This week last year, I miscarried at 9.5 weeks. It was bloody, painful, terrifying, and very sad.

This week was much better- I gave birth to our rainbow boy on Monday! Relatively short labor,...

Yeah, me too-I'm 33 weeks. I'm glad all the school activities are over, and have no desire to be social. I think it's "emotional nesting" just preparing ourselves mentally for the challenges ahead.

If it helps, the cramping was much...

Last week I took out and inspected my 10-year old stash. Ugh! All the elastic is rotted in my large fitteds and pocket dipes. Replacing the elastic was a PITA. All my covers were in fine shape, as...

I gained 40 with my 2 previous pregnancies. Gaining less with this one, but exercising more. In the last week or so I've gained a bit more- I think with the heat I'm bloating more.

I overdid it a few weeks back and hurt my lower back. I pulled out my belly band and used it for a week- was a lifesaver. I got mine from motherhood maternity 10 years ago.
