24 weeks baby, 24 weeks!! We did it. Baby Boy is officially viable and the medical professionals can now help him if he arrives early. This is a massive milestone!
When i found out i was pregnant, i really couldnt imagine being this pregnant. For a long time i thought we wouldnt ever get past 21 weeks. But then i got to 22 weeks and i was like ‘ok we may do this’ and now, bam! 24 fucking weeks!!!
I dont normally swear (on here) but ive been hoping for this day since we lost Milo in 2014, so forgive my potty mouth!
When you grieve a loss, theres a moment when you wake up and you forget you have lost, and then it hits you again. Ive experienced a lot of mornings like that. But lately, ive experienced something very different…
When i wake up, i forget im pregnant for a few moments, then he moves and i think ‘ooosh thats bad wind….hang on no, thats the baby!’ The feeling of elation upon realising this every morning is wonderful, and then the worries kick in and i get on with my day.
Today was no exception, i forgot, remembered and then remembered it was V day too.
As im carrying a viable baby now, i thought it high time to mention to Facebook land that im pregnant. L has mentioned it, as has Mr Me but i never have. This was my post…
I popped on some photos from the 3D scan and the gender reveal video as well as some new photos of my 24 week bump…
As you can see from my VERY cheesy grin, im very pleased with myself!
To celebrate we picked up some baby bits i ordered earlier in the week
After collecting our purchases we went for pancakes as a treat.
My mother in law offered to buy us the cot yesterday (thank you so so much) so we went to have a look at some. I was going to hold off buying one but i found one i loved so a deposit has gone down on that and a chest of drawers with changing table on top. Its beginning to feel very real. I did have to walk out of the shop and build myself up before purchasing them as i do still worry about tempting fate!!
So now he has;
- Transport home (car seat)
- A pram
- A place to sleep (moses basket and cot bed)
- A place to sit (swing chair)
- A way to keep clean
- Storage for his clothes
Thats the main things we need so im feeling pretty good, the planner in me is satisfied. For now.
As we have put the house on the market, we’ve spent the rest of the afternoon de-cluttering the house ready for the photographer tomorrow, and viewings on Tuesday. Ive also found a house i love on paper, and im going to book a viewing ASAP. So lets hope ours sells quickly, the agent seems very confident!!
I cannot stop smiling!!!
Love, Little Miss PMA xxx
PS – you can start buying now!
