Well, I made it to the last scheduled appointment and a final growth scan. Ultrasounds aren’t really super accurate, but Scarlett is measuring around 6lbs and Landon around 6.5 lbs, so we’ll see how everyone ends up. Carter and Isabelle were both measuring around 5.5 lbs at their last appointment and Carter ended up being… Continue reading Last Appointment!
It’s hard to believe we’re so close to expanding our little family. Carter and Isabelle know that mommy has a baby brother and sister in her tummy and that they will be a big brother and sister, but I don’t think they have any idea what’s actually coming. It continued to be physically difficult, but… Continue reading 35 weeks down, 2 to go
I’m somewhere between 29-31 weeks, I think just over 30 and things are going fairly well. This pregnancy has been different. At around 22 weeks gestation, I went to the ER after what I perceived to be a large loss of fluid. It felt similar to my water breaking last time but did end up… Continue reading Updates
Cruising right along, I’m 15 weeks pregnant now. We’ve graduated to the OB and Justin has been able to see our babies in utero. Next week, we have an ultrasound at which we were able to see sexes last time, so that’s a possibility. Justin and Isabelle think it’s a girl and a boy. Carter… Continue reading 15 weeks
A lot has happened in the last several months and I'm pleased to share we now have two healthy two-year-olds. Shortly after their second birthday, my sweet Carter jumped off a chair and broke his foot, so we're dealing with him in a cast. Prior to their second birthday, in December, we switched their daycare.… Continue reading We’re TWO!
Where we last left one another: my issues seemed to compound regarding pain, the need for a hysterectomy, and making a final decision on my reproductive years. Somewhere around the holidays, J and I started discussing the situation in a bit more detail. I, of course, had just finished selling all our baby gear, proclaiming… Continue reading The last 8 months and what happens after you sell all your baby gear.
Well, it feels like forever since I’ve caught up. The time just gets more sparse as our two whirlwinds never slow down. Our sweet lovelies are fifteen months old and have not stopped moving. They both started walking a couple months ago and are constantly on the move. Both with big personalities and a lot… Continue reading 15 months and other updates
Lengthy holiday letters seem to be a thing of the past. Nowadays, I’ve heard them categorized as narcissistic, but there was a time – before social media – where they were commonplace. A time to catch loved ones up on your year; both high and low points. Reading holiday letters from my older relatives (the… Continue reading Happy 2020!
Justin is the sock to my foot; closer fitting than a shoe, he envelops me. Throughout the beginning of our relationship (we started dating when I was 18), he listened patiently and scoffed at my self-diagnosed infertility. I waited his arbitrary seven years which he believed would deter divorce and we married. After fighting to… Continue reading An ode to my quiet partner
I don't like ticks. I don't mind spiders, snakes, bugs, etc., but I've never liked ticks. I find them gross and freaky. Last Tuesday, my sweet baby boy got bit at daycare at water day. They called Justin and me and stated that they couldn't take it out as it's considered a medical procedure. So,… Continue reading Another strike against ticks…!
