"I think that I'm expecting a girl, although it's just a feeling," says Bounlid, who isn't sure exactly when her baby is due.

"I would prefer to have a boy, but after losing my last baby very soon after birth, all I hope for is that this little one is born healthy and remains healthy. I'm starting to feel really heavy and tired, and it's becoming much more difficult for me to move around and keep up with basket making. This is worrying me, as our income is starting to fall."
