Spontaneous Crying

Have any of you pregnant ladies burst out in tears without warning?

The other day, we came back from our three-week trip visiting family out of state.  While we were there, our families threw us baby showers, which was awesome!  There were still Continue Reading…

Pregnancy Pillow Review

Preggle
It’s been over a week since I received my Leachco Preggle Comfort Air-Flow Body Pillow.  I absolutely LOVE it.  While it has a rather awkward shape that the hubster and I get a laugh out of, it does Continue Reading…

Leg Cramps

When I read about leg cramps in my pregnancy books, I was already several weeks past the point when it said they might begin.  I thought I was in the clear.  I was painfully mistaken.

It’s a Boy!

After waiting 12 weeks to see pictures of our little blessing, it was super fun to see that our bean has transformed into a healthy baby boy!  Seeing his little movements was so fun.  We came home with nine  ultrasound pictures of him, including Continue Reading…

Hungry Hungry Hippo

I am so ravenously hungry today!  I’ve never felt so hungry in my life.  It’s insane. Continue Reading…

You Know You’re Pregnant When…

Sheesh! Continue Reading…

Hunnie, We're In For a Handful

This week, for the first time, I was able to feel our baby move!  It was a very strange but exciting experience.  Exciting, because now I know that he or she is happily and healthily moving about in there.  Strange because, well, it feels like a Continue Reading…
