A Portuguese mother in the Netherlands
Her name is Teresa. She is Portuguese, born in Lisbon and raised in the south margin of Tagus river, a beautiful area of Atlantic beaches, old villages, palaces and castles, tasty food and good wines. Now, she is living here, in the Netherlands, where she and her Portuguese husband work. She began to write her blog last March, after becoming pregnant. Teresa, her husband and their son David, born last October, and the two family's cats, are the Fabulous Five whose history you can follow in Os 5 na Holanda.
I like her blog very much. She is funny, has a very good sense of humor, subtle and provocative, her writing is light in the form and deep in the content. By reading her blog, we follow the journey of a woman in a very different country from her own, without family and old friends around, who became pregnant and has to deal with different pregnancy care traditions and habits.
Teresa takes us on a special journey. I recommend to all the women who are expats or want to be, or simply have curiosity for other cultures, to read her blog. Teresa's blog is written in Portuguese.
These are the links to some useful and interesting entries:

Besides that, you'll get to know what David likes ;-)
