Tracy’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26: Repeating Sweet Rituals with a New Pregnancy

At 26 weeks I’m starting to become more and more baby-focused as opposed to pregnancy-focused. I spent my first trimester constantly checking for signs that I was indeed pregnant and staying pregnant, taking countless home pregnancy tests between my earliest appointments. I was so excited but afraid to let myself be so excited. Then there [...]

Laura’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26 – Slowing Down

My midwife said this would happen. At my last visit a few weeks ago, I told her I was in the glory days of pregnancy. My energy was peak, I was exercising again, I felt awesome. I registered for a triathlon next month. My family was eating delicious, home-cooked meals every night. She just smiled [...]

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26 – I’m Not Sorry

Everyone grieves differently and everyone’s loss is different. No two people can fully understand what the other’s exact feelings are, but for those that experienced that dark, and lonely road of pregnancy/child loss, they can relate to the horrible emotions. Despite so many changes our world has made, and strides taken to raise awareness so [...]

Jessica’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26 – The Impact of Busy

The past few weeks seem to have flown by. I guess that's what happens when you are busy, with a capital B! We are learning though, that busy isn't necessarily a good thing. So many people have said to us, since Leo died, "keep busy, it'll keep your mind occupied, stop you overthinking". Problem is, it doesn't [...]

Janice’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26: My Mom Car

The big thing to happen this week was trading my Jeep Wrangler in for a Subaru Forester. I now have a mom car. Not to say that you can't have a baby in a Wrangler, but mine is a two-door making it that much more impractical. I had decided with Jack that I'd wait and [...]

Heather’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26: Were You Trying for This One?

Oh those moments where your heart is split in two. When conflicting, opposite emotions invade the same spaces of your heart. What an odd feeling. The last couple weeks have held so much happiness and sadness for a couple of my close friends. I’ve rejoiced with a friend who had her first baby. And I’ve [...]

Elizabeth’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26: Travel Blues

We just had our last big flight of the year.  I am so glad that’s over.  The stress of being away from my doctors was more than I expected.  Every ache, every twinge, every chunk of time without feeling the baby move had me that much more on edge.  I’m already hypersensitive with the list [...]

Kristen’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26: Life, In 6 Hour Increments

Apologies for my missing Week 25 BDB - I wasn't able to post last week due to circumstances that were beyond my control... At my routine weekly appointment (at 24+5 weeks) to monitor my cervical length, I mentioned to my ultrasound tech - who always asks "How have things been since I saw you last [...]

1.

Hyedi’s Bump Day Blog Week 26: It Was Inevitable

I ended up going to the hospital this past week. A part of me is a little surprised this didn’t happen sooner. I’ve made quite a few calls to the after hours on-call doctor, but the outcome of those calls usually ended up with the doctor being able to talk me out of my state [...]
