My name is Patty Adams Martinez, and I'm excited to introduce you to the new blog, Everything Pregnancy, for Parents.com. As a mom of one adorable 9-month-old, what it feels like to be pregnant and the many ups (finding out the sex of the baby! feeling him kick for the first time!) and downs (morning sickness for 6 months straight! developing gestational diabetes!) are fresh in my mind.
Being pregnant is such a magical time, and I'm happy that I'll be a part of your journey, filling you in on everything from which celebrities are pregnant along with you, to how to dress your ever-growing bump, entertain alcohol-free, plan a babymoon on a budget, and decode all of the important (and sometimes crazy) studies that come out about pregnancy.
I'm an entertainment junkie, who has had the pleasure of interviewing tons of stars over the years, so this pop culture-filled blog about pregnancy is the perfect pairing of my two passions. I'll be blogging most weekdays with my postings going up around 1 pm ET (if I'm late—please cut me some slack due to my aforementioned cutie, who is currently crawling up a storm and getting into everything in sight).
Much like checking in with your BFF to get caught up on the latest in her life, my hope is that this blog will become a regular destination for mamas-in-the-making to find out the must-know pregnancy news of the moment. I want to hear your feedback too, so please keep me posted when I do something you like, or when I miss the mark. The important thing is to get a dialogue going, and to have a lot of fun along the way. I hope to hear from you soon! xoxo —Patty
