Here we go again …

by Karen on April 15, 2013

Judah has big news to share. Only he says, “I’m not a big brother, I’m a SMALL brother!” His small(er) sibling is due in late September, which makes me 17 weeks along. Things are going well so far aside from the continued nausea, the hip and pelvic pain that showed up around 10 weeks, and […]

I’m still here

My three-month break from blogging wasn’t planned. That’s why I never had the chance to post a note explaining my absence. I was always on the verge of posting an update. Tomorrow. Next week. Any day now. Soon. It started with good news. Shortly after my last post in August, I found out we were […]

One year ago today

Since Judah was born, time has been on warp speed. But man, this moment still feels like a million years ago. It’s true that a lot has happened since the day I found out I was pregnant — we moved three times, Tony has started two different jobs, we traveled to Europe. But more importantly, […]

I promise this blog will someday be a personal finance blog again. At the moment, though, eight pounds of adorable have sort of eclipsed everything else in my life, so he might as well monopolize the blog. And now a birth story! I promise to leave out the gory parts. Mostly. I should start by […]

Waiting

by Karen on November 23, 2010

So I bet when I didn’t post yesterday, some of you wondered if my next post would be an adorable picture of my baby. Especially since Sunday night was the full moon. HA. Nope. Still pregnant! Despite my wishing, hoping, and guessing that he’d come yesterday sometime. We had a lovely weekend that included an […]

So close yet so far away

Today I’m 37 weeks pregnant. That means I’m medically considered “full term.” At this point, baby is pretty much done with all of his major development. For the next few weeks, he’ll just be gaining weight. Since big babies run in both of our families and rough estimates from my midwives have already determined he’s […]

I think I might be nesting

One of the most noticeable pregnancy symptoms I’ve faced (one of them) is extreme fatigue. I was told myths about a burst of energy at some point in the second trimester. I never experienced it. As my due date rapidly approaches (21 days!), I’ve been wondering if I’d experience the pre-labor burst of energy accompanied […]

One of the funniest things I’ve noticed throughout my pregnancy is how little people know about midwives — especially young people who haven’t yet considered having children and older people who gave birth during a time when hospital births and obstetricians were pretty much the only option in the United States. Midwives are still much […]

I figure I’ve been complaining enough about how HUGE I look, I might as well provide photographic evidence. Happy Thursday!
