No Signs of Labor

I went to the doctor yesterday, and the conversation went about like this: Dr: “Hey Lola!  So just a few days past 39 weeks… How are you feeling?” Me: “Hi there.  I’m still feeling pregnant.  No news.” Dr: (As he measures my belly) “So are you feeling any contractions?  Feeling like the baby is dropping […]

Why We Are Trying Out Cloth Diapers

So the few of you who have seen my nursery know that I have a large stash of cloth diaper supplies. “GASP!  You are doing cloth!?!”  (Spoken by the girls who do not have kids yet, and are thus completely grossed out by the entire concept.) “Snicker snicker… you’re thinking you’re going to do cloth, […]

The title of this blog probably makes it seem like I’m going to write about the pains encountered during pregnancy or childbirth, but no, I’m just writing to talk about the pain I am experiencing right now due to my eyebrow wax. But, I’m going to dive in a little deeper than just my eyebrows, […]
