37 weeks plus: Baby updates!
This week has been an emotional roller coaster!  Zachary is already keeping us entertained and on our toes, so I wonder at what his little personality will be like when he arrives.   I guess I should start with our appointment last Thursday.  I go in twice ...

Showers for Zachary
This is a long one! Zachary is one loved little boy, already!!!  In the last few weeks, we've had two beautiful showers thrown for us.  I can't even begin to express how blessed and lucky we feel that so many people want to love on us and our little baby bo...

Nursery, viability, and such
Well, here we are.  I am 26 weeks and 3 days.  Last week, when we saw Dr. Bellantoni, he told us that at 26 weeks our baby has an 80% - 90% chance of survival if he were to be born now.  So, if my water broke and they had to get him out, it would possibly g...

The 21st week
I battled with myself all day as whether to post something tonight or not.  I felt like writing about it would jinx us, but then I had to remind myself that I don't believe in jinxes.  So, I am getting over it and writing a little something.  Writing always...

20 weeks and counting...
Sometimes I wonder at the wisdom of sharing my whole life of grief and pregnancy here on the blog. I am always getting reminders that yes, this has been a good decision.  Ok, sure, a whole lot of people know a lot of my personal business, as much as my fami...

Thoughts & Nursery
Tomorrow is the big day!!!  At 7:00 am, we are getting up, heading to the hospital, and having a baby around 9:00.   I'm trying not to think of the million things that could go wrong.  I'm trying not to think about the last time when we walked out of that h...

Mother's Day
To all the moms out there, whether your child is here on Earth, or waiting for you in Heaven, Happy Mother's Day! It's a tough day for a lot of people, and I learned this week that part of the origin of Mother's Day stems from baby loss.  Isn't it a little ...

I took this pic of The Blands, Christmas 2008, just a few weeks before Mr. Dave was diagnosed. Let me tell you about a very special dad.  His name is David W. Bland, and he is my husband's father.  Five years ago today, Mr. Dave lost his battle to pancreati...

The day our lives changed - take two
Life is weird sometimes, isn't it?  Who would have thought that I'd be writing a second post about this...the day we found out we are pregnant.  When I wrote our first post  when pregnant with Jackson, a looooong 9 months ago, I had no idea the turn my life...
