Manual creation of polygon that crosses dateline

I am having issues manually creating a polygon that crosses the dateline (long=180).  My x coordinate goes from 178, 179, 180, -179, -178, etc.  Anyway, can anyone give me some guidance?

I am using ArcEngine 10.0 to do so.  I know how to create the polygon via code, but it is the dateline issue I am having problems with.  Once it crosses to -179, there is a straight line across the screen.  I am familiar with the geodesify option (for polylines) and I saw there is one for elipses, but the polygon I am creating is not an elipse.
