Random Monday

Whew. What a busy few days. My parents came to visit, my mother-in-law then arrived to stay the night and watch Will for us while we went to the Michael Buble concert, and then Easter! It was a whirlwind of five days.

It was a lot of fun, but I am definitely feeling the effects of it today. Will is still having random wake ups some nights and sleeping through others, but his schedule has been off kilter with all of the excitement, so naps have been shorter, bedtime later, wakeups earlier, you get the idea! I am feeling very tired today and hoping that he decides to take a decent nap today so I can also rest.

I am also. . . drum roll, please. . .

24 weeks pregnant today. That's viability, folks. Yes, I realize that there would still be many hurdles to overcome and a lot of prayers needed if Emma was to arrive today or any time soon. I have a firm talk with her every morning, reminding her that Mommy's tummy is the best place to be for now and that she can come out in just a few months. She seems pretty content pummeling away at my bladder in there, so I think she'll be hanging out for awhile to come.

When you have a miscarriage(s), you feel so very helpless, because there is nothing that can be done. The body has to do its job and there is little to nothing that even the most modern of science can do to help. My body failed me so many times that getting to 24 weeks, where finally, medical professionals could take over if needed, is a very comforting thing.

I hope you have all been doing well. . . I am off to check on you and see what I have missed in your lives these past few days!

Wow! I remember when you announced that you were pregnant! And now, here you are at 24 weeks! How did that happen :)

Hope the next 16 weeks continue to be uneventful.

That's a wonderful milestone!

I totally understand... it's hard to just have to sit back and let your body do its job when it has failed you so many times before.

You are making wonderful progress! You are about 9 weeks ahead of me, so I read your posts and look forward to reaching those mile markers myself. :)

WOO HOO!! Congratulations on viability. You'll make it to many more milestones, but this is a great one nevertheless.

Now sit down and take a rest. You deserve it.

Viability gave me a huge sigh of relief too. Every week, Matt would ask me what our odds were that week. And remember, baby girls actually do better on viability stats than boys, so you are just a smidge ahead there too.

Viability! For some reason I feel like I can exhale now too, and I didn't even think I was that worried about you. :)

Also, I am totally jealous that you got to go to a Michael Buble concert. I love his music.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is awesome to see you have reached viability with your daughter. What an awesome milestone!
I saw Michael Buble last month and loved the show.

Well done on 24 weeks. I know what you mean about pregnancy after loss. As far as you get it doesn't mean as much until the docs would actually do something to save your baby if needed. I am glad Emma seems so content in there.
