My first 18 days as a Mom....a long entry
Wednesday, April 07, 2010      9 comments

My little man has been up all morning but fingers crossed he is down for the count for a few hours. Not that I don't like having him around, but I do like to rest my arms and back for a short time. He does NOT like to be put down until he is v... Read more

210.5 !!! Hooray Breast feeding! I have been eating like a horse (a healthy horse for the most part) but the pounds seem to be dropping off. I fit in my preggo pants but they are a tad tight. I still cannot stand up for long periods of time a... Read more

I still haven't had time to write down Max's birth story. Two days after coming home, he was readmitted to the hospital for fever, jaundice and dehydration. He's home now, but I am not producing enough breast milk and he is not latching at all... Read more

I'm pretty drained so a full report will be coming soon but Maxwell Charles arrived in this world on March 20th at 2:36am. He was a whopping 10lbs 4 oz and 20.5 inches long. I was in labor for 34 hours and after hour 18 my midwife decided I ne... Read more
Allergies, a bit of progress and stupid people saying stupid things

Blurg. I feel like I have a serious St. Patrick’s day hangover. Horrible headache, super thirsty, dry itchy eyes and an unsettled stomach. In actuality, I barely acknowledged the parties going on around me (Savannah has a HUGE celebration) and... Read more
40 week appointment
Tuesday, March 16, 2010      7 comments

I had my 40 week appointment today and didn’t really find out anything new. Heartbeat is the same though it always seems hard to find. That worries me a bit but each time the midwives say that the baby tends to wiggle away from the Doppler. I ... Read more
Almost 40 weeks and missing my workouts.

Well, the due date is tomorrow. I’ll be honest- I honestly thought this kiddo was going to show up early. I knew the odds were against me as first babies are normally late. However, I really felt like my first dating u/s was wrong. There was n... Read more
Is this ever going to happen?

I'm starting to feel like I may never go into labor as I watch several of the women on my birth boards and from my class have their baby. I've still got 6 days left before my due date and with my midwife, induction isn't an option until I'm 41... Read more
37 weeks! Hooray!

Holy Moly I am full term! Woohoo! However, just because I full term, I am trying to remind myself that I could still have up to 5 weeks to go! As my midwife says “The apple will fall from the tree when it’s ready. If it’s not ready by 41 wee... Read more
Lent, Healthy Lifestyle Check-in, Food Diary

I’m starving today but I think it’s more mental. It’s Ash Wednesday and while I am not doing my traditional fast due to the pregnancy I am doing my own version and not having any chocolate for the day. That’s a HUGE sacrifice at 36 weeks pregn... Read more
Not health related at all, except Food Diary.

I have no desire to be a productive member of society today so I¡¦m avoiding what little work I have. After 4 months of non stop craziness, I don¡¦t really feel all that guilty. It¡¦s nice to have some quiet time, though it does make the day g... Read more
36 weeks tomorrow...let's get this show on the road!
Monday, February 15, 2010      2 comments

Well, after this weekend, I’m starting to think I won’t be making it until March 16th. I could be 100% wrong, however, based my calculations I’m thinking I’m a probably closer to 37 weeks than 36. My original dating u/s was the only thing that ... Read more
Getting over a meltdown.
Thursday, February 11, 2010      3 comments

I had a bad meltdown early Tuesday morning and I just haven’t felt the same since. The more think about it the more I realized it stemmed from being completely and utterly overwhelmed with life. Around 2:30 that morning I woke up and I couldn’t... Read more
One Year of Sparking

Holy Cow! It’s my one year Sparkeversary! That’s awesome! I feel like I should have some “State of the Laura” blog to sum up my first year but there’s not much to say. This pregnancy has been a happy detour in my Spark People goals but yet S... Read more

Wednesday, January 27, 2010      6 comments

I don’t have much to blog about that's diet/exercise related these days. Work is STILL a total disaster and sucking up all my brain power. By the end of the day I feel like mush. The major project I’ve been working on is closed and done on Mon... Read more
