Welcome to our life!

Hi, I'm Allison! I'm a thirtysomething, freshly baked, stay-at-home mom. I'm originally from Connecticut, now living in Germany, hence the name of the blog. I live in southern Germany with my German husband and our baby boy. Life has turned out to be nothing I ever expected, and am so incredibly happy with it! We certainly do have a lot of laughs! I hope you will enjoy following our new experiences raising a little half American/ half German in a little German town.

How far along?: 23 weeks

*Total weight gain: I will probably find out tomorrow
*How big is baby?: The baby is still the size of a papaya

Watch what you say -- baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.  from www.thebump.com

 *Maternity clothes?: All I can say is "yoga pants at work." 
*Sleep?:  Sleeping pretty well. 

*Best moment this week?:  Comparing my pictures from last week and this week.  The bump grew!

*Movement?: Erbse has been wiggling around at work and at home.  He's busiest in the morning, from about 8-12, and then again around 5:00.  I get a few kicks when I am getting ready to sleep too.
*Food cravings?: fruit, veggies

*Labor signs?: Too early!

*Belly button in or out?: Still an innie, and still rather painful!

*What I miss: sleeping on my right side

*What I'm looking forward to: more Erbse kicks!

*Milestone: Two weeks till 25!  17 more to go!

*Other Erbse related news:  Tomorrow is my glucose tolerance test.  I'm super nervous, but know that it is the right decision.  No name yet.  Oh, and my goal for this week is to order a mattress.
