Surviving Long Flights

How I Survived a 6 Hour Flight While 8 Months Pregnant

I flew from Toronto to Los Angeles when I was about 7 months pregnant and I did absolutely nothing to prepare for it. I wore tight shoes, uncomfortable jeans and had nothing in the way of snacks.

Bun in the literal oven (and other pregnancy/postpartum surprises)

When I read this post from Lisa Peek over at peekatparenting.com, I thought “yes!” I was so damn hot when I was pregnant – not ‘sexy’ hot more like ‘fat man back hair’ hot. Are we alone in this?

By the way, I added a link to hair tourniquets but don’t look it up. It’s when one of your hairs gets wrapped around a baby’s toe. It happens all the time but you see it and you take it off. They only publish the horror stories so don’t look.
