Soon on my way again ...

It just became clear that M and I are leaving for a very romantic place with a nice micro climate on Thursday. Palm trees, strotting in a bikini and sunny heat seems like pure and lovely music to my ears when Stockholm has jumped straight to autumn again.

  1. It's nice to see that you travel a lot....so do I (with a baby in my tummy :)), mostly due to my husbands work schedule. However, when I was leaving LA the other day to fly back home a security worker, who also were pregnant, said to me "are you aware of the extremely high levels of radiation your body is put through during a flight"....and to be honest I didn't know and was a little struck by that comment! I asked a friend who is a pilot, and he said yes there's a lot more radiation higher up in the atmosphere, but he didn't think it was a that big of a risk, if you don't as pregnant fly frequently !! But I did consult my doctor (didn't ask about radiation) before i flew and he said it was ok, just drink plenty of water and move a lot!! So I was wondering if you ever came across people or doctors telling you not to fly due to radiation?? ahhhh...there is so many "not to do's" that you don't know what to do anymore :)....Btw I can warn pregnant women in Sweden to not to eat papaya (not sure if they warn you about it over there)...but here in Hong Kong where papaya is pretty common, it's a big no no!!

  2. Anonymous: Hi! Nice to see that there is one more of us flying mothers out there. I don't think I it good to travel to often when carying a baby, mostly because you need more rest and calmness and the small risk of it. I always tro to move my feet a lot and drink plenty of water. Luckily, most of the times it is short trips in Europe I do so maybe that is better.
    But this is the last, last time I fly before giving birt. My dactor also said it was ok, but I think the most important thing is to be aware of your body and make sure you feel alright from the beginning. There has been a couple of month before that I just wouldn't coping flying because of a lot of stuff, and then I didn't.

    Papaya is not very common to eat here in Scandinavia I would say, Mango is more usual, but what is it with the Papaya?

    Take care!

  4. Hej! Får man fråga vart det bär hän? Jag är i vecka 21 nu, och såhär halvvägs börjar jag känna att jag vill iväg "en sista sväng". Vart åker man? Vill inte flyga långt, det tror jag inte att jag orkar med, men vill ha lite sol! Tips skulle vara trevligt...

  5. Hej!

    Tänk på att inga försäkringar gäller vid för tidig födsel om du befinner dig utomlands from v 28 och fram. Varför flyga runt så nära inpå, låter lite risky business...

  6. Helena: Lugano Italien/Schweiz. Ett mikroklimatområde med underbar natur, restauranger, badmöjligheter och palmer.

    Anonym: Vad menar du med det? För barnet eller för mig? Jag har ju en olyccsfallsförsäkring och de försäkringar man täcknar för bebisen i magen täcker ju mer sjukdomar än för tidig födsel i kombination med resa eller? Ge mig gärna mer information om du har.

  7. anonym: Nu har jag tagit reda på allt. fÖrsäkringen gäller inte i luften ef. v28 men gäller återigen genom min olycksfallsförsäkring när jag landat. Så om planet behöver gå ner för att jag ska föda så får jag bekosta det själv. Men om något händer mig efter jag landat gäller försäkringen jag redan har. Det är samma upplysningar som du har? Är det korrekt? Vänligen stina

    Hej Stina, var inte alls meningen att skrämma upp eller komma med förmaningar. Vet bara att min vännina talade om det då hon var gravid och planerade sina resor. Skickade en länk, vänligen se ovan, som tar upp just detta.

    Lycka till och ha en underbar resa,

    Kram Kram

  11. anonym: I can see that on the latest forecast, grrr ... Last week it was like 30 degrees and very sunny. We can only hope for the best!

    Anonym: Jo jag blev lite orolig fast samtidigt vet jag att det inte är någon fara. Tack!

    Helena: Migränanfallen har jag bara haft två stycken av men huvudvärk har jag då coh då - men inget att jämföra med hur jag brukar ha det så jag är mycket glad och tacksam för detta!

  12. Hej Stina!

    Tack för en bra blogg, en av mina favoriter!

    Jobbar du 80% med tanke på dina resor och dina lediga onsdagar eller har du väldigt flexibla arbetstider? Har du jobbat på sjukhus som sjuksköterska innan du började jobba på klinik?

  13. According to my doctor papaya contains a latex substance (specially unripe papaya) that triggers uterine contractions and may cause a miscarriage. However they say it's ok to eat ripe papaya....but why risk it?!! I just wanted to inform you guys about papaya, because I came across a Swedish pregnancy site where one of the "home" remedies for heartburn during pregnancy was to eat papaya!! I couldn't unfortunately comment on that site, so I decided to write it here since it's not a common fruit to eat in Sweden and they might not inform you about the risks because of that...(and I'm pretty sure other pregnant women in Sweden reads your blog :) )

  14. Anonymous, thank you for the papaya warning! My bf actually loves it and eats it quite often, I have not had much of it but only because I do not really like the way it tastes (at least not the kind we can buy in Sthlm).

    Stina, enjoy Lugano, lovely area! I am just entering the eight month myself and could not bear travelling (but right now I am very unwell in general and not even working). I was in New York just before week 28 and that was OK although a bit exhausting!
