Hurrah! You did it! You are twenty weeks pregnant!
Congratulations on reaching this important milestone on your first ride on the pregnancy roller coaster. You have just ricocheted out of the loopy and bendy bits of the ride and embarked upon the long, steep climb before the sheer vertical drop.
Having suffered through the early stages…Continue

Determining when you plan on taking maternity leave can be an overwhelming process since you don’t know the exact date of your baby’s arrival. However, it is very important that you find out what your rights and benefits are early in your pregnancy. The best place to find out your maternity rights are is to refer to your companies employee handbook, to determine if…Continue

We had the most beautiful Spring day in Pittsburgh on Saturday… Sunshine & Blue Skies!
There was still a chill in the air; a perfect day to throw on a scarf! I pulled out my white jeans and wore them for all but a couple of hours before my 3 little boys reminded…Continue

Everyone has their ‘thing’ that motivates them to lose baby weight, get healthy and tone their body. For me, after 9 months of pregnancy, there’s nothing like a NEW OUTFIT in my PRE-PREGNANCY SIZE that motivates me to get my body back!
Some can/will put a time frame on when they want/need to fit…Continue

I got dressed! Like, not yoga pants, a sweatshirt and pony-tail dressed, but really dressed. You know, in real clothes? Having an infant around the house can make any mom compromise her style but I want to show you one of my favorite post-partum ‘looks’ and give you a few tips too…
For me, a comfortable skirt is…Continue

When I found out that I was pregnant with my third child, words couldn’t describe how excited I was after the initial shock wore off. It took us a while to become pregnant and though the timing might have been off slightly everything worked out. I was blessed with a beautiful, healthy little…Continue

This is the last ‘What I Wore’ Pregnancy Post you will see from me during this pregnancy and let me tell ya, there’s nothing fashionable about it! I am ready to POP and if I don’t go into labor on my own this weekend, I’m scheduled for a C-Section on Monday, February 25, 2013.

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

During my weekly pre-natal appointment, I couldn’t help but think about what a shame it is that this practice met me at this point of my pregnancy. I’m definitely not myself. I’m at the end of this roller-coaster ride. Ready for it to be over. Ready to get off and not ride again until I eat an ice-cream cone, take a bathroom break, lounge around,…Continue

I’m alive. and large. and Pregnant. Still. I haven’t wrote in my blog recently because honestly, by the end of the night (my blogging/writing time) I’m spent and my brain stops functioning. Literally. It stops. I’ve been a busy little bee around our nest though! Some days I ‘forget’ that I have an extra X lbs attached to my…Continue

Most women complain about their breasts being sore and tender to the touch, possibly even, before they even find out that they are pregnant. Unless your one of those lucky women whose breasts don’t change in response to pregnancy. However most women begin noticing the changes the moment that they found out that they were pregnant. These changes are in preparation for breastfeeding your baby.

FEBRUARY IS OFFICIALLY HERE!!!
Let’s shout it from the rooftop! I made it to February! Only 3 weeks, 3 sleeps to go! Or 24 days! What sounds better? I can’t decide if saying the number 3 vs. 24 or saying the word weeks vs. days sounds better. Either way; I…Continue

As of today, I have 4 weeks, 3 sleeps left in this pregnancy; yippee!!! Unless however, baby decides to make an appearance earlier (which I would be totally fine with). A lot has changed for me this week. Baby dropped and moved off of my sciatic nerve (yay!) and into pressure zone (boo!…Continue

As I approach the, “Holy Moly, I better get ready for an infant!” stage, I’ve been starting to put together my diaper bag and hospital bag for baby #3! I feel like I’ve come a long way in packing my diaper bag. When I had Rocco, I was (obviously) a first time mom and packed him up as if we were going away for a week! I…Continue

There has never been a dull moment in raising our 2 boys. Never. Each day, each week, each month, each year has been such an awesome adventure and has opened my eyes to a whole new world. My way of thinking has changed, the way I view the world around me is different, our way of playing, how we talk… It’s always been…Continue

When I was pregnant with my son, I had trouble finding cute maternity clothes. Most of the stores that I went to only had a very small section of maternity clothes. In fact, most stores don’t carry any plus sized maternity clothes unless you go to a specialty maternity store. Plus sized mom’s shouldn’t have to settle for clothes that aren’t comfortable or don’t fit her growing belly. I wanted to help mom’s find cute plus sized maternity clothes without going from store to store and…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
