The original Buds were all part of an online TTC community posting board. One day, Worry Bud, an avid blog reader/follower, asked if ladies on the board would be interested in starting a joint blog describing our different journeys in TTC...everyone loved the idea and Bloomin' Babies was born (pun intended)! Today, Bloomin' Babies is made up of some of the original Buds, but also includes ladies from all over the world!
It is our hope that this blog provides a broad view of what women at different phases of the TTC journey go through - the good, the bad, and yes, even the ugly! We hope that you enjoy your time here and visit us often!
We got our Christmas Pictures done and are doing our pregnancy announcement through those. It snowed the day before and day of so there was lots of fluffy snow for the pictures. I am 16 weeks and things are going well. I am feeling great and am sleeping better and having more energy. I now need to get my rear in gear and make it to the gym to keep up my fitness level. I just have been trying to get Christmas shopping, cards and neighbor gifts finished so I will probably just wait till after Christmas to go to the gym! Hope all you have a Merry Christmas and wonderful New Year!!
