Melissa's Pregnancy Journal

StorkNet is very pleased to bring you Mel's pregnancy journal.

Melissa (31) and her husband, Tory (32) were married in October 2007. After an early miscarriage, Mel conceived again. Penelope Faith was born four days overdue, on January 2, 2011, weighing 6 lbs, 13 oz. After a traumatic childbirth and postpartum period, Melissa and Penny (and Daddy Tory!) are doing well!

Join Mel as she takes us week by week through her pregnancy.
