treasurehunter asked: YES TO YOUR ENTIRE GOTDAMN SHOPPING CART
disgruntled asked: This isn't a question, but I couldn't reply to your midwifery link, so ....You can totally change birthing providers! I changed from my Mengelesque OB to a team of kick ass midwives when I was 24 weeks pregnant and it was NO problem and is pretty common. My advice? Schedule a consultation and see how you like it.

On the eve of my transference to my 20th week of prego-ness (HALFWAY, YO), I’d like to thank everyone who has come here to share in the “joys” of this time with me. Y’all are teh awesome.

This blog’s name has finally become a reality. At 5:50pm, the Beiglet kicked me in the lower abdomen several times. It’s still kicking me as I type this. *SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE* —— Update: I just realized that I’m going to be a LOT less thrilled if this is happening at 3 in the morning…because that’s just going to suck. =\ —— Update...

I’m officially at week 18. It’s 10pm, I just took my nightly hoard of vitamins, had a coughing fit in the bathroom (dudeguy kindly passed on his chest cold), and they all came back up. The terrible thing is…I don’t feel like taking another damn handful of horse pills again. ——- Updated at 10:17pm - my body has since upgraded to simultaneous mouth and...

She’s awesome…and gives me hope for the future. kellyoxford: Dear Canadian Mother, Yesterday I tweeted something like, “I wonder how many waiters serve a pregnant Victoria Beckham and think to themselves ‘Eating for one are we?’” But I erased it because it was brought to my attention that Joan Rivers already said “Congratulations to Victoria Beckham,…
