As I’m sure you’ve guessed, this sucks.  There is no easy way around it.  Will and I are grieving the loss of what we thought we had.  And it’s sad, really really sad.  We are working through it together.  Yesterday I had my D&C surgery to take out the “products of […]

Doing our best

We found out today that we lost our baby.  Our raspberry is gone   No heartbeat.  We’re crushed.   Everything was perfect at our 6 week ultrasound, and now at 8 weeks it’s gone.    Goodbye Ralphie Clovis Throckmorton “Morty” Coe Atkinson.  We loved you even though we never met you.

A sad day

gummy bear
Yesterday we were 8 weeks prego!  Our baby is the size of a raspberry or gummy bear  (or kidney bean as some websites say, but raspberries and gummy bears seem so much cuter).  He/she doesn’t have much of a tail anymore (way to not be a tadpole child of mine!)    The baby […]

8 Weeks

melting pot
Last Friday was our 7 week mark, and our baby is currently the size of a blueberry! The baby is about half an inch long (doubled in size from last week).  Our genius embryo is developing about 100 new brain cells every minute- wowzers! Will took me out to a […]


first ultrasound
We had our first ultrasound on Wednesday (8/8/11) and saw the heartbeat!! YAY!  Our baby was measuring perfectly at 6 weeks and 3 days.   Will came to my work, and our nurse, Gayle, did the scan for us.  In 3 more weeks we go to my OB where we will […]


a sweet pea
Our baby is 6 weeks old today!  He/She is about a quarter of an inch long, and the size of a sweet pea (or lentil, or bb pellet depending on what website you are checking out).   It (seems so impersonal, but easier than typing out he/she every time) has tripled or quadrupled […]

6 weeks

go cards 1
As many of you may have noticed (stop hitting reply all!), there has been an email argument about which team our child will root for (Kentucky or Louisville).  Let’s just go ahead and get it out in the open. Even though we live in Lexington, without a doubt there will be another Louisville fan in […]

U of L

Sooooo my Dad and Uncle decided to look back through generations of Coe names to “help” us find a family name in case we have a boy.  My Dad came up with Throckmorton…but wait!  Throckmorton is related to kings! and vikings! and all sorts of royalty!  THANKS Dad.    And then Uncle […]

So, as soon as we found out we were pregnant, I had to hatch a plan to tell my family.  I didn’t want to just call, so we waited until the next weekend to go in town and visit.  Joey was my first victim… he was the only one home […]
