A Labor and Delivery Story (#2)

My second child was born two weeks and two days late. Since my first was 2 1/2 weeks late, I wasn’t worried when we got to two weeks after my due date. I was positive baby two would be born earlier than baby one, and she was. Labor, delivery, and post L&D was a completely different experience…

Wanting ALL the Food

You know you are getting over the “morning sickness” phase of your pregnancy when you spend all day thinking about food and being vaguely hungry. Thanks to this blog, I’ve started finding other vegan bloggers. One that I now follow mentioned being on www.findingvegan.com which I of course had to check out. Oh man! the pictures…

A Labor and Delivery Story (#1)

My first child was born two and a half weeks late. That’s right, two and a half weeks. My due date was June 5th, and on June 21st we went to the hospital to induce. Baby boy ended up being born on the June 22nd. I had wanted a completely natural birth (in a birthing center)…

Throw up and Nosebleeds

Throwing up is not fun. I try to avoid it by lying down, snacking on crackers, eating every three hours, or sipping water, but those things don’t always work. Bit of advice: don’t cough while you are tossing your cookies. You might accidentally make throw up shoot out your nose, which does not feel good….

Vegan Broccoli Chee Soup

This is one of my favorite soup recipes. One of the great things about it is that I have yet to ever mess it up. You can alter it quite a bit and it is still delicious. It rests squarely in the ‘quick and easy’ category for us, but you might find it complicated if…

Curry and Risotto

At the beginning of my second pregnancy, we tried a new risotto recipe with shiitake mushrooms. It was delicious, and we had it two or three times. By the final time, however, the sweet flavor of the white wine in the sauce and the shiitake mushrooms combined to be completely nauseating to me. We have…
