Now what? My pregnancy is over so…no more pregnant life blog right? Wrong. It’s a little known fact that pregnancy is more than the nine months of carrying around a life in the womb. A woman does not simply stop being pregnant whether she gave birth, miscarried, or lost the baby by other means (I can’t… Continue reading Postpartum Week One and a Hospital Stay
Edit: this is posting after Baby. I still wanted to share this experience and a final look at my bump progression. The big excitement for me this week was experiencing my first taste of contractions. Now, before you get misled I need to clarify, these first contractions didn’t lead to labor.

There wasn’t much of anything left that… Continue reading Pregnancy Week Thirty-Six and Final Baby Purchases

It was fun to hear what people had to say, with about half the group having met me through my husband.
