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!


Hello TummyTime bloggers and readers! My name is Kelly and I’m an old hat to blogging for Onslow Memorial Hospital but I’m new to TummyTime. I’ve been blogging for the CuddleBugs blog for a year and a half now. Let me introduce myself by telling you all a little bit about me. In 2008 I married Garrett, the love of my life. He is a Marine and of course I followed him here to Jacksonville, NC. I have a graduate degree I don’t use and instead I’m the happiest stay at home Mom ever to our daughter, Nora, who is almost two years-old. Garrett recently got home from his second deployment and surprise, surprise! (okay, not really) I’m pregnant! Garrett and I are happily expecting our second child on or around October 1st. We’re hoping this is the second of six pregnancies for us. Yes, you read me correctly. We want a BIG family! Nora’s birth was pretty unique and interesting and I’m dying to know what’s in store for this pregnancy and birth. I’ve heard every single pregnancy is unique and I totally believe it. Since I found out I was pregnant I’ve been reading all about other people’s pregnancies on my Droid phone application, What To Expect. They have a forum section where people can write about their experiences. My husband might say it’s a new obsession of mine –and I might have to agree with him. It’s so fascinating to read (for example) about how other people’s water broke –especially since mine the first time was relatively uneventful (well, aside from the meconium). I’m excited to be here and can’t wait to share my own story and hear about yours!
