A Big Mileston and a Vacation

I've been reading tons of blogs with disclaimers about not posting much, especially this summer. You can add me to that category. And I'm sorry.

Anyways, we made it to 28 weeks with baby boy! Yesterday I had an appointment in Seattle at the University of Washington Hypertension Clinic and all looks well. A growth ultrasound showed baby is growing perfectly and is right on schedule and weighs approximately 2lbs. 8oz. Can you believe that Darsie, born at this gestation, weighed 1lb. 12oz.? Just shows what havoc high blood pressure and preeclampsia can cause on the unborn baby.

And we are headed out tomorrow on a vacation to the Oregon Dunes where my husband will ride quads with his college buddies and I will embroider, nap, and eat, in some order. The girls are headed to my parents for a few days of being 100% spoiled and catered, too. I think we will all enjoy our vacation.

Hope all is well with everyone!

That is awesome about making it to 28 weeks! You are giving me hope that maybe one day we will try again. A vacation is always nice for the parents and the kids (especially when they visit their grandparents), it is what keeps us all sane:) Good luck with the remainder of your pregnancy!

By the way, I think of you with EVERY WEEK that goes by! I've been worried, but I'm feeling less and less worried.
