How far along are you? What size fruit is your baby this week?
I am 28 weeks 4 days so I am an eggplant becoming an acorn squash :)
Do you have any upcoming appointments or milestones?
I am quickly approaching the gestational age that I delivered Avery at (31 weeks 3days). I broke into the 3rd tri, so that was a pretty big milestone.
QOTW: Have you or your SO had any baby related dreams since you got pregnant? (Good or bad?)
I have had a couple that were neither good nor bad, just had a baby in them. My sil (who is also pregnant) had a really cool dream about a month ago. She was having some unexplained pain and was a little worried from that. She had a dream that we were sitting in a booth with my two year old nephew and both of our new babies, when three people approached us. One was her deceased grandma, one was Avery, and one was a man she didn't know that looked like my brother (we showed her a picture of my grandpa who she had NEVER met, and it turned out that the man was him!) She said that they all came up and told us that there was no need to worry. They then went through each trial that we have had and told her what they were doing to protect us. Avery said that she had been guarding Blake throughout everything and that she helped us to get pregnant again when we were ready. My grandpa and her grandma also rattled off several very low times in our family and said what they were doing to get us through the struggle. All three of them promised that the new babies would be fine and that they would always be protected. It gave me chills and made me cry. She said that Avery was still little like a baby and looked like herself, but that she walked up smiling and talking just as plain as day. She told us about all of our loved ones who greeted her in heaven and said not to worry about her either.
Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?
I have a leaky left boob at the moment, which is weird since that never happened with Avery. Other than that, I am wrapped up in preparing for Christmas.
