9 Days Left!!!

Yesterday I had my weekly appointment with my OBGYN. I was a bit worried because my doctor was concerned that Alvin had SGA. He said my uterus was measuring at 35 weeks instead of 37 weeks so I had to see a perinatologist to make sure everything was fine. The nurse said that it could […]

Stop With The Lies

I just finished putting Alvin’s swing together. It has been sitting in his room for like two weeks. It’s really cool. We got the two-in-one, so it also detaches and turns into a rocker that vibrates. I also put his wall decals up today. X helped me put them above the window because I couldn’t […]

My Baby and My Life and Whatnot

So we used to have this awesome habit of cleaning the kitchen directly after dinner. Over the past few months (since Al has been working/commuting for 13 hours a day and I’ve been colossal and tired), we’ve fallen off. I just put the dishes away when I wake up in the morning. Well, last night […]

Four Weeks To Go!!

I just got home from taking X to work. Usually he takes my car, but Al is going to prayer tonight and I’m going to see someone at the hospital so I need my wheels. Sucks that we’re doing homegroup/church separately this week because I haven’t seen him since 6:30 a.m. and won’t see him […]

The woman was originally diagnosed with a grade 2 astrocytoma, same kind of tumor that I have. Her doctor told her she had 10 more years to live. […]

The Ongoings of The Richburgs

So my love is out of the Marine Corps now. He started his new job last week, which he seems to really like, so that’s awesome. And even more awesome that we get to keep Tricare for the rest of our lives, so insurance wasn’t an issue in him accepting a job. Monday we’re moving […]

I don’t think I look this huge in real life. This is really just an exaggerated shot of my baby bump. Blame my camera!

Bun in the Oven

Geeze, it’s been forever since I’ve blogged. I had to wait until we announced my pregnancy, because I couldn’t blog without talking about it. I’m so excited!! I’m 15 weeks now. In 23 days we find out if it’s a girl or a boy. I think it’s a girl. Al thinks it’s a boy. We […]

Brain Tumor Run Weekend

So I just got done baking oatmeal raisin cookies, and now Iβ€˜m watching Criminal Minds. DeAndre is napping, so I’m just lounging around before I have to cook and unpack our clothes. We went to Houston this weekend, and had such a great time. Friday morning I had an appointment at MD Anderson. It was […]
