Pregnancy

16 Weeks – #2

How far along: 16 wonderful weeks!  And this past week 15-16 was the fastest yet.  I don’t have a clue why, because we didn’t do anything different.  Time just sped up, and I’m super grateful. (more…)

14 Weeks – #2

How far along? I’m now 14 weeks and in my second trimester.  This is a moment that seemed so so far away at the beginning (which was only 10 weeks ago).  The next “I can’t imagine it getting here” moment is 20 weeks, but that’s actually going to happen super quickly because 4 entire weeks of that will be spent in Chilliwack/on a solo vacation to Quebec City!!

10 Weeks – #2

How far along? Today I am 10 weeks, finally in double digits!  Getting here seemed to take unbelievably long.  In fact, I’ve been so worried about losing this baby that this is the first time I’ve written about it.  And unlike the first and second times, I’ve only taken 2 pictures so far.  Fortunately, I still feel pregnant, and I’m starting to get more confident this might actually work out.

The Shortest Life

I had the best news to tell you.  But then it was taken away.  After a year of wanting and waiting, there was finally another baby on the way.  We were so excited, this baby was already so loved.  Two weeks later it was over, the pregnancy was gone.  My heart was broken.

41 Weeks

I’m still pregnant, have a wicked cold and I’ve pretty much given up all hope of my body having this baby naturally.  Never again.  That just keeps running through my brain over and over in a loop.  I’m never doing this again.  I can’t do it now, I’m not coping, I feel like I’m not really alive.  If I ever talk about another kid, just smack me.  Hard.  Everything is perfectly alright with baby.  We had an ultrasound yesterday and a non-stress test today and she’s 110% okay.  She’s just not ready, or my body isn’t, who even knows?  Well, I’ve been reading about it and apparently it’s an enzyme secreted from baby’s lung when they’re fully matured that releases into my system and sets off the chemicals in my body to start labour.  So if that hasn’t happened yet, clearly baby isn’t ready.

40 Weeks

IMG_2392Here’s what I’ve been wanting to tell you all week: I’M SO OVER IT.  Actually, I’m a little annoyed that I’m still pregnant.  I don’t know why I figured or even hoped I’d deliver before my due date.  50% of women go over, and of course it is way too much to ask that I be one of the lucky 50% that don’t.  So here I am, almost constantly nauseous, extremely tired and in far too much pain than a person should be allowed to stand without permission to take pain medication.  HEY BABY! IF YOU NEED MORE ROOM THEN JUST COME OUT, YOU’VE GOT THE WHOLE WORLD TO KICK OUT HERE!  Plus, we’d both feel better if your head wasn’t grinding into my pelvis constantly.  Do your pain receptors just not work?  (more…)
