Unfortunately, you took a tumble and fell down while taking your unborn baby with you. The first thing you have to do is: Do Not Panic! Yes, it is hard to keep your wits at such a delicate time, but you have to think rationally as anxiety or added stress can be really bad for you and your baby.…Continue

5 Things I'm currently craving and it has nothing to do with a pregnancy.
My random, strange and sometime extra out of ordinary cravings have been under the attack of questions such that suggest a perceived pregnancy many times prior to now. However, I didn't crave any of these things even when I was actually pregnant.…

My husband and I had the Grievance meeting in February regarding the death of our twin daughter Aminah. We showed up at a church in Webster Grooves, Missouri. At first I was wondering why the meeting was being held in a church but I went ahead with it and met the midwife in…Continue

Often times, the pregnant women learn about their fibroids during the initial ultrasound as the non-cancerous masses hardly cause any symptoms. However, majority of the women these days are the victim of this condition. These fibroids are basically the abnormal growths which develop on one’s uterus. The exact reason behind the growth of these masses is still unclear but there is a possibility that the condition may run in the families. The fibroids can’t be eliminated during pregnancy as the…Continue

Bringing a child into this world is rightly considered to be one of the toughest things anyone can do in their life. Having a developing baby inside one’s womb places extra strain on a woman’s body, not just in terms of the extra weight that needs to be carried. There is a greatly increased…Continue

While it’s your right to take time off to have a new child, care for, and bond with it… the government here in the good ol’ US of A definitely doesn’t make it easy. Taking maternity leave as a teacher in America is an unfortunate adventure into lots of red tape! This is especially true if…Continue

I am happy being the mother of one. My husband and I are satisfied with our family size and neither of us is pining for another baby. Don't get me wrong - I do sometimes wonder what life would be like with a second child (and it usually scares me a bit). Also - at least in my mind - I think of myself as too old to have another baby.…Continue

Yesterday embarked a very sad day. October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day and a candle is lit to raise awareness. This is a true story about my miscarriage; my infant loss. I was 19 years old the first time I became pregnant. My…Continue

At a baby shower I attended today, there was a little card on my plate that read, in squiggly, pink script, “Your Advice to the Mother-To-Be”.
You’d think that as a new mom and blogger on everything pregnancy and motherhood-related, I’d have mounds of advice to give… right? But I…Continue

From full-time nursing school (RN) with part-time work just to graduate to full-time work with part-time BSN program, getting and keeping the house in order can be the least of one’s priorities. Laundry builds up until there’s clean laundry piled on the front loaders, the baskets are full with dirty laundry, and the socks go unmatched. However, I…Continue

*Originally posted in One Awesome Momma.
Yes, you read that right. I managed to get through my pregnancies without having to buy maternity clothes. And it's not because my belly was so small that I didn't even have to; I just didn't want to. Why? First, they're expensive; and second (at least for me), there's not much…Continue

Once you’ve had your first child, the second baby conversation starts to happen… often.
You think about timing, age difference, and things like “is our home big enough?” or “can we really handle two kids?”
But let’s be honest: now that the hard part is over, you just wonder how in the world you can go through the first six months all over again (lack of sleep and raw nipples especially), but, at the same time, you don’t think it’s humanly…Continue

I knew I shouldn’t have gotten used to the great night sleep, perfect, clockwork naps, and how amazing you were doing with independent play the past few months… I knew that.
But I did… I sort of took it all for granted. That’s how well you were doing!
Until, of course, that nasty molar popped in a few months early.
This week has been rough on Mommy, you know. Between your ravenous appetite (most days you almost eat…Continue

We were out in New York City with friends when we decided we were ready.A packed bar downtown, the kind of place you forget. We’d both had way too many nights like this one: too many watered down vodka sodas, nights spent shoving through the crowd, competing for the bartender’s attention.
This wasn’t the scene for us anymore, it was easy to see.
I don’t remember…Continue

If you watch the news you may have heard about Zika, the scary virus, transmitted by mosquitoes, which can cause severe birth defects to babies born to infected mothers. This poses a special concern for women who are or plan on becoming pregnant. There is SO MUCH conflicting and seemingly inaccurate information floating around message boards and Facebook.
It seems like Zika is either taking a larger than life presence as the facts get distorted and sensationalized, or being…Continue
