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!
Mr. Explorer Bud and I had our 20 week ultrasound and are excited to announce what we are having........
The little guy looked great in the ultrasound and was very calm. He is measuring a week ahead and all his organs and measurements look good.
As for other pregnancy related things, I think I have finally started to feel the little guy moving around the past two days which is really fun. It kinda feels like sideways bubbles moving around my stomach!! Last week we started our Hypnobabies class and have been enjoying that and doing lots and lots of practice my self-hypnosis.
I have been feeling great and am working on eating healthy to prepare for a good labor!!!
