Sorry, I'm a little excited today. We made it to 24 weeks. Still not out of the woods entirely, and anything can still go wrong, but it feels good to have made it this far. I hope so much my little Nombie continues to grow, thrive, and come home alive in December.
To celebrate we started looking at baby stuff. It was OVERWHELMING, and SCARY. I've been looking at stuff online, but actually going into a store was so different. I felt out of place, like I didn't belong. It didn't help that there were parents, pregnant women and kids everywhere; not to mention the complete chaos they brought with them. We bought a few cute onsies, a baby book, the boppy we ordered online came in the mail today too... it's surreal having them in my house. We'll look more and shop more in the coming months, assuming things go well, but this was a start.
And now I'm exhausted. Whew.
