All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

The Last 9 Days


I have been a bit quiet lately, and for good reason.

On February 13th, I had my 20-week ultrasound.  Things did not go as expected and I was referred to a Perinatologist/MFM for an ultrasound on February 22nd.  I’ve been blogging about this, but have been marking those posts as ‘private’ because I didn’t want to concern anyone over something that could end up being nothing, and I wanted to hold this close to my heart until we knew what was going on.  I wanted to capture all of the things I was thinking during this time, but didn’t want to share those things until we knew what we were dealing with.  Very few people know about this – we didn’t even tell our parents for various reasons.  It just seemed unnecessary to cause worry for others over something that was so unknown at the time.

We now have a resolution to the situation, which is good.  And the resolution is the best it could have been!  Because we have a resolution, I have now made these posts from the last nine days ‘public’ and you can view them if you’d like.

  1. And So it Goes
  2. Tomorrow is Another Day
  3. Today is Different
  4. Two More Days
  5. Resolution


I’m so glad this little chapter of this pregnancy is behind us!

Here is Wilson, looking cute and HEALTHY!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. Oh Courtney! I’m so sorry you had to go thru this! It’s so scary!! I’m so so very grateful to hear all is well. Thinking of you!

  2. I just read those posts holding my breath the whole time even though you said it was a positive resolution. I’m so sorry you had to go through that and I hope everything goes smoothly from here on out. ❤

  3. So very happy to read that everything is good with Wilson! When this all came up in my reader I knew something had to be going on, but HOORAY! that it seems to be nothing after all. I’m sorry you had such a scary wait, and I hope you get some good relaxation time to make up for it very soon!

  4. Wow, what a scare, Courtney. Ultrasounds can be a mixed blessing sometimes, can’t they? Wishing you and Wilson an uneventful remainder of pregnancy!

    • Thank you, Jill!

      And yes – mixed blessing indeed! One of the things that kept me calm was knowing that our parents had NONE of this when we were in-utero, and most of us turned out just fine. Just imagine what all could have shown up but they never knew about back in the 70’s and early 80’s.

  5. So so glad everything checked out at your appointment!! I think it’s great that you used your blog as an outlet to get your feelings out even if you didn’t publish it right away. It’s hard working through the unknown when the unknown can be so scary. Great outcome though for you and Wilson!

  6. So glad all is well and there’s nothing to be concerned about! What a relief!
