Even though her soulmate Ben Panangian remains in Bali, an Indonesian friend of Schapelle's has said the pair were actively trying to conceive a baby before she returned to Australia in May.
Days ago, Schapelle posted a photograph of herself sitting in a giant bird's nest - in the Bendugul region of Bali - alongside the simple, cryptic caption: 'Nesting.'
One commenter posted: 'Is this a hint you're pregnant Darl?'
While another asked: 'Bun in the oven?'
Another cheeky fan even speculated that Schapelle could be expecting twins, writing: 'Laying an egg? or 2.'
'It's clear the forced separation from her Balinese beau has been a huge cause of sadness for the convicted drug smuggler.
'Missing this man,' Schapelle wrong on a throwback photo of the loved-up pair together, posted to Instagram on October 10. In the snap, posted two month's after Schapelle's release from prison, a caring Ben appears to hold Schapelle steady as she stands on top of a tree stump in a traditional fishing village on a small island off Bali.
Adding more fuel to the baby rumours, on October 4 Schapelle posted a video to Instagram of her sisters visiting her in hospital, following her recent knee surgery. She used the hashtag #babytalk.
Schapelle's mother Rosleigh Rose previously told New Idea her daughter is certainly ready to be a mum.
'I would say she would love to settle down and start a family,' Rosleigh said.
Schapelle dotes on her niece and nephews and in the wake of her recent milestone birthday, she may be worrying that time is against her.
Schapelle and Ben fell in love in 2006, while they were both serving prison sentences for drug convictions in Bali's Kerobokan prison.
