Week in review: 3 – 9 January 2022

This week it finally snowed properly in New York City for the first time this season. We got a bit more than 10 cm of snow on Friday and I was super excited. So far it has predictably snowed every winter in the City since I have been here. As this was only a bit of snow, my theory is that much more will come just when we are ready to give birth.

Although I myself feel ready now. Now at 35.5 weeks of pregnancy, my body is mostly uncomfortable and in pain. There are days when moving is super hard and I can’t do simple things easily like getting down on the floor to pick something up. Even putting on socks becomes more and more difficult.

On the positive side, I believe we are done setting everything up for the baby. The crib is in our bedroom, we have washed all her clothes and sorted them, we assembled the pram, … I also think we have all the important pieces we need in the beginning. All that is left now is to pack the hospital bag and to wait. Yeah, have I ever mentioned how much I hate waiting? Or being uncomfortable or in pain?! This is going to be an extremely long January …
