Australia, Pregnancy

First Trimester in Australia

Here’s a tip. Don’t get pregnant in a hot country. Unless of course you’re from a hot country and then by all means go ahead. But I’m not. I’m used to a bit of wind, mostly cold weather and a heck of a lot of rain. Melbourne in December and January don’t exactly tick those… Continue reading First Trimester in Australia

Especially when you're moving to a country where the time-difference is 11hours from home and you can't call your mommy because she's asleep in bed and it's probably 4am.
