29 Weeks

Aiden is now older than I was when I was born. That’s right – for those of you who maybe didn’t know, I was a preemie. I was born at 28wks and 4 days – my mom’s water broke early. Now Aiden is a whopping 29 weeks and 1 day. Yay! Granted he still needs to incubate quite a bit longer but this is a big milestone in my book. I was so subconsciously anxious about it that the morning he was turning 28 wks 4 days I had a dream that my water broke and his umbilical cord prolapsed. In case you don’t know that is bad news in OB – babies die from prolapsed cords because it cuts off their blood supply. I awoke frantic looking for a puddle around me. Thank God the bed was dry – no broken water, no prolapsed cord. That was several days ago and Aiden is still incubating. He is getting bigger and stronger – he can throw quite a punch these days! :) I am still feeling pretty good – I just get tired really easily (or that just could be working 12+ hours a day) and have some L sciatic nerve pain. I finally registered at Babies R Us – Nathan even went with me! Bottles and baby baths and burp rags oh my! Lots of fun, new, and exciting things to look forward to. I can’t believe there are less than 11 wks left til my due date! It will be here before we know it…

I wanted to post the most recent belly pics as well…
