Hooray For Body Pillows!

August 18, 2008 3 comments

So I just got back from a super long walk and, man, am I wiped!  James keeps saying we should go for more walks, and yeah, I know exercise is good for pregnant women, but I’m thinking four miles was a little much.

On the bright side, I did make out with a pretty comfy body pillow from Bed Bath & Beyond, which is going to make sleeping on my side much easier.  My regular-sized pillows just haven’t been cutting it lately.

In other news, today marks my 19th week, and apparently Baby Lump should be about 10 inches long now.  A little strange considering he/she was only supposed to be six inches last week, but apparently this week is when they start measuring babies with their legs included (before this week, they were only measured from crown-to-rump) – interesting!

Enjoy this funny, three-headed baby cartoon from Baby Gaga until my next post.

On a Hot Pursuit to Find My “Due Date Buddy”

August 8, 2008 1 comment

I’m not gonna lie, it’s a little tough being preggers when most of my friends aren’t even so much as thinking about babies.  I’m at an age where my peers are most concerned with adjusting to post-college life; they’re struggling with questions about careers, not childcare.  And while my friends have been nothing but supportive (I already have a pretty impressive army of extremely anxious babysitters), it’s understandable that it’s difficult for them to relate.

Here’s where the Internet comes in!  I’m so lucky to have grown up as a “digital native” and have access to so many wonderful online resources.  I always knew there was a social network out there for practically anyone, so it was no surprise when I discovered Baby-Gaga, an online community for expectant and current parents.

The best thing about Baby-Gaga is the overwhelming number of young, soon-to-be mothers like me who populate it.  Most are in their early- to mid-twenties, with many even in their teens.  For me, it’s been evolving into an excellent support system.  I can search for mothers by due date, age, location, and members often share advice, sonograms and general pre-motherhood concerns.

Currently, I’m on a hot pursuit to find the perfect “due date buddy.” Wish me luck!
