Why he'll always be my baby

"I'm not a baby. I'm a little boy," says my son. Often. And he is right. He is growing up so quickly (seriously...who knew time traveled this fast?). And he has every right to remind me that he is more boy than baby.

I may think of him as my "baby boy" often, but evidently, it's not entirely my fault.…

Is society controlling your life?

After getting the kiddos situation in the kitchen with an art project this morning I set off for the family room to fold clothes. Exciting I know!  While folding I turned on the TV and quickly found myself being pulled into a talk show. The topic was unconventional marriages.  The host was interviewing a traditional Orthodox Jewish marriage.  First I found it ironic that the topic was unconventional marriages and the couple was in a traditional marriage. My second thought was, when…

Dad’s Guide to Packing Hospital Bag for the Birth of Your Baby

Dad if you plan on staying at the hospital after your baby is born, you will need to pack a bag for your stay so that you don’t have to run back and forth from the hospital.  Of course, if you forget anything you have the luxury of going back home and grabbing items that you forgot (including items that your wife or significant other might have forgotten).  The laboring…

The day I met my second daughter

DECEMBER 2012

I spent the whole month of December praying that Baby S would be late. I was dreading the newborn stage. Plus, we did not know her name at this point (I wanted Scarlet, Eric wanted Fiona, neither of us liked each other's favorite name [I did not want my daughter's name to invoke the image of Shrek!! Like anyone would really think of stunning Fiona from…

Why Do I Still Look Pregnant Even Though I Had My Baby A Few Weeks Ago?

Pregnancy is an exciting time and most mom’s can’t wait to meet their baby.  As your baby grows, your belly will continue to grow and get bigger so that you can house your growing baby.  Most doctors recommend that women gain between 10 to 40 pounds depending on your starting weight.  Talk to your doctor or…

Story of My Final Pregnancy - My Birth Story

I was super excited and nervous when I found out that I was expecting in September of 2010.  Just a few weeks before I found out, I was watching my mother struggle with her battle with Pick’s disease.  Pick’s disease is a rare form of Alzheimer’s that affects the frontal lobe of the brain.  In August of 2010, she was in the final stages and was admitted to the ICU with severe case of pneumonia.  My dad was out of town, so I spent the last few days with her at her bed side along with my…

OB-GYN Drama

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/04/ob-gyn-drama/

The start of January meant one thing to me: Baby time! Time to get all of the Christmas decor put away & time to focus on having our 3rd baby!  I, like many mamas spend the last couple months of my pregnancies resting and nesting. I call it my ‘R&N Time’…  Get the nursery together, wash clothes and blankets,…

The Bradley Method Helps Women Realize That Their Body Was Designed For Birthing

The Bradley method is another popular birthing technique that is used by many expectant mothers who wish to have an unmediated natural delivery.  This method was developed by Dr. Robert Bradley in the late 1940s.  He wanted women to realize that birthing was a natural process and that many women can give birth without medical intervention or drugs.  Dr. Bradley encourages women to maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating correctly and exercising during…

Are Child Birth Classes Necessary for Expectant Mothers?

Child birth classes are designed to provide expectant mothers with information so that moms are prepared for labor and delivery.  Every woman will have a different labor and delivery experience, but the techniques used to help minimize pain and prepare a mother for labor are similar.

I remember when I was a first time mom, I didn’t feel that I really needed to attend a child birth class, I had it in my mind that I was going to have a natural birth and knew how…

Is It Necessary to Tour the Hospital Before You Give Birth?

Many pregnant women don’t think about touring the hospital that they are planning to deliver at; especially, a mom who has given birth before.  When I was pregnant with my first child, I would have never thought about taking a tour at the hospital.  I took a Lamaze class when I was pregnant with my daughter and as a class we took a tour of the labor and delivery ward and learned about the hospitals procedures.

T Minus 2.. or 3.. or 9

So, these last days leading up to the baby’s estimated due date have been quite the emotional whirlwind for me.

Of course, like every other mama on the brink of giving birth, I have been totally anxious to feel the beginnings of labor, or receive SOME sign that the baby has decided to make his way into this world. And like every other wishful VBAC mama, I have been especially anxious, hoping that this baby’s birth might be different from my first baby’s.  In search of giving my son…

Expecting My Second Child - My Birth Story

My second pregnancy was a bit of a surprise as I wasn’t actively trying to conceive.  I found out in February 2000, that I was pregnant and was due October 9th, 2000.  When I was almost 20 weeks, I found out that I was having a little boy.  I was excited and nervous at the same time.  I had that feeling that I was having a boy since my cravings were totally different that my first pregnancy.  Continue reading my birth story at:  …

Expecting my First Baby As a Teen Mom

My first pregnancy was a bit of a shock, since I was just 18 years old and just out of high school. I found out that I was pregnant in April of 1996.  I was still living at home with my parents and wasn’t married to my boyfriend.  I knew firsthand that my parents would be very disappointed with me but for the most part my mom was supportive.  It was important that I tell them before they found out on their own, so I told my mom first.  She said she had already suspected something but…

Cheers to NINE Years!!!

It's so hard to believe that it's been NINE whole years since my uterus was housing those two little beings pictured above.  I welcomed them into this big wide world without having even the slightest clue how quickly time would fly.  Since then, it's been a roller coaster ride of ABC's, training wheels, boo-boo's, and temper tantrums.  They make me…

He's My Baby Brother!

My little brother was born today.  He woke Mom up at three o’clock in the morning because he wanted to come out of her tummy.  I was asleep so I didn’t know he was going to be born today.  When I woke up, Grandma said, “Good morning,” and told me I was a big brother today.  She made my favorite breakfast, yummy waffles with syrup and chocolate milk.  How did she know that was my…

I Broke A Promise To My Daughter's Birth Mother

This past Sunday I told my oldest child that I was thinking about going to church.  I don’t go often. She asked me in a very serious voice to be sure to pray for her sister.  I was surprised by this and jokingly asked her if she wanted me to pray for her sisters soul.  She said “Yeah mommy”.  I asked her why and she told me that when the girls attended a memorial…
