Where’s my Head been Hiding?

Our Pregnancy Announcement I’ve been scrolling through the photos that DH and I have taken over the last few months…well since finding out that we were expecting. Its kind of funny and sort of sad but there’s something that each and every photo has in common. My head is missing! I’m sure you get where this is going.

Kate Middleton Hospitalized… Me Highly Offended!

Yes, I’m highly offended! I’ll be honest this is not the most eloquently written post (well really none of my posts are… I’m no writer). Basically what happened was I saw RED… and I NEEDED to post. I had to get my feelings out before running out of the door today. So I apologize in advance…

I’ve been reading comments left on blogs in response Kate Middleton being hospitalized for Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG). Some of the comments are obviously left by those who suffer from as simple case of ignorance on the subject at hand. I’m shocked at the way some many people are down playing how sick she really is, and how dangerous HG could be!

Home Birth…Are We Crazy!?

Planning a Home Birth Experience

Actually, no we are not crazy… At least WE don’t think we are. I’m a nurse and oddly hospitals scare me. It could be because I’ve seen too much of the “behind the scenes” production.

So the thought of bright lights and tons of strangers in and out and possibly not having my OB available doesn’t sit well with me. Read More »

Welcoming the Sleepless Nights

I promise I’m not a total complainer. I actually can’t stand negative people… But the fact that a few of my posts have been on the “neggy” side of things I just wanted to let you know that really, I’m not that person! So here it goes…

At this point I expect the total opposite of what others tell me about pregnancy and motherhood. Read More »

3rd Trimester Blues

Ari (my mighty kicker) and I wake up every morning at 6am weekend or not, it’s just what we are used to. We are already on a schedule… I wonder if it will be the same once he is born???

DH is downstairs cooking breakfast, I am on my own personal feeding schedule to avoid nausea/vomiting as much as possible.

This morning I sat up in the dark feeling like a failure as a mom already. I never expected to be so ill during my ENTIRE pregnancy. I looked forward to entering the 2nd trimester because that was the “magic” trimester that my morning sickness would disappear…. but here I am nearly 32 weeks and still suffering. Read More »
