About Me

This pregnancy hasn't been easy to start and maintain, but I can't believe we have made it this far. I am a repeat subchorionic hematoma (SCH) carrier and bled heavily the first 15-17 weeks of my pregnancy. My SCH went from 2-3cm at 6 weeks, to over 9cm at 14 weeks and now down to almost nothing at 25 weeks. At 20 weeks, I started contracting....and have an irritable uterus. I'm also at risk for pre-term labor (PTL) due to both the SCH and my past history of PTL with my son (who is now 11 years old). I'm monitored weekly and now have been taking regular trips to the Labor and Delivery unit for timeable contractions.

Yes, nothing has been easy with this pregnancy, but....we are so blessed that our baby has weathered all this!! Just keeping the faith daily that we'll continue to make just that "one more day".

It's also a BOY! :)

My Birth Plan

Just getting this baby here safely is our plan....and hopefully full-term. Really wanting to try and labor in a warm tub.....!

It is great being on CMP and seeing all the familiar names. So glad you have made it to almost the end of your pregnancy! You make pregnancy look good. And you are due on my birthday! Can't wait to hear if you end up doing a water birth. <3

Hi honey I'm so pleased for you making it to full term, I can't wait to hear of your birth story and see pics of your beautiful baby. Also - I just wanted to say thank you because you have been a great support throughout my pregnancy with Georgia and also been very supportive of my journey on falling pregnant with my second child xx

Happy Full Term Day!! :) I even hear the post offices are closed in your honor. (or maybe it's President's Day.. ;) )

Hi honey! Thank you so much. Yes she is - my beautiful baby girl. (Well not so much of a baby now sadly!!) Thank you, I've had a few moments where I think "how on earth am I going to cope with 2 children under 2!" But I'm sure I will do just fine!
How is everything with you? Xx
