34 weeks…  what’s a dad to do?

34 weeks… what’s a dad to do?

Father’s Day was this past Sunday.  My first inclination was to write a post about how my husband must feel, 6 weeks away from becoming a dad for the first time, but then I decided it would be even better to read it straight from him!  So, after a long day of work and a … Continue reading

33 weeks…  The problem with being a princess.

33 weeks… The problem with being a princess.

Poor Ol’ Kate. Despite my moaning and complaining last week, I have to admit:  there Would be something worse than having people comment, criticize and speculate upon your body every day throughout your pregnancy – and that would be having people comment, criticize and speculate every day when you’re not even expecting (as far as … Continue reading

32 weeks… Shakedown Breakdown.

32 weeks… Shakedown Breakdown.

“Ever wonder what your baby is doing in there these days? She’s busy blinking, looking around, grabbing things, making faces, practicing his breathing, peeing and listening to everything around her—pretty much exactly what she’ll be doing for the first three months of her life, sans the adoring audience and the flashing camera.” -from 3D Pregnancy … Continue reading

31 weeks…  Beach Baby, Breech Baby Give Me Your Hand.

31 weeks… Beach Baby, Breech Baby Give Me Your Hand.

You know how the ol’ saying goes, “be careful what you wish for…  ” Last week, I finished off the post with a semi-mournful reflection upon the idea that I just didn’t feel, well, much of anything; so, apparently my daughter-to-be has inherited her father’s penchant for literal-based humour – she has spent the entire week leaving … Continue reading

30 weeks…  preparing to let go.

30 weeks… preparing to let go.

It’s the final countdown.  When people say “how much further to go?“, we now answer with the more-than-a-little-trepadacious “8-10 weeks“.  We spent the Monday afternoon of our long-weekend actually In More Than One Baby Store, debating the benefits and challenges of the buddha vs. the moby vs. the balboa and very nearly (very nearly!) buying a … Continue reading

29 weeks…  Happy Mother’s Day!

29 weeks… Happy Mother’s Day!

This picture was taken the day before I packed up my car and moved to the other end of the continent – for the second time in my life.  I remember telling my mum to “think of it like 24 weeks“, 2 semesters at grad school in Vancouver, then I’d be back home. 4 years, … Continue reading

28 weeks later…

28 weeks later…

Okay, okay…  it’s not exactly a post-apocolyptic horror.  Actually, being at 28 weeks is kind of amazing!  This past week, more often than not, when people have said “how much longer“, the response to my “10-12 weeks, assuming she goes full term” has been met with hearty “wow, you look great!”s, as opposed to the “oh…  are … Continue reading

27 weeks…  she wanted to wear WHAT during labour?

27 weeks… she wanted to wear WHAT during labour?

Well, looks like Jessica Simpson finally delivered a healthy baby girl. I’m not going to lie, there were a few of us making jokes about how she must have the gestation period of a grey whale. Didn’t it seem like she was pregnant forever?  She posted this picture on Halloween last year, announcing her impending mummy-hood. … Continue reading

26 weeks…  “you must be about ready to pop”

26 weeks… “you must be about ready to pop”

No…  No i’m  not.  But Thanks.  This is actually the last full week of the second trimester, which feels a bit surreal.  I was having a fun chat with a coworker today (who has been through two babies of his own.  Well, his wife has, anyways.) He very kindly emphasized the difference between “pregnant” and … Continue reading
