About Me

Hi everyone! I’m happily surprised to be back with baby #3. I’m a musician and early childhood educator but have been a stay-at-home mom since my rough pregnancy with baby #1. Mom is my favorite job, but I’ll be back in the classroom someday. I have two daughters, both preemies. My older daughter turned 2 in June, and my younger daughter turned 1 in July, so they're almost "Irish twins." I was on CTP for a long time when trying with my ex. My husband and I got married in April of 2017, and our first was born at 36+2 via c-section (failed induction due to fetal distress) soon after. She was tiny- 3lbs 14oz and spent 3 weeks in the NICU. When she was 5 months old, we decided to TTC again. We conceived on the first try, and our 2nd girl was born at 33+6 and weighed 4lbs 3oz. She spent 18 days in the NICU. I have had some early losses in the past, so I'm just hoping things go smoothly for baby #3. We were not trying, but I am very excited. My husband is still coming around.

My Birth Plan

I really wish I could have a VBAC, but since I had 2 C-Sections 13 months apart, I'll probably be another C-Section. We'll see. I am meeting my new OB at 6 weeks, so maybe she'll be able to tell me more. Mostly I hope I don't get preeclampsia a 3rd time and have to deliver early again! I had to wait until the day after they were born to hold my daughters, so I hope I get to hold this little one right after birth. Every story is different. Pregnancy for me is both frightening and extremely beautiful.

Thanks so much! So cool your childhood bestie is on here too! I’m definitely growing, and it’s not the baby yet. This time feels different—most nausea I’ve had but biggest appetite too which is weird. Wondering if it’s a boy haha

Awww yes our youngest turned 2 in June too! Thank you! Still up in the air if we will have another, but my childhood bestie is pregnant with her rainbow so I'm on getting her hooked on here hahha. Excited to get to watch you both grow!

Thanks, starburstice! I remember you now we’re pregnant around the same time in 2016/17. Hope you and your family are doing well! I’m really really hoping to go fullterm :)
