THE 10th MONTH… Here I am, thinking I have seen it all and heard it all… But in the 11th hour of my pregnancy, there's yet another myth that I need to address! The 10th month. Yes, there is a 10th month in pregnancy, and I'm currently living it. So many people tried to correct me in one of my recent posts, thinking I may have accidentally written 10th instead of 9th. No it was no accident. The 10th month, as logic suggests, starts after the 9th month ends. After 36 weeks of pregnancy, the baby is officially ready to come into this world. 40 weeks is considered a full term, and that's when the doctor gives you your EDD (estimated due date). The due date is always ESTIMATED because nobody can predict when the baby arrives. It is extremely common and absolutely normal for women to reach 42 weeks before natural labour begins.. especially if it's the second pregnancy… and once you cross 38/39 weeks, your 10th month begins. So, while my clock ticks, I could go into labour right this minute, or another week later… I'm not worried. On the contrary, I'm rather relaxed. Because I know, once the baby comes, I'll have my hands full! And I think now is the perfect time to also say that it's always the baby who decides when labour will begin. So you can try all you want, get restless, get scans done, pray that the baby comes out fast (I know it's uncomfortable)… But trust me, the baby is the most comfortable inside you! So don't hold your breath… But remember, good things come to those who wait…. #pregnancy PC: @sachin113photographer Location:@1bhkmumbai ________________________________ #pregnant #pregnantbelly #chhavimittal #readytopop #pregnantmom #pregnantmother #happilypregnant #40weeks #40weekspregnant
Her family hosted a surprise baby shower for her in her 10th month and the lady is no less than excited. She says, “One can never be too prepared. No two pregnancies and babies are the same. During my first pregnancy, I had the liberty to quit my show and rest it out. However, this time around, I already have too much on my plate — my elder daughter and business. So, I haven’t got the time to sit back and enjoy this phase.”
On 4th May, Chhavi shared her second baby shower pics with her Insta family. Here she was seen wearing a blush pink off shoulder dress. The dress was accentuated with a pearl necklace and her cute smile and that radiating glow was enough for the evening.

This whole pregnancy has been so damn hectic for me that I have literally had no time to even think of feeling special. But there's one thing I did miss this time. And that is a BABY SHOWER. Normally it's either a sister or a best friend who throws you a baby shower, but I don't have a sister, and my best friend tried to get together with my darling husband @mohithussein to plan one for me, but unfortunately I couldn't take out a day since I had deadlines to achieve before going into labour. But you know how Sharukh Khan said that "poori kaynaat" dialogue? 😋😋 So I think the forces of nature got together and sent an angel from above to throw me a baby shower literally days before my labour would begin! Day before yesterday I got a call from my 6 year old daughter telling me that tomorrow's my baby shower, and that I'm to leave the house at 4 and then come back at 6! My Little fairy had called 2-3 of her other 6 year old friends, who came and helped her decorate the whole house with coloured tapes, balloons, messages on post-its, flowers and sea shells. I was made to wait outside the door for a few minutes because they were not ready… Then I told them that I need to sit, so a cute blindfold (the eye patch I wear to sleep) was put around my eyes & my cutie held my hand and made me sit while they did the last minute finishing touches.. then 5 minutes later they all came and Areeza removed my blindfold while they shouted "surprise" and filled up my lap with little cards full of love and spelling mistakes! It was the biggest awww moment of my life ever!! And I couldn't have wished for a better baby shower! The people who matter to me the most, and to whom I matter the most were present, and the little human that I made 6 years ago created this special, unforgettable moment for me 🙂 And later she told me, "mama I'll always do this for you, on every special occasion". Was this the best day in my pregnancy… Strike that… best day in my whole life or what! The fact that I spent the next 2 hours after that cleaning the house and doing pocha is a completely different story though 🙄😉 #babyshower ____________________________ P.S. She asked everyone to wear pink.
