reflections on 30...

Yesterday was my birthday.  For the past few years, I've been dreading this one...the big 3-0.  But really as it was approaching this year, I'm good with it; in fact, I'm quite excited.  With a little one on the way, this is going to be such an awesome, exhaustingly wonderful year for us that it's really quite hard to dread this milestone birthday.

And it's official!  We made it well into the third trimester!  We are so lucky and thankful that Baby's situation has improved significantly over the past couple of months.  We made it through way too many weeks when we were constantly playing the "numbers game": if Baby were born today, he or she would have a x% chance of survival.  And we've reached a point where we're in as good of shape as any pregnancy.  It's still hard to wrap our heads around that fact, especially after anxiously checking off the weeks, days, hours, and minutes to get here.
