Rachel and I talk about what others have been talking about from the news a lot in Italy, what holiday just passed in Florence, and what it's like to be pregnant in Italy.

We answer questions like 'What's the difference in Italy and America between':

  • Maternity leave?
  • Preferential treatment?
  • Doctor's appointments?
  • Parties/planned events?
  • Gifts?

Vocabulary Mentioned:

  • Fare il ponte - Make a long weekend (Literally: Make a bridge)
    • Ho fatto il ponte. - I made a long weekend with the holiday.
  • L'ecografia - Sonogram
  • La portafortuna - A good luck charm in reference to the first nightie the baby will wear usually made of silk/cotton.
