Recently, I had a dream that I was pregnant. I was full term and in labor. I was laying in the hospital bed and kept asking the doctor to put the fetal monitors on my stomach to monitor my baby while I had contractions. The doctor refused to do this. I knew it meant that … Continue reading Dreams and reality
This time last year I was in the midst of recovering from my miscarriage and D&C. The blog posts have popped up on my Timehop app. I’ve re-read a bunch of these posts and can’t believe that I am back in the midst of grieving a baby a year later. I remember saying to people … Continue reading My loss and its impact on Pregnant Women
Today is our 5 year anniversary. We celebrated the milestone by going away lastweekend to the beach. Originally we didn’t plan on going anywhere because we were supposed to have a newborn, but things changed and we decided we deserved the time away. Asher was never far from our thoughts and reminders of him were … Continue reading Five Year Anniversary- Open letter to Hubby
Murphy, As you know, you are my first baby. We brought you home the same day that we officially moved into our house over three years ago (which was a super crazy decision but we couldn't wait any longer to have you home). I remember saying to your Daddy, “we are home” after we … Continue reading An Open Letter to my First Baby
Yesterday we kicked off the 3rd trimester at 28 weeks. Cannot believe how quickly time is passing and that in 3 months, I have to give birth to a baby!!!! (Still haven’t had my "giving birth" freak out yet but I know it is coming). This past weekend we finally got his room painted and … Continue reading IN THE HOME STRETCH
As 2016 comes to an end, one can’t help but look back at the past year. Overall, I think this year was a rough one for everyone. As a society, we lost a lot of amazing musicians and entertainers this year. In the last week alone, we lost 3 influential ones. We had the biggest … Continue reading 2016 Obligatory Year in Review
The Christmas season is my absolute favorite time of year. I love the music, decorations, and my family’s Christmas traditions. Even though it is my favorite time of year, I do not rush it. I am one of those people who are very strict about when to start celebrating. I refuse to decorate or listen … Continue reading It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
We are well into the second trimester at 22 weeks. The morning sickness finally stopped at 20 weeks, 5 months. (So don’t listen to the women who say it fades after the first trimester!) Overall, I feel good! Sleep has become a little more evasive for me. I really need to just man up and … Continue reading Preggo Update
This week we had our anatomy scan. This was my first time having an external ultrasound or as my husband put it, “the way they do them in the movies”. We were very excited because we wanted to know the gender since we intended to have a gender reveal to find out with our family … Continue reading It’s a…..
As I confessed before, I am a bit of a hypochondriac. Before, it stemmed from my fear of doctors and needles. I am since over my fear of needles, after all of the infertility treatments and D&C. Now, my hypochondria stems from my fear of something going wrong with this pregnancy. I am absolutely terrified … Continue reading What’s happening to me?! Oh, wait, I’m pregnant!
