Season 9 of The Big Bang Theory is NOT for Preggos

This should go without saying, but if you haven't watched the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory, this article contains spoilers. Read at your own risk. But, seriously, you should've been able to figure that out from the title.   The Big Bang Theory has been one of my favorite shows since it first aired. Dr. [...]

Porsha Picks Her Baby (RHOA)

After the AMAs last night, I started catching up on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Wow. The new chicks.... just... wow. Kenya is clearly cray cray, and there isn't much to be said about her that hasn't been said already. But Porsha? Oh wow... This girl is a perky little something. The whole time she [...]

And This Is Why Old Wives’ Tales Are Stupid

Every pregnant woman has experienced it. Before you find out your baby's gender (or before you give birth if you opt, as I did, to not find out your baby's gender), nearly every person with whom you have contact will try to guess whether you're having a boy or a girl. Some people just go [...]

Pop Culture Baby’s Birth Story

Pop Culture Baby’s Birth Story

Although I feel like the phrase "birth story" should serve as a warning that there's some serious TMI ahead [after all, is birth ever really pretty? No. It's pretty much always a little bit gross], I'm going to do the standard warning anyway.

If you're not into knowing that much about someone else's bodily functions or the details of contractions, effacement, and all that jazz, I'd suggest you skip this post altogether or just go straight to the pictures. It's gonna be long, y'all... and maybe a wee bit gory.

I Get By With a Little Love From My Friends

(Wow, for someone who claims to not be all gung ho on The Beatles, I sure have been taking liberties with their songs lately...)Instead of continuing to rely on all of Brittney's fantastic posts about my baby sprinkle [If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to the PCM Facebook fan page], I decided [...]

Intelligender Provokes Not-so-Intelligent Ire

Like any pregnant woman, even one who has no plans of confirming via ultrasound what gender my fetus actually is, I love entertaining myself with the old wives' tales. I did the Chinese Gender Prediction chart -- got both results, depending on which website was used. I did various online tests, which analyzed whether I [...]

Managing Gestational Diabetes: Day One

Those of you who know me or who can decipher my cryptic Tweets already know this, but to catch up the rest of you: I failed my three-hour glucose tolerance test.This actually wasn't a surprise. My mom and at least two (of her six) sisters are diabetic. After my well-woman exam a year or so [...]
