About a week into my dairy free adventure I was repeatedly told I was being crazy and she doesn’t have dairy allergy, backed up by research saying the chances of her having a dairy allergy and being exclusively breastfed is about 2%.

The Difference of a Year

The Difference of a Year

It’s Christmas morning and I’ve just laid Brooke back down after a 630am feeding; a third successful night of sleep with our new routine. *fingers crossed* If you had told me last year that I would have a beautiful baby right now I wouldn’t have believed you. I’m still trying to wrap my head around … Continue reading

Who I Married

Who I Married

  Kevin and I were kids when we met. 19 and 21. I recall nervously twirling my straw paper at dinner and finding myself in disbelief that I landed myself such a hottie.

I had my 40 week appointment today and she still looks good. She’s just fat and happy, all camped out inside of me. Hibernating. I’m dilated to 3cm and 70% effaced currently.

Pregnancy Compliment Skeptic

Pregnancy Compliment Skeptic

  I’m struggling accepting that my body is no longer my own body. Like really struggling. Last night, as I was getting ready for bed I noticed a glistening white lightening bolt on my tummy. A stretch mark trying to make its appearance. The tears started streaming down my face as I climbed into bed. … Continue reading

5 Alarm Fire

5 Alarm Fire

My midwife paused, “Well, that’s a 5 Alarm Fire. You need a neuro consult immediately.” shit. Ok … let’s rewind… It happened once like three weeks ago. I’d just get this overwhelming sense of dizziness. The grab the table, you just stepped of a tilt a world, you’re going to fall feeling. My heart would … Continue reading
