Prepping and recovering from pregnancy and labor

New moms are often confused, scared, and just don't know what to make of the state of affairs under the belt when they go into labor. You hear horror stories and...well, ladies, sometimes the stories do have some truth to them. What happens below the belt during labor can be much more than you would have anticipated. Having been through three labors and having witnessed two natural births of plus 9 pounders, I'm here to give you the run down on the topic.  When you are going through labor, you are dilating your cervix and the contractions are pushing the baby down the birth canal. As this happens, it causes the head of the baby to crown and the whole...

He had told me that even without baby I would have had the same hair loss. For that...

I'm officially in love for the 4th time

Hello, been off having a baby and am amazed at how much can change in a span of a week. From ambling along with a too big belly ready to pop to popping out said baby to being at home with this new addition,  and seeing and experiencing my body transition from pregnant to healing and concurrently nourishing this baby has been so eye opening. It is so crazy to think how this body went from one extreme to the other and how much has been packed into one week! I have to thank modern medicine for making it possible as I've learned I'm not one for pain and I needed much medical intervention to get through this pregnancy and...
