19 Days to the Edge of Viability

A quick post...

Everything still looked good during Friday afternoon's ultrasound. The Kiddo looks like s/he is starting to add a little bit of fat/chub - very adorable.

I've been feeling movement more regularly throughout the day for the past few days, which helps me to worry a (tiny) little bit less. I am still so thrilled every single time I feel something. I've had R put his hand on my abdomen to see if he can feel it, but invariably the Kiddo stops moving then. I know it's probably still way too early for that, but he's been right beside me through every bit of these last 9 1/2 years, so I want him to be able to get to experience this (happy) part of it, too.

I have two major papers to write for school between now and Thursday. I don't know why I keep doing this to myself. I like school, I really do. Yet I procrastinate, which is why this will be a short (for me, anyway) post.

The peri's office is closed on Friday, so for the first time we are going 10 whole days (gulp!) between appointments. If not for the regular movement, I don't know that I'd be able to survive until next Monday without another peek.

I am behind in commenting, so please forgive me. I will catch up after the papers are done.

Meanwhile, I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Glad to hear you are still chugging away! I don't know if I would have any paper writing abilities left in me, so I'm very impressed that you have battled IF and school a the same time! Now get back to your paper writing!

Good luck with the papers! I have two left to write before finals week so I am miserable along with you on this one.

Yay! I missed a lot of posts but am still following when I can. I am excited you are feeling movement! Your hubby will feel it soon...so cool! Good luck on the papers!

Oh exciting times! My wee one used to go quiet when his dad put his hand on my bump too - I used it to my advantage if he was being particularly active when I wanted a snooze ;-). It's a fantastic moment when they DO feel the movement - magic!

So glad that you're enjoying the butterfly kisses-- much to be thankful for right about now. So glad that you're in such a happy place.

Hope today's appointment is just as good. That you get your papers done soon. And that R gets to feel the kicks too. I'm also so looking forward to that stage :)
