Welp, As I Mentioned: I Had A Baby. Note: Some pregnancy/birth/surgery/baby-related triggers here for some. Not a birth story, really. On the internet you can read a lot of birth stories. Today I read one that sounded almost exactly like mine, except with more bleeding and trauma! This was less comforting than I thought it would be. There … More The house blend of cognitive dissonance
Like many bloggers, I pre-write and schedule a lot of my posts in advance, because apparently having a rigorous, sometimes-enforced schedule is the only way I can get my ass in gear. It also helps me take advantage of any writing bursts I might have. It’s not very helpful when real life supersedes whatever I’ve blogged … More [UPDATED/EDITED] In Dreams
State of the Pred We’re over a week or two in and so far the prednisone has not made me more crazy. I count it as a win. Therefore, Happy Christmas Eve to those of you who celebrate it! I plan on celebrating with A., our pup, my giant belly, and friends. Maybe I’ll make … More So far, so…whatever?
For beautiful baby bums, although I cannot imagine this will stay beautiful for long. Oh well, it’s nice and bright, isn’t it? Upscale cloth diaper gift from a relative. South Dakota, Winter 2014.
Yep. It’s Devil Pred time. :( We saw the fetal specialist last week. After our (fifth! Good god!) ultrasound, during which we learned that the babe’s fluid is still doing great. We also saw more hair. We also learned that the baby is currently transverse breech — he’s lying sideways, the ding-dong. While the docs think … More The Devil is in the House
Now that we’re having a kid, I rarely get asked about writing, except by friends. It’s awesome when they do, though — it makes me feel like I am still a separate person from the baby.* *Yes, this is ridiculous for multiple reasons. First one being, I’m NOT physically separate from the baby, a ha … More So, how’s that writing going?
After over a decade of living with ulcerative colitis and eating to placate it, I have come to the final conclusion that spinach and I can never ever be friends again. Yes, it may be a “legal” food according to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Yes, it is fantastically good for you. In particular I’ve bought and cooked … More No spinach for you?
So stuff is going well, I guess. We found out at a previous appointment that my fluid levels are low normal, so I’ve been drinking water like clockwork. Seems to be helping (or rather, it seems I was probably dehydrated at my last ultrasound, since our bodies can’t really MAKE more fluid, apparently), and the … More Fire/update everything
Baby gift from the grandparents. Winter 2014. (Found here, they also have a dragon version)
I have learned that my website SEO is severely lacking. Ahem. In other news, here’s how my third trimester is going so far: — Heartburn. Heeeaaarrrrrtburn. Tums, you are my best friend. — Every time I burp, I feel dangerously close to upchucking. Only a little bit, though, in my mouth. Yum! I think it’s … More Excuse me. But you don’t know what you’re talking about.
