It's Baby Day.

Well today is baby day. I won't lie, I'm freaking out just a bit. I hate having surgery, my goal this time is to not start screaming 'Oliver I can feel them cutting me open!' I can be a little dramatic :)

She's already called dibs on my Bump Nest!
Today is the culmination of over two years of trying, crying, celebrating, and praying. So many emotions have gone through me, but the main thing I feel today is humble. The journey that I've gone through to bring another baby to this world has connected me with so many other women, lots of whom have no idea what it's like to struggle and the many who do. I've cried along with so many of you at the babies we've prayed for and lost over the last few months. 



I've joined the March for Dimes organization and I will be participating in the April 12th walk in Dallas at White Rock Lake. This is my first year walking for the babies, but I can't think of anything more fitting to dedicate my time and efforts too. I've been so touched by so many stories and women as I'm sure most of you have been. 



So from now until April 4th I will be talking about this organization and hoping to raise money to help the premature babies. My personal goal is to raise 3,000 dollars! I am asking for your help to spread the word, share this with your friends, donate if you can, and lets help save these babies and lessen the burden placed on their families.  You can donate here and if you would like to join a walk of your own you can get info here

  26. Congratulations! Enjoy this moment.

    The March of Dimes is such an amazing organization. After 6 weeks of bed rest in the hospital, that is 6 weeks not setting a foot on the floor, my son was born at 26 weeks, weighing 2 lbs 4 oz. I have never cried and prayed so much in my life. I am not exaggerating by saying that for the first 2 years of his life I rocked him to sleep every night and cried because I was so thankful. We now have a happy, healthy 6 yr old.

  33. I've enjoyed following all of your pics on IG and FB the past couple of days. Aiden is so stinkin' cute! and you look fabulous for just having a baby - already up on your feet and just being happy. Really inspiring.

    I saw your post today about your girdle and was wondering how you like it? Is it different than wearing Spanx? And does it hurt your incision or stomach area at all?
