The medication discussion

Today I had my appointment with the doctor who prescribed my anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications.  I've been nervous about this appointment because I wanted to know the risks and benefits associated with my continuing medication while expecting.

Things have definitely been easier and more emotionally stable for me being on the medication.  I feel like a better mother, wife, and woman than I have felt in a long time.  That being said, as the pregnancy progresses I've felt the familiar anxiety I felt before when my hormones were out of whack.  I know that recently when I take a bit more of my medication, I feel much better so I wanted to discuss maybe upping the dosage as a standard, but ONLY if it won't harm the baby.

Thanksgiving Recap


Hello everyone! I am hoping you had an amazing Thanksgiving and that it was so very blessed in the Lord. This was the first year in about four that S. and I did not host Thanksgiving. Our sister in love did a fantastic job and we were so glad to be able to make a few dishes, come to her and my brother in love’s home, and just enjoy the day.

Happy Thanksgiving



Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

FET: CD18 Transfer Eve


It's the night before my transfer and I'm sitting here with my husband watching him watch football.  My right butt check is still protesting the injection I gave myself earlier.  I am almost certain there would be a bruise if I actually looked carefully enough.

I'm tired.  I'm ready to close my eyes and have a good night sleep before tomorrow's transfer.  I've done this before.  I know how this is supposed to go.  But man...I wish I didn't feel so nervous.

Tomorrow, if God is willing, I will have little passenger(s) resting within my womb at the end of the night.  I hope and pray with all of me that this procedure works.

Keep me in your prayers all.

Weekend Recap: Adventures in Babysitting



Hello everyone!  After last weekend's amazing trip down college memory lane, I was pretty pleased to take it keep it local.  Friday night, S., Bug, my niece, and nephew joined the church's young adult and youth ministries in an all night Laser Tag event while I kept baby A. and Honeybee at home.  They had an amazing time and my niece and nephew came home with S. and Bug for the weekend.

Friday Frazzle: My Week In Review

Hello everyone! I hope it’s been a fantastic week for you! It’s been a mixed bag for me. Some days have been wonderful. Others, like after the news of another mass shooting, not so much. I’ve been enjoying the link up with Narci, Erika, and Andrea so I decided to continue it. Here is my week in review and a few favorites too!

Why I took my 12 y/o son to the polls



I called the sitter on the way to the house.  Bug had the day off from school.  The sitter was still with Honeybee and baby A.  He was enjoying the day doing what preteens do on a rainy and dreary day.  He was sleeping.  I told the sitter that I would be picking him up in about ten minutes and for him to be ready.

Weekend Recap: 2018 NC A&T Homecoming (Photo Heavy)-Part 2

Hi everyone.  Thanks for joining us for Part 2 of the Weekend Recap.  There was so much to share that we just weren't able to put it in one post.  We hope you enjoy this one as much as we enjoyed experiencing it.

Skate Night with the Family

Hi everyone!  Last night was a pretty cool night for us.  I promise I'd already decided we weren't doing anything.  We don't celebrate Halloween and I wasn't too keen on going out, but Honeybee asked if she could be a "pretty purple princess" and S. mentioned at least showing face at the church's skate event and I acquiesced.  I'm so glad I did.
