It has become bitterly cold in New York City and I am glad that, most days, I can just stay at home. I really don’t envy Rich who has to go to work when it is -10°C out there. But I am a little jealous of all those other parts in the U.S. that seem to get plenty of snow, while we are not. I feel it is not utterly fair that the South has more snow than us. So I am still waiting for a winter more of my liking …
Else, we have completed 9 months of pregnancy this week. From now on I am going to have at least two different doctor’s appointments per week. The baby is moving around a lot, but she seems to like her breech position. Very contrary to me who has dreamed of a birth as natural as possible. Over the next few weeks we will see what we end up with. For now, Rich and I enjoy our last few days/weeks as just the two of us.
