Are we there yet?

14 January 2008 Postcards from my uterus

Wow! I can’t believe there are more than 60 comments on the “guess that birthdate” post!! What fun! But, for the record, anyone who guessed later than February 7 (when I’ll be a week overdue) or any hour that involves an overnight labour, you’re getting a lump of coal instead of a book if you […]

Delurk, and guess that birthdate!

11 January 2008 Memes

Sometimes things come together rather fortuitously on the blog. For example, although yesterday seems to have been Official Delurk Day, when we’ve done it in past years, it has been a week long event, so I don’t think I’m breaking any invioble rules by playing along today. (Thanks to Greeblemonkey for the graphic!) Since blog […]

In which she completely fails to not obsess about the onset of labour

10 January 2008 Postcards from my uterus

The nice thing about a third pregnancy is that a lot of the fear has been beaten out of you by experience. In the final stages of my pregnancy with Tristan, I worried about everything. I was already in a state of heightened anxiety because of everything related to his conception (he’s my IVF baby) […]

Counting down

7 January 2008 Postcards from my uterus

Now that the holiday season is officially packed away for another year and the boys are back in school, I am running out of distractions. Still another three-and-a-half weeks to go until my due date, which I fully expect to stretch out to an agonizing five weeks or more left in this pregnancy. And so […]

My New Year’s Resolution

1 January 2008 It IS all about me

Those of you who know me well know I don’t usually bother with resolutions. But this is one I think I can keep. I hereby resolve to divest myself of 9 to 10 lbs. Sometime in the next five or (god help me) six weeks. Happy New Year, everyone!!

A Christmas Story

22 December 2007 Postcards from my uterus

(No, not that Christmas Story, although it is among my favourites of the season.) After my ultrasound Friday morning – all things are good, placenta is out of the way, baby is up to six pound and looking fine – I went to Toys R Us for a few last-minute things. It was first thing […]

Contemplating February 1st

18 December 2007 Postcards from my uterus

I had to laugh. Remember when I talked about my obsession with Survivor and how it’s been deeply intertwined with my reproductive years? I wrote about how Simon was born on the morning of the first episode of the first Survivor All-Stars season in 2004, and what a valiant effort I made to stay up […]

Naming the Player to be Named Later

17 December 2007 Postcards from my uterus

We’ve got a little more than six and a half weeks to figure out exactly what this baby boy is called, and quite frankly, I’m stumped. It pains me, because I have a list of girls’ names as long as my arm, but I’m simply running out of good choices for boys. Not to say […]

Seven things that suck about the third trimester

13 December 2007 Postcards from my uterus

What, you thought I was going to go all this time and not whine at some point about the myriad woes of late pregnancy did you? This has been an easy pregnancy, and the second half has been generally much more pleasant than the first (nothing like getting rid of all-day nausea and abject terror […]

Five pounds and counting

9 December 2007 Postcards from my uterus

I had an ultrasound on Friday morning, and the baby is looking chubby, healthy and altogether lovely. It was the first chance this pregnancy that Beloved has had to come to an ultrasound with me. (You think we’re getting a little bit jaded about this whole pregnancy thing? I would have been scandalized had he […]
