Wow, I’m finally writing again! I found a few minutes of free time to sit and thought I’d give you a quick update and an awesome find that I ran across online.

My littlest man is now almost 8 weeks old! Can you believe it? Time has flown. However, he is still a tiny baby. With [...]

Over a month into the transition of having a new born and we are still not on the same routine yet. As he was a premie he went from sleeping constantly to now eating every two hours and at the longest he will sleep for four hours at night. Needless, to say I’m tired. No [...]

It’s been 4 weeks since my second son was born. Keeping up with the blogging is tough right now. Between getting into a new routine, getting enough sleep, working, trying to start a second career and keeping up with a 2 year old, I’m worn out by the time it comes time to type my [...]

Last Monday, we took our son for his first check-up. At birth he weighed 5 lb 11 oz and at our first visit he had dropped to 5 lb 3 oz. It is normal for newborns to lose between 7%-10% of their birth weight and regain it within the first two-three weeks. There are several [...]

Within that first hour of being hooked up to the monitors and thinking about how this couldn’t be happening, my contractions slowly began. By noon the contractions began to regulate and were coming about half strong and in the 80s on the monitor. I was only dialated to roughly 1.5 cm and the baby’s head [...]

I apologize for posting this over a week and a half late, but I haven’t exactly had time to post anything at all. My little bundle of joy decided to surprise us by coming 4 weeks early! I did try to write in the hospital believe it or not, but I couldn’t get my husband’s [...]

If this is your second or third pregnancy you know how important it is to prep your children for the arrival of the newest member of the family. Children need to be included in family talks before the arrival of the baby. As I’ve stated in my past blogs, toddlers and kids of all ages can [...]

Birth announcements are something that women tend to think about after the baby is born. I encourage you to pick out 3 options prior to the birth. This’ll make your decisions that much easier once the baby comes and you’re knee deep in poopy diapers, nursing, trying to get on a schedule and dealing with [...]

Many mothers have their first baby shower and receive tons of new baby clothes, blankets, onesies, socks, etc. You look at the clothes and admire them, stark and crisp and ready to be worn. Many mothers then immediately hang them up or place them in the drawers, trying hard to keep them as “new” as possible until the [...]

As explained yesterday, I’m not here to badmouth my first doula. I am here to provide additional information that you might want to consider when searching for a doula. Take this information and use it as you see fit; really look into yourself as to what you need in a doula.
My first experience with a [...]

Last week, I found my doula and hired her. Two weeks ago I scheduled interviews with several doulas and by last Friday I had narrowed my search down to one. I chose to go with Penny De Gregorio who is in Sparks.

This is my second child and I did have a doula on my first [...]

As promised, here’s my updated birth plan. This is just an example of a layout you can use. You can go to www.birthplan.com and login to create your own custom birthplan, where they’ll ask you all of the pertinent questions and you pick and choose what you want to use. For more information regarding writing [...]

Well ladies, it is getting close to that time! I’ll be getting my bag ready in about 2 weeks and thought I’d blog about all of the things that I’m trying not to forget. Plus, I found a site or two that threw in some extra stuff that I hadn’t thought of. Have fun and [...]

I registered at the hospital today. One more thing off of my plate and one step closer to delivering my second child. Here’s a quick story of how my registration began…
I showed up at the hospital with my husband and son. As we walked inside we reminisced about how my husband didn’t drop me off at the emergency [...]

I love affirmations! Admittedly, I don’t do them enough. They take time to remember and include in your everyday life. When you have a busy schedule, making time to meditate and focus on your affirmations is a tough chore. However, once you get into the habit of saying them, it’s a breeze.
For those of you [...]

Don’t forget to schedule your 4D imaging. You’ll want to do this between 26 and 35 weeks of pregnancy. It can happen sooner, but you’ll end up with the best pictures later in the pregnancy as the baby fills out.
3D-4D imaging places are pretty easy to find these days; I typed ‘4D imaging Reno’ into Google and found 4 [...]

As most of you know, I have been on a quest to find skin products with all natural ingredients and have finally found an amazing product line, as well as a hidden gem in Reno. On Wednesday, I was scheduled for a manicure and pedicure at “New Spa,” a place that offers all natural and organic spa [...]

Keeping track of what week you are while pregnant is a pain. A lot of women forget the exact week until they go in for their next appointment. Tracking my weeks should’ve been easier—seeing as I’m writing a blog about it—but I just realized at my most recent doctor’s appointment that I screwed up my weeks [...]

31 weeks and the days are just flying by! I panicked last week when I realized I had roughly 2 months left to get things in order. The nesting has begun and I’m on a race against time to clean, organize, rearrange and purchase last minute items. I’m trying to pace myself, but I don’t [...]

Many of us are self-conscious about our bodies after our baby is born. Our breasts swell and change, our stomachs are still huge, and we are wearing our pregnancy clothes. This can be frustrating, uncomfortable and depressing. I found that purchasing a good girdle can make all of the difference. I bought one immediately after giving [...]

I’m down to ordering the diapers, which I’ll do at www.greenmountaindiapers.com. I researched loads of sites that sell diapers, but none gave me the images and information that this one does. Diapers can be an overwhelming challenge if you’ve never purchased them before. There are many to choose from and not a lot of people to [...]

First of all, let me say that keeping up with this blog along with getting ready for a new little one is quite a challenge. I don’t know how many people out there are reading this, but please understand when I say I’ll be cutting down my blogging to 3 times a week. I plan [...]

How many times have you turned over a product and have seen a gazillion ingredients that you have no clue of how to pronounce, let alone what they mean? Very few of us have been taught how to understand and read the labels. For the safety of you and your family this is one area [...]

Here you are, pregnant with your chest growing every day. Mind you, if you are going to nurse, this pre-birth size will just get bigger after the baby is born until your milk regulates itself. How do you deal with bras before and after the birth?
No one really tells you how to deal with this. [...]

You could be carrying your own grandchildren! Wow, what on earth am I talking about? I had never heard of this until I went to my prenatal yoga class and heard someone talking about how she was carrying her grandchildren at that very minute. I didn’t have a chance to ask her about what she [...]
