Feb 4th 2009 5:46PM For the record, lots of people *do* change clothes in the Salvador airport. They just do it in the bathroom!
Mar 22nd 2008 7:01PM Oh, how I would kill for a smile right about now. My little guy will be five weeks tomorrow and I could use the encouragement. But hey--in the meantime, he's got a ton of gas these days so we're seeing the "fake" ones a lot!
Mar 4th 2008 3:02PM I use my peepee teepees faithfully. In fact, one saved me just a couple of hours ago! My little guy is still little and he doesn't squirm a lot at diaper time so they may not always work but for now, they're a life saver!
Feb 22nd 2008 3:29PM Ugh, right now, five days post-partum I have to say it's the bleeding. It's getting really old. I spent two months on bedrest during the pregnancy with heavy bleeding and it just brings me so many flashbacks.
And today I discovered I have no ab muscles (not that I was "cut" before!). I can't count on my abs to help me get up off the bed because they haven't been used in so long!
Feb 6th 2008 4:11PM I don't think it's a big surprise to anyone who lives in Brazil! We've learned that if we're going to pick anyone up from the airport, there's no point in showing up on time, not even if the latest flight information says the flight hasn't been delayed. If you plan on making a connection in Sao Paulo, you quickly learn that your itinerary needs to include a bigger cushion time because you're likely to be delayed. Once you're actually in the air, Brazilian airlines are great but getting off the ground can take a long time.
Jan 29th 2008 12:58PM I never thought I'd have help but I moved to Brazil where it's pretty inexpensive. Now I have someone who comes in three days a week and keeps everything tidy for me. It's been wonderful in these last couple months of my pregnancy and I know she'll make a huge difference once the baby's here.
I know having someone work that often is a super-luxury in the U.S. but I can imagine that even having someone come every couple of weeks would help.
Dec 12th 2007 4:22PM It's a great idea! I live a world away from my friends and family and recently had a cyber shower and I know others who have done the same. In our case, our mothers (or whoever) opened the presents for us in the U.S. and then brought them to us later. It's great to get to share that special time with people.
