Introductions are always a bit awkward for me to write. I never really know how to sum up in a few short paragraphs who I am. However, I am excited to be writing for Babble and to share our lives with all of you .
I have been married to my high school sweetheart Ryan for just over 7 years. Together we have three gorgeously fun-filled children who are known online as Big P (5), Princess R (4) and Babe E (2). Our pregnancy history has been riddled with pain and complications including 9 miscarriages and the ‘stillbirth’ of our son Triton [I quote that because medically he is classified as a miscarriage] so I come with a lot of knowledge of the darker side of pregnancy – a topic that is not often discussed.
Another thing I should let you all know is I am not currently pregnant. We are not currently trying to get pregnant either. So, why am I here on Being Pregnant? Other then bringing the conversation of the not-often-discussed topics around pregnancy, Ryan and I are struggling with a facet of pregnancy that other marriages are too.
I want more children & he is unsure.
You see, I have a big case of “baby fever”. A strong desire to add more children to our family, a feeling that “someone is missing” and balancing my feelings with my husband’s is an ongoing and continual discussion in our house.
Thank you so much for the warm welcome and I look forward to sharing more about our lives with you!
