37 weeks and 4 days pregnant and my nose is growing bigger

Posted by on Sunday, January 26, 2014, In : pregnancy 
My husband and I decided to not take professional maternity photos for my pregnancy. It was due to a combination of forgetting, delaying and not wanting to spend money for pictures of my unattractive big belly. I figured I'd just wait for my child to be born to take family photos.

Got my Group B Strep test last week after 36 weeks

My OB/GYN said that after 35 weeks, pregnant women have to get tested for Group B Strep so I had to get another vaginal exam where they stick a stick test in there. It was quick and painless. It's not like a cervical exam where they stick their fingers in there.

Bought a flight and then flights are cheaper the next month?

Posted by on Saturday, May 11, 2013,
Have you ever booked a flight 5 months ahead of time for your trip and then it goes down a month later? Is 5 months too early to buy a flight for a good deal? I am trying to find a flight to Washington DC for October but prices are kind of high right now. I wonder if it'll go down in a couple of weeks or months?
