So, the time came for HollyBaby blogger Sarah to cave in and buy herself some maternity jeans. Turns out she’s not the one who hates them — her husband Neil is!
No, it’s not the stretchy band that bothers Neil, it’s the price! His wife’s bump may be showing, but that doesn’t mean he’s excited — get ready for the credit card bills to come rollin’ in!
Time to pack up a bag full of supplies, a few snacks and a change of clothes. No it’s not time for the hospital just yet, It’s time to REGISTER.
While the baby books can tell you what to expect WHEN you’re expecting it’s hard to know what you may need after the baby comes. Our HollyBaby Bloggers, Sarah and Neil, tell us all about creating their registry, one chew toy at a time.

It was time to celebrate the upcoming birth of my baby boy, but in all honesty, all I was looking forward to was seeing my friends after being cooped up for so long! Oh, and did I mention the dessert…
As the end of my pregnancy was nearing, the extra weight, the large round protruding belly, the aching back and limbs all lent itself to making the simplest of tasks quite daunting. Eating and drinking nearly put me out of breath! My cosmetic routines were no longer a priority, and I found myself enjoying my terry cloth pants a little too much…so much that I wore a hole in them!

There has always been a debate between couples involving the happy, but dreaded, pregnancy announcement and HollyBaby.com‘s parents-to-be, Sarah Main and Neil Eggleton, are no exception. While one tried to hold out, the other might have let the happy news slip to just a few people. Read on to see what ensued!
Have you ever seen the multitude of pregnant women in New York City with something obviously absent on their ring finger? Well, I’m one of them.
In my pre-pregnancy ignorance, I assumed these diamond-less, bumpy women were just a significant amount of unwed mothers-to-be in the city. Until I found myself in my third trimester and completely ringless, like one of those pregnant women I had previously judged in my youth.
Just when I thought it was time to relax on my last vacation before baby, in came the dreaded airport security frisking! Pregnancy pat down? Yeah, not my cup of tea.
While I was only at liberty to take the occasional nap at work once during the day — and by nap I mean the two minutes I closed my eyes in the cold bathroom stall, placing my head on 1-ply toilet paper roll only to imagine it was a down pillow — my husband and I decided it was time to take a little vacation. If only to get away for a few days: a little “babymoon.”
It was time to tell the kids that they had a new sibling on the way, but to be honest, my husband and I were more terrified than excited!
We were committed to making the new arrival a smooth transition. So telling his three kids, from his previous marriage, that they were going to have a baby brother had to be done delicately and with great care. I think my husband was quite apprehensive and nervous about telling them, while I was more concerned in the manner in which we told them.
Maternity wear is so dowdy! But it’s about that time to choose practicality over Prada, so I am ready to take my first plunge into shopping for pregnancy fashion!
After my zipper debacle on the red carpet, I decided not to use Macgyver-like strategies of safety pins and rubber bands to prolong the use of my pre-pregnancy designer wardrobe. It was time….time to see what maternity clothes had to offer.
Prepare to be grossed out by the most disgusting baby story you’ll ever read!
It’s been just a few short weeks since Jill and I brought baby Callum home from the hospital, and this HollyDad has already been pooped on, peed on, puked on – and temporarily deafened by nightly tantrums and screaming fits. So I thought I’d faced the worst a baby boy can throw at his bewildered parent. How wrong I was.
My baby son Callum came into the world kicking, screaming and bright pink at 1.29 pm on December 8th, 2010. And changed my life forever, writes Ian.
It seems every birth story is tinged with drama, panic and lots of pain. And ours is no different. As HollyBaby.com‘s resident HollyDad, I’m here to share with you all the joys and wonder of a first-time father’s adventure into parenting. I hope you enjoy the ride!
