This may seem like a Sunday post, but it's actually a Friday post.

26. October 2014

*I had the best intentions to write a post on Friday, but then we had a fun family day and I never got the chance to write/publish. SO, I'm writing a belated Friday post on Sunday! Better late than never, right?*

This past week was a good one. Clara and I started a new mom/baby workout class, we got together with some women and their babies (all around Clara's age) from our New Moms Group, we went to our moms' church group, and we had a good sleep week... it was super-busy, actually! The entire week flew by. It helps that I'm feeling better and better about being out and about with Clara. I think the more I go out, the easier it becomes! It's never a quick process, but it's always worth it. I absolutely can't stand sitting in our house all day, so I'm glad we've found activities to keep ourselves occupied (and sane)!

In summary...

Someone is getting ready for her first Halloween! I like to think she's more excited than she looks.


(This Week) I've Learned:

  • Silicon Valley monopolies are costing us more than I ever thought about. (here)
  • There is a big difference between facts and stories - especially when it comes to America's handling of Ebola. (here

Pregnant ladies: Avoid the message boards!

23. October 2014

The title of this post pretty much says it all, but I'll explain a bit more.

Every once in a while (all of the time) I think back to when I was pregnant (oh how I miss those days!) and feel the need to yell a piece of advice to the entire pregnant population, so the currently-pregnant women out there don't make the same mistake(s) I did.

I'm just throwing in a picture of the pregnant version of me because I really miss that belly o' mine!

The one piece of advice that I want to give all pregnant women tonight is to avoid those darn internet message boards.

You know the ones I'm talking about?

As soon as I got pregnant, I sought out other pregnant women. I mean, it's difficult in the early days of pregnancy because so many things are going on (both physically and mentally) and I chose not to tell anyone I was knocked up, so I had no one to ask my questions to! Of course, I turned to the internet and ended up on Baby Center and before I knew it, I was signed up as a member to the July 2014 message board, for all the moms who were expecting their little ones in July.

Sounds like a great thing, right? Women sharing stories and questions and being supportive of one another... 

Yeah okay, that does sound great, but that's most likely not what you're going to get out of a message board comprised of thousands of hormonal ladies.

Of course, I got sucked into the message boards before I could stop myself, so I can tell you with great certainty that you do not want to waste your time with them. This is what I got out of it (I'll just tell you the main points so you don't need to waste hours and hours of your days perusing these topics):

  • If the pregnancy test says you're pregnant, you're pregnant. The first few weeks it seems like everyone posts pictures of their pregnancy tests asking whether they're positive. Even a faint line means it's positive and you're knocked up! It really isn't that hard, but evidently women want lots of different opinions about such things!
  • Everyone is groping themselves throughout the entire first trimester to make sure their boobs are still hurting, as a way to reassure themselves that they're still pregnant, so you're not crazy if you're doing it, too. Actually, I can sum up the entire first trimester of posts by saying that everyone is trying to convince themselves they're still pregnant and if you haven't miscarried, you're probably still pregnant and there's no way to tell for sure until you get an(other) ultrasound.
  • Women will judge each other for absolutely everything and anything. I'm not sure why women can't seem to support each other, but it doesn't matter what the topic, women will get mad at each other over it through anonymous message boards.
  • Speaking of which, there are some posts that are sure to cause controversy, these topics include but are not limited to: push presents, baby showers, circumcision, vaccinations, abusive baby daddy's that women are debating getting back together with, adoption, home births & natural births, what you can and should(n't) eat, inducing labor, everything about labor, basically absolutely any topic you can think of...
  • You shouldn't get in a fist fight while pregnant. And if you do, you shouldn't tell an entire message board because people will say mean things about you. (No, of course I'm not talking about myself, but a few soon-to-be-mamas on my message boards kept finding themselves in fist fights.)
  • Pregnancies (unfortunately) do not all end with happy and healthy babies, which is heartbreaking to read about, and can also make a person really anxious. While I 100% believe that it's important for moms who are going through a loss to find a group of women going through something similar to grieve and share stories with, it did make me super-paranoid when I was hearing about miscarriage after miscarriage for the first 20 weeks, and then a lot of stillbirths throughout the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. I'm not saying these aren't stories worth hearing and I felt great pain for the ladies affected, but I also felt like a disproportionate number of women were suffering from devastating losses or complicated pregnancies, because those were the ladies who were posting to the board. It makes sense because women with 'normal' pregnancies don't have as much to post about. The point is, I was more paranoid than I needed to be, which gave me a bit of extra-anxiety that I didn't need.
  • You should really just call your doctor. There are not moderators or admins on the message boards who are doctors or who are trained to answer medical questions, but that doesn't stop women from asking them! If you're bleeding, call your doctor. If you have a lot of pain, call your doctor. If you're in the late 2nd or 3rd trimesters and haven't felt the baby move in a while, call your doctor. If you have any question at all, instead of consulting a bunch of anonymous women on the internet, you should probably call your doctor!
  • Almost everything can be considered 'normal'. If you're experiencing it, chances are someone else is, too.
  • Pregnancy sucks and everyone claims they're never going to do it again ever. The one thing that it seems every woman can agree on is that pregnancy sucks and there are a bijillion unpleasant symptoms. However, this wasn't my experience at all! I loved pregnancy and didn't suffer from many of the symptoms that other women seemed to experience. It seemed like every woman in the group was hoping to go into labor early so they didn't have to be pregnant one more day, while I was loving every second of it until the very end. 

