How I Got Through 2 Pregnancies Without Buying Maternity Clothes

*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…

Iron Deficiency and What You Should Know

Iron deficiency was a HUGE problem for me before and during my pregnancy. So much so that I actually ended up needing iron infusions before delivery. It took several hours and a dose of steroids to stave off any potential reactions, but it was a complete game changer for me!

Letter to My Clingy, Cranky, Teething Child

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 9.28.24 PM

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!

Why I Wasn’t Ready To Be a Mom

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.

Eating During Labor | Is it okay to eat during labor? New episode of BLABBERMOM |

Did your hospital or midwife allow eating during labor? Most of us MomCavers weren’t allowed to eat once we arrived at the hospital. The reasoning behind this (barbaric, in our opinion) practice is that in an emergency, general anesthesia may be used and any food eaten could aspirate into the lungs. While this may be a concern in very rare cases, most laboring moms are doing the most physically demanding work of their lives and could use some sustenance.
