Pregnancy Photo Shoot and San Churro

Posted February 8th, 2011 in Eat out in Perth, Perth WA 8 Comments »

Yey, week 35! ♪  It’s finally the last month of my pregnancy…

I’ve wanted to take some photos of myself with this biggest-ever belly.  At first I was thinking to take a pregnancy photo shoot at a studio, but I rather have it for my baby after he is born, so I asked D to take me to Kings Park and shoot some photos of me and belly.  Kings Park is the place where we had our wedding photo shoots too.

It was a shiny day with cool breeze – actually it was rather windy.  The sunshine was strong though – so we had to walk in the shade.  My pelvic bone hurts when I walk too much, so we sat down several times to rest during the 1 hour walk, and took around 50 photos.  I’m quite happy with the result. 🙂

We needed something cold to chill our body down afterwards. First I was thinking about Gloria Jeans, but we headed to San Churro in Subiaco instead.

We had an iced chocolate and a kid’s churros.  The smell from Jus Burger next door was really tempting, but we were after some sweets only – probably we eat burger then enjoy the sweet chocolate next time!

    You look beautiful! It does look big and you still have a month of growing! WOW!
    I hope you enjoy your time off work, while you get ready for your baby to arrive.

    Hi Megan,

    Thank you. It’s very hard to find clothes in my closet that fits…
    I’m sure this one month will pass quickly, so I’m doing what I can do at home while I still have my own time 😉

    Ume, I’ve just stumbled upon your blog – what a treasure! I love your writing style and your optimisim. Hubby and I are from Malaysia (but have settled in Perth for the last 5yrs) so lots of the ‘asian recipes’ you’ve posted are familiar. 🙂

    Anyway hope you enjoy the rest of your pregnancy! My little girl is nearly a year old now – I remember this time last year I was getting ready to pop too! Stay cheerful – a happy mummy results in a happy baby.

    Hi Anna,
    Thanks for reading…

    And yes, I will try to stay positive … although I think I may feel scared or worried as the day gets closer (like other first time mums-to-be), but giving birth is a natural thing and I know many many people have done it. All I try to think about is to give birth to a healthy boy 🙂

    Hi Ume

    My little girl arrived at 36weeks 3days – I was totally unprepared! But she was well and healthy – we had great support from the midwives (and my OB was really good) at the hospital.

    Don’t forget to get your hubby to be there with you – it’s an eye-opening experience (plus, it’s good to have someone’s hand to grip REALLY tightly during the labour process – my hubby said I nearly broke his fingers. haha)

    Your positive energy is the right way to go – keep it up! Feel free to drop me an email if you want to ‘chat’ or need any support.

    take good care. 🙂

    36weeks!! I would go panic if it happens to me too…! But at the end of 36 weeks the baby is considered full-term, so I guess it can happen.

    Actually, when I visited my OB few days ago, my baby’s head was not engaged anymore (it was engaged 2 weeks ago though). I was surprised to know that head could slip out from the pelvis!
    Anyway I hope the head will be engaged again sometime soon…

    Yap. My husband is willing to be there 🙂 I have no idea what the pain and all the experience are going to be, but what has to be done has to be done, so I’m pretty relaxed (at the moment)…

    Thanks for your advice 😉

    Hi hi… there’s always a ‘first time’ when it comes to experiences. 🙂

    My baby’s head was engaged a few weeks before she arrived, BUT she was in a breach position (her spine was against MY spine so that means it was difficult to push her out coz the biggest section/part of her head was ‘crowning’). My OB was really good – after pushing for 1.5hours the midwives rang him and he arrived within 15 minutes. I had an episiotomy and vacuum extraction. I was really scared abou that coz i’ve heard stories about baby’s head being cone-shaped after a vacuum extraction. Anyway all my girl had was a small bump on her head which levelled out within 2 days.

    Anyway my point of sharing this with you is : that goes to show that not all the horror stories we hear are true. 🙂

    Stay open minded and you’ll be fine!

    I hope you’ll have a safe delivery (oh, remember to pack your hospital bag and have it ready by now)… AND if possible we’d love to see photos of your little one on your blog. GAMBATE!

    Thanks:) Yap my hospital bag is ready, and I think I have everything for baby now (except for one… name ><).
    Haha, I will post the photo of my boy when he arrives. I still don't believe what is going to happen (I mean, me being a mum)!
