Week 30 – Day 6

Lots of posting this week, cause of lots of thoughts! We started the pre-natal course on Tuesday, and it really hit home that we’re going to have a baby soon. Like a real person. There was a lot of information and it was a tad overwhelming, but also very enlightening, as she covered things about the Dutch healthcare system that I had no clue on.

In terms of people the crowd seems nice, probably some couple in there that I would get along with on a personal level. Need to feel them out a bit more.

I’m also noticing how now when there’s only 2 months left, I’m mentally starting to really get fed up with this. I want it to be over and done with soon. I want my old body back, and my old clothes, and the freedom of movement. So very surely counting down now. 63 days to go before due date.


Week 4 – Day 2



Pre doc thoughts:

Sitting in the waiting room at the doctor’s. Not sure how this will go down, don’t know anything about what this feels like, or how it’s done in the Netherlands.

Post doc update:

Based on the first day of my last period “Justin” is due 19th November, and the doctor is hardly involved at all. It’s still super early days, and I was told to make an appointment with the midwife for around week 8. I guess until then I just wait.

He read through a whole list of things that I’m not allowed to do or eat. Alcohol and drugs (yeah, obvs…), don’t smoke (I don’t anyway)… Cheese, raw/uncooked meat/fish/eggs (I think I can handle that). I think those are the main ones. Take folic acid, be a healthy person, keep exercising – fine.
