10 Reasons Not To Keep Your Babyâs Gender A Secret

One of the only things that I had to look forward to during both of my pregnancies was finding out the baby’s gender at the 20 week ultrasound. Seriously, it was all I lived for. To me, pregnancy was a long and often boring experience. I literally counted down the days until I could find out the gender, as it was one step closer to putting a face to the name of the passenger I was carrying in my belly. More »

10 Things Any Woman Can Look Forward To During Pregnancy

For me, pregnancy was okay. I didn’t have a bad time, but it was nothing to write home about. I personally am not a very patient person, so I was more so looking forward to the end product. I had a hard time glowing and radiating love and waiting for my baby to grow inside of me. I just wanted him to get out so that I could figure out the intimidating newborn stuff and get to know him already. Did I mention that I’m not very patient? More »

You Better Send Thank You Notes If Someone Throws You A Baby Shower

You Better Send Thank You Notes If Someone Throws You A Baby Shower

This topic may be a dead horse, but I am so ready to beat it again. (Hey-o!) The truth is that not all women are gifted the occasion of a baby shower, but most women are. If you are pregnant, someone in your social circle will probably be kind enough to open their home or rent out a community center in your honor. They will slave away night and day for weeks, cutting dry crusts off tiny cucumber sandwiches and painstakingly counting the number of jelly beans in a baby bottle in order to give out door prizes, all for you. And what are you going to do about it? More »

10 Things Pregnant Ladies Love To Hear

Pregnant ladies take a lot of crap and it’s awful because it’s during a time in life where a woman should only hear the good things. Your feet hurt, you’ve got crotch and boob sweat, you’re growing out of shirts left and right- this is a time where you need sunshine blown up your ass as much as possible, even if much if it is not true. You don’t want people asking if you are sure it’s not twins because you are so huge. You don’t want to hear from anyone that your face looks “different”. And you sure as hell don’t want to be stopped from rambling about all the fun baby stuff you have going on. More »

So Wait. Handjobs In The Delivery Room Are A Thing?

So Wait. Handjobs In The Delivery Room Are A Thing?

The standard postpartum wisdom is to wait six weeks after having a baby to attempt P-in-the-V sex. Of course, if your hormones are raging, and you’re raring to go, you can talk to your doctor about your specific circumstances. Many doctors confirm that six weeks is just a guideline to help a new mom heal and make her feel more comfortable. But I highly doubt that any doctor would condone getting it on in the delivery room—just a few hours after popping out your kid. More »

Jesus Freak: It Isnât Wrong To Masturbate

Sex is a HOT topic in the Christian community, to put it lightly. Again, my perspective doesn’t encompass all churches and all denominations, but I have “gotten around” in the Christian circle. I think it’s fair to say that many, many people in the Christian community believe sex and especially masturbation to be wrong—in a certain context, outside of marriage. More »

I did not like being pregnant at all. The kicker was, I had a great pregnancy experience without any health issues to speak of.

I was more than happy to see that nine month stretch of uncertainty go, and I do not miss it one bit. More »
