I can see the pupils dilate and the wheels begin to turn when people find out that I'm married to a gynecologist. Paranoid as this may seem, I've answered enough questions and survived too many bizarre interactions to be caught with my pants down again. My husband commenced his OB-GYN residency two weeks…Continue

I cannot be the only one…who used to be able to handle the workings of an entire company, chat on the phone with her best girlfriend about the insane sale they got on their latest pair of killer pumps, and paint their nails all at the same time, and not miss a beat. Only to jump ahead five years and not only not own any pumps that have been purchased in the last two years, but can’t even remember why they are standing in front of the open silverware drawer staring at it’s…

What items do I need to pack in my hospital bag when preparing to have a baby? Most new moms tend to over pack their own hospital bag and most of the items that they take with them are safely tucked away in their bag and are not used. Most of the time the hospital will supply your basic supplies such as soap, lotion,…Continue

What should I pack for my baby while staying at the hospital? Depending on the hospital that you are delivering at most of the time the hospital will provide you and your baby with basic necessities. In fact, when I was pregnant with my first baby I had no idea what I needed to take with me so I was stuffing all of the basic items that I might need…Continue

Many new dads don’t know what to expect during the labor and delivery process, especially, if they are a first time dad. If you have ever seen a tv show or movie that shows a woman giving birth, let me assure you that most labors don’t look anything like what you have seen on television. A woman typically labors for many hours before she is ready to deliver her baby and it…Continue

Dad are you prepared for the birth of your new baby? If not, now is a great time to begin preparing for delivery day. It is important to be prepared so that you know exactly what to do when your wife or significant appears to be in labor. The best way to learn about labor is to attend a child birthing class with your wife or significant other; however, child birth classes…Continue

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…Continue

I've been a parent for years now and I know that no matter what precautions we take, fevers and colds are inevitable. Two years ago, my older son had a fever the moment we got to Orlando. The whole trip was spent in the hotel and at the nearby hospital. As I normally do when my babies are not feeling well, I "overreacted". To me, it wasn't overreacting, but that's what happens when I Google symptoms. I swear, according to…Continue

In my family, we are serious, music-loving fools. Now, granted, none of us can actually play an instrument (well, not yet anyway!), but we sure as heck appreciate people who can. Yep, we dig it so much that it's generally playing in our house in some form or fashion 24/7.…Continue
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 apologize for being MIA on here lately, but unfortunately, my father had a bad stroke and was hospitalized. It's been pretty horrific to say the least, but rest assured, I HAVE been keeping a mental list of wacky things I've learned. And here they are:

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.

When I am quiet about my workouts and diet, it means one of two things - 1) I am just humming along, working out and eating healthy as normal, 2) I am flying under the radar because I have fallen off the wagon.
I feel ridiculous talking about my diet and exercise plan when people are losing everything they have, even their lives in tornadoes. But people all over the nation are talking about who won American Idol, Arnold Schwarzenneger's love child and baby mama (still!), and of…Continue
