Mommys Unite

I am slowly approaching the end of my pregnancy. I can't believe that I have 10 weeks till my due date. Time is flying by, leaving me feeling a bit unprepared. As a first time Mom, I can only read so many books before I start getting dizzy. And of course, every one is an expert, yet it's hard to find someone that agrees 100% with someone else. It can be a bit overwhelming at times.

So I'm turning to you ladies for help, advice or a simple heads up. I'd like to ask you to send me your Mommy wisdom, your "I wish I knew this" and your "don't wast your money on this" pieces of advice. Simply, something that would have been nice to know before you found yourself ankle deep in diapers, covered in spit up with a crying newborn you can't soothe.

I give you the chance to be as honest and REAL as you'd like. I can't be scared. Swear. Send me the juicy info by email: and I will share your words of wisdom in a post next week. I can credit you with sharing your knowledge with a link to your blog. Not only will you be helping me but your blog will get a little publicity at the same time. 

Thank you!


  1. I think this is a good idea for a blog post! I will have to jot down some shit and send it to you.

  2. I'll send you something too though I'm still definitely learning as I go.

    1. Shannon, feel free to write about anything you'd like but I'm really interested in how you breastfeed so successfully. I am terrified of it and want to give it a shot!

  3. I agree with Shannon, I'm still learning but I'll send you a little something as well!

  4. Great idea! I'll see what I can come up with and send your way. :)

  5. I'm not a mama so I can't really contribute - but I have to say, i was pretty shocked when I found out that the ladies generally poop on the deliver table while pushing. NO ONE TALKS ABOUT THAT. Ahem. Sorry.

  6. I love this idea! I'm not a mommy yet, but I would love to read the answers you get. We're going to start a family here in the next year or two and while it's exciting, it's also terrifying. I figure you need to know everything you can! Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better. I'm excited to follow along!

    new follower :)

  7. Hmm, I am not sure what to tell you?? Other than breastfeeding, what are your concerns??

    And to Deidre, you are so funny. I was SO worried about that. But luckily it didn't happen to me (I asked).
