The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

The two week wait

And so it begins!!

I ended up getting positive readings with the OPK on Tuesday & Wednesday, so at this point I think we've officially cleared O-day. Now we just wait.

I have a massage scheduled for Saturday (i'm finally cashing in my mother's day gift!), and the last of the Bradley babies celebrates his first birthday on Sunday so we'll have a fun-packed weekend to help keep my mind off of the waiting game. I'm armed and ready with lots of Early Response tests, which read as soon as 6 days before your period is due--that's June 30th for me. I love to take pregnancy tests, so you know I'll be testing early!

This is a picture of my first positive test with Roscoe, 10 dpo:
Basically, it was so so faint that I could barely make it out, and everyone else was quite skeptical. Anticlimactic! But a line is a line, and the next morning it was a tad darker. Here is a picture of the tests that followed....and there were actually MORE than this (many more, thanks to the dollar store), but these show the progression:

I still have all my tests. Maybe that's weird.

Did you keep your positive pregnancy tests?


  1. I still have "the one",it's in a drawer until I can figure out what exactly I'm keeping it for! I have the baby now, I should be able to let it go right? No.

    Good Luck! Sometimes I think I'm ready for number 2, but for now I'll just live vicariously through you :)


  2. I need to stop trying to look at the pictures before I read the post because it tricked me into thinking you were prego already!! Lol I'm exxxxccciiited!!!! Can't wait to hear about a new niece or nephew!! <3

  3. How exciting for you! I have a picture of the one and only positive test I ever had... You'd think out of all the negatives I had, I would have kept the first positive!

  4. I kinda of wish I had... I took 6 since I was sure it wasn't for reals. What an exciting time! I am so ready to go for another but the hubby wants us to wait another year=(

  5. J-
    You are possibly the cutest and funniest person I know!!! But remember, I must know as soon as possible if your efforts were successful!!

    love you

  6. I just happened to look at my tests tonight as I was clearing a few products out of our bathroom still gives me chills to see that first very faint line!! I'll never throw them out!

  7. Yay! It looks like i'm in good company then! :)
