My Name is Amanda, I'm 24 from NC. I just recently found out that I am pregnant again and due in September. It was another huge surprise because we were trying to NOT get pregnant! We are accepting it and praying that this pregnancy goes better than my one in the spring which unfortunately resulted in a miscarriage.
Miss Morgan was born on 9/26/2012 after being in labor for 28 1/2 hours and pushed for 20mins. 7lb 1oz and 19inches of pure perfection ♥
I am the "Do whatever you want, it's your kid" kinda Mama. After giving birth and becoming a Mom I have learned that every kid is different, you may want to do something with them..but it doesn't work out. I wanted to EBF but my supply has been shit so she gets formula, but she is full and loved. That's what counts!
