Surrogacy Series: How I Decided to Become a Surrogate

I’m five months pregnant with a beautiful little girl. But she’s not my husband’s baby— and she’s not mine either; I’m a surrogate! Becoming a surrogate has been one of the most surreal experiences of my life. Why did I choose to become a surrogate? Honestly, I don’t have a good answer. One day, I [...]

Pregnancy and a Toddler

Pregnancy and a Toddler

Being pregnant and having a toddler has been…interesting (and a wonderful lesson in patience). The first trimester was absolute hell. No amount of Zofran could force me to leave the house for those first 12 weeks, which was very hard on my 1 year old E. Thankfully, we (and by that, I mean ‘she’) were [...]

My 2 BFP Stories

I love, love, love hearing about how other mamas found out they were pregnant. Since it’s very personal to some, I don’t go out of my way to ask, but I think it’s so neat to find out about how people find out they are expecting a little bundle of joy. I have two sons [...]

Kieran’s Laid-Back Polka Dot Party

I have a special place in my heart for Mary Ellen’s little guy, Kieran, because he was born the same week as my own little man.

Breastfeeding Mamas, Take Care of Yourself

Breastfeeding Mamas, Take Care of Yourself

I’ll start out by ‘outing’ myself: I’m very pro-breastfeeding. I believe breast is best, I love the idea of normalizing breastfeeding, I love educating myself on all things breastfeeding and I’ll talk your ear off about it if given the chance. It’s something I’m so passionate about. All things considered, I’ve had a relatively easy breastfeeding [...]
