Get Informed About Planned Parenthood

I’ve come across some good resources regarding the Planned Parenthood debacle and collected them here for your information. Get informed, whether through this post or other sources. Don’t believe the oh-so-many lies that we need Planned Parenthood or else all hell will break loose regarding women’s health care. It already has. I’m hoping…

Pregnancy Diaries: Weeks 1-8

So I used to think that “brain drain” was not a real thing. I was wrong. Apparently a good number of my brain cells are being rerouted to the task of growing a baby. -- I sent one of my girls to her room after she was a bit crazy in the car and told her I’d be up in a little while. Not five minutes later, I headed up the stairs. I could n…

King, Party of SEVEN!

We went to Kyle Field for PJ’s 30th birthday…and brought another little teammate along! King Kid 5 is due in April!   We are thankful for this new little life! Thanks to Shep McAllister (and a random Aggie at the game) for the pictures.…

Full-Term!

We made it to 37 weeks! In the words of my sister, I’m a “good little baby oven.” Baby is quite happily breech, so we have scheduled a c-section for March 29. I suppose he could still turn around, but that would require him to stop trying to come out through my ribs! :-/ My friend Jaimie threw a lovely Skype baby shower for me. I got to…

Provision

As we prepare for our baby’s arrival, God is mercifully teaching me about His perfect provision. Last month, I read Half the Sky after watching the documentary last fall. This book examines numerous issues related to the oppression of women and encourages progress and advocacy through sharing some heart-wrenching stories. When I read the…

34 Weeks

34 weeks! Making progress! I am so ready to hold my baby and tickle his little feet instead of having them kick me in some really uncomfortable places. Two weeks ago, my OB noted that my belly growth had slowed and dropped off of the normal measurements, so she wanted to check on baby’s growth with an ultrasound. I had that today, and was…

Wonderful, Merciful Savior

In the fall of 2009, I began having some health problems that all had the same consequence: infertility. It was a devastating time, as we weren’t even “trying” to have kids yet, but it looked like the road ahead would be long and difficult. During this time, the Lord used the song “Wonderful, Merciful Savior” to minister sweetly to me. I…

32 Weeks

I was so excited to move out of the 20-numbered weeks, especially since at week 24 my due date was bumped back two weeks, landing me back at 22 weeks again. Our little guy is doing great! I have been feeling much more pregnant over the last few weeks and have seen and felt some very strange movements from baby! My NICU brain is also calme…

Baby Update

29 weeks! Third trimester! The end is in sight! The good news: our little man is doing well. All of my sonograms have been normal. I passed my glucose test—how I can drink so many vanilla Dr. Peppers and eat so many holiday sweets and not end up with gestational diabetes is beyond me, but I’m thankful nonetheless. I’ve found a new OB here…
