Molly Mathews

My name is Molly. I have been married for 5 years and have two children. A 10 year old step-son, a 2 year old daughter and I am currently 26 weeks pregnant with a boy! I live in the town I grew up in and have a large family that I see often. We all live close to each other right now and I hope it stays that way as we draw a lot of support from one another. I have been a nurse for 6 years, mostly in the emergency department, and I love my job. Since young childhood I dreamed of being a nurse and a mom and here I am both! I couldn't have imagined how difficult the journey would be but neither could I have fathomed the Joy that would come from both. Becoming a mom has made me into a better person in many ways and a bit of a crazy worry wart in other ways! Having support from other moms who have been there before or are there with you makes all the difference in the world!

Although I currently live in Hubert, NC, I am not originally from the area. I am a true blue yankee! I was born and raised in New York with the snow and crazy weather. Living in the south is a huge change for me. What brought me here? Good Ol’ Uncle Sam! My husband and I are high school sweet hearts. We grew up in the same small town and lived about 5 minutes from one another. He is 3 years older than me so technically we are my high school, his college years sweet hearts; if you can follow that thought. After a couple years of Nascar school and working in Nascar my husband decided to join the Marine Corps. At this point I had just graduated from a 2 year college with my associates degree and was on my way to Champlain College in Vermont. I stayed there for a summer session and the fall semester before we were married January 2, 2010. Now here we are, newlyweds and expecting our first child! We technically already have our first born though, our 1 year old golden retriever Bo. He is definitely my baby but he will love having a little brother or sister. We are due March 8, 2011 and unfortunately my husband is scheduled to deploy sometime in February or March. Fingers are crossed that he will be here for the birth! We have a complicated pregnancy because I have uterus didelphys. That means I have 2 uteruses and this comes with possible complications. We have made it 20 weeks as of October 19 with no problems (knock on wood) and we should find out soon (October 25) if we are having a boy or a girl! I am so excited to be apart of this wonderful blog family. Stay tuned to share the excitement and learn more about me and my family!
