouth.

Well, it feels like I’ve got a fairy godmother because it just gets better and better. And in a way, I do because I was visited by The Fairy Hobmother, who’s been flying around the blogosphere, bestowing lovely gifts on many. I was the very fortunate recipient of a generous RM300 (almost equivalent to US$100) to spend on goodies for the Scrumplet!

The Fairy HobmotherΒ loves spreading the joy, so if you want a visit and a possible generous gift of your own, all you have to do comment on this post! It’s not a competition, or a giveaway, it’s just sharing of some love and joy.

And speaking of love and joy…..

I’d love for this baby to come soon, to double our joy.

Or? I’d soon be toppling over from the weight.

39 weeks pregnant

Yes, still smiling. Kinda.

Tell me I won’t be taking a week 40 photo. Please.

Any guesses as to when this baby will come?

    OMG You’re pregnant? (this joke isn’t getting old, right?)

    I totally would have sex would you if it would help you out at all.

      The joke’s not old. Yet.

  • May 2, 2012 Emily

    You look amazing and definitely carry that belly well. Hoping for you you don’t have to take a week 40 picture although BOTH my girls came late, first at exactly 41 weeks and second at 40w6d. They inherited their “late gene” from their mother :/ That Fairy Hobmother, never ceases to amaze either!

    • May 2, 2012 Alison

      Thanks Emily! My first came 3 days before his due date, so I’m hoping his little brother follows suit! And OMG, 7 days and 6 days late?? I’m too impatient for that.

  • May 2, 2012 Jessica

    Did you hear about Jessica Simpson? She was 10 days overdue. Better hope ths baby doesn’t decide to bake that long.

  • May 2, 2012 Kristen

    I don’t know…Scrumplet knows he can share all of your yummy desserts while in womb. When he comes out…it will be pretty boring with just plain ol’ milk. πŸ™‚
    Have fun shopping!!!

      Aw, thanks Ashley!! I do hope it’s the last picture too. And so happy for your news (and hopefully belly pictures!).

  • May 2, 2012 Kristin

    Okay, I’m sorry, but that photo gets you NO sympathy! A second baby and you look like that? It’s gorgeous, perfectly perched, and you look fresh as a daisy after a spring drizzle.

    I say you should have to wait until 42 weeks – or maybe just 41 since that’s what I waited for with my second. Keep on cooking!
    Kristin recently wrote…Rage Against the iPadMy Profile

    • May 2, 2012 Alison

      Argh no, no 41 weeks, no!!! I’ve never been at 40 weeks – my first came 3 days early. I’m kinda hoping this one will too. Or earlier.

      “Fresh as a daisy after a spring drizzle” made me laugh.

  • May 2, 2012 Christine

    You are so super cute at 39 weeks! I looked miserable and like a hot mess. I hope that Scrumplet makes his appearance SOON! We all want to meet him!

    For your sake I hope you don’t have a 40 week picture, unless it’s of an adorable little newborn. (Is it even possible to have a forty week picture with a picture of a newborn? No? Not really? Okay, then.) Anyway, even though I know you probably don’t feel it, you look amazing. I promise I’m not just saying that. Your tummy? It’s yummy. (Okay, I have to stop before I embarrass myself even more.) Seriously though, you look great. And I hope to hear the news of Scrumplet’s welcome soon. πŸ™‚

    Patience. πŸ™‚ You do look great, though! Next time I’m pregnant, I want to take a photo every week… because I have hardly any pregnancy pics from my first two kids. (Except for one at my friend’s wedding.) Just enjoy every minute, because things will get both easier and harder when baby comes!
