Digital Rules in the Delivery Room

Do you Have Digital Rules in the Delivery Room? I do. Now that I am getting closer to the actual delivery (I am 37 weeks and 3 days at the time of this writing), I am contemplating everything from more life insurance to what to put in this hospital delivery bag...which I have not packed. I am very concerned about Digital Rules in the Delivery Room and beyond. As a very private person with a lot...

Can You Work Through Your Pregnancy?

Do You Have to Work Through Your Pregnancy like I do? I always imagined that I would be married by 25, kids by 27 and full swing into my power career and busting balls by the time I was 33. Well...I have probably busted some balls and that's about it. I am 40 years old and 7 ½ months pregnant and nope...ya girl is not married. This means that me and my Sweet Pea are totally dependent on me to...

We still have the same thoughts, (me and my Mother) and I would never want that to change. I...

Is Pregnancy Guilt Real

Is Pregnancy Guilt a Real Thing?

While we can all agree there is really no such thing as “Daddy Guilt” is there a such thing as Pregnancy Guilt? Why yes, there is. Pregnancy Guilt is Real I thought that the idea of it was silly. Now I realize that pregnancy guilt is a REAL thing. When I ignore that bag of spinach and reach for cookies in the fridge...I feel awful. I mean REALLY awful. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the...
Pregnancy App Apps Classy Black Girl

My Favorite Pregnancy Apps

As a first time “geriatric Mom” you are pulling for straws (and information) simply trying to figure out exactly what is happening to your body and if it’s normal. This is when you need pregnancy apps! When I had implantation bleeding, I didn’t lose my mind because I learned about it online before it actually happened to me. It is a pretty trite saying, but knowledge IS power. I receive a...

My First Trimester, I’m Pregnant! #MomLife

Finding out that you are about to be a single, 40 year old first time Mother is a lot. It is heavy, scary and exciting all in one breath. I found out that I was carrying a life - a whole baby. Me, self-centered, sleep until 10 on the weekends, wine whenever and lifestyle expert (party-girl) Sharelle D. Lowery, is having a baby. Pregnant #ItsTrue October 1st was the day that changed my life. I now...
