When baby is 2 years old, you won’t remember how big your belly was when you were pregnant. This fact, along with our short term memory regarding labor, is why we have another baby…maybe that other thing we do with our honey has something to do with it too, but memory lapse causes us to do it unprotected.
Watching your baby grow and discover the world is an…Continue

Things are a lot different this time around than they were when I was carrying the Munchkin. I don't have half as much time to lounge around and do nothing. I haven't decided if this is a blessing or a curse. Most likely it is both.
I'm starting to make lists for the Belly Munchkin's arrival. Whether I'll actually ever manage to check anything off those lists is yet to be seen.
I have however, been able to squeeze some time in for weekly yoga. Not as much as I managed before I…Continue

When I found out that I was pregnant with my third child, I immediately went to baby center to calculate my estimated due date. Once I found out the estimated due date, I signed up for an account so that I could keep up with my baby’s weekly development. At the time I had an iPhone, so I downloaded the baby center application called “My Pregnancy Today”.

I haven't written in almost three months! End of pregnancy + new baby can leave one in an exhausted state of mind. I'm in the process of updating the design and name (changing to just Bliss + Baby... still happily wedded, just changing direction) I thought I'd kick off my return to blogging with an amazing giveaway!
Ever heard of Seraphine Maternity? I had not until they contacted me in December to do a review of one…

Last night as I was laying Erin in her bassinet it hit me- I no longer have a newborn, instead she's a chubby baby who's getting her own personality, learning and growing so much more every day. I dozed off into memory lane and thought about everything I cherished about being pregnant and when she first was a newborn.
1. The feeling of kicks and somersaults from the little human…Continue

No sleep is not an option for me. My sense of security is back in tact since I think we are on the same page in trying to work things out. I lean over and kiss his lips. I say goodbye and don’t hear a response before I walk out the door….not knowing what is in store next.
I text Jason the next day apologizing for leaving and explaining how he knows that his loud snoring keeps me awake.
He doesn’t reply. I text him again later in the day, and he doesn’t respond to that text…Continue

Your doctor will test your blood during your first prenatal visit to ensure that you aren’t anemic at the beginning of your pregnancy.

I was super excited and nervous when I found out that I was expecting in September of 2010. Just a few weeks before I found out, I was watching my mother struggle with her battle with Pick’s disease. Pick’s disease is a rare form of Alzheimer’s that affects the frontal lobe of the brain. In August of 2010, she was in the final stages and was admitted to the ICU with severe case of pneumonia. My dad was out of town, so I spent the last few days with her at her bed side along with my…Continue

There is a huge debate going on about the use of Prometrium in early pregnancy. Prometrium is essentially the progesterone hormone wrapped up in a suppository. It is often given to women who show low levels of progesterone early in their pregnancies. It will help sustain the pregnancy and growing foetus until the placenta is developed enough to take over the progesterone production which occurs at the beginning of the second trimester.
How did Prometrium save my babies? This is a…Continue

Have you heard of the new organization Save the 1? Sounds like a nice name for an organization, right? Everyone likes the idea of “saving” people. And “the 1” has a romantic twist to it. But, if you take a look at this organization, it far from being the just another non-profit out to save the world. It is an organization, whose mission is singular and focused. It is a pro-life group who is specifically targeting pregnancies that result from rape. So, to this organization, who is the bad…Continue
