  • Two Weeks Postpartum
    on Dec 6, 2010
    Yesterday our baby Indie turned a whole two weeks old. This past two weeks has been the happiest yet most stressful time of my life. My past two weeks have been juggling time. Time for visitors, time for myself, time for just the three of us - time f...

  • We start the negatives...
    on Nov 17, 2010
    So here we go starting the negative days from the due date. With the negative days come negative thoughts. I know that people are anxious about Indie's arrival. I'm glad so many people are excited, but like I said in a previous post, guess who's the...
  • 40 Weeks
    on Nov 16, 2010
    As normal as it is for many women to go over their estimated due date there are never many documented photos of such an event. Here is mine. Today I went to visit my midwife. She didn't do a vaginal exam or anything, it was just like any other appoi...
  • Just shoot me already!
    on Nov 15, 2010
    So tomorrow is the big estimated due date and I feel fantastic today. Nothing is going to happen. Why me? Only two women have made it to and past their due dates from my due date club and all I can do is ask myself why am I one of these few that are...

  • Is it ever going to happen?!
    on Nov 14, 2010
    There are only two days left before my estimated due date. Something tells me I'll still be pregnant. Damn - I was hoping not to make it to that 40 week midwife appointment! Last night I woke up having contractions again, but they petered out on me...
  • Three Days = Three Worries
    on Nov 13, 2010
    Something I worry about more than anything while waiting for the baby is the privacy issues that are ahead of us. My two main concerns are unwanted visitors at the hospital and unwanted visitors when we get home. The first days and weeks with the bab...
  • Four more days...
    on Nov 12, 2010
    About a week ago I started having some major pelvic pressure. As the days have passed it has become more and more painful. Last night was the worst it's been so far, it was so bad that I am now afraid to move around today and when I do move it's not...

  • NO. I HAVE NOT HAD THE BABY!
    on Nov 11, 2010
    Everyday I have my phone calls that I am expected to make. My dad and my granny. I don't know why they expect me to call them everyday, it's annoying at best. If I don't call one or the other or both of them, they call me and tell me how worried they...
  • Midwife Appointment
    on Nov 10, 2010
    Only 6 more days until my due date and I had 39 week appointment with the midwife. It did not go so well... I got to the MW appointment at 9:51AM, the appointment was supposed to be at 10:00AM. They're usually really good about getting people in an...
  • 39 Weeks
    on Nov 9, 2010
    Today I hit the 39th week of pregnancy. I can't believe the amount of pressure I am feeling down below. I can't believe that I am even more anxious than I was yesterday. Mostly I can't believe that Indie isn't here yet! Being this pregnant is very...
  • Is today the day?
    on Nov 8, 2010
    I woke up at 6:00AM on the dot this morning and was wide awake. So awake that when I turned on the bathroom lights I didn't even squint like I had been in the dark all night. As many people know, you typically have a big burst of energy before going...
  • Single digits!
    on Nov 7, 2010
    As of today I am in the single digits of days left until my estimated due date(EDD). I don't know of many people who do much this late in pregnancy because they are too uncomfortable to get off of the couch, can't bend over or just plain don't want...
  • When will it end?!
    on Nov 5, 2010
    I have been growing more and more anxious over the days about Indie's arrival. I'm not uncomfortable or anything - I just want her to be here already. The wait and not knowing when something is going to happen is killing me at this point! I had a goo...
  • 38 Weeks
    on Nov 2, 2010
    Well here I am at 38 weeks gestation, this is possibly my last belly pic before Indie arrives! My appointment went well this morning, everything looks good, sounds good, numbers are where they're supposed to be. After describing what's been going on...
  • Myth Busted...
    on Nov 1, 2010
    Well as it turns out, Scalini's Eggplant Parm did nothing for me. Bummer. :-( On a side note, I'll be 38 weeks along tomorrow and have a midwife appointment in the morning!
  • Scalini's!
    on Oct 30, 2010
    We're back and had a blast! I have lots of pics to share! Here is Scalini's! We didn't really know what to expect since we had never been there. It was in a shopping strip and when we got in we were blown away! The atmosphere was awesome and the...
