I completely understand... I'm out of milestones now. I passed my pre-e milestone a little over a week ago and just yesterday was the day that I had delivered my sleeping boy in my last pregnancy. It is so bittersweet, I've been very emotional. I'm so grateful though to have made it this far and still feel that wonderful movement inside of me. I hope that everything continues uneventfully for both of us! I have 4-5 weeks left until I get to meet my sweet rainbow at most... I hope I can make it through and keep my sanity!

Our first child, Peyton Mark, was born sleeping at 33 weeks on Oct. 25th 2011. Developed pre-e at 32 weeks.
Pregnant again with what I pray is our rainbow baby, due Oct. 14th 2012. Will induce labor no later than 38 weeks if we make it that far!

I am so glad all is going well! It seems crazty how bad first pregnancies like ours were in comparison to subsequent "normal" pregnancies. It is definitely all so bittersweet, even leaving the hospital with a healthy baby, while awesome, is bittersweet because you are thinking about how you didn't get to do that the first time. Even though I'm on my second, so far "normal", pregnancy, and 5.5 wks past the point we made it the first time, I still have moments of "why couldn't it have been this easy the first time?"

Anyway, I hope you have many many weeks of milestones left to reach.

Congrats! I also remember feeling very bittersweet when I made our gestation that we delivered our daughter- especially the day after when I was the most pregnant I had ever been. Just when you think you've got a handle on everything that is unique about being an angel momma, there's something else.

Wishing you peace and keeping crossables crossed for another bunch of very uneventful pregnancy weeks for you!

I have reached one of my personal milestones without any issues so far! Today, I am 25.6 weeks which is when I gave birth the last time around. I am very happy about that, yet it also fills me with sadness and makes me miss our little Henry a bit more.
