5 years ago (almost to the week!) Matt and I were getting ready to get married. Pretty much every person we met had some kind of marriage advice for us. The overwhelming majority (mostly those of older generations) said: “YOUR LIFE IS ABOUT TO CHANGE! YOUR RELATIONSHIP WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!” Since Matt and […]

We all know that birth plans are ideal scenarios that rarely go as hoped for. Thus, this is my birth wish list. Some of these things are complete unknowns (because I don’t really know what my labor will be like), and I’m writing down for for the sake of putting them on paper for my […]

From the moment I became pregnant, I started listening to Pregtastic podcasts. When I was out walking, while taking a shower, while making a meal, on car trips – everywhere. I. Learned. So. Much. I was very sad when I reached the end of the 250ish episodes, but I discovered the continuation of Pregtastic: New […]

I’ve had this paper star floating around the nursery – and our house – for a long time. I’m just not sure what to do with it! Should I hang it over the crib? I wonder if it would feel a bit sparse just the single star in the center? Does the black and white […]

When I first started to think about childbirth classes, I looked into what was available here. There wasn’t a ton. From what I heard, there’s a Bradley-like class 45 […]

25 weeks doesn’t seem that far along to me, but when I think that I’ll be in the 30s in just over a month, it feels like there’s not that much time left! Of course you do spend a lot of time in the 30s, but it still sounds so advanced! Remember how last week […]
