There was this status update going around Facebook recently where you were assigned a number and then you had to update your status with that many "fun fact" about your pregnancy. I'm generally not one for the mass status update trends on Facebook but I really wanted to share some facts about my pregnancies. So, I've decided to take to the trusty blog to post these things.
1-I found out I was pregnant with Avery on October 15, 2011, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. I found out I was pregnant with Harper on May 15, 2013.
2-I only took 1 pregnancy test with Avery. I still have it. I took at least 3 with this pregnancy, just to be sure. I have those too.
3-I had morning sickness with both but never tossed my cookies. Eating was the only thing that made me feel better. Needless to say, I gain more weight than I should.
4-Avery's name was picked out well before we knew she was a girl.
5-I will be delivering at a different hospital with Harper.
6-Both pregnancies were intentional-no "accidents."
7-We tried to announce our pregnancy to our families creatively. Avery they each received baby related gifts. With Harper we made up a special photo announcement.
8-We did fun gender reveals each time. Avery it was pink cupcakes, Harper it was pink silly string. Both times we knew ahead of time.
9-It took us 4 years of marriage to decide we were ready for a family. Avery celebrated our 5th anniversary in our arms, 3 days before we lost her. Harper was just a tiny bean celebrating with usin my belly on our 6th anniversary.
10- Avery was born at 39w3d. Harper is scheduled to arrive via csection at 39w3d.
11-I was induced with Avery and ended with a csection. Harper will be a scheduled csection.
12-During Avery's csection, my leg fell off the table and I could feel it happen. I told to doctor and she told the nurse to pick it up. It was quite comical.
13-I am horrible at documenting my pregnancies with photos.
14-My sweet tooth takes over while pregnant.
15-My favorite part of pregnancy is just watching my belly contort with the baby's movements.
16-We plan to stop having children after Harper. 2 girls is just right for us.
To my blogger friends, please feel free to share facts about your pregnancies. I'd love to read your posts too!
