Post partum wardobe (aka digital nesting)

What’s a gal to do when she loves clothing, but is on a tight budget? Polyvore! I love this app. It’s like playing dress up, and, shopping at the same time. But without spending money or suffering buyers regret 😜😝. Where I often fall down with spending money on clothes is buying a lot of statement … Continue reading

Nesting, negotiating and freezer stocking

Nesting, negotiating and freezer stocking

The nursery is done. All the items I researched have been bought, from big to ticket to small. The car seat is installed and checked by the local fire department. The stroller is here, and I figured out how to use the breast pump. Smoochie’s clothes have been washed, folded (at least eight times) and … Continue reading

36 weeks!Β 

Okay, okay I know. Three times in one day? What can I say: I have a lot of news πŸ€—πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ˜›. Also I’m trying to write shorter posts.  We’ll see how that goes πŸ˜πŸ˜ŸπŸ“’. The deets I’m off bed rest! Now to run to aerobics class. J/k. Being off bed rest doesn’t change much – I’m … Continue reading

Smoochie’s nursery

Smoochie’s nursery

Smoochie’s room originally began as a TV room, though I’d always thought it was the perfect room for a little kid to grow up in :-). When I was growing up, we were very poor and rented in NY, so my sister and I slept in the living room on futons until I was 15. … Continue reading

Maternity Pix Pt 2

Maternity Pix Pt 2

I’ll do a weekly update in a bit, as I’m now 36 weeks(!), but for now I wanted to get these bad boys up and out of the way :-).  

Maternity pix, pt 1

Maternity pix, pt 1

I’m the pits at posting a moment as soon as it happens, so my posts usually end up as long as War and Peace. So, to make up for that, I’m-a-gonna keep this simple. This is our couple’s maternity shoot, from Tuesday. My solo pictures will be done later and I’ll post them then. I … Continue reading

35 weeks

35 weeks

Just back from a prenatal appt and I’ll keep this brief.  All good on the physical front. Measuring two weeks ahead still, hb is good and they’re starting to ask about induction dates. While I’m obviously thrilled to see him, I’m not in the head space of needing or wanting to schedule anything. He’s doing … Continue reading

Someone asked me if I was pregnant today

Maybe I’m just delusional and don’t actually look pregnant.  Or maybe him and all the other people who’ve asked are fucking blind. And yeah I get sensitivity for different body types, but then if you’re not sure…. Don’t ask. Because what if I wasn’t pregnant?  But really… what else would be causing an enormous belly … Continue reading

IF – a lingering reminder around every corner

Before I launch into my own post, I want to send congrats to Caroline over at God’s Time Β Plan on the birth of her little girl! —— Lately, I’ve been feeling more emotional. Sure, it’s definitely related to being almost 35 weeks prego, raging hormones and all that, but it’s also related to feeling safe … Continue reading

34 weeks

Shhhh, don’t tell anyone, I started typing this on 33 weeks, 6 days….. I’ve reached the really, really tired stage. Today for example, I got up at 6:00 am (force of habit), had my 1 cup of coffee, answered some emails and fed the dogs. By 7:00 am, I couldn’t keep my eyes open, but … Continue reading
