About MeI am a 25 year old mother of 2 little boys aged 4 and 5. We live in the beautiful pacific northwest in the state of Oregon and love every bit of it. I enjoy horses, skiing, biking, and spending time outdoors with my boys. My 4 year old Noah has Asperger's and despite that he has been one of the greatest joys of my life. He's the smartest kid I have ever known! My 5 year old Jonah is the artsy one with a love of karate and playing pool. He's a bit on the ADD side but he's a real emotional dude! Despite their names we are an atheist family, but maintain traditional moral values and provide a loving home without the belief in God(s).
I became pregnant in July 2013 but lost the baby sometime in late July. I didn't know the baby had died until I went to my 10 week appointment August 20th 2013, and was told there was no heartbeat and the fetus only measured 6.5 weeks.
I was shocked and devastated but wanted to try again. I opted to miscarry naturally. I didn't lose the baby until September 8th, 2013 and bled nonstop until November 18th. I started bleeding again November 25th and was told it was a normal period. My period due December 23rd never started and I took THREE positive pregnancy tests. I am shocked this happened so quickly after the intense bleeding I went through.
I am hoping this little baby decides to stick around because I cannot wait to meet them!
Ultrasound on 1/17 showed a 6w6d baby with a wonderful 126bpm heartbeat. The relief I felt was unbelievable. Here's to many more healthy weeks!
2/6/13: Got to see baby again, moving around, with little arms and legs! Saw a beautiful little hand with fingers!! I love this baby so much! Can't wait to see him/her again on the 18th! :)
2/18/13: Fell more in love with baby today. He/She was moving around so much! Got to see the arms and legs and everything. A wonderful heartbeat and so full of energy!! I cannot wait to meet you! I couldn't be more thankful today for the beauty I have seen is amazing!
My Birth PlanNormal hospital birth, vaginal with epidural.
Had epidural with 1st son and none with 2nd because he came out too fast. I don't care to go through that again and much preferred the epidural! My previous births were very different from one another, the first I had severe preeclampsia and almost died, I was throwing up the entire labor and in the hospital for 6 days. 2nd time around was a 30 minute labor and went home the following morning (10 hours later). I am apparently very strong though because my first son took 2 pushes even with sickness and impending death, and my 2nd took only one push. Hoping this baby follows that trend and just falls out :P
We are also not finding out the gender and it will be a beautiful surprise at birth.
