How We Stay Connected During Deployment

How do you stay connected to your husband when he is thousands of miles away, for six to eight months (shorter for the Air Force, longer for the Army)? My hubby, B, is a Marine. He was deployed soon after we found out I was pregnant with our daughter. We were told the squadron would [...]

And I love them just the same (My two very different BFPs)

And I love them just the same (My two very different BFPs)

My first pregnancy was a complete and total surprise. My two very different BFPs Well, not a complete surprise.

First Trimester with a Toddler in Tow

First Trimester with a Toddler in Tow

“Mommy, don’t throw up.” That’s what my two-year-old has been reminding me, periodically, since I had the misfortune to get sick in front of her a few weeks ago. Yes, I said a few weeks ago. Apparently it was that traumatic. The first trimester of pregnancy usually sucks, any way you look at it. But [...]

My husband and I had been married for about five months when we decided that we wouldn’t necessarily try to get pregnant, but we wouldn’t prevent it either.

ClearBlue Easy Fertility Monitor

ClearBlue Easy Fertility Monitor

Our decision to try to conceive came to us quite quickly during the 2008 holiday season. We went from, “Maybe we’ll get started in 2011,” to “Let’s get pregnant THIS summer.” No one was more surprised than me! When my husband and I got hitched in September 2007, he had the “baby rabies” really bad. [...]

Our Journey With a Journal

Our Journey With a Journal

From the moment I found out I was going to be a mama, I made the decision to share the journey with my future child. I did this through words. I bought a journal that could be for either girl or boy and I began to write. There are a lot of uncertainties through pregnancy [...]
