About Me

Hey, y'all! My name's Amanda and I'm a 29-year-old mother of 2. My husband and I've been married for 6 years and have an amazing 5 year-old son. We're a proud military family and, after TTC for 8 months, we welcomed Caroline on February 25th via cesarean.

*6/30/15: Appointment for possible PCOS after 2nd month of no period. Surprise! Hcg levels at 1233
*7/02/15: Returned for 48 hour hcg blood work at 2608
*7/03/15: Took HPT - dark positive. Told DH & DS big news!
*7/06/15: Told family big news
*7/15/15: Aging ultrasound, 6 weeks with heart rate of 125bpm
*8/05/15: 1st ob visit, 10 weeks with heart rate of 161bpm

*09/03/15: 14 weeks with heart rate of 140bpm
*10/08/15: 19 weeks with heart rate of 150bpm. Baby still a girl & I'm starting to feel regular movements
*10/13/15: I can feel Caroline's little nudges on the outside. I know they'll get stronger but it helps make me feel more connected to her
*10/17/15: DH felt the nudging! Yay!
*10/28/15: DS got to feel his sister kicking!
*11/7/15: 1st Braxton Hicks contraction

*12/29/15: 31 weeks with heart rate of 152bpm & fundal height of 33 weeks. Scheduled cesarean for 3/04/16, hoping it's not necessary
*1/14/16: 33 weeks with fundal height of 34.5 weeks. Caroline isn't head down
*1/27/16: 35 weeks with fundus measuring on time. Care is head down! Starting weekly appointments
*2/03/16: 36 weeks, fundal height of 38 weeks but no other change. I'm group B strep negative!
*2/10/16: 37 weeks, no change
*2/16/16: 38 weeks, cervix is thinning but baby is breech again
*2/19/16: Rescheduled cesarean for February 25th
*2/23/16: 39 weeks, no change so baby will be here soon!
*2/25/16: Caroline Reign McDaniel arrived via cesarean at 7:41 am, weighing 7lbs, 7oz and measuring 20.25" long
