Cruddy Week, Cruddy Weekend
The past about 2 weeks have been really rough for me. My husband just got a new job (yay!) but that meant we were out insurance (scary, stressful, freaking me out). My milk supply has been all over the place, had to supplement from my stockpile ... Read more
Sorry For Being Away!

Baby Updates: Weight and Other Things

Baby Update! Name, etc!
So we've finally just about settled on our baby girl's name. We're going with Freyja Wilhelmina. Freyja, after the Norse goddess and leader of the Valkyries because it's epic that's why, and Wilhelmina after a main character in my husband's favo... Read more

IT HAS A FACE!
Went to the OB to check on baby's heart (apparently they have to check to make sure it's still there in these early stages). They have this weird sound amplifying do-hicky thing to listen to heartbeat sounds. We hear nothing. Doc tries a second ... Read more

Worst Week in Years
Wow. Just, wow.
This has been, by far, one of the worst weeks I've had for a very, very long time.
