almost 34 weeks!!

This has been a ridiculous emotional rollercoaster of a fortnight.  (I've always wanted to work that in somewhere).  I don't know what it IS about February, but it just doesn't seem to be our month...

February 5 - 1st anniversary of losing Jonah
February 10 - 1st anniversary of losing Noah
February 11 - Keith's grandpa passed away, flew out of state for his funeral
February 11 - a family member experienced a miscarriage
February 16 - my great grandmother passed away, leaving tomorrow out of state for funeral

Can it just be March yet?  It will be like a new leaf.  Isaac is still moving around like crazy - on his same routine every day - and we will finally have another ultrasound in a couple of weeks!  I'm exhausted most of the time, but have been running on adrenaline this past week.  I still have heartburn daily, nausea most of the day, and I'm still not ready for his arrival!  Next week a dear friend is coming over to help me nest in the nursery, so after that I'm sure I'll feel a TON better.  I just have to get through THIS week.  :(

EDIT: Isaac ended up being born in February, also, to remind us that things are not ALWAYS bad and there's no such thing as bad luck OR superstition.


  1. I cannot believe you are delivering next month! I'm so excited for you. I know February was really hard. :(

  2. I'm sorry you feel this way about the month of FEB. I was born on the 6Th. We sometimes don't realize how much strength we have, and we get an extra boost because were women. I'm sorry you have been on such a roller coaster ride this month. You have something very special to look forward too..

  3. What a difficult month for you!! So sorry to hear of your family members passing away... that makes February even harder. Joey had two different due dates, the 12th of Feb and then VDay, which either way made it hard for me too. I have lost track of time and now I am wondering if your son is born!
