Learning How To (Sorta) Breastfeed Before Baby Arrives

We attended our breastfeeding class on Saturday.  We learned some basics about it such as, positioning, latching on, identifying early hunger cues, health benefits, financial benefits, etc.  We also learned about nursing bras, breast/nipple care, pumps, and storage of breast milk.

Yet Another Appointment Tomorrow…

Tomorrow I get to see my OB again.  She wanted me to come in again this week instead of next week due to the high blood pressure last Thursday.  I haven’t heard anything yet about the blood tests, so I’m hoping no news is good news.  I don’t really want bad news

Such as: Medical bills (ultrasounds aren’t cheap! and birth/delivery isn’t likely to be either…) Diapers Clothes Additional insurance (health and

Good-bye Sleep, Hello Baby Feet

Today was a very long day.  It’s not easy to go to work and do all that is needed to be done on a Monday when super exhausted. I didn’t sleep well at all last night.  It’s the worst night of sleep so far this pregnancy. I went to bed around 10:30pm

A Look At The Growing Belly Of The Second Trimester

Recently I’ve heard more comments about the size of my baby bump and have been catching more people staring at it too.  This makes me happy to know I’m showing more and it’s more obvious that I’m preggo and not just fat!  When I got dressed on Saturday to go to a
