Warning! This may be a little long, but it did take FOREVER for this little girl to grace us with her presence. And she was worth every bit of agony I went through.
My due date was November 12th, 2003. From the very beginning of my pregnancy, knowing my due date, I had…Continue

You will still experience bleeding. After I had my baby via C –section I still bleed for about 6 weeks. Some people bleed for a shorter time period or even longer each…Continue

Did your hospital or midwife allow eating during labor? Most of us MomCavers weren’t allowed to eat once we arrived at the hospital. The reasoning behind this (barbaric, in our opinion) practice is that in an emergency, general anesthesia may be used and any food eaten could aspirate into the lungs. While this may be a concern in very rare cases, most laboring moms are doing the most physically demanding work of their lives and could use some sustenance.

My son was born via C-section. That definitely was not the way that I wanted to go, but that is the path we had to take. And at the end of the day, I had a healthy baby boy, so that is all that mattered to me. I did the skin-to-skin contact and breastfed him as soon as I was able because I had read so much research on those connections being important to a newborn.…Continue

We think all moms' bodies are beautiful. So we asked moms around the world to show us their mummy tummies!
Wow, I can’t believe it has been two years since I was impatiently awaiting for you to arrive. I remember when I was on my way to my final doctors appointment, I didn’t know that it would be my final visit as a pregnant mom. I had a previous history of low amniotic fluid during my previous pregnancy and she order the ultrasound to ensure that I still had enough fluid…Continue

On Monday, February 25, 2013, we welcomed our 3rd son into the world…
He’s perfect… all 8 lb. 6 oz. of him…
From his dark head of hair down to his 10 tiny PiggyToes…
Being that this is my 3rd time packing for a 3 night, 4 day stay in the hospital (I have C-Sections), I feel well prepared for what’s to come and know just what I need for our time there! I wouldn’t say that I over-pack but I definitely like having my stuff with me so I don’t take…Continue

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…Continue

A C-Section is a major surgery and can be very scary for most moms, it was for me. I was terrified when the ultrasound technician discovered that my son was breech. My doctor order an ultrasound to check my amniotic fluid levels once I reached 40 weeks because with my oldest son, my fluid levels dropped after…Continue

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,…Continue

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…Continue
