i am now 26 weeks into my pregnancy. i can't believe that we are so close to saying good-bye to the second trimester (my favorite trimester)! blaire will be here in our arms before we know it!
i had a drs. appt on friday and got some of the best news so far this pregnancy. my cervix measurements are holding strong, and i am far enough into the pregnancy that my doctor is ready to back off all the extra caution and proceed from here as if i am no longer high risk for preterm delivery!
hip hip hooray!
she told me to call her the minute i feel any contractions (there will be no harmless braxton hicks for this mama!), but otherwise i don't go back for another 4 weeks, and we won't be doing an ultrasound at that point. sure, i will miss getting my routine photos of baby girl, but i feel so much relief about keeping her in there long enough, that i don't think i will mind at all. ;)
i also passed my glucose test with flying colors (which was great because then i proceeded to eat tons of sweets in the form of cake and ice cream all weekend long for my birthday!)
overall, things are good.
but happy. really, really, happy! ;)
