Laura’s Bump Day Blog, Week 33 – Is It All Uphill or Downhill from Here?

This last week started the routine I became so familiar with in my first rainbow pregnancy. Weekly visit to the MFM, onto the monitors, drink some ice water. I’ve learned to read the strips, I joke with the nurses – I like my new MFM’s setup, in a room with several other NST chairs and [...]

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 38: To My Precious Rainbow Baby

To my precious Rainbow Baby: “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain ‘Move from here to there’ and it WILL move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” – Matthew 17:20 For the past 268 days, you’ve grown from the size of a little mustard to seed [...]

Laura’s Bump Day Blog, Week 32 – The Wall of Guilt

The last week has been hard. Really, really hard. I’ve hit that point in pregnancy – the one most moms experience, but the one that feels oh so different when you’re PAL. I’ve hit the wall. I’m uncomfortable. All the pillows are on the bed. Baby boy manages to kick my bladder and my ribs [...]

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 37: Hopeful for a Rainbow After the Storm

In less than two weeks, life is going to be very different for us. For the most part, I’ve been positive about having our rainbow baby. It’s crazy to think that after all the heart break, tears, waiting, hope, and never giving up, we may be lucky enough to leave the hospital with a baby [...]

Laura’s Bump Day Blog, Week 31 – “Next Time We See You, You’ll Have a Baby”

I’ve been here before. Wrapping up our annual summer vacation with family, saying our goodbyes, making plans for the holidays. Squeezes of my belly, the same saying, over and over again. “Next time we see you, you’ll have a new baby to cuddle!” This makes the third time we’ve done this cycle. Three babies due [...]

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 36: I Can’t Keep Calm, I’m Having My Rainbow Baby Soon!

19 days and a wake up, and I can’t keep calm! I can’t keep calm and there's a million reasons why. I can't keep calm because I feel that our rainbow baby would be safer in my arms than in my belly. I can’t keep calm because I'm beyond excited to finally meet Colbie. I [...]

Laura’s Bump Day Blog, Week 30 – Her Special Place

I never expected this place to be filled with so much emotion, so much memory, so soon. It’s only been six years since I first stepped foot on Martha’s Vineyard to meet the family of the guy I’d been dating barely two months. As he walked me hand-in-hand around the town, I told him I [...]

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 35: A Heart Full of Hope and Confidence

It's hard to believe that in four weeks (or less) life is going to be very different. Just four long weeks filled with anxiety and excitement are left until we finally get to welcome our little rainbow baby into the world! Believe it or not, despite everything lately health wise not going in my favor, [...]

Laura’s Bump Blog, Week 29 – Why I Did It.

Believe it or not, there are some out there today that would be questioning something hundreds of thousands of pregnant women likely did today – viewed the eclipse. There are legends/myths/stories throughout many cultures that said that pregnant women should NOT be outside during an eclipse, and it would result in everything from crooked joints [...]

Mikey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 34: The Final Month

My heart wants the month to go by faster, but my fears dread each day closer to my C-section date. Months of counting down the moments, wishing away the days, and we are now in the final month. I’m excited, but my anxiety is at its worst. We officially have five weeks, or less, until [...]
