Babies Have Guess Dates

One more I have to share --- reminding myself. :)

Post by Marsupial Mommy.

Everything is a Symptom

My Baby Bump Shadow on the bathroom wall - Nov 12, 2013
At now one day over my "due date" everything is a symptom of early labor. :)

Think I am kidding?

Google: "runny nose and 40 weeks pregnant" or "sore throat and 40 weeks pregnant" - and you will see what  I mean.

Not convinced?

Try "heartburn and 40 weeks pregnant" or "hot flashes and 40 weeks pregnant".

Any day now! But trying to be patient this time around! I wasn't last time - walked and walked and walked, spicy foods, pineapple, anything I tried it - except like castor oil - did not and will not try that.

But ended up with a high tear and had to be induced three days after my due date....hadn't even had a contraction before the pitocin. Which kinda scares me because I don't really know what a real contraction feels like that isn't medically induced.

Was at the hospital last Sunday (long story - but just stress and nothing I could control myself stress-wise) - and was all hooked up and the doctor said I was having contractions which I could kinda feel but they were nothing compared to what I have felt a few times and NOTHING like what the pitocin contractions are like.

Anywho, this is my mantra focus.

VoxBox Love

I want to post how much I truly appreciate being a part of the Mama Vox Box program! As a mom it is hard to keep up with new products that might make my life easier or that I would love. A store run means milk, eggs and bread - and usually I forget at least one of those things - so looking at new things to try?? Ha!

So a box full of the latest goodies for me to test and try out and share with my friends is just AWESOME. There hasn't been an item that I haven't fallen for actually.

Here is my 3 year old testing out the latest BB Cream by Pond's. I love this stuff - and she does too - lol! Received two different shades in the box - a light and a medium tone and I use both! Light first to conceal my dark circles (hello, tired mom) and then the medium over that. Blends nicely and is just a smooth cream - love it! Has taken over as my favorite when I had been using the same old concealer for YEARS. What can I say - too easy to get stuck in your ways. But glad to have the opportunity to try a new one - because it is great!
