Kasey’s Bump Day Blog: Ava June’s Birth Story

When I wrote my 37 week post I did not expect it to be my last bump day blog post before our baby was born. I expected to have three more posts! As I wrote in that last post, in some ways Eric and I were very ready for the baby to arrive as we [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 31: Going to Counseling

We all handle loss differently. Some of us are open to talking about every aspect of it, and some of us don’t ever want to talk about it. The level of support that someone who has lost a pregnancy receives can vary as well. Maybe you are lucky and have a lot of friends and [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 30: A Great MFM Appointment

This has been a pretty busy week at work this past week, which has been great for making time go by faster. We are in the final week stretch before the tax deadline, so I know this upcoming week will be crazy too. Then things will slow down and not really ramp back up until [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 29: An Uneventful Week

I can’t believe I have already hit 29 weeks. I keep thinking that the rest of this pregnancy seems so long, but then realize another week has completely passed. I had my regular OB appointment last week and had to do my gestational diabetes test.  Fortunately, I got the call yesterday that I passed.  Since [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 28: Hitting the Third Trimester

I have officially hit the third trimester, which sometimes felt like it would never come. I was just thinking about it the other day and I have 12 weeks left. Which both seems super long and super quick. Sometimes I feel like this is the never ending pregnancy just because I want her here safe [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 27: It’s Okay to Complain

I used to get really annoyed at people who complained about their pregnancy. After having multiple losses, I would have given anything to be having those complaints. I felt they should just be grateful for being pregnant with a healthy baby. But with this pregnancy, I’ve learned that it’s true what they say, that each [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26: After the One Year Anniversary

I expected last Monday to be harder than it was. As I mentioned in my last post, it was the one year anniversary of losing our daughter. I debated on whether I should go to work or not. I am lucky to work in an environment of people that are understanding and decided to go [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 25: The Upcoming One Year Anniversary

The one year anniversary of losing our angel daughter is fast approaching on March 11th.  I didn’t exactly know how I would be feeling come that day. I mean, I knew obviously I would be sad and be missing her, but I just don’t really know the extent of what the feelings will be. I [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog: Week 24, Hitting Pregnancy Viability Week

I hit 24 weeks this past Sunday, which is what a lot of people refer to as “V-Day” or “Viability Day”.  It’s the point at which, if the baby was born early, they have a chance at survival. It’s also the point in a pregnancy in which doctors might take life-saving measures to save the [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 23: A Champion for Loss

All of us face challenges in our life, but sometimes it seems that we are forced to face more than others. And it makes you wonder, am I being punished? Did I do something to deserve this? Am I really that bad of a person? In an ideal world, bad things don’t happen to good [...]
