I'm not pregnant anymore!
Nope I haven't forgotten about this blog but things have been haywire ever since our baby was born.
I'll write up my birth story once I actually get some sleep at night. Right now, our baby is a night owl. He's pretty calm and manageable during the day but at night, both his eyes are wide open and he's super awake! And yes, he can scream like a world champion when he's fussy.
We just got home from the hospital yesterday - which was a nightmarish experience (more about that later too) and my midwife came to visit for the first time today (another nightmarish experience).
I think having a baby in a foreign country throws one into the second phase of cultural shock. Its like everybody says something conflicting and thinks their opinion is the best, while the others' are invalid or just wrong!
I do wonder what its like to have a confinement nanny in Singapore. I do believe that you don't get scolded for everything you do wrong. I mean, its our first baby, so of course we make mistakes. But we really don't need to feel that we're on somekind of evaluation examination all the time!
I always thought that giving birth would be the hardest part of having a baby. But nope, apparently in Germany, the bureaucracy of nurses, midwives etc. is suffocating me!
I do apologize that I wouldn't be able to blog as much as I would want to in the next few days. Other than my rant, we are so in love with our little one. He's perfect to us. - Ok, he could sleep in the night, but we wouldn't exchange him for anything else in the world.
