the bump

When do you think we might start to see her little baby bump? Is she four months yet? She's so beautiful and exquisite!

1st egg production by storks released into wild in 2005 confirmed
................In September last year, two male and three female storks aged between 2 and 7 were released from the breeding farm in a ceremony attended by Prince Akishino and his wife Princess Kiko. The release came more than three decades after the species became extinct in the wild in Japan. The egg was produced by a pair consisting of a 5-year-old male stork and 7-year-old female stork. The male stork was released by Prince Akishino...............

Article from HELLO
Japan's expectant Princess Kiko may be under intense scrutiny in the run-up to the birth of her third child, but on a recent engagement in Tokyo she gave no hint of being under pressure.
Impeccably turned out in a pale green shot silk suit and bowler-style hat, the 39-year-old royal smiled discreetly as she attended an environmental conference with her husband Prince Akishino...................

Safe-birth ritual held for Japanese princess
The wife of Japanese emperor Akihito's second son, pregnant with a possible heir to the Chrysanthemum throne, on Thursday underwent an ancient ritual to pray for a safe birth.................Attended by court ladies and her husband, Kiko was wrapped in a long white sash provided by Empress Michiko in a symbolic gesture to protect her unborn child, an Imperial Household Agency spokesman said.
"From what I hear, all is well with the pregnancy," he added.
Japanese women who have entered their fifth month of pregnancy customarily wrap a white sash around themselves on the "Day of the Dog" -- an auspicious day for birth according to the traditional zodiac. Dogs are believed to be good luck for birth as folklore says they give birth easily and safely...................

Ceremony held for safe delivery of Princess Kiko's baby

The ceremony, held at the prince's residence in Tokyo's Minato Ward, involved wrapping a sash called around her abdomen as a temporary maternity belt to protect the fetus. The prince and the princess later visited the Imperial Palace near their residence to report to Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko that the ceremony had gone smoothly and thank the empress for sending the sash as a gift.......................During Thursday's ritual, Prince Akishino handed the white sash to the 39-year-old princess and she wrapped the sash around herself in a different room with the help of an attending staff...................
