Demonstration – Bellywrapping: Sweetheart finish.

Bellywrapping during pregnancy is something that has helped me tremendously in coping with pelvic pressure, lower back pain, and abdominal pains. Though different than belly binding, belly wrapping can be done in a number of ways from functional to stylish. For this pregnancy I began wrapping the baby bump at approximately 24 weeks, much earlier… Continue reading Demonstration – Bellywrapping: Sweetheart finish.

Baby on Board

We announced our second little one in early March. I used a program called RPG maker to create a 'game'' that revealed our good news at the end of a scripted sequence.

The 'game' was still quite long and I did as much editing as I thought I could get away with, but still it was a bit longer than I would have liked.

I still have trouble understanding that she's gone and late… Continue reading My Texas Life is Changing

Gestational Diabetes: Tears and Tenacity

It was something I'd never heard of, a glucose test. Sounded easy enough. I had asked my doctor to test my glucose a couple of years before (I had gained a bunch of weight really quickly and it wasn't shedding despite hard work at the gym) and everything came back normal. I figured I would… Continue reading Gestational Diabetes: Tears and Tenacity
