Pregnancy Journal: 17 weeks pregnant with Baby #2
I cant believe Baby and I are already at 17 weeks! That’s almost HALF WAY! Actually, while I’m writing this, I’m ALMOST 18 weeks, and this post may not even go up until then… Whoops. It’s funny since sometimes I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever, and I clearly haven’t been. It just seems that some...

I’m in a lot of pain. Like, a LOT. From no sleep to my cracked, dry and bleeding breasts, to my stitched up lady-parts, to my back spasms to my stomach cramps, it’s safe to say that the past few days have seen a constant battle between me and my body. But you know what?...

Pregnancy Journal Update: Week 30
Hey everyone. Once again, I decided to forgo the whole “weekly” update on my pregnancy journal, mostly because I’ve been terribly busy with so many things, including another trip up to Baltimore, some stuff with the blog and also, if I’m going to be honest, I’ve just been really tired, and haven’t felt motivated to...
