Links of Love – Baby Style

Obviously, I’m fluctuating between baby thoughts and moving chaos; all my recent posts seem to reflect that these days. That’s my “Life as MOM” right now. Hang on, though, another two weeks and my life will be back to normal. Whatever that is. In the meantime: check out these links for some great baby stuff. […]

Story Swap: Our Baby Story

Warning: I’m guessing that today’s post and subsequent links are not for the faint of heart. If you don’t want to hear about episiotomies, tearing, or other physical details of labor and delivery, come back another time. Recently Amy posted a funny (as always) little tidbit about swapping Childbirth stories. If you’re a mom, whether […]

Things I’ve Learned This Week

Hospital food is not as good as I remember it. Chocolate pudding can be eaten with a fork, when necessary. Husbands don’t like to dine in the same room where you just gave birth. Even though you think your tummy is full at 6 pm, if you are 2 days postpartum and nursing, you will […]

Don’t Hate Me Because My Labor Was Short

It’s been an exciting day to say the least. After a good night’s sleep last night, my girl decided to come a day early! This morning my labor started at about 7 am. We got to the hospital at 8:30 and she was born at 10:01. How’s that for a speedy delivery. When I’m a […]

This past week’s heavy duty contractions and nausea kind of threw a wrench in my plans, like getting the house cleaned to sell and planning out all sorts of uplifting blog posts. Those things fell by the wayside as I […]

Guess That FishChick’s Weight

Well, I’m still nauseated, but no active contractions. I would really like a break from feeling bad. On the plus side, I have cat-napped all day. Shari prompted a weight-guessing game in the comments of the previous post. I forgot that I meant to start that. So, here’s the deal. She’s already claimed 9lb6. (No […]

Baby Daze

Sometime soon, we think. Yesterday’s appt: 50% effaced, 3, almost 4 cm. Lots of action last night. I am really nauseated today. Thanks for praying. (I’d really like the nausea to go away. That’s never been one of my symptoms.)

Baby Watch T Minus 3 Weeks and Counting

Well, it’s been an “exciting” week. More Braxton-Hicks contractions than I care to think about. Wednesday I had contractions every five minutes for about 10-12 hours. Since my previous births have been fairly fast and furious, the idea of labor starting gets me a little nervous. I know I need to be on my ready. […]
