So Sad. Try, Try, Try Again.. Right?

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Went in for my 8 week ultrasound yesterday. No baby, no heartbeat. Just a gestational sac measuring 5 weeks. So all along that sac was causing my symptoms and bloat, but my baby never formed. I know it's a chromosome issue, nothing I did, nothing I could of done, etc. But I'm still so sad.

I fully intend to try again right away. I am just waiting now to miscarry on my own. I've been bleeding since yesterday, but it isn't severe, very mild. Not sure how long it could take. I am so ready to get pregnant, have a healthy, happy pregnancy, and get my take home baby.

I'm Back With News

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Wordpress just wasn't what I thought it would be, and I'd all but quit blogging over there before I realized it was because I just hate the interface! So I'm back.

Aidan is 2 years, 2 months, and some days old. He is talking more, running around, and just generally being the best little boy ever. Love him to pieces.

Since the last time I was here I got pregnant again (August 29th I got my BFP). We packed up, moved to a bigger house, and then I started bleeding. I was diagnosed with a Subchorionic Hematoma at 9 weeks and I bled daily until I lost our angel at 15 weeks. It was just too much.

But we were in our new house, picked out for our family of 4 and suddenly we're back to a family of three. We made it through the first few weeks (thanks to Buspar for me, and beer for Mike, and Aidan snuggles for both of us). Once I got my cycle back we wanted to try again, so we did.

And on February 12th, 2012 I got this:

Due October 23rd, 2012! Now let us just hope for a healthy one this time, okay?? I'm only 4w1d right now, but I'm way too excited to keep it a secret. I'm so excited to be starting this journey again!

4 Weeks:

How far along? 4 Weeks 1 Day

Total weight gain/loss: 0 - I'm enjoying this number while I can!

Sleep: I can't get enough. The exhaustion hit early this time. I'm yawning all day, and by 9pm if I'm not in bed I am literally falling asleep on the couch!

Best moment this week: Getting my BFP! Even though we had been trying, it's still a shock to see it happen so quickly.

Movement: Just gas bubbles moving around in there ;)

Symptoms: Hungry all the time, tired, heartburn.

Food cravings: No cravings yet!

Food aversions: None yet.

Gender: No idea!

Labor Signs: None

Belly Button in or out? In.

What I miss: Nothing

What I am looking forward to: First ultrasound March 12th to see the heartbeat!

Weekly Wisdom: RELAX! Worrying accomplishes nothing.

Milestones: Umm... getting pregnant! lol

I've Moved

I swore I had updated this but Blogger must have eaten my post, which is a big part of the reason I moved to Word Press! By all means come on over and check us out. I've missed all my blog buddies!

Christmas Card Time Has Arrived

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

I'm a little behind the ball this year, but it's time to think about Christmas cards already!
I normally send out generic cards that I pick up at the store, but this year we are wanting to do photo cards to show family and friends what Aidan looks like now that he's one year old!
We have used Shutterfly multiple times in the past. We've ordered calendars, we ordered our birth announcements through them, and of course we've ordered prints as well. I've never had anything bad to say about Shutterfly, so of course when I saw their Christmas Photo Cards it didn't take much to twist my arm into wanting to order from them.
I've been looking around for a while now and I can't figure out which type I should get!

Option 1: This would of course have a picture of Aidan front and center!


Option 2: This could be either a family shot, or a single shot. I was thinking more family style, as shown above.

Both are 5x7 cardstock, and I just know they will be wonderful quality if my past experiences with Shutterfly have anything to say about it! I do believe I prefer the folded card, just so I can personalize each card without having to include a seperate note for each, but I'm leaving it up to you guys! Any preferences about which one I should get? Any ideas on what type of photo I should use in my cards?
