Worried about baby’s size among other things… 

June 21, 2017

So the doctor keeps mentioning that the baby is small. She said the baby is growing which is the important thing… but my belly doesn’t seem to be growing if the mirror is any indication.  The size of my belly has actually seemed to decrease in size since the 7month mark.  Not to mention the […]


Anxiety boost, 3 weeks before my due date

June 11, 2017

Pregnancy has been long and very frustrating… But lately all I can think about is whether or not Evie has formed correctly or not. The doctor isn’t doing ultrasounds so I haven’t seen her since she was just 18weeks gestation (and that was at Baby Sightings). Now I’m nearly 37 weeks. Are her limbs all […]


No-Fat diet Journal… 

May 23, 2017

Due to my 3rd Trimester Gallstones situation, I have had to cut out all fats. The various diet articles I’ve found for the gallbladder aren’t very comprehensive. Some say citrus is good, other say citrus will cause an attack. So I’m journaling so I  can decide for myself what works and what doesn’t. My plan:


Getting Ready for Evie

May 10, 2017

We’ve finally come up with an action plan for the new baby’s stuff & for the house, last minute as always. Lots to do… I’m glad we waited until I can barely move to figure things out. I really don’t see how this will get done before she gets here. 😠 Things to do to […]


3rd Trimester, 32 Weeks Pregnant, 8th month

May 10, 2017

My baby shower was last Sunday on May 7th. Got a lot of super cute girls stuff for Evie. I’m feeling very unorganized right now… Still haven’t figured out where we are going to put Evie’s crib & clothes. I’m not sure if we are going to put her in the same bedroom as Bronson, […]


Dear Evie, 

April 26, 2017

I’ve been thinking of you more and more as the days pass. Every day, every week, I get closer to the day when I finally get to meet you. I’ve become obsessed with your kicks, even the ones that hurt.  I keep wondering what you’ll look like. Will you look like your big brother? Or […]


Pregnancy update

April 24, 2017

Stats:  3rd Trimester / Almost 7 months pregnant. / 30th week. Evie should be around 3 lbs.  My symptoms have, very suddenly, become very debilitating. All the normal stuff applies. Sleeping isn’t going well because laying down is less comfortable. My hip joints hurt, my back and tailbone are popping more, etc.  Evie’s kicking more […]


Pregnancy Journal: Second Trimester 1/6/17 – April.. 

February 23, 2017

We made it to the second trimester!!!  That is a very big deal with pregnancies considering the chance for miscarriage lowers significantly.  Very big reason to celebrate. 1/30/17 At 16 weeks along, with Bronson, we went to get an ultrasound at Baby Sightings to find out that he was a boy.  We wanted to do the […]


Why Can’t I Read When I’m Pregnant!??

January 19, 2017

I am an avid reader.  Well, I have been since I figured out my eye-sight problem and dove in head first back in 2011.  In 2011, I got my first pair of prescription glasses that had to be worn 24/7.  Before then I had a few pairs for reading, then bifocals in 2006 but those […]

Here we go again…😄

October 31, 2016

Well, I knew it would happen eventually but I never expected my nervousness. I am pregnant! I started my period a few days ago but it never got past the spotting stage (which can take days for me sometimes) but then, instead of getting heavy flow, suddenly it stopped. That was when I realized I […]

Welcome our baby boy: Bronson Cole!
