Being pregnant: divine

Having a stranger approach me on the street to congratulate me: wonderful

The expression on their face when I ask, “what the hell are you talking about?”: priceless

Does having a baby = divorce?

My dear friend (who is happily married with two kids) sent me this sage advice:

To: Me

Do NOT file for divorce during the baby's first year, even if you want to badly. It will pass. I'm actually serious about this.


And shortly after that email I received this from another friend:

Eek! Should I schedule my appearance now for Ricki Lake's "Becoming a baby mamma ruined my marriage!"?

The secret to a fast and easy labor

I was told not once, not twice, but three times to drink raspberry leaf tea while pregnant. Since pregnant women aren't meant to drink most teas I assumed this was only suggested as an alternative.

No sir! I found out drinking raspberry leaf tea strengthens and tones my uterus (work it girl!) for a fast and easy labor. What??? Say it again... a fast and easy labor.

Since I will be going au naturale during childbirth, I'll take whatever I can to make it speedy! And since I can't OD on the stuff (I checked) I'm sucking it down like the fat kid gulped down the chocolate river in Willy Wonka.
