A little one but exciting none the less. Max, You and I took a walk to the pharmacy today - by ourselves as Daddy had an appt. You seem to hate your stroller and I couldn't get you to lie in it without crying. After spending over an hour trying to get you settled and sleeping I took out the sling. At first you cried but in about 5 minutes you fell asleep. In fact, our trip was over an hour ago and you are still in the sling fast asleep. I am sitting here looking at your cute little face while typing.

Max arrived on 07.08.09 via a C Section. It was not what I had planned but my only concern was his well being.

to the due date! Soon I will be 39 weeks and in not too much time now we will have our LO! Wow - 10 more days. I can barely believe it. This birth is all I think about (and talk about!). All I do is sit and wait.....and wonder.....how/where/when it will happen. It's exciting to think that we will finally get to see what our LO looks like. I am excited, scared, anxious, nervous, etc, etc all at the same time.

until we meet our little one. 2 more months - that's approx 60 days. I still cannot believe it.
When I found out that I was pregnant, in the beginning the days, weeks, months seemed to strech out forever. Now that the day nears closer it seems as though the days are rushing by. We are pretty much prepared but there are still things to do. It's getting uncomfortable to move around and quite frankly I am tired of people telling me how big I am. Would they ever say such a thing if I wasn't pregnant?? And of course I am getting bigger. There is a BABY in my belly and he is growing so that he can come into this world healthy.
Wow - where did that come from???
Anyway - I am excited to meet the baby boy. There are so many things that I wonder about......what kind of personality will he have, what will he look like? Is he going to be an early riser since he seems to like to dance in my belly between 5-6am??? He always kicks when I am in the shower - will he be a water baby and love the ocean like me and his father??? I see bits and pieces of his personality now. The last time that the doctor did an ultrasound he was sucking his toes instead of his hands. Contorted into a position that only a baby could manage. The doctor actually laughed and it makes me wonder how flexible he will be when he grows up....
I used to feel kind of silly while talking to my belly but now I do it all of the time. The best is when the hubby talks to him, rubs him, and tells him how much he loves him. It brings tears to my eyes just writing about it now. It's the best thing in the world. I think that we are both in awe over this little human being in my belly. It's an amazing time for the both of us and I am so lucky to have both the baby and my hubby in my life. I don't know what I would do without them.

What a fantastic trip! I am so embarassed though that I did not take even ONE photo. Terrible, isn't it?? Oh well - next time, right? It was great to be in NY. There is always so much to see and do - and the noise! Wow, do I miss noise. The first day I though - oh my there is a lot of noise, by the second day I was in love all over again. The joy of any type of food you can imagine, ordering in breakfast on a Sunday morning when it is raining too hard to go out, $25 mani/pedis - and the shopping!
I stayed on the upper west side with a friend and we had a blast. I did a bit too much walking though and I was sooo tired. It took me awhile to recouperate after I got home.
Upon arriving back in Geneva I go 'pulled over' by customs. I told them that I didn't have anything to declare but they started going through my stuff anyway. I left a receipt for a pair of sunglasses in the box (so obviously they were new) and then the games began. The man started pulling everything out of my carry on shouting - this is new, this is new, this is new.....even though half of the things weren't new. I started yelling back at him that it wasn't new. We were arguing back and forth then he brough his supervisor out and I said to her - listen, these things aren't new - I am sorry that I have nice things and I am sorry that I take care of my things but you being a woman must understand this. Needless to say she helped me out a bit. She did say though that she wanted proof that my camera was more than 6 months old. I said - you're kidding right?? You want me to carry around receipts for items that I use and travel with just to appease you all??? I don't think so. So she took the serial number down of the camera. Whatever.
The man charged me a fine for not declaring the sunglasses and a pair of jeans. Total was 128 CHF. It could of been a lot more, and I must say that I got off lucky. The the man was like do you have any cigs or alcohol. I wanted to say - can't you see you f'ing idiot that I am pregnant???! For God's sake, I just got off of an 8 hour flight - I am tired and hungry and just want to go home. After being there for about 30 -40 minutes arguing, being fined, etc I was able to go on my merry way. Welcome back to Switzerland.

The Hubby and I went shopping for baby furniture and end up ordering a nursery set, a stroller, and a car seat. It's a bit early to be ordering things but the delivery time in Switzerland is 2 1/2 months. CAn you believe it??? I suppose that they just don't keep things in stock here and everything has to be ordered. We only have one free weekend from now until the end of April so it was a good time to get the big stuff out of the way.
For the stroller we ordered the bugaboo cameleon:
The car seat is the maxi cosi with the ISOFIX system:
Now, just awaiting my trip to the States so we can buy most of the little things at less than half of the price that they sell them here in Switzerland.

A few weeks ago I had blood work done for my 2nd trimester quad test. About a week later my doctor called me and suggested that I have an amnio test done because I showed an elevated risk for DS. I was surprised because I wasn't really expecting those types of results. I figured that my numbers would be fine. My figures were 1:280 and the doctor said that anything under 1:380 they suggested that I have the test done.

I was jealous that the hubby went to NYC for a week on business. Not only did he get to have a week in New York but he got to go out to dinner with my friends whom I miss dearly. I was so jealous that I went ahead and booked myself a little trip to NYC in March to visit my friends.

I must admit, I was a bit leery about the 9 15 start time for a prenatal class that I found in Gland. That means that I would have to leave around 8:30 or so to make it and not be rushed. Sad, isn't it when 9 15 seems early??! I am happy to announce that I did make it and I quite enjoyed it. There were two other girls taking the class due any day now - in fact one of them might have her baby - TODAY!! I find it fascinating that people do things up until their due date. I feel like I would hide in the house just waiting for "IT" to happen. I would be afraid to go outside for fear that I would have the baby. I guess by the time that your 9 month rolls around you really don't care much anyways - you just want it to happen and it doesn't matter where.
The class was good and it was in English. There was more talking than yoga and I felt like maybe I should be doing more but I actually felt a bit tired after the class. Interesting. It's funny b/c I am showing but not a lot (only in my 15th week (or is it the 16th week?? i can never keep track). Sometimes I feel like a fraud b/c I don't have this huge belly. I know it will come soon enough but I do want it now. I want to see that the baby is growing and feel it kick. Sometimes I get worried that nothing is happening...... I was never one to be patient.
Afterwards I met two friends for coffee. All in all it's been a pretty good day.

How can it be so difficult to post on a blog at least once a week?? Apparently very, very difficult because I cannot just bring myself to do it. BUT I do have some exciting news to share that might help me be more religous in posting on this blog. I am pregnant! I have passed my first trimester and have told most of my friends. In order to keep them updated on this event - I must post!
Here is a picture of the little one. At the next appt. we should be able to tell the sex of the child. I think that it is a boy....
