27 weeks

so I haven't posted in a while so here is the update.

Griffin is getting bigger everyday and according to the growth estimates from our ultrasound the day before thanksgiving he weighs about 2 lbs and 7 oz now!!! Isn't that so cool?!?!? Every ounce he gains brings him closer to a healthy birth weight and that is what we want, to avoid the NICU!!!

My appointments the last few weeks have been ok, My cervix is not staying as long as before and is now showing quite a bit of change with pressure where as before it didn't change much with pressure. My last Dr apt my cervix was 2.3 at it's longest measurement and 1.7 cm at it's shortest. The Dr will not give me any estimation still on how long he thinks I will go, he always just says as long as we can. I'll be happy as long as I make it to at least 34 weeks when they take out my cerclage.

Jeremy and I have started taking childbirth classes and it has been fun but has also really brought to the forefront of my brain the reality that this baby is going to have to get out of my tummy somehow and it will probably be scary and exciting at the same time. Reality is sinking in that this is REALLY going to happen.

I'm not scared of being a mom, just of certain things, like giving birth, and breast feeding. I think these are probably normal first time mom fears. but despite the things I'm nervous about I have way more to be excited about!!!!

I can not wait to hold him in my arms, see his sweet little face and take care of him... I feel so blessed to have gotten this far and everyday my worries about the dangers of having a preemie are fading a bit... soon it will be a fear from the past.

tomorrow is our 3d ultrasound so we will get a real peek into what ur little Griffin is doing, it'll be so interesting :)
