Final Countdown

Another week, another round of appointments. All good news – L & Tiny ‘passed’ the NST with flying colors, and BPP looks good – adequate fluid, good blood flow in umbilical cord, practice breathing. Thanks to everyone for weighing in on the scheduled cesarean vs. induction question. While it’s not 100% yet, I think L... Continue Reading →


Holding Steady

MFM appointment this morning revealed that Tiny is still tiny but still doing well by most measures: adequate fluid, good blood flow in the umbilical cord, moving well, practicing breathing, with an excellent heart rate. The placenta is showing slightly more signs of dysfunction, but is still working effectively. For now, it’s stay the course.... Continue Reading →


Remember back a few months ago when I kept losing consciousness randomly throughout the day and it was really fucking terrifying? And then I had my heart and my brain and all kinds of things tested, and all of them were normal? And the neurologist scheduled me for one last test (for dysautonomia) and put... Continue Reading →

Time immediately speeds up once you have a kid. It’s just the way of things. This is, of course, in addition to the usual acceleration of time that happens as we age.

His overall size is still two weeks behind (he’s measuring around 28w) but last week he was measuring around 27w so . .... Continue Reading →

The Tiniest

We were supposed to be sweating buckets in Indianapolis today. We are not. On Tuesday, we packed up A and headed to an ultrasound appointment to check on Tiny's size. This was the first of the additional monitoring L would be getting due to the gestational hypertension diagnosis. At the US, I wrangled Ansel while... Continue Reading →

Little things, and bigger ones

I got Ansel the cutest/weirdest shoes on sale online. We decided he needed some slip on non-sandal summer shoes, so I found these. Please take special notice of the sparkle poop emoji, which is really what sold it for me - although A's favorite is the rainbow, and L is partial to the Unicorn.  As... Continue Reading →
