Hello Third Trimester

Hello Third Trimester

I hear every pregnant woman say the same thing around this time (and there are a lot of us out there right now!). The time seems to have flown by! I am now 30 weeks in, and boy, knowing that we only have (more or less) 10 more weeks left to go… shit just got real.

Lesbians Get Pregnant: Part Two

Lesbians Get Pregnant: Part Two

For real this time… I am well into my second trimester, and so far everything seems to be going smoothly.

Included in this installment:

Life in the First Trimester: my experiences, the first ultrasound video, symptoms, a funny story about my super-human olfactory sense, a video clip referencing my emotional state (you may recognize it).

Life in the Second Trimester: more things I have experienced thus far, second ultrasound photo, and a bathroom belly selfie.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: grateful moments, and a list of pet peeves that I’m pretty sure most pregnant women deal with regularly.

On a Lighter Note: a video of a really cool trick my cousin showed me. I can’t stop doing it now.

International Women’s Day was yesterday.

There are a massive amount of hashtags floating round the subject too: #beboldforchange #iwd2017 #SheInspiresMe #InternationalWomensDay #ADayWithoutAWoman #fundhercause

The list goes on.

I’m posting this now because I think awareness should go on for more than just 1 day.

And I think we all know why the big push for equality now – it looks like an orange asshole.

Where Do Married Lesbians Go On Dates?

Where Do Married Lesbians Go On Dates?

IKEA, of course.

Whenever Lucien and I are around an IKEA, we just have to have our token date of walking the labyrinth, then finishing it off with a hot dog and frozen yogurt. Before we left Vancouver to come back to Alberta, we went for a walk in dream land.

These are some of the things we added to our wish list for our someday home. One that doesn’t have wheels.

Lesbians Get Pregnant: Part One

WARNING: If you find conversations about the reproductive system of women’s bodies uncomfortable, this will likely fall under the TMI category for you. The following post reveals some pretty personal information.

Lucien and I have finally started actively trying to have a baby. For a lesbian couple, there is a bit more to it than creating a miracle in an act of passion with the one you love. It is far more clinical and we have received a number of questions from our friends and colleagues about the process.

So here it is.

How to: Get Black Grease Out of Clothing with 3 Things You Probably Already Have

There are few things, for me, that make feeling miserable not so… miserable.

  • Cat cuddled and purring on lap: check, wait… no check. Ok, check again… and… nevermind.
  • Big comfy sweater, sweat pants, and warm socks: check, check, check
  • Decaf Earl Grey Tea in favorite mug: check and check
  • Kleenex: check
  • Reading list: check
