We’re officially past the 28 week mark! The first big goal is now accomplished. Now each day is precious as he develops at a rapid rate. Pack on those pounds and grow, grow, grow!! Tomorrow marks the half way point to the 34 week goal. 80 days total.. it’s crazy to think about.
I am still hanging in there. It’s getting a little harder now since the weather has been so nice (but wayy too hot lately) and there’s family in town. But last night my friend Ellen put together a surprise 28 week party and my room was full of laughter and fun for the evening. Thankfully , the days continue to fly by and before I know it a week has gone by and it’s Friday again.
I asked one of my original Labor and Delivery Nurses (they still visit me 🙂 ) to honestly tell me if anyone expected me to make it through the first weekend I was here. She said No and that in most cases the baby would have been born.. and the outcome would have been bad. It’s kinda cool, because the nurses tell me that when they call to check in, they often ask if I’m still here. It’s a good feeling to know that I’m defying the odds.. and everyone is excited and rooting for us! Honestly, I didn’t have a thought that I wouldn’t make it this far. I was certain and determined.. and well, we’re here!!
So there’s nothing really new to report. The status is staying the same. I’m sill leaking, no contractions, no pain. The baby moves a lot and his NSTs have been reactive each day. Amazingly I’m not sore yet either. It will be interesting to see how much strength I’ve lost after this is over. Oh! The glucose test I was to take over the weekend got postponed and the three day diet was started on Monday. So I take the 3 hour test early on Thursday morning. I’ll be sure to report my results.
