I just found out that a good friend of mine is pregnant, and decided to make this blog a little more useful to someone like her looking for pregnancy stories, advice, and photos! Here are the MamaWit posts from my pregnancy with Tigger:
Week-by-Week in First Trimester
10 weeks pregnant – introduction to MamaWit + photo
Week 11 – cravings & aversions, end of morning sickness, photo
Week 12 – picture & how I was feeling
Week 13 – on spicy food and the end of morning sickness; with photo
Week 14 – food cravings & exhaustion
First Trimester – collection of photos
Month-by-Month (I got too tired to post weekly!) in Second Trimester
Month 4 – weeks 16-19 (on maternity clothes, ultrasound, sleep trouble, baby room furniture, baby’s first kick, hunger, weight gain)
Month 5 – weeks 20-23 (on baby movements & growth spurts, plus more Mama weight gain!)
Month 6 – weeks 24-27 (flying back to the U.S., baby’s hiccups, and I’m definitely showing now!)
Second Trimester – collection of photos
Month 7 – weeks 28-31 (met the midwife in person, seeing family, babymoon, first baby shower)
Month 9 – weeks 35-39 (was too tired to write, later posted photos including the day I went into labor!)

Also, if you look at the top of any page on MamaWit, you see that there’s a new link to a page called “Pregnancy“. I’m using it to compile all the resources (books, online articles, my favorite baby development newsletter, and more) I loved during my pregnancy. You can comment there with more links you think I should read and add, too.
Let me know if there are other pregnancy or birth-related posts you’d like me to get up on this site and I’ll do my best!
