I’m 34 weeks today. Part of me thinks, “FINALLY!” and the other part thinks, “6 weeks until my due date…”
The good news is, now that I am 34 weeks, I can officially deliver at our local hospital. It’s been a milestone for me, since the boys were born at 31 weeks and had to be transported to Seattle for their early care. I really didn’t want to have to go through that again, and thankfully, I shouldn’t have to at this point. Continue reading
And I am supposed to go 8 more weeks? And then what? Deliver a 12 pound baby? HA HA HA… this is getting rather ridiculous! But before I post a picture, a little update… Continue reading
Today I turned 31 weeks. I was nervous about it for some time because the boys were born at exactly 31 weeks.

I got rear-ended, and I believe that the girl who hit me was going the speed limit (25 or 35) as it was quite a hit. Continue reading
Some of my friends have noticed I disappeared from Facebook. In a fit of pregnancy-induced rage, I deactivated my account last week. Ok, it wasn’t ALL spontaneous and pregnancy related, but I just decided I’d had enough of reading everyone’s political rants – er, opinions – and endless (and untrue) forwards. I joined Facebook five years ago to keep up to date with my friends – their jobs, their families, their lives. It’s just gotten… ugly, for lack of better description… in recent months, especially since the election. And I’m tired of it. So buh-bye, Facebook! Continue reading
Holy Mary, there’s a reason my body hurts so much lately! 28 weeks… 12 (or less!) to go…
As a Christmas gift, we got an all-expense-paid trip to First Impressions Prenatal Ultrasound, a “boutique” ultrasound place here in town that does 3D scans. We went on Saturday and got to see a preview of Miss Shiloh! Continue reading
