“But… what if?” I’ve asked myself that question a few hundred times over the past pandemic year. We could quarantine for two weeks, get tested, and then visit grandparents! But... what if we pick up COVID on our road trip and...
Why do I look like I am four months pregnant when I gave birth over a year ago? Why does it look like a football is coming out of my belly when I do crunches? Is it diastasis recti? And what...
In September, model and author Chrissy Teigen suffered a miscarriage during the pregnancy of her third child with husband John Legend. Teigen was upfront about the complications she suffered, having been placed on bedrest and then hospitalized for bleeding....
My husband and I have always known we want three children. I am one of two, and my husband is one of four. I knew I wanted more than two; my husband thought four was a lot. We settled...
I never anticipated it. I had a relatively easy-going, healthy pregnancy. Some nausea in the beginning, but I wasn’t violently throwing up. I had fatigue in the first trimester and the third, but again, nothing out of the ordinary....
You are my sunshine, My only sunshine. We were sure we couldn’t get pregnant naturally and were making moves to start IVF. But then, my baby girl, you surprised us all. You have been my sunshine since the very beginning. Now,...
I grew up in the nineties, so I am going to quote The Cranberries here: "In your head, in your head, they are cryin'. In your head, in your head Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie. What's in your head? In your head,...
When I had my first baby, I lived on the opposite side of the country from my family. What had once felt like an awesome adventure on the West Coast became an insane initiation to motherhood. It seemed I...
There are some moments in life that make me hold my baby longer and tighter than usual. A news story about a tragedy. A commercial about a cause. You know those moments. That story that makes your heart ache...

Let's talk periods for just a minute... If you don't have one or don't want to read, feel free to scroll on by. I know it's a bit of a taboo subject, but maybe you, like me, have some questions...
Putting together a baby registry for friends and family to know your "must haves" is overwhelming, to say the least. You’re preparing to be a first-time mom, but you have no clue what you’ll actually need or what you’re doing. Here are a few “must have” items we skipped out on.
Becoming a new mom is hard on any given day. But to the mama who has delivered a brand new baby during the time of coronavirus, I’m thinking about you a lot lately.  When you found out you were pregnant...
We have spent the last eight years building our family. It’s been a lot of pregnancies, nursing, sleepless nights, and joyful chaos. This pregnancy is likely to be our last, and as I reflect during the last five weeks of it I can’t help but see some big differences between the first and last! 
We all have some version of a 10K in our lives. We all have a challenge ahead of us that we can use to break through the maternal wall. And we can shatter all the ideas out there that limit us as women who happen to also be moms. I hope my story will inspire you to find out what your 10K is and decide that you will get through it and come out stronger than when you started. I know you can.
