One of the nice things about PK no longer being in utero is that I finally have full control of my bladder back. I walked A LOT during my pregnancy (and still do), and towards the end of the pregnancy, I would have to plot out my route based on the location of public washrooms. Now that my bladder is no longer being squished and now that laughing, sneezing, and coughing no longer cause me to pee myself, I no longer have to worry about such things. And it's a good thing too, because sometimes I just don't have the opportunity to go pee if PK needs a diaper change or desperately needs to be fed (and by desperately I mean accompanied by a blood-curdling cry that wrenches your heart). Thank goodness for all those Kegel exercises I did during my pregnancy!
PK Land is a blog about my experiences as a parent. It is a follow-up to my pregnancy blog, PK on the Way, which I wrote to document my pregnancy in the hopes of someday sharing it with my daughter. PK is short for "Potential Kid", which the hubby and I used to refer to the child that we might have in the future. We also referred to our unborn child as PK, as we didn't quite have a name picked out for her until she was born. Even though "PK" has an actual name (and her initials are not P.K.), I thought I'd keep up the anonymity (and save her future embarrassment) by continuing to use PK in this blog.
