Going from DINKs to parents

Dual-Income, No Kids.



That's what my husband and I were for a very long time. We spent years together working, traveling, figuring out who was the better chef (me), who was handier around the house (him) and having long discussions about the type of family we wanted to have one day. I had been with my…

Dear New Mama...

Becoming a mom is a whole bag of mixed emotions (whether you want to admit that or not). You're excited, anxious, terrified, happy, sad, panicked, overjoyed. Those two pink lines throw your mind into overload as you think about every possible thing you will experience and learn on this new journey. 

Our daughter was a surprise. A BIG surprise, but, we were ecstatic. And terrified. Utterly terrified.…

The sleep thing – or lack of

While I was pregnant, amidst the numerous “oooh you’re glowing” niceties, I vaguely remember a couple of people smirking “get your sleep in while you can” at me.

I politely laughed it off, thinking yes yes – I know I’ll have to get up every few hours to feed. How hard can it…

Breastfeeding – the most natural thing in the world?



It’s supposed to be the most natural thing in the world, snuggling up with your baby to provide the best nutrients on earth – mother’s milk. While for sure, many people I know did breeze through the breast feeding initiation like it was the most…

Postpartum depression is badly named

I am one of those women who tells mothers-to-be about about all the wonderful things to look forward to in their pregnancies. You won't hear any horror stories from me about childbirth. Funny? Yes. Mundane? Sure. But not scary. (There's no need to scare pregnant women, people, they have enough worries/fears already zipping through their heads.)

But there is one area where I am always serious. And that is about postpartum depression. This is because most people don't understand what it…

3 Ways to Lose the Baby Weight

Pregnancy weight is a touchy subject for many new mother’s.  No matter how much you gain soon after your baby is born most mom’s are ready to get the extra weight off.  Many mother’s typically lose a small amount of weight after having their baby.  However, I often hear mom’s talk about losing the baby weight a few weeks after they have given birth.  Rapid weight…

What I Wore: Body after Baby

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/04/19/what-i-wore-body-after-baby/

Last week, I had my postpartum Dr.’s apt and she told me that I can start exercising again!  Since then, I’ve loved getting back into a little ‘workout routine’ and its been motivating me to want to keep working at it so that I can fit into all of my pre-prego clothes again!  For the time being though,…

Dessert with Rocco

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/04/12/dessert-with-rocco/

During breakfast on Wednesday morning, I reminded Rocco that we had a date night.  The two of us were going out after dinner to attend, ‘Dessert with Someone Special’ at his pre-school.  Both of the boys got to choose who they wanted to take and to my surprise, Rocco chose ME and Roman chose daddy.  I say, ‘surprised’ because I really…

I Lost my Marbles

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/04/11/i-lost-my-marbles/

What a morning.  You know, it’s so funny to me when people say, “Look at you!  You’re so put together!”  or “I don’t know how you always have it together!”  This whole “together” thing makes me laugh.  And then roll my eyes and shake my head.  Let me tell you, just because I did my…

Post Pregnancy Motivation Outfit

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/03/20/post-pregnancy-motivation-outfit/

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…

What I Wore: Post Baby

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…

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…
