Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 13: Planning for the Baby

As of last Sunday, I am officially 13 weeks and almost out of the first trimester. Most people breathe a sense of relief after leaving the first trimester because that is supposedly when the miscarriage rates drop and also when some of the annoying first trimester symptoms start to go away. Even though I had [...]

Kasey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 27: Trying to Trust My Gut

Twenty seven weeks. We are just one week away from the third trimester. It is incredible to me that this pregnancy is this far along! Pregnancy feels like such well-traveled road. And yet, here I am, so familiar with being pregnant but facing (hopefully) 13 more weeks of uncharted territory for me. At the same [...]

Kasey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 26: Thanksgiving and Black Friday

Coming up to Thanksgiving I was doing relatively well. For the past two weeks we have been in a sweet spot. Being past the anatomy scan, passing 24 weeks, and feeling consistent movement eased some of my worry about this baby and this pregnancy. I also feel like we can continue to avoid preparations for [...]

Kasey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 24: Viability, a Cold, and Movement

For many pregnancies, 24 weeks is a big milestone. It is known as the first marker of viability, a point after which a baby has a chance at survival outside of the womb. For loss parents, if this milestone has any meaning at all, it is watered down. 37 weeks feels no safer than 24 [...]

Kasey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 23: Watching from the Sidelines – A Loss Dad’s Experience

This week's bump day blog is a guest post from Kasey's husband, Eric Saindon. I am a positive and energetic person. I’m the teacher that swings a toy light saber in the hallways or sings out of tune as students are walking into my class just to be silly. In moments when I act less [...]

Kasey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 22: Feeling Good?

Now that we are past the scary anatomy scan milestone, our friends and family have been asking how we are feeling. I want to respond with “I feel good.” It is true. I do feel good. I am still so glad to be past that hurdle. I still feel less anxious than I have this [...]
