As you can see from the "creepy" (The Scientist's words-not mine) countdown on the right, I am currently 5 months pregnant. And yes, you read the title correctly....I will soon be outnumbered 3:1.
I am currently working part-time and even though I worked full time during my first pregnancy, I am, by far, more exhausted and sick than I ever was with Baby Bird. How in the world did I work full-time? (until I went into labor at work - more on that later) I will never remember! Hopefully this is not a sign of things to come after the birth.
One of the most frequent questions I have received lately is, "Are you flying back to the US to have your baby?" Really? People would actually fly back to the US to have their child? Besides all of the obvious concerns, how does one get insurance for multi-country pregnancy care?
Because I had a baby in the US and will have my 2nd in Germany, I feel I am in a unique position to talk about the pre-natal care differences between the US and Germany and hope to elaborate on the differences in the following weeks.
In the meantime, I will be eating Vanilla Roasted Pears (the smell alone is about to make me faint!) which the Scientist made me for Valentine's Day. Score major points for the hubby since I completely forgot about this holiday!
