I have reached yet another milestone this week. I turned 23 weeks this past Tuesday and I am one week away from reaching the first milestone of viability. Viability just means that if a woman was to go into labor early, 24 weeks would be the gestation where doctors would actually try to save your babies life with extreme measures. You can learn more about viability and the weeks of pregnancy here.
Hubby Wants Our Baby To Be A Texas Native
Hubby keeps asking me why I want our baby to be born in Atlanta lol. It’s not that I want our baby to be born in Atlanta, it’s the fact that that’s where my support system is. We could have the baby in Dallas but then I would have to have my mom fly out and miss work for months to help out with the baby. If I am in Atlanta, she can help me and still be able to go to work. I don’t think he really understands the mother-daughter bond when it comes to giving birth. Obviously because he’s a man, he can’t possibly understand.
Honestly, if we had the baby in Dallas I feel like I could get help but it wouldn’t be on a consistent basis. I’d rather receive help from my mother because I hate asking other people to do stuff for me. I even hate asking my husband for favors. I just know that my mother would do anything for me with no hesitation. She wouldn’t do it out of spite or just because its her grand baby or any other reason, if that makes sense.
Hows Our Baby Doing?
I am measuring right on track at 23 weeks. Our baby weighs 1lb 3oz, WOW! I can’t believe the baby is already a pound. I am measuring right on track at 23 weeks. And my cervix is holding like a rock! Praise Be!
We also got to see our little pumpkin in 3D live. Our baby is getting stronger and stronger everyday. I know because his/her kicks and punches are getting powerful more and more each day. It’s the best feeling in the world, until I’m laying down trying to go to sleep lol. Baby loves to be a busy body while mommy is resting.
I have an OB appointment coming up this Friday as a mentioned in my previous post. Pray for me. Its a must, because I need to pass this glucose test with flying colors. I don’t know what I would do if I had to watch my sugar intake 3 times a day. I eat healthy anyways but having to check my blood sugar after every meal would be an tedious task that would get annoying. But it is very important for the baby’s health and my health as well.
I’ll let you all know if I passed. Yay, 23 weeks and I could almost cry. I cannot wait to reach 24 weeks and then 28 weeks and then 34 weeks and so on. Thank you all for your continuous support and prayers.
