A non-update update

22 weeks 5 days – 121 days to go

We are so close to “viability week” and I am counting down the days. Only 9 to go till I hit the elusive 24 week mark. By no means am I ready for little man to show his face, it just makes me feel so much better that if something happens his chances for survival will just get greater every day past that 24 week mark.

This biggest thing that has been happening since my last update is that I am feeling him regularly and on a daily basis which I am loving. E still hasn’t felt him yet but I am hoping it will be soon. Each day it seems like he is getting stronger and it’s just a matter of time before E and G will get to experience it. I can’t wait.

We also made our first baby purchase; the crib! It went on sale and I just couldn’t pass it up. We were originally going to buy a cheaper one because I felt like the price was extraordinary but when it went on sale, I couldn’t say no. It was delivered this weekend and E says he will put it together next weekend so we’ll see. I am getting to a point where I feel like I need to start purchasing some things but still finding it hard to pull the trigger.

My best friend has told me she is throwing me a baby shower which is so incredibly sweet and I wasn’t expecting it since not only is this my second baby but it’s my second boy. We decided that it would be a co-ed get-together more than a baby shower which I am incredibly happy about (I hate attention focused on me).

Nothing else much going on. My next appointment is in 10 days where I get to take the wonderful 1 hour glucose test (which I’m sure I will fail and have to take the 3 hour test). I luckily get to see my little man again though 🙂 Hopefully he will be cooperating and let us get the pictures of his heart that we need.
