28 weeks!!!

In 4 hours I will have hit my first big bed rest goal... making it to 28 weeks :) It's a huge milestone for the baby's survival rate and the rate of long term health problems, so needless to say we're very excited :) Things are going okay here... the baby is doing great but I have a very large blood clot (the size of a "baby's head"... yikes!!) that they are a little worried about and I'm having contractions on a pretty regular basis that I'm taking medication for. So we're just taking things "day by day"... it's become my motto which is a little frustrating.

Jamie finally allowed me to stand up for long enough to take a picture last week, so here you go :)

In other news we start moving out of our house this week. The movers come on the 10th and then we are officially homeless until our house is finished. Keep your fingers cross that we actually have a house this summer :)
