When I was pregnant for the first time, I found myself addicted to labor and delivery shows on television. I couldn’t make myself stop watching the terrifying horror of babies being born. I would watch and cry. Watch and cry.
I just couldn’t stop.
After my first child was born, I found myself addicted to shows about the baby coming home from the hospital. I would see the little welcome home party, the sweet walks to the park, the sleepless nights… I would watch and cry and breastfeed. Watch and cry and breastfeed.
I just couldn’t stop.
When I was pregnant for child #3, I found myself addicted to shows about women killing their husbands. I would watch and eat ice cream and terrify my husband. Watch and eat ice cream and terrify my husband.
I just couldn’t stop.
Now that my kids are growing up, and I’m chasing after them for most of the day, I don’t have a whole lot of time for television.
But there is one show that I DVR and watch religiously. I just can’t stop.
I watch and cry and watch and cry. And then I watch some more.
Please tell me that I am not the only one addicted to I’m Having Their Baby on Oxygen!
From teen moms to single moms to moms that may be pregnant because of an affair – the show creators do an amazing job of taking situations that could be turned into trashy television and portray them in a documentary style that expresses the drama – without any extra drama (if you know what I mean).
I have never experienced adoption first hand – yet I am so drawn to hearing and watching these women as they struggle with unplanned pregnancies, move through the adoption process and ultimately decide whether or not to place their baby in the hands of another family. And don’t even get me started on the adoptive parents because I will turn into a blubbering mess right this second.
Yes – I am addicted. And I’m gearing up for Season Two – which starts on Wednesday, June 12 at 10pm (in just a few weeks!)
If you missed Season One, you can catch up by watching every single episode right here. (You’re welcome.)
And if you’ve been addicted like me, you’re going to love this. Here’s a short web-isode where we get to catch up with Mercedes to see how she and her boyfriend (and the baby they put up for adoption) are doing after Season 1. Watch “I’m Having Their Baby; Raising Vivienne” here:
Watch the web-isode and comment below to let me know your favorite part.
Or what you’re most looking forward to in Season 2.
Or what you LOVE the most about I’m Having Their Baby.

This is a sponsored post. All opinions (and addictions) are mine.
UPDATE: The giveaway is over. Congratulations to Mami2jcn for winning the $50 gift card!
I teamed up with OshKosh B’gosh to bring you today’s sponsored post. One of my readers is going to take home a $50 gift card to OshKosh B’gosh, and everyone will have the chance to enter a huge giveaway – where the winner takes home a $5,000 gift card!
When my friends at OshKosh B’gosh reached out to me to help them promote two giveaways, I was thrilled. Because my kids pretty much LIVE in OshKosh B’gosh clothing.
Just last week we went to a family wedding in North Carolina. It came at the tail end of our beach vacation, and the day before the wedding I realized that I hadn’t packed any wedding clothes for my kids.
Yes – leave it to me to plan an entire family vacation around going to a wedding in North Carolina and then forget to pack clothes to wear to the wedding. I’m awesome like that.
Alice doesn’t travel anywhere without a skirt and her sparkly shoes, so she was all set. But the boys were another story. We were at the beach. I didn’t bring polo shirts or button downs. And khaki pants were the nicest thing we had.
But luckily I had packed their all-time favorite t-shirts.
Pssst… they’re on sale for just $6.95 right now! Click here.
My boys wore their ties to the wedding – and they were adorable in their OshKosh B’gosh t-shirts!
Okay – enough about me and my love for OshKosh B’gosh – I know you just want to know how you can walk away with up to a $5,000 gift card.
