pregnancy & baby
I expected sleepless nights and dirty diapers. What I didn't anticipate was that the stress of being a new mom would lead me to drink ... a lot!
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden announced their engagement today and it got our office wondering. Is there still a stigma when people aren't married and have children?
The girl couldn't have been a day over 18, and by all appearances, even that was really pushing it. Seeing my dumbfounded gaze, she responded (without hesitation), "I know: I look 16, right?" I was relieved that she had said it first. This "young girl" was actually a 30-year-old married woman, five months pregnant with her first child. I was shocked and a bit jealous of her youthful looks.
I used to call my lapses in memory "pregnancy brain." Then I gave birth.
The world's first pregnant man, Thomas Beatie, is pregnant again ... with baby number three!
You know those adorable baby books that chronicle every moment of your little one's life? Well, somewhere between "first time you brushed your own teeth" and "first time you dressed yourself," I fell off the wagon.
