Here's the conversation of Jane and another woman:
"No thank you; chocolate-covered pretzels aren't part of my diet," Jane says.
"They're not part of mine either, but I just ate five!" the other woman says, laughing a bit as she says it.
"Well, pregnant women can eat this kind of stuff! It's good for the baby! Pregnant women don't have to be on diets..." Jane says - but she goes on and on for about a minute (a v.e.r.y. long minute), but…
As our pregnancy nears the end, our Friday nights are no longer our usual Friday nights. Friday night has always been (like many couples) a night to go out to dinner and spend the evening around the town as a way to unwind from the…
If your a parent (or know someone who is or will be) that needs some baby supplies then now is a good time to go out and get them.
Babies R Us is holding another "Great Trade-In Event" and this time they have upped the discount to 25%. The premise is simple: Bring in an old car seat, stroller, travel system, high chair, play… Continue

What kind of luck is it that there is only 8 weeks left in our pregnancy and we are just now finding out about this free pregnancy journal. We ended up buying a couple of different journals around week 20 of our pregnancy so we could fill out parts along the way before we forgot the details (it's almost completed now minus the birth). Never the less, we… Continue

Stork parking was an exciting thing when my husband and I first found out we were pregnant. We couldn't wait to go to Babies R Us to finally park in the coveted "Stork Parking" spots. Granted, we first parked in it a few days after we found out we we're pregnant and I was only about 5 weeks along but fast forward 7 months later and I have realized what a difference… Continue

It's quite fascinating that we're able to say the baby is only 10 weeks away. It's just around the corner! The 30th week was quite a week for us. We had our monthly visit with the baby doctor and got to hear his heartbeat again. We love hearing his little heartbeat! She had everything looked wonderful and we would even get one… Continue

There are several days during the week that have some sort of special meaning to them. Monday is the day we all dread as we are heading back to work. Wednesday we look forward too because that signifies that half the work week is over (don't say "Hump Day", you sound stupid), Friday is great because the weekend is here and Saturday and Sunday are… Continue

We had a little bit of fun tonight. While sitting on the couch we noticed that Mommy's shirt was moving up and down. Our growing boy is getting big enough to start having visible kicks at 25 weeks! So I took out my iPhone and recorded a couple of videos. Yay for babies!
Dude, when did going to the movies become something you had to save up for? I know that bitching about the cost of movie-going these days has been done, but I can't help it. Everytime I go, I wonder how the people that run the theaters and/or the people who run the concession, are able to get their A.I.G. on and continue to charge consumers prices for things like candy and soda that are so clearly robbery. Oh, and now, not only are they continuing to violate us in the most base and lube-less of… Continue

A bit of history: About a month ago, a friend of mine decided that she was going to have her IUD un-installed. She thought she was "ready to start thinking about trying to come to a decision about" getting pregnant. She knew the consequences. We both knew the consequences dammit but that didn't stop us from throwing caution to the wind and then watching it fly right back and smack us in the faces with the sound that I imagine liver makes when dropped from a great height and lands on the… Continue

The pregnancy test reads positive and we all, or at least most, jump for joy with excitement and anticipation of the journey we are about to embark upon until we are reminded of… Maternity Leave.
The appropriate time to share your pregnancy with your employer varies depending on your situation and your personal preference. I had been working at a small office for about for years and considered my coworkers to be friends so I shared the news right away. However, when the time came to… Continue
I hesitated long and hard before writing this post but today, I was in the sort of mood when you over analyse things of the past.. you know for example why did that girl hit you in the playground 10 years ago...? ok 20 years ago, FINE 25 years ago at least! Or what about that boy who was a real jerk and broke your heart. That sort of memories that make you think, why? what did I do to deserve this? It rarely happens, I am more the sort of person who gets up, brush up my hands and moves on, but… Continue

We met face-to-face for the first time what seems like yesterday, but years have passed, and I have known you for a lifetime. You have led me on a remarkable journey through this forest of existence, and have taught me to cherish every detail. You have guided my feet toward a less traveled pathway, and on it, you have opened my eyes to a world full of treasures all others have taken for granted, cast aside or completely ignored.
Any other mamas out there with the Monday morning blues? Maybe it's the "let down" after Mother's Day. Who knows. I know I've got 'em bad enough that my daily post today on ChitChatMom was about wanting to crawl back in bed and pull up the covers.
If you've got those Monday morning blues... leave me a comment and tell me what your excuse is.

Yep, 30 weeks. That just sounds so imminent. Doesn’t it? Yikes!
Even though I am not in my last month I am sleeping, rather not sleeping much at all, as if I was in the last 3 weeks or so of pregnancy. That bites. Other than that- well- I will update ya’ll on that a little further down the post. Stats first.
. . . Although I can clearly remember one day shortly after coming home for the first time with my baby walking over to his crib and just looking at him. Taking him in with my eyes amazed that I created him in my body. . . .
