I've made it to 23 weeks! One more week until Viability!
So far, everything is good. BP this morning was a beautiful 110/60 and no swelling in hands or feet yet. Overall, I'm feeling well. I remember with DD#1, my feet were so incredibility swollen by 25 weeks. I can't remember when it started exactly. So, I'm taking it one day at a time.
Work is prepared for me to go out early again- they have coverage for me starting in June.
I'm hoping to prove them wrong.
So, everything is good for now. I know it can change in an instant but for now, baby and I are both healthy.
As I get closer to 28 weeks though, I get more and more nervous. I feel like I'm waiting for the ball to drop, so to speak. I know there's nothing I can do to shake this feeling but I'm SO SCARED. I just want (like all of you) a healthy, full term baby to bring home WITH me from the hospital. I don't want to see another NICU for as long as a live.
