Our Journey to Triplets: The Next 12 Weeks

Read part three of our journey to triplets HERE. I healed pretty quickly from my cerclage. Other than my incision opening after the staples were taken out, I was told I was the poster child for an abdominal cerclage. Matt became my nurse and clean and packed the hole in…

The 4th of July | Family, Fun, and Fear

While the 4th of July makes you “ooh and ahh” it makes me want to run and hide. I don’t know when it started, but my fear of fireworks is real. Call it a phobia. Call me crazy. My anxious, nervous self cannot handle it. I am terrified. The Things…

Our Journey to Triplets | In-Vitro Fertilization

My husband and I met later in life. I was 27 and just divorced. He was 28 and still living with his parents working a great paying job, saving a ton of money for his future. Which shortly became our future when he proposed just 11 months later. In…
