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…

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…

Why Do I Still Look Pregnant Even Though I Had My Baby A Few Weeks Ago?

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…

Working with Colic and Postpartum Depression

Colic is characterized by inconsolable crying that usually lasts for 3 or more hours a day, and several hours at night for no apparent reason.  You’ve checked all the obvious things, the diapers, is baby hungry? Too hot? Too cold? Fever? Teething?  Ears?  No matter what you do, baby is uncomfortable, and usually spitting up quite a bit after feedings.  Then the crying starts.  You try walking baby, sometimes that helps, but not for long.  Finally, exhausted…

I'll take the extra pounds.

I’m pulling my hair out.  Literally.

 

I’ve reached the postpartum stage where a woman’s hair begins to fall out.  Yay.  If you know me, you’d know that I cannot stand loose hair.  It disgusts me.  I’m not quite sure why, but I just know it’s not for me.  I’m the friend who will pick loose hairs off of the back of your shirt.

 

During this part of my postpartum period with my firstborn, I was pulling out handfuls of hair in the shower every day for a month.  I’m…

Lesson Learned From Playing TV Mom Trivia

I've thought about that a lot over the weekend, not having anymore kids.



Being pregnant, once you get over the morning sickness and when your ankles aren't swollen, is a beautiful thing. Its a new beginning, it's a time of great love and excitement, shopping sprees and hubby wanting to cook you anything you crave. It's a time to be pampered (which I was) and experience an extra bit of love (which I did get) and be able to push the everyday heavy lifting and hard labor of cleaning and… Continue

The Real Story On Chocolate and Depression

A new study has linked chocolate with depression once again. The article merely tells us what our intuition already knew, and the fact that chocolate makes us feel better at some point in our lives isn't exactly news. But how does chocolate make us feel better? Why? What's the reason we tend to crave chocolate more during PMS? The article was so unbelievably incomplete that I felt compelled to provide additional information.







The researchers hum and haw about the… Continue
