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? Who will complete our family this … Continue reading Pregnancy after D&C | Baby #5 | It’s a…
Weaning is moving along nicely now. She hasn't nursed in the middle of night in over a week and we're down to just one feed a day most days (two at most), so things are looking good. My breasts didn't appreciate going 24 hrs between feeds at first but now they've adjusted. :) I'm 16w5d … Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 8/28/17
I went to see my Obstetrician on Thursday for my sixteen week prenatal visit and we ended up talking for about an hour about the upcoming birth!

No wonder she's in 2T/3T at 13 months. ^_^ I was pleased to see that her iron was at 12.5 (it's gotta be the grits she has for breakfast every morning). She didn't even care … Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 8/16/17
This is not a sponsored post. I have fallen in love with a bra especially made to wear while breastfeeding and I want to share my experience with you. I paid for the bras myself and (unfortunately) I have no affiliation with Motherhood Maternity. ;) I'm not one for spending lots of money on clothes, … Continue reading Motherhood Maternity Nursing Bras | A Review
When I went for my twelve week midwife appointment, there was a lot going on (namely, all four kids were sick!) so something that happened that day only finally caught up with me yesterday - two weeks after the fact. The midwife had attempted to hear the baby's heartbeat with the Doppler but there was … Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 8/11/17
