30 Days And Counting…


As many of you know, I am pregnant with my 5th baby!  So hard to believe!  As of today, there is 30 days and counting til his due date!  This is extra exciting for me because my 16 month old, Emmaleigh, decided that she needed to make her appearance early and was born 31 days before her due date.  We were very fortunate with her because even though we were scared and didn’t think she was ready to come, she knew that she was!  Even being 4 1/2 weeks early she still weighed 5 lbs 13 oz and need absolutely NO assistance with anything at all!  No oxygen, no NICU time, absolutely NOTHING!  She was perfect, thank God!

Another thing I am extra excited about is that out of 5 full-term pregnancies (I also suffered 2 early losses several years ago)… this will be my first biological boy!  I do have a step-son that I love just as if I had given birth to him, but this will be the first boy I’ve given birth to.  I would have been just as happy with another girl as long as the baby is born healthy, but it will be cool to experience the differences!


So, now that it is getting to be “crunch time”, be prepared for updates on how things are going!  I am very excited to share the rest of my journey with you guys!  Keep me in your thoughts and prayers!

  1. I know the heavy feelings you probably have at times. I’m having a hard time conceiving as we speak. I wish you much joy and God bless.

    • Thank you so much, Jill :-) I am sorry you are having a hard time conceiving… I myself went through the same thing for nearly 16 years, so I know the feelings associated with that well. I went through a lot of testing and fertility medicine, etc. I could not afford the more expensive options to help me conceive. I suffered 2 losses during those 16 years as well. Thank God when I had gastric bypass surgery back in July 2005 and lost most of the extra weight that I was carrying my fertility started working again…. in overdrive! LOL… The baby I’m about to have is my 4th baby since that time. I wish you much luck in your journey to conception and if you ever need anyone to talk to or vent to, please just let me know.. I’m right here! <3
