I have a rule about not coming upstairs to use the computer after my kids (parrot, turtles, rat, chinchilla) are asleep. I’m breaking it tonight. I should be downstairs getting ready to sleep, but instead I’m up here, having woken up my kidlets, blogging. Not very nice of me. I know. We don’t subscribe to […]

As of today we’re at 38 weeks. That’s right, only two weeks until our estimated due date. Honestly? I find it a little scary. I’m SOOOO looking forward to meeting little Jack or Lily, but us, being parents? Really? Are we old enough for that? LOL Silly, I know. I’m 30, of course I’m old […]

19 Days to Go!

Personally, I have no such feelings. Logically I’m quite aware that it’s a baby growing inside my […]

Low Hemoglobin


Found out, at my doctors appointment yesterday, that I have low hemoglobin levels. Not a good thing this close to our due date. The main risk is to me (not the baby) which is a plus – at least as far as my stress levels are concerned. For now, I’m upping my vitamin intake, which […]
