    My Dirty Little Secret

    April 17, 2014 by rabbit 1 comment

    A year ago this month, I was 26 Weeks pregnant with Hannah and learning to accept the fact that I was on couch rest with Vasa Previa. My To-Do List only partially completed, I slowly and painfully let go of my strong desire to get things done and embraced the art of life in the [...]

    Hannah’s Birth Story Part II: in the NICU

    February 13, 2014 by rabbit 0 comments

    I knew at Week 26 we were going to have a c-section. So the advice came early and continued until the day of delivery: get up and walk once you’re in recovery. Walk through the discomfort. Walk when all you want to do is lay in bed and eat ice chips. It will help with [...]

    July 23, 2013 Davey and I woke up at 4:30 am to Jack Johnson singing Banana Pancakes. Today is the day!!  If I wasn’t 35 weeks pregnant and hooked to an IV, I would’ve jumped out of bed and moon walked across the faux wood floor. We have waited a LONG time for this day [...]

    Meeting with the Specialist

    June 10, 2013 by rabbit 5 comments

    Davey and I were counting down the days until today: an ultrasound and a meeting with Dr. Redman, a specialist for pregnant women with high-risk diagnoses. While the fetal vessel hasn’t moved, as suspected, Hannah looks healthy and beautiful! She’s in the 77th percentile, weighing in around 3 pounds, 7 ounces. Dr. Redman was very [...]

    I love sweets. It’s a curse I inherited from my mother. She ate a steady diet of Hot Fudge Sundae Cakes from Big Boy when she was pregnant with yours truly so it’s no wonder that I have chocolate coursing through my veins. Big Boy Hot Fudge Sundae Cake via Foodspotting.com I was rather surprised [...]

    When it’s your birthday, you get the royal treatment and the celebration lasts a week long. But when it’s your birthday AND you’re on couch rest??? Fogettaboutit! The day started off in a special way: a visit from my dad and Annette just after the roosters crow. Dad prepared us home fries and scrambled eggs [...]

    Reading: A Passion Rekindled

    June 2, 2013 by rabbit 0 comments

    Once upon a time, I was an avid reader, devouring a good book within a couple of days before going onto the next. I honestly can’t remember the last time I picked up a piece of fiction until recently. I lost myself within the pages of Water for Elephants this past week and finished it [...]

    In about seven weeks, we’ll get to meet our Little Miss Hannah Banana and I can hardly contain my excitement! I’ve been on couch rest since Friday and while I can happily say I haven’t been bored once, the time isn’t necessarily whizzing by. So…I decided to savor it because so few times in our [...]

    Vasa Previa Plan

    May 20, 2013 by rabbit 3 comments

    Bed rest this weekend caused me to slow down and savor the stillness and beauty around us. Our house sits on a quiet dead-end street. Last night, the frogs sang their nightly melody while piano music spilled from the sound bar. I was still enough to hear the tick-tock of my favorite patina’d clock. And [...]

    This weekend, I’ve been laying low until I get the chance to meet with my doctor and come up with a vasa previa management plan. Davey’s so thoughtful. He went to Bordines this morning and picked up a hummingbird feeder and a couple of bird feeders to place outside the window so I can enjoy [...]
