Lucina

Lucina is new to Andaluz. Before she came to this midwife group she had a private practice called “By Her Side Midwifery”. Since she is new, her biography isn’t on the Andaluz webpage so I went snooping and found out how truly awesome she is! Lucina is dedicated to preserving women’s right to choose their […]

A Home for Our Growing Family

The dust has settled. I’m over the tears (I think). I’m ready to move forward … we’re look for a home and this is why: The facts … Last summer we moved from our duplex in east Vancouver to a family friend’s home in west Vancouver. They were moving to Texas and had decided not […]

Ultrasound

Heartbeat!

It’s the big day … our first REAL appointment at Andaluz! I’ll be honest, I have had some major freak out moments leading up to this day. It is hard to believe that a pee stick can define the rest of your life. In and effort to question the validity of the pee stick you […]

Woohoo! Tomorrow is the beginning of week 10! Dominic and I have decided to move forward with Andaluz Waterbirth Center.

Week 9: “The Enchanted Forest”

Hi Family … I’m back with another report :) I’m having a hard time gauging how sick I actually feel. On one hand you hear about people who non-stop throw up for the first trimester; on the other hand there are those who don’t get sick at all. I’m somewhere in the middle and depending […]

Week 8: “Join Me For the ‘Bumpy’ Ride”

We are coming up on 8 weeks (on Thursday). That’s 2 months … approximately 20% (if we are assuming this baby will bake for 40 weeks). Since I don’t see you all on a daily/weekly basis I figured I should start journaling all that is going on so I’m not pregnant by myself … lol! […]

“It’s For Sure!”

Monday morning I had an appointment with my doctor … you know, to make sure the pregnancy test didn’t lie. It didn’t. She was able to connect with an OB/GYN who works out of the same office so I could chat with someone. I rattled off a handful of questions and took her card. She […]

Breaking the News to the RoBo Clan

RoBo = Robertson and Bossio. It is our creative nickname so we don’t have to list off each individual person :) Over the last few years I have supported Dominic, MarlonDad and Anton in a number of sporting events/championships/other monumental sport things. Miss America is the equivalent to me so I invited MarlonDad and JanMom […]

The beginning …

This story begins on Saturday, January 30th (the same day Miss America 2010 aired if you were curious). Unfortunately the rest of the story is panning out to be very un-Miss America … it lacks glamour. The good news is, this story is bursting with fun surprises and the best prize of all. That’s right […]
