Baby Bump: 34.5 weeks in front of a beloved painting by Jane Fox Hipple Well, y’all, I just don’t know what to do in this situation. I’d love to have a baby shower. I didn’t even think I would. You know how our wedding went down: we tried to do everything ourselves, on a budget, […]

Friday, Oct 17th I went in for my biweekly Dr.’s appointment. The Dr herself was out, so I saw the nurse practitioner. The usual weigh-in, pee-in-cup, etc. were performed. Baby’s heartbeat was taken (135,) and the height of my uterus was measured. The nurse practitioner said I was measuring small: 2cm behind schedule. It sounds […]

Print Nugget Update

We had another ultrasound and doctor’s appointment today. Normally they wouldn’t have done another ultrasound at this point, but during last month’s, the baby kept putting its hands up over the heart and blocking it. They wanted to take measurements to make sure everything was developing correctly, so they took another peek today. Everything seems […]

We had an ultrasound on Friday. Everything is looking healthy. They were able to determine gender, information which was slipped to me in a sealed envelope. Because, you see, Blake doesn’t want to know ahead of time. Why, you ask? Well, to give you a little family history, a girl hasn’t been born in the […]

Aren’t you glad it didn’t say we’re moving again? We are in fact, but that’s not why I’m writing this here post. You see, on top of the good news of Hannah getting the tenure-track gig at SEMO in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, she’s also pregnant. I suppose the coupley way to say it is “we’re pregnant”, but […]
