37w2d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

I don’t feel great. I’m wondering if my body is gearing up for labor very soon. I have had consistent period-like feeling in my groin since last night. I was so nauseated I couldn’t sleep, and g...

37w0d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

I’m 1 cm dilated which is progress from last week. I figured those contractions I’ve been having weren’t for nothing! I gained 2 lbs in the last week and I’m measuring two weeks ahead of where I ...

3/14 in This Tornado Loves You

I received an unofficial offer for that job I applied and interviewed for! I’m calling the director soon to iron out details, so we’ll see. She didn’t say anything more than that yet. I asked the...

Didn’t miss you, dudette. I’ve been having Braxton Hicks contractions on and off for awhile now but last night it was about every ten to fifteen minutes and pretty painful for about three hours. ...

Friday (the 9th) was my birthday. I’m 28 now. How am I this close to 30?! We only have two years left to plan the trip! My twin and I want to take a fun trip for our 30th birthday and we were thi...

36w2d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

I am having a hard time functioning. I can’t think. All I have energy for is… sleep. I slept 12 hours on/off and still have nothing to give. I had an appointment Friday and everything was looking...

35w2d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

I have contractions in the middle of the night for the past few days now. Last night I woke up and had them and couldn’t sleep for a long time. I’m really exhausted. They aren’t too painful and g...

interview in This Tornado Loves You

It’s funny how I was boo-hooing about “omg how will I find a job” and I landed myself an interview for next week, the day before my birthday. The kicker is that I’m almost 9 months pregnant. I so...

34w4d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

I had an ultrasound today. My fluid level is the same as it was last week, so it’s barely above the threshold but I’m okay with that as long as it’s above! She does very big movements lately and ...

brain stuff in This Tornado Loves You

I was diagnosed with ADHD (finally getting help) and… Bipolar 2. I wouldn’t have guessed. I’m going to start medication soon after the baby is born. I’m not breastfeeding so I’ll be able to get ...

I don’t ever say how much I completely adore my husband. And he loves me with a ferocity and gentleness I didn’t know could coexist. I love how he feels against me when he holds me. I love when w...

2/22 in This Tornado Loves You

My 23andme results came back. I always thought my sister and I were most likely fraternal twins, but we’re actually identical twins! That’s so neat! Our kids are cousins and genetically half-sibl...

33w4d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

I had an appointment. My fluid level dropped again. AFI of 6. I have to keep having weekly ultrasounds. My doctor said she doesn’t want it to drop any lower. She didn’t elaborate on what would ha...

job woes in This Tornado Loves You

I don’t know how I’m ever going to get a job. I applied to a job that I’d be a great fit for. I have experience doing almost everything listed under the job description. I have an MA (after I gra...

33w0d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

I’m exhausted. I’m uncomfortable. I wake up at night from being so uncomfortable. Even if I sleep solidly at night (for me that means waking up only once or twice), I still feel so fatigued that ...

Dear diary, Today I almost lost it over Girl Scout cookies. I feel absolutely crazy. I probably am. Love, Krystal

31w2d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

Good news! My amniotic fluid levels are now up to 11! It’s in normal range now! I’m so happy about that! I went back to work today but I have to stay off my feet otherwise, which will be difficul...

30w6d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

I don’t really like being on bed rest. All I’m doing is snacking and fretting about how much isn’t done that needs done. I pushed myself yesterday even though I wasn’t supposed to, and I ended u...

30w3d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

What a day. Ended up in labor and delivery again. I called yesterday because something felt… off. I’d been feeling that way for a few days but I chalked it up to anxiety. I noticed at work that ...

30w1d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

Oh, dear. I’m in the last ten weeks of pregnancy! Maybe less. Maybe a bit more. Oh my gosh. I’m freakin’ out! I don’t have everything I need to get for Maeve. Her room won’t be done for a few mor...

29w1d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

I’m fucking miserable. So sick like I was in my first trimester. It’s not the same stomach thing I had because this feels like a different kind of nausea. I’ve been trying to push through it and ...

I ended up in the hospital last night for the stomach flu. I caught the stomach flu that had been going around my family. Well, I managed to not catch the first one. But the second stomach flu… y...

You’re pregnant, and have a cold and the stomach bug at the same time. Ugh

27w6d in Baby Stuff, Part 3

She gets hiccups a whole lot! I believe she’s also head-down. Still quite active and I’m left wondering if she ever sleeps! I’m always sick, still. It hasn’t really gone away but it has come and ...
