Ben woke up about 30 minutes ago screaming with gas pains. I think that he's sensitive to milk protein because every time I eat milk or cheese etc and then feed him a few hours later he'll be screaming. He's not lactose intolerant or sensitive t... Read more

The night after I updated everyone last time my throat hemorrhaged from my tonsillectomy. I lost half of my blood volume before they put me under to surgically fix it again. It was so scary because I couldn't breathe from all the blood. Then I c... Read more

Well let's see, since we last talked I discovered I have not 1 but 3 birth injuries and I'm seeing a specialist. Ben grew! He is now 12 weeks old tomorrow and he is 24 & 1/8 inches long and 15 pounds 8 ounces! He had his first round of vaccines ... Read more
A Migraine and Cluster Feeding...
Thursday, October 06, 2016      8 comments

For those of you who might not be familiar with the term cluster feeding is when a breastfed baby feeds way more often for a couple days to increase the milk supply for a growth spurt. This is a very intense thing because it's 24/7 for those cou... Read more
Benny's Name...
Sunday, October 02, 2016      5 comments

I realized through a question on my last blog that I haven't posted Benny's middle name. I won't post his last name of course but his first and middle is Benjamin Charles. I called him Baby Bean before I knew for sure he was a boy (I thought he ... Read more

Benjamin is such a good boy! He sleeps most of the night but wakes about 3 am until about 4:30-5 am to eat and be changed. But he sleeps from 11 pm until then and then from about 5 am-7 am usually. He also takes a pretty big morning and afternoo... Read more

I found out Monday that my tail bone was broken while delivering Benjamin. They not only didn't set it at the hospital which I was in from Wednesday of last week until Saturday, but they didn't even tell me they did that. I was also discharged w... Read more

Could you all say a prayer and a praise for me? I had a very traumatic birth experience on the 15th although, praise God, we're both ok now. Basically they induced me on the 14th, a week late, and I had to have a medication to dilate me, a folly... Read more
Hopefully getting induced tomorrow. Please pray for us!

With any induction the risk of c-section goes up so please pray just for God's plan for us and for a healthy and happy momma and baby afterwards. Thank you all so much and I'll update when I'm home!... Read more
Baby Watch 2016 Update:
Thursday, September 08, 2016      8 comments

I'm still measuring 42 weeks & my cervix is behind the baby's head so my Dr doesn't want to totally induce until next week because of the weight of risks. So he swept my membranes & then I felt very sick, almost passed out (no joke), vomited & n... Read more
Prayer Request...
Wednesday, September 07, 2016      6 comments

I need prayer. Not only is it Benjamin's due date and nothing is happening, which will lead to a decision on whether or not to induce labor, but my mom (the only one that can work right now as I haven't been able to) just got fired from her job.... Read more

As we are waiting for Mr Benjamin's arrival we are in prayer. I don't know if you have all heard or not but a boy that has been missing since 1989 was recently found. Jacob Wetterling's family finally knows where he is but they are in mourning f... Read more

I'm very grumpy this evening. My doctor preformed a non-stress test since my blood pressure was a bit higher than it has been (143/76) and I'm having contractions but I'm not feeling them. They're pretty good ones and Benjamin is handling them w... Read more
Not Quite Yet...But Do You Have a Prayer Request?
Monday, August 29, 2016      5 comments

Just waiting on God's timing for Benjamin's birthday. I am kind of hoping for Friday because Jesus saved me on that day, 8 years ago. But any day would be great. It'll be Thursday or Friday at the latest. I appreciate the well wishes and prayers... Read more
Special Weekend Update...
Saturday, August 27, 2016      5 comments

As most of my regular blog readers know I usually don't have the time to post on the weekends. But I'm done with school until mid-October so I decided I'd just take some time. I have a very special way that I'm going to announce baby Ben's arriv... Read more
