35th Week: My First Mother’s Day?

I am River’s mommy but I am not quite sure if I am already qualified to be greeted “Happy Mother’s Day.”  I have yet to hold River in my arms and I look forward to that day. 🙂  No one is calling me “Mommy” yet, so maybe it’s presumptuous of me to count myself in…

33rd Week: Happy 7th Anniversary!

For our 33rd week checkup, we learned that there was something not normal with River last week that our doctor didn’t disclose to us.  She must still want to observe and be sure before letting us know.  Thankfully, River’s ultrasound this week turned out well, that the doctor said I didn’t need the steroid injections…
