Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 17: The Upcoming Anatomy Scan

My anatomy scan is coming up quickly and is only about a week away. It is something I have been both dreading and looking forward to. I’m scared to go because even though we have had normal ultrasounds up until this point, I am still afraid they will find something wrong. On the other hand, [...]

Kasey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 32: Preparing and Reflecting

At 32 weeks, the discomforts are increasing, sleep is very interrupted, and I am feeling more tired than I have been for a while. At some moments I feel like the remaining eight weeks until my due date are not nearly enough to logistically get ready for this baby. I am aware of all the [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 16: Shopping for the New Baby

We went into a baby store over the weekend to look for some furniture for the new baby. I always love the smell of the baby stores because it’s a familiar smell. As we went in though, I realized the last time we set foot in one was for our son. With all the stress [...]

Kasey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 31: Another New Year Watching Families Grow

Last year around New Year’s I wrote in my journal about how hard the holidays are while grieving. At that time, we had been grieving for two years of holidays in a row. In 2016, I had imagined being pregnant at Christmas. My idea of this was more picturesque than real life, but I was [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 15: An Emotional Holiday Season

I now have hit 15 weeks, which is only 5 weeks away from half-way. Sometimes this pregnancy seems to be going by super fast and I can’t believe I am almost half-way done.  Other times, it seems to drag and I look at the 25 weeks ahead I still have and wonder how I will [...]

Kasey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 30: Stockings, Names, and Elephants

I made stockings for Eric and I a few years ago.  For the past two Christmases I have debated about whether I wanted to make stockings for Danny and Lentil. We have ornaments for each of them, but I never ended up adding stockings to the fireplace. This year, I finally decided that I wanted [...]

Sarah’s Bump Day Blog, Week 14: Meeting with the MFM

We had another appointment with the maternal fetal medicine specialist (MFM) on Monday. I was actually fine leading up to the appointment all last week and even yesterday. But, of course the anxiety came back this morning and I was freaking out right before. I tried to do my calming breathing technique, but just couldn't [...]

Kasey’s Bump Day Blog, Week 29: Mixed Emotions

This was a big week that has contained a mix of feelings for me. I started out feeling great about finally being in the third trimester. I was enjoying this new milestone.

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 [...]
