First of all, yesterday I was sitting on the bed and typing on my laptop and Adam came and took a pic of me... my belly really looks funny! And yes, I'm wearing a lot of pink! Mona, my old landlord/friend in M-town gave me a bunch of her suits that were too big for her so that I would have something to wear.... so that's where it came from...
OK, so last night we had some people over for our weekly f'ship time... afterwards we broke out DDR (Dance Dance Revolution)... After everyone left, I decided I'd try to play (I haven't played since being pregnant...)... it was pretty funny... I kept having to hold up my pants (this belly, and drawstring pants make it kinda difficult to keep them up) :) and I couldn't really do the jumping thing... so it was funny... and of course, Adam videoed it... (I think I look like Humpty Dumpty in this video... man i can't believe I'm posting this.... so for your personal enjoyment....

So this past week, Emily and I decided we needed to get some of the baby things we needed before we got into our 3rd Trimester and go too tired... so we went shopping! The particular store we went to was called "Wieners" (pronounced - Weeners)... It really only had room to fit a couple of people. When we got there, there were some people in there, so we decided to wait outside until they were done... When we got inside, we started "shopping".... To shop here, you really have to know what you want... We came in with our lists and started asking questions... "Do you have....?" or "What is that? Can I see that?".... (you can see me demonstraing below). One guy (usually the older man that works there... a father or grandfather) sits at the register, while his son or his gopher gets all the things down and displays the items for you...We had been standing for a while and I started to get a little sicky feeling, so the son gave me his stool to sit on... it's pretty fun to sit and shop!
Emily and I bought a bunch of stuff :) (although Emily got about twice as much stuff as I did :))... just little things like socks, cloth diapers (which I may or may not use... but it's always nice to have a backup), a little hat, a changing mat... you know, little things you need - which I totally didn't realize all the little things you need!!!
(In the pic below you can see the man at the cash register) :)
OK, so in the pic below I'm holding both mine AND Emily's stuff... I thought I'd try to hide my shirt (the same one I end up wearing every time I have my pic made - haha!!)
Jellybean is coming!! Whoo hoo!! I've been getting kicked a lot lately - it's fun! :)

WHERE ARE YOU HAVING THE BABY?
We're having the baby right here in the city that we live in! We're lucky to live in a city that has good medical care, so we will be able to continue working up until the baby is born, and be able to work again soon after that (instead of having to travel far away and be out of station for 3+ months) :)
The hospital that we're having the baby at is great! It's only about a year and a half old, so everything is new! It is calld the "Max Super Speciality Hospital"... not specialty.... but Speciality (spe-she-al-la-tee).... so that's pretty fun :)
Here's a picture of the hospital:
WILL THE BABY BE A ROCKSTAR?
Yes, of course!
IS JELLYBEAN A BOY OR A GIRL????
Who knows? :) haha!! In our country, it is actually illegal to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl because of the high rate of female infanticide. The sign below is right outside of the ultrasound room where I have my ultrasounds:
We will be going back to Bangkok, Thailand in September, and we COULD find out there if Jellybean is a boy or a girl (if Jellybean was cooperative)... but we've decided to wait :) There are many reasons we decided to wait... but the main reason is... we just think it would be fun to wait :).... It will give me a little extra motivation during labor... and it would be fun to hear.... IT'S A.....
So.... it looks like we'll find out in December :)
WHEN ARE YOU DUE?
Sometime in mid-December... My due dates are either the 13th, 15th or 16th.... I'm hoping for around a week early :) haha!
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO NAME YOUR BABY? WILL IT BE AN ENGLISH NAME OR A HINDI NAME? WILL THE BABY GO BY JELLYBEAN FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE??
We have NO idea! haha! We've thrown around names... and we thought we had a boy name for a while... but now we're not sure.... We might use a Hindi name, and we might not... haha! We keep changing our minds :) So yeah, nothing definite on that... So, it looks like that's another of the mysteries that will be solved in December... :)
Here are some Hindi Girl names (and meanings) that I've seen lately:
Trilochana - Three Eyed
Yogita - One who can concentrate
Should we pick one of those?
Hahaha! OK... so if you have any other questions - just ask :) You guys ROCK!
