Good morning, what a beautiful day! I am more than just a little bit excited today to be able to announce that it was NOT a molar pregnancy!!! I am in the clear! The genetic testing came back yesterday afternoon, and...it's OVER!! It was just an incomplete miscarriage. This means no more questions, no more tests … Continue reading Test Results
I had my d&c early this afternoon and I am currently taking it easy at home. It went great (and there were even some amazing surprises that I'll get to in a bit) so thank you all for your positive thoughts and prayers!

I pursued having a completely natural experience with my third child because of what happened with babies one and two. I learned from their births and … Continue reading Deep Transverse Arrest ~ Could I Have Done Something?
The sweet and wonderful Margaret of The Word (a blog devoted to sharing Bible verses and poetry about the Lord!!) tagged me this week in a fun, nostalgic tag. Thank you for thinking of me! To participate in the #MyFirstPostRevisited tag, I'm supposed to either copy and share my first post here or reblog it. I also … Continue reading #MyFirstPostRevisited Tag! :)
