  • I keep a diary
    I scrapbook
    I take pictures and save letters

    I record everything about my life
    But I documented very little about this pregnancy

    Because it was not my first

    I had miscarriages and two ectopic pregnancies
    I lost both my tubes
    IVF was my only option and I had little faith

    When I was told I was pregnant,
    I thought, "Yeah, well, we'll see."

    My husband would often ask,
    "Are you going to write anything on Facebook?"

    I didn't for months, not until I knew we were having a boy
    (our beautiful boy) and even then I did it with worry.
    Was it bad luck? Would it wreck everything?

    Now our son is here and I am back to recording everything
    It makes me wish I had more stories and pictures of my pregnancy
    That I had enjoyed the time and had more faith

    But who could blame me?
    I didn't want to fall in love with another fall
