Sweet Mimi

My sweet Mom, or Mimi as she is known to all her grandkids, sent me this little note in hopes of "guest blogging." Love her and this!

Sweet Adeline! – I love her name … I love her cute profile in her ultrasound pictures … I love her parents … I love her big sister … I love everything about her!  I have a necklace with charms that have each grandchild’s name.  I decided to order Adeline’s charm.  When ordering,  I just typed in her name and clicked  “submit order” – no special instructions.  Hers came with a perfect little heart engraved on the back!

Heart Mom

Wednesdays are a hard day of the week for me. This Wednesday has been no exception. They always start out the same. I get up in the morning to a Babycenter email that tells me how many weeks pregnant I am. 25 weeks today. I used to love reading these emails when I was pregnant with Ellie telling me how big she was getting always compared to a fruit or vegetable. Needless to say, I don't read them anymore. I groan when I see them in my email. It just means we are one week closer to finding out if we get to take our baby girl home from the hospital.

This Wednesday has been especially hard. For those of you who don't know, February is Heart Month. February 7-14 is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week. CHD Awareness Week is a gentle reminder that we will (hopefully) be dealing with Addie's defect for a very long time. February is no longer just for Valentine's Day. I am a Heart Mom now.

I am a Heart Mom!

24 weeks

I had my 24 week appointment at both my OB, Dr. Dullye, and my perinatologist, Dr. Rinehart, this past Thursday. Nothing new to report, thank goodness. The biggest thing now is making sure we make it to full term and that Addie gets as big as possible. Dr. Forbess metioned 3 things that determine whether or not a baby is high risk for not surviving the first surgery: birth weight, if the baby is premature, and whether or not the baby has any additional problems. Dr. Rinehart hasn't seen any evidence of anything else being wrong, but we won't know until she gets here. Here's to making it full term! And now, some fun.
