Last day at work... (38 weeks)

Here I am. Sitting at work, with the usual Friday events and leading up to thanksgiving we're talking all about Thanksgiving travel.  Turned out to be a much more interesting day (and week) then I thought.

I was called in to work WUTV on Thursday, haven't worked this show since we transferred Beastie to our Surrogate!

My goal was to go get my tires re-balanced at Costco this morning before work. They told me to show up when the doors opened so I could be in and out since there were no appointments available. "About an hour," they said.

3 hours later, I got to work...

They didn't pull my car into a bay UNTIL I asked to see the manager...some customer service...RAGE!

Back to baby life.
This week, for our OB appointment on Wednesday, we had made a little progress.  Now measuring in at 2+cm and something more than 50% effaced.  We had a little guessing game. Guess who was right?  Obviously the one with the most baby experience. Either way, we all were very confident on what progress would freak us out. 
Safe to say we know where our limit of freak out is.
 And here I am looking down the barrel of the last week at work. The last day before the first day of the rest of our lives with a baby.  The greatest anxiety has either come and gone, OR its just buried with the antici

-pation of what's to come.  We leave early Saturday morning. Tonight its hanging with my parents as they roll on in and we prep the car for the journey. Oh, ok. Now I feel it. Thinking about packing up the car with the baby seat...whoa.

Stay tuned to Instagram and Facebook...I'll be as social as I can but you know. Baby.

National Coming Out Day

I totally didn't even realize today was national coming out day! We took a picture to mark the occasion.  A lot of people post and share their stories today.  Sharing their struggles and their triumphs over the hurdles, or even walls, surrounding the ability to live their truths.  Dustin and I have very different stories of our coming outs.  He's been living his truth for just about a decade before I came out to my family and more importantly to myself.  Coming out is not for everyone and today is certainly not meant to give you anxiety about coming out or not. You might find yourself in a variety of situations; from being a public personality, a conservative family, your own fears and so many other possibilities. Its not always easy.  For some, yes, its easy, you grow up in a family where you know without a shadow of a doubt that you'll be accepted for who you are.  We know, better than most, that its different for everyone.  Most of all, you do you, we'll be her

Week 24: Viability...

A lot has happened in the last month...seriously A LOT. "So why did you wait so long to post, Ryan?? "  Because I was busy!  Schedule changes at work, pushing hard to get our renovations finished, baby showers, renovations, much happening. Let's start with travel....I don't want to bury the lead story here. We went up to Wisconsin for our 21 week anatomy scan.  Dustin flew up on a Wednesday for the Thursday morning appointment. Unfortunately July is a big vacation month for my department, and save for asking co-workers to change their vacation plans with their families...I stayed behind. It was going to be hard, but I kept telling myself that its just pictures. I will have the REST of my life to spend with Beastie.  This is a cool appointment, but its just an internal photo shoot.  What really sucked was that they wouldn't be able to shoot any pictures or video in the ultrasound room.       Fast forward to the morning of the appointment.  I tex
