24 weeks!

October 25, 2009 at 2:06 pm 1 comment

Today is a milestone cause 24 weeks is usually the time the baby can survive on their own if born. It still seems so far away from delivery so I sure hope not! But being in the hospital this week made me realize that of course anything unpredictable can happen when you least expect.

I am praying that I sail through this pregnancy without any major issues developing. So far so good, but the fact that I am even heavier this time around (by 20lbs or so) is concerning, plus older, plus I had higher blood pressure before pregnancy and so on. But just praying. Next up is the diabetes test scheduled during my checkup on Nov 10th. My ob advised me to just be healthy anyway – exercise, healthy food etc. But I really haven’t been. Its been too crazy busy to carve out time for anything in terms of any kind of official exercise time and so I am just hoping that running around with my toddler helps. Toddler btw has transformed into a little challenging monster overnight. I cannot count the number of times I’ve thought, oh boy. If I had gone through with that FET in february and had my baaby right about NOW – will I have had a hard time! At 18 months DD was an angel – not so much right now.

Baby nu,ber 2 in the mean time is a lot of fun – I had a precious time last night pressing on my tummy and baby responding back with a kick each time 🙂 pregnancy really is a wondrous time in a womans life and the only REAL time we ever multi-task. It is mind boggling to me that I am doing all these things from making decisions to working to keeping up with a toddler and all the while not even for a minute does my brain neglect my baby’s needs. If only the other part of my brain was this amazing and tireless and efficient! I had a thought the other day while driving, do men have this part in the brain too? The part that controls pregnancy? Like what would happen if you transplaanted a man’s brain into the woman’s body? I wonder.

But brains aside, God is truly amazing in how He creates human beings. Even knowing all the biology of it and the amazing journey we’ve had still doesn’t make it less mind-boggling!

    Congrats on meeting this milestone!
    I hope it will be a distant memory by the time you deliver for real.

    Terrible two’s in full force? So far we’ve been spared the worst, but knock on wood.
