I'm planning to do these eleven things the next time I'm pregnant to help make my second pregnancy easier than the first.
If you're pregnant or have been pregnant, then you know that one of the last big baby-prep agenda items is getting your bag packed for the hospital. If you're a first-time parent, you may be unsure as to what you'll actually need and what you should leave at home.

While nothing truly "cured" the feeling of constant nausea or daily puking sessions for me during those first 13 weeks, there were a handful of remedies that made the experience slightly more bearable. Should my husband and I choose to have another baby, you can be sure that the first step in my pregnancy journey will be stockpiling these supplies so that I'm prepared for impending storm.
With August coming to a close, it feels like the unofficial end of summer. In this post I'm sharing some thoughts as we get ready to transition to a new season and - for our family - a very memorable autumn.
