Mental milestone

Today I am 30 weeks, 3 days pregnant. The most pregnant I've ever been! I am one day further along than where I was when the twins were born. This has been a major mental milestone for me, so I am happy to be here. So far, my cervix is cooperating, and I am hopeful to go another 6 weeks or so (or maybe even further!?!). But regardless of when this baby comes, I am appreciating each day this little one get's to spend inside and not in the NICU as a result of prematurity.

Oh WOW. I can imagine how that must feel...to get to one day past "the day". Can't imagine carrying a baby full-term and bringing said baby home right away. I truly hope you get to experience that this time!

Glad to see you're doing well! Hope Drake and Lulu are as well.

I'm glad for you to experience that. milestone I know we shouldn't blame ourselves for babies coming early (hello you twin mommies, you!!) but I think most of do it anyway. If I'd not asked for my extra test, and kept my preemie in longer, she'd likely have been stillborn, so actually I saved the day - but in my head - I will always feel I made a bad placenta. Once I hit the mental milesone with baby #2, I really did relax quite a bit, knowing each day was a day not in the hospital. Not that it turned out that way but at least I didn't have to know about it. Like Caryanne said - I do hope you get to bring baby home with you - that sounds like heaven!!

Is that you? You have the cutest little belly! Glad you've made it past "the day" and hope those babies bake til you're complaining about them!
