The Single & Pregnant First Trimester Blues

After the tumultuous week following the double lined EPT test, I fell into a serious pre-partum depression funk that I wouldn’t be able to kick for months.

Officially Single And Definitely Pregnant

The night that I learned I was pregnant, I didn’t sleep at all and the next morning I started stalking my doctor as soon as the sun was up.

Week 28: Testing Positive for Gestational Diabetes

I’m in the home stretch now. Just about 12 weeks (plus or minus) until I can finally meet my baby boy Finn! The main overriding themes right now are continued low back pain, and being sleepier than I have been.            

39 Weeks: Waiting for Baby

I’m 39 weeks and 4 days pregnant, and the suspense over having to wait even another day to see my son’s little face and hold him in my arms is making me seriously restless.

Sexy, Single & Pregnant in the City of Angels

I wanted to be mother, don’t get me wrong. I was getting to that point in life where it becomes clear that things didn’t go as planned. I had a (somewhat) great career as the Features Editor of a popular entertainment website in Los Angeles, fabulously hip and fancy friends, a handful of Louboutins in my closet and a hip apartment on the coolest street in America (as designated by GQ magazine) but there were a few things that were missing, most notably, a ring and a kid.

Week 38: Pain & Beauty

I’ve been blessed with a healthy, relatively pain-free pregnancy apart from the typical first trimester nausea and round ligament pain. But at 38 weeks and feeling like a giant beach ball, I all of a sudden got hit with an excruciating pain in my left side that stopped me in my tracks and lasted more than 48 hours.

Week 37: Greening Up My Baby Act

I'm the furthest thing from Betty homemaker (I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve never even ironed before!). Yet as my baby bump continues to grow (and grow!) I’m finding that so do those notorious nesting instincts.

Week 36: Finding Balance

Moving my body is what I do to release stress and feel strong and energized. So when I didn’t know I was pregnant and was doing 20-mile training runs back in October for the New York City Marathon and climbing obstacle courses while competing in a Tough Mudder mud run, I couldn’t figure out why I was slowing down so much.

That is, until I had a dream of a little baby with blue-green eyes and dark hair that felt so, well, real that I immediately drove to the store to buy a pregnancy test…which came back positive. Surprise!

Week 24: Back Aches and Belly Envy

In the last four weeks since the previous blog, what I’ve noticed most is that my pregnancy symptoms seem to be amping up a bit. Still minor overall, but here’s an example: At 22 weeks pregnant, my emotions bubbled up.

Week 20: Itchy Rash

As spring heads toward summer, my baby boy is growing and developing right on schedule. He’s approximately the length of a carrot now (about 10 inches long), weighs ¾ of a pound and for the next several weeks, I’ll be gaining around a pound a week. Not to sound like a broken record, but yep, I still feel great! I am amazed at how easily I’ve had it so far.
