Frogette’s Birth Story

Warning: discussion of womanly birthin’ stuff which some may find unappealing.  Don’t read if you can’t deal or otherwise prefer not to deal.  Additionally, this ended up being one zillion words long because as a birthing enthusiast, I just have to tell the story in excruciating detail.  I know fellow enthusiasts will appreciate it, but… Continue reading Frogette’s Birth Story

There Will Be Blood: Frogson’s Birth Story (Part 5… The End!)

Part Four Part Three Part Two Part One ———– WTF.  It had taken me two days to get from zero to 4.5, and one hour to get from 4.5 to 10?! (The monkeys were on to something after all.)

There Will Be Blood: Frogson’s Birth Story (Part 1)

First, some mathematical background… I always kind of had two due dates (like a boss).  My doctors in DC had me at January 10 per the first frog-trasound; the authorities in PA follow the standard cycle math and reassigned me to January 6. With that in mind I will mention one odd tidbit that may or may not have anything to do… Continue reading There Will Be Blood: Frogson’s Birth Story (Part 1)
