For Women

Perspective

I’ve been in a lot of pain lately. All physical, pregnancy related. Normal stuff. I got tired of complaining about it last night, I knew I was being a pain, I knew it was annoying to hear, and I knew (and know) that there are so many more women in situations and circumstances during […]

If it isn’t one thing…

For the month of May I have been a bit AWOL, but I’m hoping life is going to get itself back on track. I just had my 32 week check-up and since I’m not in the hospital or on bed rest, I would have to say that I’m doing pretty well.

Around my 30 […]

Happy Anniversary…

Yesterday, Bill and I celebrated our 4-year wedding anniversary. For the first time in almost two years, we went out together, without Olivia. It was weird. Eventually we’ll be able to go out without any children (haha), but that small baby step was enough for now.

My brother-in-law and (may as well be) sister-in-law […]

We survived!

We’ve been back from our trip to visit the family for about a week now. We had a terrific time visiting family, Olivia behaved beautifully, and I had lots of good food (as usual!).

Buying Olivia her own ticket was probably the best decision I have ever made (regarding air travel, that is). She […]

Birthdays, the wedding, a fall, new words–a busy couple of weeks!

My birthday was wonderful, lots of fantastic people called to wish me a great day (my mom called me first thing in the morning), and we went out for a really great sushi dinner. I also stopped by Barnes & Noble and FINALLY got a journal for the new baby. Not sure if I […]

21 weeks, 5 days!

I am now 21 weeks, 5 days pregnant. I can’t believe that my due date is less than 130 days away. Possibly earlier, considering Olivia’s early birth. Last week we went in for the “BIG” ultrasound, and only waited 1 hour this time! Considering we had Olivia to contend with while waiting it was […]

Pregnancy just wouldn’t be the same without a trip to the ER

As promised, here is the saga of how I took a trip to the “express” care while visiting the family, then the trip to the ER two days after I returned home. If you have read the archives (or are a long-time reader), you may remember how we had to make a trip to […]

Apples to Oranges

I’ve been very exhausted this past week, which is why I have been so lax on the posts. I’m sleeping every spare minute, and it still doesn’t seem to be enough. I thought that was supposed to end after the first trimester? I suppose running after a 16 month old while 19 weeks pregnant […]

And then there was poop…

As I mentioned in my last post, we arrived at my mom’s house, safe and sound. I had a cold, but was trying to “power through” so I could have an enjoyable trip.

Saturday morning: the start of our first full day on Eastern Standard Time. We were scheduled to attend the wedding of […]

They really should change the age requirements!

I was always so stoked about the “lap child rides for free until age 2” policy airlines have. Who wouldn’t be? You can fly to visit the family (or wherever), without having to pay for an extra seat for two whole years! It’s wonderful! Terrific! Great!

Yeah, until they hit about a year old […]
