32.2 Weeks

I actually made it to my OB appointment today, on time and on the right day even. Imagine that. I got it all together and going at the right time.

Jo's heartbeat is still going strong. Normal and right where it's supposed to be. I'm not feeling her move nearly as much as I was a few weeks ago. Dr. Hall and I both feel there are a lot of reasons for that. He's not worried, so I'm not either(yeah....right).

We have a tentative B-Day for her. IF(and that could change at any time) she goes full term we will get to meet our daughter on Friday October 30th. That's a mere 7 weeks from tomorrow. Wow, time flies when you're having fun(or whatever).

Between now and then, Chad and I still have a few things left to do. At some point in the next few weeks we will be meeting with the neonatologist that will be assisting in Johanna's delivery. This meeting will assure that our desires about her care(however short or long) is accomplished. At the appointment today, Dr. H reviewed Jo's birth plan and was on board with everything that we wanted.

As for me, right now I'm great. I had a long talk with Mom this morning(that may or may not have made me way late for work) that I needed. I just had to get some things off my chest and tell somebody else how I was feeling. She just listened and let me laugh and cry. And during all of this talking, laughing, and crying, my wonderful little boy decided to start undressing himself while he was strapped in his car seat. Not an easy task, but he was doing a pretty good job of it.

I think I'll crash tonight and play some ball, or pull Emma's tail, with Clayton. I think I'll enjoy just being a Mommy.

I've said this a lot in the last few weeks, but we are very fortunate to have kept Jo with us this long. God is still using her to accoplish His will and plan. I just get to benefit from having her with me.

Still praying for you. It is comforting to have everything laid out and know how things will go.

I just found your blog and wanted to say that our family will start praying for yours! You are so blessed! We lost our daughter, Mary Grace in February to triploidy. She was only with us for 20 weeks. I wish she would have remained with us longer. Many prayers for you!
