Hear ye, hear ye....

It's official, we are pregnant!  The Wee Westman has been confirmed and we are very excited to be able to share this experience with each other and the world.  As new parents we have a lot of questions and a bit of anxiety about the whole process but we have gotten a lot of books and are reading fast.

Living in England and expecting is going to be difficult because we are so far away from our family and friends.  Part of the reason for this blog is to keep everyone we hold dear updated on all of our progress.  So far, so good...

One of the big differences, we have discovered, about England's health care is their use of midwives for prenatal visits and baby deliveries. The whole process is very foreign to us, on several levels, so it seems we will be learning this whole process with a special international perspective. We are trying to keep an open mind about midwives, but, as with most new experiences, we think the "American way" is usually the best way. Hopefully, this is one of the many times we are proven wrong.

Many more updates will be coming along periodically (hopefully at least weekly) so keep checking in to read about our progress, ideas, experiences, and decisions.

There is a comment section available below so you can share your thoughts and ideas....

  1. “Wee Westman”

    My hands are slowly growing,
    One day they’ll hold a ball,
    Or should I be a “Princess,”
    They will cuddle with my dolls.

    My brain is just now forming,
    In a warm and cozy place,
    But by the end of Summer,
    You will see my lovely face.

    My mom and dad are lucky,
    To have a kid like me,
    Whilst there are many Westmans
    There’s only one called “Wee.”
