Three More Months

PhotobucketPhotobucket

I have received several requests for pictures of the belly, so here goes. I’m not the best to pose for the standard pregnancy belly shots, but of course they are fun to have later on, and I’m sure more will be taken during the last trimester.

These pictures are from the other day, when I had exactly three months to go before expected due date. Actually I don’t feel the pictures do justice to how big the belly really is by now. Or maybe it’s just me feeling so different from my old regular self, where grapping things from the floor and walking up stairs was as easy as scratching my neck?!

A few more updates pregnancy-wise:

  • I have joined a prenatal yoga class and the very wonderful Vienna Babies Club, where I have been placed in a group with other expecting international mommies-to-be, who are all due in July, August and September. So far the group is made up of women from the US, Venezuela, Peru, Finland, Belarus and (surprise!) Denmark. We’ve only met a few times, but it seems like a great support network, where everything pregnancy related can be discussed. After delivery we will continue to meet with the little ones.
  • We continue to study births etc. in Deutsch and have now also registered for a Geburtsvorbereitungskurs (birthing class). Bjarni is working out long lists with relevant vocabulary, which, by the way is also full of, for him, new words in Danish. I’m so impressed by how he is taking on this whole task! Lucky lucky me, who feel I have the best support I could ever ask for in him.
  • And last but not least, my sister brought two bags of cracklings/flæskesvær (that strange pregnancy craving of mine), when she came for a visit. One bag is now left… :)

  1. Det er en FIN mave, Dorte!
    Og ja, jeg ved jo nøjagtig hvordan det er. Desværre kan jeg kun sige, at det bliver mere og mere besværligt netop at samle ting op fra gulvet eller at bestige trapper! Men altså, det er jo også vældig hyggeligt med alle de små spark og spøjse bevægelser under maveskindet.
    Tiden går jo også bare stærkt nu, synes du ikke?
    Vi har jo kun halvanden måned tilbage nu!! Scary og skønt på samme tid.
    Jeg glæder mig til fortsat at følge med hos jer. - Og sikke hyggeligt jeres hjem ser ud, iøvrigt!

  2. Hej Dorte

    Du ser fin ud! Det ser i det hele taget ud til, at I har det godt. Smukke billeder af Wien - jeg vidste slet ikke, at det var sådan en flot og hyggelig by.
