21 weeks

21 weeks today. It is amazing to think we have a little one who is the size of the bubble in the picture below. This little bubble was born prematurely at 21 weeks and she survived and is now a healthy little girl. Of course, I do not want this baby born now, the chances of survival at this tiny little age are so very very slim ... but it is amazing to think we have a bubble this size with SMR. Oh God, why are we so far away? Oh God, why are we so unprepared?!!! The house is a wreck, though we do have a new roof now. The white plaster goes on the walls this week, and the ceilings go in next week. Then it's time for floors. As long as we have the kitchen and laundry in we'll be okay. Breathe ...

Wow! It's amazing how young some preemies can be born and still survive. But, we want your bubble to stay in a bit longer.

More than 1/2 way there!! Everything will be ok--just nest away and get lots of rest when you can!

Deep Breaths Hee Hee whooo. You will be fine. I think you are reading too much on the internets. Things will all come together. Get that house ready for when the baby comes after 36 weeks!! I love the ultrasound picture. What a cute baby! Things are finally working out for you two.
