Every woman wants to be as healthy as possible during pregnancy. We give up alcohol, take up prenatal yoga, remember our vitamins, and try to get enough sleep. We also stop taking most over-the-counter medications, as well as many prescription drugs. For people with chronic health concerns, this can be an incredibly fraught decision. We’re asked to decide: Do we continue with this treatment, even if we aren’t sure what it will do to our fetuses? When I realized I was pregnant, I had to grapple with these decisions. But ultimately, I decided to stay on antidepressants during pregnancy, and I don't regret it.
Slow start today on my study journey. It's harder to get going towards the end of the week, for sure. But I'm up and studying. #eppp #thisiswhathealinglookslike #passlikeaboss #epppjourney ... See MoreSee Less
"Besides, making guesses about anatomy under a canopy of tissue paper pompoms is doing little to assuage a new mom's very real fears about motherhood, nor is it sending a great message to any of the kids running around the yard. We'd be better off showing the little girls in attendance that changing the world is every bit as much a female prerogative as bedazzling onesies. And that step one is celebrating who—not what—a child will be." ... See MoreSee Less
We did a "gender reveal" with my oldest. It was fun but if I could go back and redo it I wouldn't have one. Her anatomy has nothing to do with who she is or what she does . She loves dance, but also loves things that society reserves for male children , such as hot wheels, dinosaurs, and helping daddy fix things with tools. With our second we chose not to find out the sex because we realized it didn't matter. It was our child either way, we'd be happy and love it either way, and it had no baring on who he or she would be or what he or she would like / do.
I like this. Maybe it's because I'm "team green" but also because my son (almost 3) likes so many things. He loves dinosaurs, super heroes, and bugs, but also loves to care for a baby doll, and Tuesday asked for his nails to be painted pink (his favorite color) since mom's are pink right now. He thought that was the best thing ever. "Boy" does not define who he is.
Yes... you can't send it back!!!
Here, here!!! The world would be so nice if Blythe TwoSisters and Rowan Twosisters, in the ways of Rowan Anderson made the ways of the people (vs. rules)!
