Bald, Fat and Crazy: The Musical

The title of my blog and this first page warrant a bit of explanation. Clearly, I was Bald. And clearly I was Fat. However, when you come to realize that my baldness was caused by chemotherapy and my ‘fatness’ was caused by being pregnant at the same time, then the mere fact that I was…

It affects everything. (pregnancy mentioned, sort of)

Sometimes it becomes really obvious just how much Cora’s death has affected my life.  But on days like today, it’s REALLY obvious.  I belong to a Due Date Club on Justmommies.com forums.  And I stick out.  My perspective is totally different. ~When discussing birthing preferences, I need to be in the bed hooked up to…

No doubt about it – I’m up the duff!

Well after 6 days of positive tests, I believe I am definately up the duff!!!!!  When AF was late I finally started believing it, and then after very convincing BFP’s at 4w0d & 4w2d, I don’t think there is much denying it!  Jason seems to be very excited, but a little cautious – as am…

When the Dam Breaks

When pregnant I tend to carry my kids way out in front.   This phenomenon becomes even more freakishly impressive in the final days of a full term pregnancy. Lately it has been fun to go out in public and watch people’s reactions.  I, of course, have no concept of how big I look or how pregnant…
