Halloween Costume Ideas

Friday, September 25th, 2009

With Halloween barely a month away, it’s time to start planning! While some expectant moms may feel self conscious and don’t want to dress up, those who have other kids at home or a party may not have a choice. Here are some great ways to be creative and save on costumes for yourself (do they even make maternity costumes??)

1. Raid your husband’s closet for old shirts, pants, and undershirts. You can cut (more…)

Pregnancy Diary – Week 6

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

So this is what the dreaded nausea feels like. It takes up my whole day, my whole night, my whole life. I can’t eat, drink or sleep. Jerry forces me to eat at least crackers or toast, but that makes it worse. The good news is that I’m barely vomiting. I wonder if I will feel better if everything came up. Either way, not a minute goes by where I am not consumed by nausea. I try to distract myself with something, anything, to take my mind off the nausea. It works, sometimes. Most mornings I get to work 2 hours late. It takes superhuman (more…)

Pregnancy Diary – Week 5

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

I woke up a little queasy this morning, but nothing too major. I’m savoring my last few days before the nausea kicks in full force. I ate everything in sight, including the two chocolate bars that have been eying me the past few weeks. I doubt it’s cravings yet, but it’s a good excuse.

I spent all morning at work reading up on week 5 of pregnancy, eager to find out everything that my embryo and I are going through. Here’s what (more…)

Obama Urging Moms to Return to School

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Over the past few months, we’ve been hearing a lot about President Obama urging moms to go back to school. Many moms don’t know that there are scholarships available to help pay for school, according to income. For single moms, or couples with a low income, that’s a big benefit! Getting your degree now is a great way to be prepared for a good job once the economy picks up.

In reality, this grant is available to anyone who meets the income (more…)

Pregnancy Diary – Week 4

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

So luckily, the nausea didn’t kick in yet. I expect it will start within the next week or two. I am feeling more tired, though and I’m constantly running to the bathroom. At this time, my baby is less than .04 inches, around the size of a poppy seed! Hard to imagine…

At week 4, the fetus attaches to the uterus lining so the placenta can form to nourish the baby throughout the pregnancy. The vital organs will begin to form as baby starts to grow at an incredible rate. Tiny bumps on the body will eventually (more…)

Pregnancy Diary – Week 1,2,3

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

You want to know the truth? I cried when I first found out I was pregnant. And they weren’t tears of happiness. I mean, of course deep down I was thrilled, but all I was able to think of was how petrified I was of labor, and how I would be able to raise a child in this economy. I ran to the phone to call my husband, Jerry.

It has always been my dream to tell Jerry I was pregnant over a candlelit dinner, with two glasses of wine (not for me, actually!), soft music in the background and a quiet corner table. When the time came, however, I forgot all (more…)

Dealing with Colic

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Colic doesn’t have a definition. There’s no explanation for it. Sure, people will say it’s reflux, gas, stress, tummy aches, and hunger, but none of those should cause crying for hours on end without consoling. Colicky babies actually don’t cry more often than non-colicky babies. They just cry for longer and are harder to console.

Babies communicate through crying. They let you know they’re wet, hungry, tired, cold, or hot by fussing. Crying doesn’t necessarily mean they’re in pain. Babies that cry often but are easily consoled are not (more…)
