Shana tova u metuka to all of you out there in the blogworld!

I don´t think anybody is still reading, since I never update, but maybe you have me on your RSS feed....

All is fine with us, we are caught up in preparations for the baby, only a few weeks to go. I am growing and growing and can´t believe that I will keep growing for another month or so :)

Wishing you all Shana tova, may it be a year filled with love, joy and happiness!

Back from NYC

So we are back home from our vacation in NYC and NJ. We had a fantastic time, walked a lot in Manhattan, met friends and stayed in suburbia NJ (would love to live there!) and shopped a lot. I went literally with an empty suitcase and came back with a full one, full with maternity clothes. The prices are almost half and the choices are about 25x as much! Time was flying far too fast and we could easily have stayed a week or two longer - unfortunately hotels in NY are pretty expensive and work wanted us back too.....

The ultrasound just before we left went fine. We could see all the organs and the baby kicked around and waved and everything else. We also found out the gender, so now I am at least knowing what name to look for! And we have a few in mind, but I am open for more suggestions! So if you have kids and you don´t mind revealing their names, please write them to me. We are looking for a traditional biblical Jewish name.

Now the heat has hit Sweden! It was never that hot here when I visited, we have over 30 celcius and no AC or fans! It´s crazy! Hope the temperature will drop soon. I was very happy to leave in a cooler country, especially now that I am pregnant. Since the flight back my feet are totally swollen and filled with water. I tried to sleep with my feet a bit higher and it helped a bit, but no clue what shoes I should wear to work on Monday!

My belly is growing and I start to feel kicks, our baby definitely loves food and as a Swiss baby, loves chocolate! I am still not showing really but I guess my belly will "explode" in the next 3-4 weeks!

Thats about it for now! Hope you are all enjoying summer (or Winter in AU).

Good news

I just found out today that there are two groups in the Jewish daycare. One where they speak the countries language and one where the teacher only speaks Hebrew. How fantastic is that? I was thinking a lot lately how I will teach my children hebrew. Our language at home is English; i will talk Swiss-German to the Baby and Mr. J.S. will speak his mothertongue, so how do we mix in Hebrew? Eventhough they learn it in the Jewish School for 9 years, almost none of the students actually speaks hebrew at the end......

Tomorrow we have our week 19 Ultrasound - how exiting! And soon half the pregnancy is over - how fast!

Have a nice week!

The long promised update

Its been a long time since my last blog entry and besides the obvious news, not much has happend.

The winter is finally over, spring is here with lots of sunshine, but not yet so warm temperatures.
My Swedish is getting better and better every day, I am still taking classes, although I think this will be the last one now. I am pretty fluent and am making less and less mistakes.
I started my new job almost 1.5 months ago and it has been very hectic since. I am trying to take it a bit easy and not stress too much, but it is hectic and actually I like it :)
I have been sick again, my imun-system is totally down and I am getting sick like every other month. This time I had Sinusitis and I had to take penicillin for 10 days. I finally met an Asthma specialist and she run some tests on me, my lung function is very good at the moment, which is great news! She gave me a new medication which should make me feel less dizzy.

The pregnancy goes great, the baby is due around my birthday, in October. I -luckily- did not experience any morning or afternoon sickness during the first 3 months (and also not later), besides being very tired and having more often headaches, I had/have no pregnancy-symptoms, which is nice.

The apartment renovations are finally finished, the only thing left to buy are balcony furnitures. And of course the baby-room but that will only be done after I gave birth.

I am slowly starting to look for names, so if you have any nice idea, please write it in the comment. We are looking for a Jewish or Israeli name, both girl and boy, since we don´t know if it will be a girl or a boy.

In less than 2 weeks we will finally fly to NYC, I can´t wait to be there, meet my friends and most of all shop pregnancy clothes :D

I hope to update this blog a bit more frequently, but honestly, not much is happening and I don´t want to bore you with my pregnancy topics. And right now I cannot think of much else then Babies and pregnancy :D

Time is flying....

.... and soon it is time to fly home again. The vacation in Switzerland past really fast and was as usual if I visit only once in six months pretty stressful. I spent most of my time with my family and some evenings with friends. It was great to catch up, but one week is just too short....

Now Mr. J.S. is freaking out on me about all the stuff that I bought here, things which in his eyes are totally unnecessary and which is probably true, but gives me a feeling of home when back in my new home. So here just a few of the things I bought:
- wet cleaning towels for kitchen and bathroom
- sugarfree cinnamon chewing gums
- cereal bars
- vitamin pills
- Parve chicken soup and soup mandels
- bags of tomato risotto
- tights and underwear
- crackers
and some more things.....

As usual we have much too much luggage and I do not know yet how we will manage without paying over-weight. We have two large suitcases, one cabin suitcase, one golfbag, one computer bag, 3 large paintings, a guitar, my hand bag and a small plastic bag with two crystal bowls. Oh and this time we are flying and not driving, so luggage is really limited - wish us luck :)
