Modern Mami: I'm Having A Bummy Day (And Other Pregnancy Woes)
By Kristina Guerrero | 05/10/2013 - 08:58

Is it okay that I have a bummy day? Is it okay that I admit my back hurts, I really miss eating sushi, and I don’t like that my dimples have moved from my face to my butt? Is it okay that the next person to tell me that I look like I’m about to ‘pop’ should watch out because I might have to ‘pop’ them in the face?

Modern Mami: 10 Reasons Why I Love Being Pregnant!
By Kristina Guerrero | 05/02/2013 - 15:04

My mom, a lady who gave birth to five kids and knows a thing or two about pregnancy, once told me that she loved being pregnant. I could certainly understand her love for her unborn children but loving being pregnant?
