We have been waiting anxiously since June for this day. Since the moment that we found out that I was miraculously pregnant so soon after my miscarriage (and the d&c which helped my body to complete it). We have been waiting. Will it be a boy or a girl?

And I have been doing well; … Continue reading Baby #5 | Pregnancy after D&C | Week Ten
Hello all! I thought I'd stop in to give a little update on the baby jelly bean. :) He or she looked fantastic on the ultrasound monitor today and had a heart rate of 168 beats per minute! After the ultrasound, I had my first official prenatal appointment with one of the midwives. It went … Continue reading Baby #5 | Pregnancy after D&C | Week Eight
