All's Good

28 weeks tomorrow and I'm still on my feet!  :)

Today we had the high risk check that we have every 2 weeks.  Things are still looking a-okay.

Week 1 of being a stay-at-home-Mama has gone well.  I get to literally stay off my feet more because I'm sitting playing, but it's still go-go-go that school was.  But it's a happier, more fulfilling go-go-go.  (I don't think it's any secret that I long to be a stay-at-home-Mama)  We've laid low all week.  The kids are all still nursing coughs and runny noses, and simply loading kids into the van is a workout that leaves me huffing and puffing.  But it's been fun.  Train, cars, dolls... a fight or two.  :)  It just feels right.  Someday, maybe.

But in new baby news, I am less than three months from D-day.  It's so close and I'm so excited.  We aren't ready to say "no more babies" after this baby, but a part of me knows that it might be.  Just because with us (hopefully) moving soon, who knows what insurance we might have.  Who knows if IVF will be covered.  Who knows if we'd even want to go that road?  I definitely do want a Baby #6 in a few years (we'll leave the gap a little bigger this time!) but the realistic part of me knows that it has been so nice this time to just "get pregnant" without needles and ultrasounds and blood draws.  It's been wonderful to just be.  And a part of me isn't sure that I could go back to a clinic.  But then again, that's the part of me growing this perfect baby... we'll see how I feel about it all in a few years.   :)

SO I'm just so excited to hold a perfect tiny (BIG) baby.  I'm so excited to take a baby home WITH ME.  I'm so excited to have the baby in my room.  To hold it when I want to.  To see a baby without leads and feeding tubes and monitors and nurses hovering.  And every day I'm more and more sure that it will happen.

I am hoping for you SO much and I'm also more and more sure that it will happen.

It is a very different experience and when I had R I could hardly believe that this was happening to me. That he was so big and so healthy and could come home!

Glad that Colby is doing so amazingly! He's come such a long way.