So I'm sure you're wondering why I was a part of this group that I clearly didn't get much out of. Well, you know those people on social media who are dramatic/'crazy' so you follow them just to see what they'll say next? (Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this... it's not something I'm proud of!) Well, the same logic applies here.

I mean, people say some absurd things and then other women get offended and it turns into a giant yelling match online with hundreds of posts and darnit, I was entertained. I never once posted on this board, but I did enjoy reading the posts of others. However, the next time I get pregnant (God willing) I will not allow myself to waste one second on these boards. It's like watching a marathon of a super crappy reality TV show, once you get sucked in, it's hard to look away. 

Trust me on this one, spend some money on buying some good pregnancy books, call a friend, call a doctor, talk to someone... but don't consult strangers on the internet! 

That's enough unsolicted advice for one day...

* Maybe one of these days I'll have a post without bullet points! Although, tomorrow will not be that day.

100 days of motherhood - what I'm thinking.

22. October 2014

Tomorrow is Thursday! 

(Confession: I just wrote 'Tomorrow is almost Thursday' and then I realized that tomorrow is actually Thursday and that makes the week seem like it's going even faster! Did that make sense to anyone other than me or is the sleep deprivation talking?! Also, I'm writing this at 11pm so I'm really cutting it close here...)

I've been a mom for over 100 days now. Not that I'm counting, but I do have a counter going and it says I've been a mom for 101 days. I seriously can't believe it.

I'm not 'grown-up enough' to have a kid, right?! How did I even get to this point?! Sometimes I honestly feel like my life has been going by in a blink of an eye. 

People say time goes by faster when you have kids, and I know I'm no expert, but this seems to be 100% the case.

Now, onto the point of this post (there is a point, I think).

I wanted to share some of my current 'mom' thoughts.

//  A whining child is not my favorite alarm clock, but it's my alarm clock every day. I seriously never, ever set my (phone) actual alarm clock anymore.

//  Even when Clara cries, I ALWAYS try to smile at her, especially with my eyes. I don't want her to feel for even a second that she frustrates me. I know that she's a baby and is just trying to communicate. When she's smart enough to willfully irritate me, it will be a different story!

//  Clara wakes up around 6-7am and goes to bed around 8pm - that's a 14 hour day with her and that feels LONG.

//  Clara also wakes up around 2am and 5am to eat at night, so the maximum amount of sleep I get at once is about 4 hours. I used to get 6.5 (of sleep) hours straight when she was a newborn, but somehow the earlier bedtime has set her back a bit.

//  I love her more and more each and every day, which means the day of her birth was the day I loved her LEAST, and I still loved her a ton. It's really an amazing thing.

//  When Clara smiles and laughs at me, I honestly believe that nothing else in the world matters at that moment.

//  I've been feeling more empowered as a mom lately. Clara and I leave the house to meet up with friends and go on walks and run errands, and I'm really enjoying it. We also go to moms groups and workout classes and a mom church group... we're busy ladies!

//  Clara has been rolling from her back to her stomach, but she hates being on her stomach so then she cries and I have to roll her back over... It's kind of amazing and also a bit frustrating. 

//  But just today she rolled from her stomach to her back, so she might be on the verge of becoming a little more self-reliant in this small way.

//  Clara was born with enough hair to put a bow in, and it's the thing we get comments on ALL OF THE TIME. Everyone is obsessed with how much hair she has. 

//  We're finally on a 'routine' in which Clara eats and sleeps every 2 or so hours. Her naps and feedings are about 30 minutes long (well, sometimes she only eats for 10 min) and so our day is pretty packed even if we stay at home. 

//  Being a stay at home mom is HARD. I'll talk write more about this later.

//  We're moving into our 6 month size clothing. This makes me want to cry and it also is making her closest very crowded, since I refuse to pack up the 0-3 month clothes until I absolutely cannot button them anymore.

//  I really don't know what's happened to my squishy newborn, I see newborns now and honestly don't remember Clara ever being that small, even when I look back at pictures of her from just 2 months ago. 

It's amazing how many mom/baby related things I think about every day. Motherhood has brought so many changes to my body and mind and life. I've grown a lot (as a mother) in the past 100 days. I used to be afraid to leave the house because I was afraid she'd wake up and cry... now I'm totally comfortable with my abilities to soothe her wherever we are. I've never been a big believer in trying to get Clara on a schedule, but she's fallen into a schedule that works for us, with no extra effort on our part. I feel like Tim and I are more calm (as parents) than I ever thought we'd be, and I really, truly enjoy being a mom to this little girl. She's a true joy and is quite the happy little addition to our family.
