Baby Blues

Summary: My story on post-partum depression I’m a private person, so only a few people know about my struggle with post-partum depression. This is one of my most honest blogs and it wasn’t easy to write, but I think it’s important to share my story. Before the birth of first child, I’ll admit I knew nothing about babies. I hardly ever babysat, and I had only changed one diaper. As if I wasn’t anxious enough,…

The Broken Collarbone Incident

Summary:   In a horrible case of parenting gone wrong, I overlooked what I assumed to be a minor injury only to discover we had a broken collarbone situation. Lesson: Bad judgements happen, don’t beat yourself up about it. It all started on a rainy Sunday. We had guests in town and wanted to venture out to the city, crossing our fingers the rain would subside. As the children were running down the sidewalk, Khaleesi dropped…

Halfway There…

I am quickly entering into my 5th month, which means I am halfway there and thank goodness for that. Its all downhill from here. I have been feeling so much better and finally have almost all my energy back. Its been really great for the past month that I have almost forgotten how awful my first trimester was. I have spent the last month or so catching up on all the things I let go…

So I’m at the end of my 13th week being pregnant and what a ride it has been so far.  Kudos to all the women out there who choose to have more than one child, because the havoc it reeks on our bodies is not for the weak. I started my week on the couch and stayed there until Friday, feeling ill and having no motivation what so ever to move. I wake up most…

One Trimester Down, Two to Go

So, I will officially hit 13 weeks in a few days marking the end of the first trimester and the beginning of the second one. I’ve been told things get much better, but so far I have not been seeing it. Here are some great things I experienced during my first 3 months:  1)      Fatigue: I have never been so tired and it’s all the time. I can lie on the couch and be out…

Preggers?!?

I wrote this post back on April 10, 2010, before any knew we were pregnant. Kevin and I have talked about having a child for a while now. We have actually been trying to make a baby for about six months now. This was by no means an “accident”, this was totally, completely on purpose. However, talking about having a baby and actually knowing you are going to have a baby are two different things.…

Six Weeks to a Healthier Me

  So, six weeks ago, or so, I wrote about my choice to go low-carb. I gave up breads, pastas, and junk food for Lent as a starting point. Now, Lent is over and I’m choosing to stick with my low-carb lifstyle and I love it. I lost 10 lbs and have about 10 more to go, plus I would like to tone it up a bit. Going low-carb was one of the hardest things…
