No no, Hubby will be there for the recovery if we stay here for the birth.

It will go like this:

-Hubby will go middle march / beginning april.

-He will be there from sunday night to thursday.

-He will be home from thursday night to sunday.

When the due date will arrive, he will be with us that week already. I'll give birth and he will be with us for 3 weeks after the birth. Which we will use to recover, organise papers, kids and home, get the movers and fly to the new place at the end of that 3 weeks.

If HR can get their fingers out of their nose....

If we leave before birth, we need to do it ASAFP. Swiss Airline allowed me to travel until 35 weeks of pregnancy without a doctor's paper.

I am in my 31st week...

4 weeks to go and if it is at the very 35th week, it gives us 3 weeks to find a doctor and hospital and someone to take care of mini-me.

.
Looks like you've got it all figured out !!
good for you, being well prepared will help a lot

Arrgghh - I wish I had help when my first was born by emergency C, away from my family and friends and with a OH working 130 hours! so lucky when no2 was born and my next door neighbour took me, well us, under her caring wing. it was great to 'pay' Betty back later on, when she developed Alzheimers and we were able to support her best we could, bless her.
Honest, if I can help I will- if you wish I'll pop over for a couple of days (just find me a cheap hotel or B&B nearby). xx Take care Nil.
Odile, if you do come over, I'll have you at home! I am a good cook! And I take great care of my guests! Especially the nice one like yourself!

Re: Moving away when heavily pregnant? (Last trimester)

The good news is that today I got in touch with someone who is from the place we are moving to. She can give me lots of informations about where to live, where to look and which hospital is good, doctors etc.

In the next couple of days, we should have a better idea of when we will move. Inshallah!

Re: Moving away when heavily pregnant? (Last trimester)

Nil, have you checked out how long it will take to organise a passport for the baby if s/he is born here?

Good point Lou, I completely over looked that thought too! N was born in November and we got his passport end of Jan! Although some of that time was due to delays from our side, but from sending the passport application off it took 2 weeks to come back but it took 6 weeks to get his birth certificate

With my daughter it took 2 weeks to get her German Passport. I believe we can ask the speedy process in this case.

But good to put on the list for sure, thanks!

Re: Moving away when heavily pregnant? (Last trimester)

You probably don't need any more opinions but I would choose option 1. I can't imagine anything more stressful than moving countries a few weeks after a c-section with a new baby and toddler in tow.

Now you have first hand info about where you ae going it should make life easier for you to sort things out there too.

I'm a bit far away but I'm happy to help if I can. If you were going to Brussels I could have given you lots of info and contacts.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

Re: Moving away when heavily pregnant? (Last trimester)

I'd like to share my experience of C section with you because in my case, it was not that bad. The first 48 hours in hospital, yes i suffered lot but still manage to breastfeed my baby. i left the hospital 4 days after delivery and I soon as went home I walked all the way to the school to pick up my other daughter. The only thing i had to do was move down from the 3rd floor to the 2nd one to have left stairs to climb and i had someone to do the housework. So you never know, you miht be able to make a speedy recovery than me. Actually , I recovered faster than after the stitches I had giving birth naturally.

If you want to fly after birth with your 1st and the baby, will it be alone or with your husband because I know some airlines don't allow one parent only with 2 kids when one is too young.

Thanks so much, it is nice to share good experience because I do stress over it. I had such a bad birth experience and I couldn't walk and sit for weeks with natural birth. They cut me bad with the episiotomy and the healing process was very difficult. An episiotomy is definitely not better or less important than a c-section. They cut nerves, muscles, everything. While the c-section, they pull the muscles away.

Anyway, I know it won't be an easy recovery, but it can't be as bad as my first experience. No way!

Hubby will travel with me, I won't do that alone....

What is trully pissing me off is the useless of HR to move their fingers out of their nose and actually do something... We are waiting after them and soon, the before birth option won't be an option anymore.

Did I mentioned that I hate HR?

Sorry completely off topic. Odile can you quote the posts that you are refering to because in isolation what you have written below does not make sense. Thanks.

Nil DID mention that she hates PR and the fact she hoped they would soon pull their fingers out of their nose and make a decision. Klar.

I think it is 1 parent per kid < 2 years old. My SIL had 4 under 2 She traveled with BOTH grandparents.

I can recommend the EPI-no. Google it When someone told me about this after having 3 kids (first emergency C then a VBAC, the 3rd came out like a rocket) I was really not up for trying it. After an episiotomy and a vacuum - I was willing to consider it for my second.

I already bought it. But I am not going to see the results of it. Just maybe the after birth muscles workout.

I just saw these on sale at coop apotheke in sihlcity today! Sounds a lot like doing your kegels religiously though and maybe some pilates too.
