Hot and Humid Summer

Posted February 21st, 2011 in Ume's Pregnancy 5 Comments »

This summer has been quite humid in Perth, don’t you think? The summer in Perth should be dry and hot… I don’t like humidity. (>_<)

Today was my Week37’s OB appointment. On Week 34 my baby’s head was engaged, but on my last visit last week (Week36) OB told me that the head wasn’t in my pelvis anymore – lifted up again. So, today I was little bit nervous to know if the head was engaged again . …. It was!!! The head is now perfectly in my pelvis :). It’s a relief.

D and I attended a Parenting Class at the hospital on Saturday. It was a fast truck course and from 9am to 3:30pm. I was bit surprised to know that there’re quite a few number of pregnant women who’s due dates are close to mine at the same hospital and with the same OB! Everyone looked uncomfortable… but happy 🙂

When I watched the video of virginal/cesarean birth the first time, it was really scary…  but now I don’t feel scared anymore.  I’ve watched few child birth video and they are quite educational.   Yeah I still feel little anxious, but not much. I’m surprised with this feeling, actually. If I was younger I’d be freaked out.

Today I was practicing filling up the form for Japanese birth registry. I had to go to Jap embassy to obtain the form (they don’t allow people to download online, which is, to me, too troublesome). The form is very tricky and I even didn’t understand the description of “how to write” in Japanese. I had to phone the embassy to ask. After the bub is born I need to go there to submit the form, and then we can apply for his Japanese passport. Applying Australian passport seems to be much easier to me. You can download the form online, and can submit it throu post office.
He is going to have two nationalities (Japan and Australia) temporary and he will have to chose one before he turns 22years old.

Hey, by the way tomorrow is my birthday! Totally forgot about that… No plan so far, I guess I will just relax (which I have been doing since my last day at work) and watch DVD or go shopping 🙂

    Hi Ume!
    Happy Birthday for tomorrow! I hope you have a wonderful day!
    I agree. It is too humid these days. It would be nicer if we had some rain!

    Happy birthday for tomorrow Ume! That’s good news about your scan today. 🙂

    yup the humidity’s been very annoying this summer – it reminds me of the weather back in Malaysia except for the temperature which is not as high as Perth’s. I find myself wishing for the cooler Autumn weather already. Not much fun being pregnant during summer as well as what I’d experienced. Anyway, not too long now for you. 🙂

    Take care!

    Hi Angie,

    Thanks!! I still can’t believe (I should) that I’m going to be a mother…
    I loved your photo of unagi donburi the other day, by the way 😉
