Hello! I'm Stephanie. I'm not your average person. I don't take hardly anything seriously (I'm not a class clown,but I'm not 100% into hardly anything). I'm very chill. I love arts and crafts. I sew, felt, paint, etc. I'm lost without my outlet. I love kids. I believe in gentle parenting. I don't care what you do with your kid though as long as they are loved and taken care of. I like rock music. I Effin love tattoos and piercings. I have plans for tattoos (I keep spending money on ball joint dolls though x-x haha). I stretched my ear lobes to a 0guage and I want to go to a 00. I love dying my hair unnatural colors. I'M NOT A BITCH. I don't know why women are proud to say "I'm kinda a bitch tehehe" but eh, I am not into confrontation. Don't assume I'm trying to be a bitch, I just suck in social settings sometimes. I'm very much a loner, I don't have many friends and never felt like I needed more. I love comedies and I don't really watch any other type of movie. I love fantasy and would love to go to a Ren Faire. I watch some anime but again, don't take it as seriously as some people do. It's funny but people confuse me for a stoner but I've never smoked in my life... just very chill. haha I may add more later but who knows.
Some things about me;
>I'm bipolar and currently unmediated as we're trying to conceive our second.
>I used to cut but haven't for a good while.
>I've been over weight since kindergarten, my family isn't very good with health... but when I got pregnant with my daughter I tried to change that. It's a long battle but I wont' stop.
> I also have issues with hypoglycemia so it's hard for me to work out TO lost the weight.
> My parents split when I was in between kindergarten and first grade. My Gram helped raise us since.
> My Mom was in a car accident when I was in 8th grade and ended up paralyzed because of it.
My husband and I had one interesting start. We met online while I was in high school, I was 15 years old. My friend made a role playing website that I helped him run. Hubby's friend introduced him to the website and we met on there. We talked on the site, then on IMs, then with web cams, then on the phone (I got a job just so I could get a cell phone to call him haha). After I graduated high school, he flew to PA and we drove to LA together. I stayed down there for a semester of college before deciding I wanted to go back to PA. I gave him the choice to come with me or not and he did. We lived together for a while before deciding to get engaged. We had a two year engagement. We got married May 23, 2009. It was just a little party but we didn't care, we just wanted to be married.
I absolutely married my best friend. I couldn't imagine my life without him.
After 6 months of trying, I finally got my + 11/14/12!
Mar 9th: It's a....
Mar 5th: Elective scan. Found out gender! Having a party on the 9th to reveal the gender.
Feb 19th: Had some bleeding and went to the ER. Everything looks fine, my cervix burst a blood vessel so nothing serious. Dr. decided to use this u/s as my anatomy scan so we're paying for an elective to find out the gender.
Jan 11th: Saw baby again. Due date right on track:
Dec 26th: Saw baby! HB 164 and everything looks good:
Nov 25th: Control line lighter than test line
Nov 15th: Positive Digital Test
Nov 14: Positive Pregnancy test
Nov 2nd; Positive Ovulation test
This time I took a picture of the "pregnant" test, "made" a magic the gathering card, and slipped it in one of his deck sleeves. Then I asked him to teach me how to play a new game he started playing (called TheSpoils). I was soooo giddy waiting for him to deal that card, I was grinning like a fool. He got embarrassed 'cause he thought I was laughing at his teaching me, I had to keep making excuses. Finally, after like 30mins, he drew the card. He got a confused look on his face, read it, eyes bugged, pulled the paper out, read it, looked at me, looked at it, and breathlessly whispered "are you?!". I pulled out the digital test and showed him. Then he couldn't stop kissing me and got teary eyed.
For his parents, I ordered my daughter a big sister shirt she's doing to wear on Xmas day.
For my parents, I am making a calender with pictures of my daughter... Dec's will be of her in her "big sister" shirt. The picture of the positive test is on the EDD day of the calender.

A few weeks before I turned 19 I realized that I had missed my period. I took a test and it came up positive. I was floored. I was in college, living with my (now husband) boyfriend in a motel room and everything was shit. We talked and we considered abortion for a few hours. But we decided we couldn't do that to our child.
I was extremely young and stupid; I didn't have insurance and didn't think to look up a free clinic... I never went to a doctor, even after I started bleeding. I didn't know anything about a D&C. I was extremely lucky to have had no complications from the loss, although it was at least two months along.
I am still upset about the loss but I feel like my angel knew it wasn't a good time.
We started trying for our second in June. Got a faint positive July 25th and 26th. I would have been due April 12, 2013. Then July 28th I started spotting a little. I figured it was implantation bleeding and went along my business (my husband was in the middle of being discharged and our whole life was turned up side down)...but the bleeding didn't stop and I started bleeding harder. We were packing our stuff (we were being thrown out in two days) so I didn't have time to go to the doctor. I bleed for over ten days but had no complications otherwise. This was a baby we tried for so I was completely heart broken...
I have been over weight my whole life. Nothing really kicked me into motivation like getting pregnant with my daughter though. I just knew I didn't want my baby growing up with the same problems I had. So I started watching what I ate and eating less. My whole pregnancy I only gained 5lbs. With the help of breast feeding and eating right, I dropped almost 30lbs after labor (my daughter WAS almost 9lbs though haha).
Life has been kicking my butt, but I need to get my shit back together. Trying not to gain much during my second pregnancy and kicking it into high gear after baby's born!
I started getting stir crazy at home, especially since my daughter was getting older and needing me much less. So I decided to start actually using all the fabric I had collected and actually start making stuff... I thought I'd start trying to make a bit of money since I was a stay at home Mom. I opened my shop and although it's been a bit difficult at times, it's definitely worth it!
