The Captain and I had a lunch date with a sweet baby boy today. He looks perfect in every way, measuring a week ahead, and is definitely STILL a boy. Placenta is closer to my cervix than they’re comfortable with, so we have another scan at 28 weeks to check its position. I won’t say… Read More Lunch Date with my boys.
I am SHOCKED!!! The Captain’s status update on Facebook was too good not to share: The predictions came in around 80% girl – 20% boy, but I believe that Not-stradamus herself cinched the deal when she declared with authority that we’re having a girl.

In the lab, the researchers placed high- and… Read More High Fertility and Miscarriage
On this day last year, I started contractions around noon while out to brunch with my mama and Pumpkin, and went about my day mostly as usual.
