What’s in my Hospital Bag

All the ladies in my pregnancy discussion group I have on a phone app have been talking hospital bag packing for weeks and weeks. I feel like I am so behind on packing mine. But I really had not much of an idea of what to pack. Some said (almost) everything was provided by the […]

A Look Back at the Second Trimester


Lifestyle

My first trimester was not so fun, and being my first pregnancy, I had no idea what to expect in my second. Depending on when you count it, the second starts at around 13/14 weeks, and ends at 27/28 weeks. All I can say is ‘Whew, we’re on the home stretch!’ I can’t wait to […]

Ultrasound Day

After waking every hour, almost on the hour, all night, when it was time to finally get up, I was exhausted and wanted to stay sleeping. But the excitement of finally getting to see my baby on a black/grey/white grainy screen was much more appealing than the back of my eye lids. So I got […]

WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO BE PREGNANT? FOR REAL!   I’m writing this in my second trimester, because I honestly didn’t think I’d make it though my first. Every pregnancy is different for every person. I know that. But I had never felt so horrible in my life. And trust me, I know what it […]
