Mildred Jane at 8 Months

Mildred is 8 months old now!  It doesn’t seem like she should be that old already, but that’s probably my lack of sleep talking.  Mildred still isn’t sleeping through the night, but at least she’s only getting up a couple times most nights.  She’s always wanting to eat.  But at her age, that’s a good…

I Need a Nap

Somehow Mildred manages to sleep all the time, but I still don’t manage to get a nap, or any sleep at all, unless someone else is here to watch her.   It’s like she knows that I have laid down and she doesn’t like it. Fortunately, there are lots of people who want to hang out…

Welcome Spot!

Today was supposed to be a post about my 37th week of pregnancy, however baby Turner, henceforth known as Mildred Jane, decided to show up early. My water broke about 8:45 on Thursday night, and Mildred was born on Friday morning.  And because everyone always wants to know, the official statistics were as follows: Mildred…

35 Weeks

Yesterday marked 35 weeks of pregnancy.  It was a pretty calm week at the office, which was much appreciated since Spot found another way to cause problems. For some unknown reason, my blood pressure was high at last Friday’s NST (Non-Stress Test). Spot looked fine, of course, but the increase in blood pressure meant that…

Spot has been cooking for 34 weeks now. And with plans to take her early, we are on the final countdown, looking at weeks instead of months.  It’s making me feel a bit panic-y. Thankfully we had the baby shower last weekend.  That gives me a couple more weeks to figure out what we still…

32 Weeks

Spot has been cooking for 32 weeks now.  We’ve hit the 8-month mark!  And thank goodness. I am super ready to be done with the pregnancy part, even if being responsible for another human for the rest of my life seems more than a bit daunting. I had my 3-hour glucose test last Friday, along…

30 Weeks

I’m 30 weeks along now and have managed to keep myself from being hospitalized for a whole week since my release. Yea!  I am still having pain on my right side, and my liver enzyme levels are still off, but the doctors can’t seem to find a cause.  At this point, they believe it to…

28 Weeks

Spot has been cooking for 28 weeks now.  That’s 7 whole months!  She still doesn’t have a name, but we do have it narrowed down to about half a dozen options.  That’s a good thing, right?  I’ve already been to one appointment for her this week, but I’ve got another tomorrow.  It’s the glucose test,…
