Pregnancy Self-Care

Bye Bye Bread

What is your reaction to the picture attached to this article? I can smell the fresh boule coming out of the oven, begging to be slathered with butter. I can feel its flaky crust and soft center as I begin to tear off a piece. The heat burns my fingers…


Super Mom

Every Saturday morning I meet my dad for yoga and breakfast. He’s very busy during the week, and Saturday morning has become our family time. My brother often joins us for breakfast, but first, we do yoga. We take an early morning class, to which we must arrive 15 minutes…


Baby V is Here!

Digestive Issues

Ok. Let’s talk about all those wonderful digestive issues that accompany pregnancy. The first one that plagued me was nausea. I started getting nauseous at 4 weeks. And I thought, no big deal. This isn’t bad at all. I can do this. Well, by week 6, digestive issue #2 came…
