Well today I am 23w0d. One more week and I am 6 months. 24w0d also marks the first step into viability. My baby girl would have a 50% chance of surviving after this point. However, all the following weeks are so much better with such better outcomes, it still feels good to be able to make it to this first milestone. LOL! I say first....but I've met a lot of milestones....milestones that a fertile mertile would never think of as a milestone but to me....they are. All I can say is Thank You God. I know without God blessing this pregnancy and watching over Miracle and I everyday I would not be able to experience this. My little Miracle is an active little busy bee and I love feeling her move and kick. I enjoy just sitting looking at my belly and watching her do her thang in there. Seeing my belly move with her is the most amazing thing ever! I still can't figure out what she is doing by what I'm feeling or seeing but I'm sure the moves will get more defined where I will be able to know exactly what body part I'm feeling.

There really isn't too much going on with me right now. We got the nursery room cleaned out and touched up painted so now we are waiting for the furniture to start arriving. I only ordered the futon so far and will order the rest of the items on the first. Then the fun will begin with putting everything together.

I have a lot of things coming up in the near future but for now its quiet. Let's see if I can remember them all off the top of my head:

Sept 5th - 3d/4d ultrasound
Sept 12th - Hospital Tour
Oct 10th - GA Baby Shower
Oct 14th - Office Baby Shower
Oct 24th - SC Baby Shower
Oct 29th - Mandatory Waterbirth Class at hospital
Nov 7th - Maternity Photos
Nov 14th - Labor/Birth Education Class

I think I got it all. Besides the every 3 weeks doctors appointments that go to every 2 weeks after 28 weeks, then every week after 34 weeks.

So I know with all this going on, the time is going to fly by and Miracle will be here before I know it.

Wow.....I'm going to be a Mommy! How surreal!
