One of the most exciting steps in a pregnancy is when you get to find out the gender of baby! I know that some people like to wait, but that just isn’t my cup of tea. I feel like I need to know to really get down to planning and being prepared.… Read the rest
You all have been following along on my pregnancy journey. I want to thank you for your prayers and investment into thinking about me. Your kind words and support have meant a lot. I decided that it’s time I give you an update on how it has all been going.
For those of you that don’t know, I am pregnant!… Read the rest
Now what? I am that statistic and I thought for sure that my next step would be taking tests. I had already spent a lot of money for the year on blood work from my December miscarriage and this April one. I have a high deductible, so I just thought that it would all work out.… Read the rest
Another week went by as I started to plan things in my head. I was planning out how December would look with a newborn, how Christmas would look with a newborn, how we would have to delay our big family trip to Hawaii, how I was convinced that I was having a girl, how I finally became ok with the girl name that Brent had picked out back before we had Elijah and so much more.… Read the rest

Did I have a miscarriage?
I hardly even know where to begin as I start this post. I don’t think I have ever shared anything like this on here before. I am hoping that it speaks to someone out there that needs to hear that you are not alone. Miscarriages are more common than we think, but no one ever talks about them.… Read the rest
