While pregnancy seems long – a gradual progression – there is nothing gradual about becoming a mother. Motherhood can blindside you, even if you read all the books and prepped the nursery […]

I Wore Leggings as Pants and I Liked It.

  I couldn’t help but chuckle a little this week when the story came out that United Airlines forced two girls to change their clothes after they tried to board their flight wearing leggings.  SAY WHAT?  Yes, that is an actual news story.   As it turns out, the story was a complete PR nightmare […]

About a month before my due date with my second child, I decided that this time around I was going to make freezer meals. In preparation of becoming a family of four, I knew it would be up to me to make sure we all ate normally, even if we weren’t all sleeping normally. I […]

The Pregnancy Condition that Almost Killed Me Postpartum {Preeclampsia Awareness}

What is Postpartum Preeclampsia? Mixing two seemingly oxymoronic pronouns, the term “postpartum preeclampsia” doesn’t sound possible. How can you have a pre-condition post-pregnancy? While not medical advice- if you have questions, please ask your doctor- here is a quick summary of some Google searches and my personal account of the condition.

My Journey Through Postpartum Depression and Anxiety

When I was pregnant last year, I showed several early warning signs that I would be an unlucky mother with postpartum depression and anxiety: terrible rages I couldn’t calm down from, days of crying over every single thing that went wrong, and a constant voice in my head, belittling me and telling me I was […]
