Beth, I hope you don't mind me commenting on your blog. (I'm a grandma and member of the Jan 2010
) Lots of positive vibes coming your way for a full term pregnancy.
Thirty years ago I had a 28 week baby. Back then this was the cut off for viability. The NICU experience was amazing but very traumatic. I was a wreck my next pregnancy and would check off the weeks and pray that everything would work out. Luckily, I saw a high risk specialist who monitored me very closely which is the key.
Once I passed 28 weeks I was able to relax somewhat and enjoy the pregnancy. Since I'm a worrier, I really made a serious effort to put this in the background and keep busy.Thank God, that worked for me. My second son was full term and weighed 8 lbs. I was so amazed. The nurses and doc in the delivery room laughed when I marveled...He can breathe all by himself ! (BTW, this is HIS daughter in the photo below.)
My fingers are crossed for you....lots of positive thoughts and good wishes coming your way.
