Mildred Jane at 6 Months

Mildred Jane is 6 months old now.  A whole half a year!  I feel like it’s a miracle she’s survived so long with me for a mom.  I couldn’t get anything except serious face when I tried to take her 6 month pictures,  but she was extra smiley when we had family pictures taken a…

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…

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…

27 Weeks

Spot is 27 weeks along now and, based on her latest scans, doing well.  She moved around so much that I wasn’t sure they would be able to get everything they needed, but they were able to tell that Spot has gained 6oz in the last 2 weeks, making her a total of 1lb and…

26 Weeks

Did you know that 26 weeks is an important mark for viability of a baby?  At 26 weeks, if something goes wrong in the pregnancy, baby’s survival rate is 90%.  And I’m 26 weeks pregnant now, which is super awesome considering all the scares the doctors have given us about Spot’s size.  Of course, she…
