An Open Letter to All Expecting Mothers

At a baby shower I attended today, there was a little card on my plate that read, in squiggly, pink script, “Your Advice to the Mother-To-Be”.

You’d think that as a new mom and blogger on everything pregnancy and motherhood-related, I’d have mounds of advice to give… right? But I…

Glucose Screening Test Alternatives

I know that the glucose screening test is considered necessary and I would never want to do anything to put my baby or myself in danger so I will (somewhat reluctantly) have this test done.

It should be no big deal right?

The Infertility Dance

Great expectations not always timely

Sometimes with childbirth, the real labor part comes at the beginning and not the end


Driving across town with a vial of my husband’s freshly spun sperm staying warm beneath my blouse, I thought, “I must really want to have a baby.”

After almost three years of trying to conceive, I would have hopped down State Street on stilts and squawked like a chicken if I thought… Continue

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
