The Shelves Are Hung

The major project in the nursery this week doesn’t sound like a big deal...we installed three shelves on the wall above the dresser/changing table. Crucial background info: We live in a 100-year-old building. With horsehair plaster walls.

Setting Up The Nursery

The heartburn. Oh my god, the heartburn. Let’s focus on something else, shall we? (Impossible, but I’ll try.) At least the crazy shimmying going on in my belly implies that the baby is having a good time!

Solving The Seating Situation

The stairs to our fourth-floor walk-up apartment got a workout over Memorial Day weekend: We took advantage of three days in a row at home to get going on the nursery and various home improvement projects, which obviously meant (Ben, my husband) carrying tons of things up.

Adventures In Babyland

Greetings! I’m Kate, and I’m so excited to chat with you guys during the rest of my pregnancy. I’m currently 28 weeks along with my first baby, a boy, and I’m just starting to gear up, literally and figuratively. Over the next few months I’ll talk about what I’m feeling and doing, but I’ll also review products and talk about how I’m setting up my nursery and making choices about the gear I actually need (and which things can wait, since we live in an apartment with limited space!).

My Final Blog

This is my last Baby on Board blog. It’s hard to believe that an entire year has passed since I started writing it.  I’m no longer pregnant (phew) and it’s time to pass the torch to a new newly pregnant woman.

Birth Complications

Four Month Sleep Regression

Something has got to give. I’ve been up with Jack approximately 27,000 times in the past few nights. I’ve seen every single hour flashing on the clock for too many nights straight. It’s been like having a newborn all over again: Jack wakes up every hour or so… I nurse him…he falls back asleep…we do it all over again…and again…for the rest of the night.  He finally settles down a bit around 6 or 7 a.m., just in time for Charlie to wake up.

When the Well Runs Dry

The vomit bug hit us all—hard.  Charlie and Will got it so bad that they both puked for a good solid day and night.  After watching Julia, then Charlie, and then Will go through it, I knew what was coming when I felt the first pangs in my own stomach. My first thought was: what if I get so dehydrated that I can’t nurse Jack? (OK, that was my second thought, after: “Dear God, WHY?!”)

Pregnant with Twins

Twin births have increased 70 percent in the past three decades. Here, three moms of multiples share their pregnancy and birth experiences.

“I was excited, but I knew that increased risk came with carrying more than one baby.”

The New Baby

Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. 

That’s what my sister’s doctors told her they were doing earlier this week as they discussed her impending C-section.
