6 Lessons I Learned Through Early Pregnancy Loss

early pregnancy loss

  I know there are lots of articles out there about pregnancy loss, but I think an early pregnancy loss is different in some ways than others. Not to say one is worse than the other, but that the emotions are just different. Also, I think the view that society seems to have on early loss is different.

Pregnancy Update: 33 Weeks

pregnancy 33 weeks

I've been meaning to do a pregnancy update for quite some time, but never thought to have Louis take a picture of me while it was convenient.

Thursday’s the day!

This morning Louis and I finally got to meet the Dr. who will be delivering, and he was totally in agreement with us about being induced. My family Dr. (whom I'd been seeing the whole pregnancy) had sent him a note explaining why we were hoping to schedule an induction, so when we went to see him today he more or less came into the room and said "I [More...]

Pregnancy Prayer Request..A Sign or a Test?

This is going to be a bit long, but I want to make sure I explain things well so please, bear with me :)I have a negative blood type, and hubby has a positive blood type. If you're wondering what that has to do with anything, it means that if I have a baby with a positive blood type, my body could potentially start to create antibodies against the [More...]
