We had our son on August 24, 2012. He weighed 7 lbs, 6 oz and was 20 inches long. He was born at 10:58 in the morning after 8 hours of active labour (though the day before, I experienced contractions from the afternoon until active labour started. But they were nothing. ha). The pregnancy was smooth, with no morning sickness, though I did have problems with my sciatic nerve and with heartburn.
Labour and delivery aren’t something I’d want to do every day, obviously, but really, it wasn’t so bad as so many people say it is. I thought it was an amazing experience, and I felt so strong and accomplished and amazing after he was born.
He is such a blessing to us – a busy, happy little guy who makes us laugh every day. What a gift. 3 weeks ago
It would seem getting accidentally pregnant is hard, really hard. But we’ve only been trying for 4-5 months and had 3 miscarriages. The last one was a miscarriage at 8 weeks and it kinda put me into baby shock and had a costly doctor bill to go with. sigh4 weeks ago
- visited my OB and asked for a very good brand of Folic Acid vitamin.
- why do i have to take B vitamin?
1. Folic acid helps prevent certain birth defects.
2. It works if taken before and during early pregnancy.
see how serious I am now? :) 1 month ago
Our daughter was due 22 September, which happens to be the birthdate of her namesake. She, however, decided to join us on the outside at 39w5d.
FSK was born at home on 9/20; 7lbs 15oz, 18.5” long.
Consistent contractions started around 1500 Thursday and by 1800, The Husband called our midwife and asked her to come over. I was 5cm dilated by the time she arrived, and labored in our birth tub, on the bed, and on the toilet until around 0300 Friday when I was ready to push. Pushing took some time, and at 0626, our daughter came into the world screaming.
Our midwife, her assistant, and her student were absolutely amazing, and I am so, so glad that we went the home birth route. Giving birth now ranks among the coolest things I have ever done.
And to be totally honest, labor and delivery were not nearly as bad as I was expecting them to be. I was definitely uncomfortable at times, but the pain was never unmanageable. 2 months ago

I couldn’t be more in love. 2 months ago
My husband has to get his vasectomy reversed.
He was married before and had three kids and then got fixed at her request.
A year lady, they divorced…
Now five years later, we are married and want to have a baby.
So we’re saving up the money for the reversal. 2 months ago
I will be 22 weeks on Saturday! So crazy that we are more than half way there!! It feels a little unreal right now due to a few things:
1. I have placenta anterior which means that my placenta is at the front of my belly. Because of this I can hardly feel any of the baby’s movement. By this stage last pregnancy little T was rocking and rolling!
2. I have a very busy two year old that takes up A LOT of time and energy so its easy to forget that I am busy growing another one :)
3. I have had a terrible cold that has lasted nearly three weeks now and has kept me up at night coughing, sneezing, and blowing my nose. Grrrrr.
BUT, despite those three things, every time I have a moment to sit quietly, I am SO excited to be blessed with another pregnancy. I am really looking forward to bringing this sweet little soul into this world! Oh, and if all goes well,I think we are going to plan for a home birth this time! 2 months ago
My last few entries have been of positive tests which unfortunately ended in miscarriages. Between November and March I had been pregnant a total of three times and the last one is my current pregnancy. We’re expecting a girl, due December 6th! 2 months ago
