28 weeks

28 WeeksFriends, I am now in my third trimester!

This pregnancy has certainly has been a roller coaster. Never again will I want to repeat weeks 4-18. Throwing up everyday is not my thing, nor is neglecting work and staying in bed. What made it worse is that I still had dogs to walk and a house to run, given that my husband is only home for about 2 waking hours a day. I was sick and on my own. Good riddance to those days!

28Weeks-2Once I was into my second trimester, I began to feel like myself again. Most importantly, I could return to my store and the gym. I finally returned to a productive routine. Waking up, walking the dogs, working, going into town to mail and deliver items, going to the gym, coming back home, walking the dogs, working, cleaning the house, napping, walking the dogs, making supper, working, falling into bed, and finally, seeing my husband around 10 pm. This schedule has continued until now, and I hope that I can maintain it until my due date. 

PoppySure I had HG, placenta previa, have gained weight, a shoe size, and stretch marks, but now, I am feeling so great. Above all, baby appears to be healthy and even measuring 3 days bigger than its due date! (Here he/she is at the 27 week scan.) People in general are so supportive, and rather than worrying about if and when we should have children, I now have one less decision to make. Now that I am definitely attending school this coming fall, I believe that 2016 will be so bright. If this was my only gift this holiday season, I would be more than happy with that.

  3. I’m glad that morning sickness didn’t last long for you. I had morning sickness too. It did make working and commuting much harder. Nice routine that you have. Lots of walking is good.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
