My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

This Week's Question is:
What was your favorite maternity "could not do without" items?

Well, the first thing that pops into my mind when I think of something I could not have lived without during pregnancy was my body pillow. It really saved my back and my sleep (luckily we have a King sized bed). But of course, nothing was making me sleep good, but I still loved it. So much I couldn't part with it and just loaned it out to my best friend.

Other things I loved was my doppler - I loved to be able to listen to their little heartbeats at home whenever I wanted. Especially with Kayla (she was born in August) our pool gave me some much-needed relief.

And with Kayla's pregnancy -flip flops. They were all I could fit in with all my swelling. With Alysa, I had slip-on sneakers. The BEST!!!

I also read faithfully Your Pregnancy Week by Week and What to Expect when You're Expecting.

I SO wanted to rent a Doppler. My partner said no as I would probably spend all day listening to it! LOL

I know the shoe thing was terrible..First fitting into them and second tying them!! A doppler at home how FUN!

I second your vote on the flip-flops. My son was born in December so they really weren't weather-appropriate but I did not care in the least!

I loved the body pillow. Saved my sanity, it did.
