checking in

Some stuff:


  • i am currently 23 weeks 4 days and am feeling well. i have been very lucky with this pregnancy in so many ways.

  • anatomy scan went very well and we found out we are having a girl!!!

  • to reveal the gender we had a gender cake party: we had the ultrasound tech write the gender down and put it in the envelope, which my mom delivered to the baker with instructions to bake the inside of the cake pink or blue depending on the gender, and we cut it with our families. it was a great way to find out. i was completely shocked because i had been convinced the baby was a boy (for no reason at all, just a feeling).

  • started house hunting a month ago- fun and very frustrating. it has made us realize how much money we DON'T have. freaking student loans!

  • i have been feeling movement since 15 weeks. baby movement got much stronger and more regular in weeks 19-21.

  • have been slacking on housework, which i feel guilty about, but only sometimes.

  • not sure what to do with this blog. i am thinking about transitioning it into a life after infertility blog and focus on raising a new baby, natural pcos management, and crafting? probably too much to stuff into one blog.

  • i have been following my fellow if-ers, but have gotten really bad about commenting- probably for the same reason this blog has gone silent.

  • feeling incredibly grateful for how far i have come in this pregnancy and pray that it continues.

  • i also pray for the women who are still fighting to get pregnant.

  1. Wow - you're having a girl! How very exciting! I love the way you found out that it's a girl - very clever. Myself, I don't know if I could be that patient... If there's knowledge out there, I want to know NOW! :)

    That's very cool that you started feeling movement at 15 weeks. My opinion on blogging? Just tell us about your life! Your pregnancy, your baby girl, your crafts - whatever comes up. Those kind of blogs are my favorite, personally. Great to hear from you, and so glad to hear everything's going so well!

  5. Yay a girl! Exciting. Gender cake party? Never heard of such a thing. How cool. Must have been a neat moment when you cut into the cake.
