This pregnancy thing is FAR from over!

Hello epiphany! So I was looking at my incredibly morphed body in the mirror and realized, I may be delivering in less than 48 hours but I'm surely far from being free of pregnancy issues. This realization brought on part 2 of my great epiphany... You all are stuck with me ranting on this site for a few more weeks, at least! I mean look at the picture I decided to post of me... The effects of my Pregnancy are not going to be over for a while.  (I didn't even hesitate to post this pic, because it looks nothing like me! I have a moon pie face with a huge beach ball under my shirt. The sunglasses are the only thing I better have on my body from this picture 6+ months postpartum!)   

 My husband and I will still be blogging daily on www.firsttimemomanddad.com and then I'll stay on here carrying on about my flabby butt, belly, hormones, postpartum issues and anything else that deserves mentioning. I mean I have heard horror stories about my hair falling out, skin sagging, more acne, of course postpartum depression, more weight gain, intense breast feeding, all kinds of stuff!  We all know how much I love to bitch so it should come as no surprise I am going to keep it up!

I don't want to blur the line of the new site with me bitching about post pregnancy issues. The new blog is all about the wonders of parenthood, not postpartum me-hood. This has always been the place for pregnancy and pregnancy related issues. Therefore I plan to keep this blog going until I feel 100% free of my postpartum-ness...

God help us all if I get knocked up before that happens!

Side note: I am starting to freak out about delivery.  It's not so much the csection, as it is the becoming a mom that's scary. I'm going to post all about it tomorrow.  I feel an "Observations of a crazy lady about to deliver"  coming on...

  1. I think I have the opposite problem. No freak-out whatsoever about being a mom, but boy am I nervous about the delivery. Actually, not even the delivery, but the ability to have a natural one (vs. a section or an induced one). Looking forward to your crazy lady rant! :)

      oh and P.S. I know it's so easy for me to say no worries mate... but we both know, until it's over it's worries galore!

  2. Just saw a story this morning about a woman in Iowa last week gave birth to a 14 lb boy without surgery or an epidural. Her labor was only 6 hours long, and she only pushed for 6 minutes. She has another toddler son who was born at over 12 lbs.

  4. I just want to wish you luck! Don't know if I'll get to comment again before your big date. I've absolutely loved your blog and can't wait to continue reading. Hope everything goes well with the arrival of the little guy (and can't wait to find out his name). On a side note... I took pictures of myself last night... at 38 weeks +4 I have a moonpie face too :( I told my husband no more pictures until after I've lost some of this baby weight!! You are going to be an amazing mother! Take care of yourself in these last few hours.
