YEA!!! We finally made it to 24 weeks! I am THRILLED to be this far along. Somewhere in my crazy mind, THIS was the week to make it to.. Even though I KNOW babies born this early, would still struggle I knew that once we made it here he WOULD have a chance.. And really, that's all we ever want right? Is a chance? I feel like with each week that passes, I am relaxing more and trying to find the "new me" in all of this.. For so long, IVF and gearing up for IVF or wishing we would do another cycle were my life and now I am wondering how do I fit in with all of that? So much going on in my brain these days..
Another big thing is how much time are we going to spend in TX? From what it looks like, not much. Not that we planned on being there for a super long time anyway, but with all the changes going on at hubby's job, it's cutting in to the amount of time he will have available to be gone from work period. We want him to be able to be home to bond and just enjoy Greyson before he has to return to work, but we don't want to have to leave right after Greyson is born either, ya know? UGH... So still trying to come up with a good plan for that.. Mainly it's going to depend on when he is born I would imagine....
Not all is ho hum though! the wonderful Rebekah is hosting a baby shower for me!! I am so honored that she is coming down from GA and hanging out with me! Not only that but we are making it a baby shower/get together for any surrogates (and intended parents!) in FL that want to meet up! I am so excited for the chance to meet others that have traveled down this same road, I am counting the days until Sept. 8th!! I like the idea of the shower/get together, because I feel like the pressure is off of me and no one is expecting a pregnant belly since they know my situation. I'm actually really looking forward to it!
See told you not all ho hum! My little great-nephews are still with me (Help me Lord!!) that 2yo is a handful I tell ya! He keeps me on my toes all day.. I have them for a little while longer (about 2.5 more weeks) and then they are heading back home to VA.. I sure am going to miss them when they are gone (but I am going to get some much needed rest too!,LOL!) So as you can see lots has been going on over here! Up next: recheck of Greyson's heart (another anatomy scan) on Aug 8th and next OB appt is Aug 24th (glucose test is that day too) until next time!
