about zwieback and Cassiopeia

It doesn’t always need to be a laceration. Sometimes, a stomach bug is just what it takes to arrange a visit to the emergency unit again. Or, in this case, the birth section of the hospital. Because that’s where you are sent to with unspecific symptoms such as nausea, stomach pain and hurting legs and arms in your 35th pregnancy week.

On the bright side: my mother-in-law happened to be with us so we had a perfect babysitter. And we were finally able to check out the hospital where baby number two (which so far is lovingly called “Hoppadaia” by the little one) is supposed to be born. Maybe we will even meet one or two of the midwives again in five weeks.

And while the midwives checked whether I can keep some water and some zwieback inside, Karsten discovered that his moles on his legs do not only form the Little Dipper, but also Cassiopeia. Who would have thought that there can be even more exciting discoveries than little babies in a birth section?

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
