I Will Know My Food

logo_new

As a Stonyfield Yo-Getter I was so happy to see their promotion of "Know Your Food". There are so many things put into our foods and many times we do not realize what we are eating. It's important to read labels and know exactly what is going into our bodies, and into our children's bodies.  Each and every bite that goes into your mouth matters to you, your family, farmers, animals and the planet! It's not too late to add getting to know your … [Read more...]

Addy’s Birth Story

Ever since that Thursday night that I had a false labor scare I questioned every contraction. I knew when labor really did start I would doubt it was the real thing. And that's exactly what happened. Last Monday morning we woke up for work as normal. My husband was going to take LA to his parent's house for the day so I got him ready first. As I was getting him ready my contractions started. They started out being 6-10 minutes apart for the first … [Read more...]

39 Week Pregnancy Update

Yes, 39 weeks. I really didn't think we would make it this far, but here we are, still pregnant! I went for my weekly check up yesterday. According to the literature, baby Addy is about 20 inches long and a bit over 7 pounds.

Last Thursday I was 2-3 cm dilated and this week I am at … [Read more...]
