At 17 weeks today! Saw the midwife yesterday—the final one in the practice I hadn't met. Adore her, too. I'm so glad that at this point I would be incredibly thrilled to have any of these ladies around when I give birth—incredible women, all.

I received an ever-so-kind message yesterday reminding me that I need to update. I totally failed at blog posting last week (and I'm okay with that!). But I am, in fact, at 16 weeks today!
Total weight gain: 3.5 pounds. Since I see that two w... Read more
Hello second trimester! I could not be more excited that we actually made it to this point! Honestly (and you might have caught on to this), I anticipated this pregnancy to be like the last two. I was ready to give up on my ability to carry a ch... Read more
Just pretend this was posted yesterday =0)
Saw the midwives on Monday. The midwife on call was offsite at a hospital attending a birth, While I was waiting on the midwife in the office, two different women called in labor. So I ended up waitin... Read more
This is the first time I've ever made it to 12 weeks. Really wish I could go to the doctor every other day for a mental health appointment. Cramping here and there, but no blood . . . so hoping all is still well.
I see the midwife on Monda... Read more
Oh, it feels good to be at 11 weeks. Had blood tests run yesterday to check my progesterone level—and I get to quit the progesterone shots! Woohoo!
Total injection tally: 117
I'm feeling pretty good. Nausea has pretty much left. I'm insan... Read more
Officially at 10 weeks! Had an ultrasound appointment yesterday and got to see our little monkey dance around (well, I at least saw a moving smudge . . . but the doctor seemed confident that it was our little monkey!). Heart rate was strong and ... Read more
Hello Week 9.
This week I bought new, bigger jeans. While my old ones still technically fit, the waistband fell right across my heparin bruises, which wasn't particularly pleasant. Seems the waistband may have also been making the bruises wor... Read more
Today I reach the 8 week mark!
I'm afraid my exclamation is truly lacking, as I just received the news that another sparkfriend who was due on the same day is losing her baby. And it is hard to muster much enthusiasm after news like that. ... Read more
Reached seven weeks! Things seem to still be going well. Nausea increased again yesterday to the point where I'm now feeling nausea most of the time (not just when needing to eat). In fact, feeling a surge now—when I just finished eating an appl... Read more
I'm 6 weeks pregnant today. Nausea seems to be increasing, which I'm thankful for (that may sound strange, but I'm glad to have any sign that this pregnancy is on track). In many ways this pregnancy isn't real to me yet. I've been incredibly emo... Read more
Third time's the charm?
I'm pregnant again! Got a BFP on Monday and immediately called the doc for bloodwork. Numbers jumped from 137 to 404 between Monday and Wednesday, so doc is pleased! I've added twice daily heparin shots to my daily protocol, so needles and I are... Read more
More than halfway through Whole30!
My Whole30 has been surprisingly easy. That is not to say that I haven't had some major temptations along the way, but they aren't as often as I'd anticipate. I've had a couple of strange food dreams—one involving toast and another involving pre... Read more
I did, in fact, win my dietbet! I won $19 for losing weight. Not bad! Starting a new one in 5 days. According to the scale this morning, I've lost an additional pound, putting me at 185.5 and officially under my pregnancy weight. Hoping to be in... Read more
More than halfway to goal!
I have 12 days left in my dietbet and have lost 5 pounds. I have three more to go to "win." AS of this morning, I am finally back in the 180s. If all goes as hoped, I should be back where I started my pregnancy in a week. It feels really good to... Read more
