Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.


I have come to the realization that we never print a birth announcement. There may never be a first picture or a posed hospital picture. We may likely never get that far. So far I haven't posted many ultrasound pictures. We get one each week but because of the ups and downs I wanted to keep them to ourselves. But this week I want to share. I want to show how beautiful our poor, squished baby is. How amazing life is when it begins to really take form. Even if our little one doesn't make it she (or he) is still beautiful.

I think you can really see in these pics what we are dealing with. There should be a good deal of black space around the baby which would be the sac filled with fluid.

Your sweet baby is beyond beautiful. You are all in my prayers and thoughts daily.

Hi Kristen,

I'm not sure I've ever commented before (I'm bad at commenting), though I've read your blog for quite a while. Anyway, I saw you at the doctor last week and wanted to say hi but I thought that would seem creepy so I didn't. You were with Gracie (goodness, she's even prettier in person!) and I was the tall lady chasing my toddler around the office while my other son was a TV zombie. Anyway, I see from the pictures that we've also used the same clinic.

All of this to say, I am so sorry that things don't seem to be going well. I wanted to say it in person but really didn't want to freak you out (I've never seen a blogger in person before). I've always thought one of the gifts of IVF is the ability to see the early stages of development, including the heartbeat right after it starts. Regardless of what happens, I think the picture of your child is beautiful, and I will keep him/her and you in my thoughts.

Meredith - So not creepy! You wouldn't be the first reader I have run into. :D Thanks so much for the kind words both about Miss Grace and my baby. It's a hard time right now but knowing that people are supporting me means so much! Since you are local maybe we could get our kiddo's together some time.

Beautiful pics, it's such a miracle every time! Continuing to pray for you guys!

I'm so glad it wasn't creepy, it was so startling to see someone I only recognize from a blog. Getting together sounds great. You have my e-mail from the comments!

I commented on the most recent post, but again, good luck tomorrow. I'll be hoping for surprisingly good news.



About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
