Bloat Baby (13w3d)

I used to hate it when one of my blog friends got pregnant and stopped having anything interesting to say. Well, I think I get it. There is a lot more interesting (albeit, frustrating, heartbreaking and fucking awful) to write about when you are in the throes of trying to get pregnant. Or maybe that's... Continue Reading →


Second trimester, ho! And baby mama bodies

12 whole weeks pregnant! Depending on how you divide the trimesters, I have either hit #2, or will in a week or so. But why wait?

I just don't usually get colds . . .or if I do, they are... Continue Reading →

Clearing Out (10w2d)

La and I moved out of a tiny (no, really,  it was 600 sqft! ) 120 year old house three years ago in preparation to have babies (and to quit paying to repair things like cast iron pipes. ) Despite knowing from the moment we saw the house which room would belong to our future... Continue Reading →
