Susan and Jeremy Have a New Daughter

Bernard @ May 28, 2005, 10:03 pm -- [Week 28, Day 5]

We haven’t really been blogging much about other people’s pregnancies, but Susan has had her picture in one of our blog entries. Susan’s pregnancy had been progressing at about 12 weeks ahead of Agnes’, and last weekend on Sunday, Susan delivered about 5 days early. Anything from 38 weeks to 42 weeks is considered “full […]


Our Twenty-Seven Week Appointment

Agnes @ May 18, 2005, 9:49 pm -- [Week 27, Day 2]

Todayís appointment started out with two blood tests, one for the glucose tolerance test and one for my hemoglobin level.

Negative fFN Test

In our last OB appointment, the doctor did a test to see if fetal fibronectin (fFN) could be detected. Fetal fibronectin is a protein that helps hold […]


Baby Stuff

Bernard @ May 2, 2005, 9:46 pm -- [Week 25, Day 0]

We’ve started to get some gifts for the kids, so we decided to show what kind of stuff we got. There’s a new link on the side of the page called “Baby Stuff” which shows pictures of everything we have so far. No, we don’t actually have the cribs yet, but they are on order […]
