KarithHey, Y'all I'm Karith, a Texas-raised bi-coastal transplant and I am on way to becoming a first-time mommy. I am also a 30-something professional stand-up comedian, author and speaker who resides in both NYC and LA. I performs on each coast and many of the states in between. I recently got married and even more recently found out that we were pregnant. Yes, it’s a “Honeymoon Baby”! So, now, because of my occupation I have to have fun, make fun, and laugh my way through this major event in my life. I want all of you who can relate to have a laugh too and if all goes well- something pretty fantastic- aside from my first child will come out of this. You can read more about my adventure on <a href="" target="_blank"></a> and learn more about me and my comedy on <a href="" target="_blank"></a>.

My Olympic Embryo

Well, I suppose Baby Bean is officially a fetus, no longer an embryo, but really, who wants to be “labeled” so soon in life – right? I don’t know if this kid is being influenced via osmosis by my watching the 30th Summer Olympic games, but Baby Bean is acting like it. The last time…

Where Is My Bump, My Bump My Lovely Lady Lump???

Sorry if you’ve got that Fergilicious song in your head now- if it’s any consolation it’s in mine too. What I can’t believe is that I’m writing about this so far into my pregnancy. I’m officially 28 weeks and I still don’t really “look” pregnant. I know I’ve written about this before, but that was several…

“Do You Have Sharp Pains In Your Vagina Yet?”

That is the question most asked to me by several friends in the past 48 hours. My first response was, “Um, WHAT?!!” Then when I asked them to repeat the question to be sure I wasn’t hearing things I said, “Why was I not told of this earlier?”…Well that answer is simple. If women knew EXACTLY…

Fruity Baby

Cool news Everyone! Today my baby is the size of a pomegranate. At least, that’s what informed me this morning. That’s cool – I suppose. Last week, “Baby Bean” was a banana. (Odd, but I guess they know what they’re talking about.) Before that, I believe navel orange was the description de jour or…

Baby Brain is REAL!!!

I never would have thought so before now…and yes, I can see and hear all of you who are shaking your heads and chanting, “Never say never again, Karith!” Of course, that’s not just a great James Bond movie, but an expression for a reason. I have done some of the dumbest, flakiest stuff lately,…

I’m Not Fat, I’m Pregnant….

That’s the sign I want to wear around my neck, although it would probably be best displayed on my ass. I apparently am one of those “lucky” women who fall into the category of pregnant but-not-really-looking-like-it. This has been confirmed by several sources including CJ, my darling husband, who told me the other day, “You…

Ah, the Joys of Little Boys

Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails- that’s what I was told little boys were made of…and girls are supposed to be made of sugar and spice and everything nice, right? While I don’t believe that applies to all boys or all girls it was enough to warrant my leaning toward wanting daughters- ONLY daughters….

It Had to Happen Sooner or Later…

Just because you know something’s going to happen doesn’t necessarily mean you’re prepared for it when it does. Say, for instance, when your normal clothing stops fitting properly. Or we can be more specific and say your jeans…your “FAT jeans.” You know, the good old faithful pair that are always in the closet for you…

Yes, I’ll Have a Slippery Nipple Please!

Bartender, I’ll take a Slippery Nipple please – as in the awesome shot that’s part Bailey’s, part Kahlua, part Butterscotch Schnapps – as opposed to the itchy ones I’ve got now. Trust me, I can’t believe it either. This being my 1st ever pregnancy, my world has been turned on it’s side. My body is…
