By request...


28 weeks, 30 weeks
(trust me, the scale says I'm definitely bigger!)

One thing I dreamed of doing during the season of all our miscarriages was to have a professional photo shoot of maternity pictures. We never did that during my pregnancy with Russell. I guess I learned that you never know what the future will hold. This season of a woman's life is so fleeting and I wanted to have it captured. I've contacted a photographer in the area whose rates are resonable (i.e. less than $300 per sitting). We're still working on the details with that.

In addition to that, my long time (no, not 'old'...) friend, Alysun, is coming to visit next week. She'll be 35+ weeks pregnant by then. What a friend! As a photographer, I'm sure she'll bring her camera as well:-)

Oh how I would LOVE to hear your whole story if you do not mind sharing it with me! You give me hope...after four miscarriages I feel like I am so by myself sometimes but then I find people on rare occasions like yourself who have gone through more miscarriages and have gone on to have a baby! How awesome! I would love to know every diagnosis, every treatment/failure they have tried for you! I saw you have MTHFR...i do too! Although my doctor in chicago dr. coulam thinks IVIG, folgard and baby aspirin will be enough and that I dont need lovenox. I have tried progesterone supplements for 1-2 of my pregnancies that ended in miscarriage. I am curious about endometrin but afraid my doctor will not give it to me! please tell me all you can! We are starting this coming cycle so I dont have that long to get everything readY! Thanks!
