9 Months

look, ma, two digits!

Oh boy! We're down to a two-digit countdown now. I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait!!!!!!!

9 months is a long time to wait.

According to, a 6-month (24-week) old fetus is able to live outside the womb. That means that if Baby is born now, he will be able to manage with a little help from the doctors. He'll be able to develop quite normally with the help of medication. So technically, 6 months is enough time for babies to stay in a womb.

Doesn't that make you wonder why babies are born only after 9 months? Why not 6?

I think that's just the way God planned it. For Mae and me, 9 months gives us some time to get our act together. 6 months ago, we would have made shitty parents. Now, we've gotten considerable less shitty. In another 3 months, we can almost be certain that in the future, Baby can grow into adulthood without ever needing therapy someday!

And having to go through an emotional rollercoaster for 9 months also helps us to appreciate Baby better. If babies can be made in a day or two, I don't think anyone will care too much for babies.

In fact, we might even eat our kids. Babies are cute and soft and they smell nice. "Yumm, that was good. Let's make another one for dinner next week!" We are Chinese, you know. And the Chinese will eat anything. Hahahhahha!!!

Thank God for 9 months.


  1. James: DO NOT let MEESH read this post. She eats babies. On that note, mind if i document the procedure?
    I can't tell you how happy I am for you guys. All the best, dude!

  2. Birth of Baby is gonna be the most anticipated event in the Malaysian blogiverse! Any plans for the big day? Ask Aiz for the kinds of cigars to give out! :)

  3. Thanks, Ash. SO, what is it you want to document? The eating of babies? :lol: Or did you intend to come into the delivery room with your camera?
    Hahhah, Sashi!!! Most anticipated eh? :) And yes, I shall give the cigars a serious consideration.

  4. OMG i can't wait either!!! can you get the baby blog now? :P

  5. eat babies?!?!?hahahha...wonder what else would you have in mind...hehehe...

  6. the baby's lungs are last to mature....and that only happens after 36-38 weeks... so no you would not want your baby out before then... even with modern medicine, it can be touch and go!...... you probably know it already anyway!!... yes it can be exciting for a doctor as well.... that is if everything goes according to plan... enjoy her pregnancy.... enjoy the intimacy and quiet time you can still share while the baby is still in there!!!!

  7. I get what you mean... babies are so cute with their chubby cheeks, pudgy digits and liquid eyes, it's hard to restrain myself from hugging them to death sometimes :lol:
    Will you be posting up pictures of Baby when he's born, james?

  8. Of courselar sara, no need to remind him :)
    it's the final countdown, so now must be taste testing all the baby food, stocking stockpiles of WMDs int the cabinets ;)

  9. congratulations james :) in a couple of months, you are gonna be holding this little human being in your arms and his small little hand is going to be wrapped around your little finger.
    at that point in time, you know why you waited for that 9 months !
    hehe. pictures when the baby is born. u hear me? :P

  10. Baby blog eh, kev? Hmm....
    Dee, you wouldn't want to know what goes on in my head. :lol:
    Say, Dr. Cheah, you ever delivered any babies?
    Pictures eh, Sara. Hmmm.....
    Hahahah, KA! I was at Tesco just a couple of days ago and I was looking at this baby food range and contemplating on whether I should check 'em out first before we let Baby eat it! :lol:
    Yes, boss. Pictures then, nat! :)

  11. What's a definition of a gynecologist?
    Gynecologist is a person who looks for problems in a place where most
    people find pleasure :lol:

    Fe Fi Fo Fum!
    I swear and I dont mean this any sort of offensive way (if thats even possible), but babies would taste so yummy.
    All soft, and cute and they smell nice! You are right! Muahahah ASH! I found out anyway!

  13. Babies born after six months are premature babies. They may be able to live, but they haven't yet had their internal organs (and the lungs if I'm not mistaken) fully grown. Besides, God has His plans. Nine months is probably the right time for parents-to-be to be fully ready for the baby. :D Yeayyy for James and Mae! The baby will be loved, by everyone of us. Baby will be Baby Of The Year... :D

  14. get the baby to blog! :) silly billy me.

  15. Hahhah, KA!!
    Ok everybody, keep your babies away from Meesh! :lol:
    Wow, Baby of the Year, eh Razz? :)
    Yes kev, I got ya! :)
