My Pregnancy Week 26
My pregnancy in week 26 included a lot of farewell aperos at school, a heat wave, a birthday party, and a head cold.
Swiss Heat Wave or Summer?
Is it just summer weather or is it a heat wave? I never think of Switzerland as being a hot place. But without a breeze or air conditioning, and the humidity, it’s actually quite hot. This week has been in the 90’s. Two weeks ago was also in the 90’s. And I feel like this happens every summer. So I’m calling it a regular Swiss summer and going online to look at tiny air conditioners for my bedroom. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
My daughter turns 8 this week on the last day of school. So we celebrated her birthday on Friday. We had 13 girls all together which was double the size of any of our other home birthday parties. I made sugar cookie shapes and cupcakes to decorate with frosting and sprinkles.
Oh, it was also 94 degrees. So we let the girls hose each other off on the balcony. The girls played pass the parcel and painted each others faces. My mother in law is visiting and made little felt purses for the girls to sew themselves which was so cute and sweet. Other than that, they just ate and chatted away.
Of course on Friday, right before the birthday party, I had a bad sore throat so I went to the doctor just in case. Don’t you always get sick on a Friday and wonder if you should go to the doctor or wait it out over the weekend? With my stomach bug last week I didn’t want to chance it. So she gave me some pregnancy safe throat lozenges and I’m making tea with ginger and lemon in it. The cold started in my throat and is now in my nose. So strange. I think it has something to do with the up and down weather.
Next week we finally have another check up on the baby. It seems like it’s been forever. We will also tour the hospital that my doctor delivers at. So we will see how that goes.
