1. Jellybean had the hiccups for the first time :) That's pretty funny :) and it happens about once a day now ;)
2. I started to get some Braxton Hicks contractions... I didn't know that's what they were at first - haha! I get them almost every day now :)
That's about it... I now go to the doctor twice a month, so that's pretty cool :)

On another note... we're going green..... and blue and yellow.... we thought it would be cool (and way cheaper) to use cloth diapers... they have cool cloth diapers on the market now, we just couldn't say no :) We ordered a few to get us started - you can see some of them below. They're cool because they have snaps and change sizes and you can use them the entire time your kid is in diapers :) - Besides, they are in super fun colors :)

OK, so it’s about time for another FAQ… After the Previous FAQ (click on this to see it)
I’ve had quite a few questions… so here they are:
1. Do they do epidurals in your country? Hope that's not too personal, but that would be one of my first questions... Inquiring minds want to know.
They do! Actually here they call epidurals: “Pain Free Delivery” – haha! But although they have epidurals, I’m planning on going Natural! Epidurals scare me :) haha! The actually scare me more than natural birth :) At my last ultrasound, I had a “low-lying placenta”… so if by 35 weeks, it’s still “low-lying” then I’ll have to have a C-Section… (and an epidural) so I’m “hoping” that it won’t be low-lying!!
2. Do you think it's a boy or girl? Sometimes the mom just knows.
I actually have no clue! Everyone keeps telling me that they think it’s a boy, so I guess maybe I’m leaning that way, but I really have no clue :)
3. How are you feeling? Do you have to walk a lot? How hard is your daily life, being pregnant where you are?
My daily life here definitely isn’t has hard as it could be :) Adam has been awesome and cooks almost every meal… I think since I’ve been pregnant I’ve only cooked 2 or 3 times… I’ve had a lot of problems with the heat… it’s REALLY hot here, and a couple of months ago we were having 125 degree days… and anytime I get hot, I get sick… I’ve been overheating easily… so I haven’t been able to do much… so that’s made it hard… It’s actually driving me crazy!!! The weather could change any day now and get cooler, so I’m definitely excitedly waiting for that!! Here's a pic below of one of the awesome meals that Adam made this week - Paneer Pitas - YUM!
The public transportation here is awesome! So I don't have to walk too much... I can catch a rickshaw anywhere... and taxis and the bus are easy... so I don't have to do too much walking (unless I want to) :)
4. What do the local ladies say to you - advice, etc. In my culture they are very direct and a little too blunt. How 'bout there?
I haven’t gotten tons of advice yet… the local ladies are very direct and blunt here, but they give more advice once the baby is out rather than while it’s in… Only people you are close to will talk about your pregnancy while you’re pregnant… (one of those evil-eye kind of things)… but they tell me to rest and eat fruits and veggies, don’t wear tight clothes, etc… But I’m definitely preparing myself for the advice I’ll get once the baby is born.
5. How quickly will you be able to put up a post with the news or send out an email in December to let us know of jellybean's big arrival?! Pics included of course!!
I’m working on trying to figure out how to get the news out fast… right now it looks like I’ll call someone who can post on my blog ASAP (that will have name/boy or girl/info)… but you’ll probably have to wait for pictures until we get home… 2 days in the hospital for normal delivery and 3 for a c-section… so the pics will have to wait a couple of days probably… but I’ll do it as soon as I can :)
Any other questions? Ask away! I’m so ready for Jellybean to come!!! We could have the baby in 10-12 weeks!! Crazy!!!

The funniest thing happened today on the SkyTrain. A little girl and her mom got on the train. So the lady in the yellow shirt next to me in the pic above, got up so the girl could sit down. The little girl was amazed at my stomach. Her mom was trying to explain to her that there was a baby in there... she kept touching my stomach and was VERY curious... Then, when I looked the other way, she tried to pull my shirt up so that she could look under! haha!! I don't know if she was looking for a baby, or she just wanted to check out that stomach for herself, but it was so funny! For the next 10 minutes, every time I looked the other way, she would try to pull up my shirt! haha! It was hilarious!
