From today on, officially, I am allowed to give birth at home. For my foreign friends this might seem strange, but in the Netherlands it's quite common to stay at home during delivery. And I really hope and wish I can stay at home, because I don't like hospitals much and I prefer to be in a place I feel relaxed. Of course, when things are difficult or whenever there are complications, I'll be going straight to the hospital - but I hope we don't need to do that.
I really love this maternity leave, giving me the opportunity to do whatever I want to do, without stress and hurry. Everything is ready for the baby, and with my many hobbies I don't feel bored at all. I feel good and rested, although my belly is getting bigger and it makes sleeping a little more uncomfortable lately.
We have bought another car last week! After years of driving several red Daihatsu Cuores (since 2004), we are now going to drive a grey Volkswagen Golf! Big change! During our test drive we tested if our stroller fits in the trunk. It does! :D
