Week 28

Week 28 is the “age of viability” when a baby is likely to survive in the event of premature labor. They even save babies born at 21 weeks nowadays I hear. It would certainly mean neonatal intensive care for awhile. I admit to looking forward to this date – it’s comforting to know she could be ok without me.

 

I’ve reached that stage where it’s hard to eat or breathe a lot. The top of my uterus, or “fundal height” is well above my belly button now and feels as if it’s taking over my entire abdominal cavity. Every doctor visit he checks this height by mashing on my belly. The city I live in is at an altitude of 6,700 feet so there isn’t much air up here to begin with. Hence, every morning on our walk through the …

Week 34

Not all pregnancy symptoms are bad. It’s pretty common to have vivid dreams during pregnancy and some are erotic. I’m talking about sex dreams with details and um… events that would make a porn star blush. While these are amusing (and rather disturbing sometimes) to analyze when you wake up, that’s not the really cool part. The bonus is when I climax in the dream I am awakened in the big middle of a REAL orgasm. Yup, you get free ones! I wake up during a great big house rockin’ wet dream – minus the mess that teenage boys experience I guess. This never happened to me until I got pregnant. I wonder if it’s just hormones and it goes away after the baby is born. Bummer.

 

Speaking of dreams, I haven’t been having those “I’m not prepared for a …

Concealed Handgun Licenses

 PLEASE NOTE: I think it is better to carry and have it if you need it that to not have a gun when you need it. Therefore, even if the only option available to you means a smaller gun, better a smaller gun than no gun. As I tell every student:

 “A 380 in the pocket is better than a 45 at the house”!

 

One of the most common issues we run into is people that are new to carrying and do not know how to carry. Knowing how to carry a gun means the difference between whether or not you actually carry it, which could mean the difference between whether or not you make it home alive today. Learn how to carry a gun.

 First rule: A gun is expensive and a tool to save your life. Do not …
