Breathing a huge sigh of relief as I hit the 24-week mark today!
While I'm by no means "out of the woods" I am relieved to have hit this wonderful milestone.
I've never had a preemie (heck, I've never even gone into labor on my own!), but I've also never been over 40 when pregnant.
According to the March of Dimes stats, a 24-weeker has about a 39%-75% chance of survival. At 25-weeks, viability raises to 50% and at 26-weeks bumps up to 80%. So, seems like only positive results from here on out! Plus if little Baby Duggar can hang in there than that gives the rest of us hope!
In other news, my 3 year old (3y4m) is officially potty trained! I loved calling my MIL to share the news with her...she was completely put out that Benjamin was not yet potty trained. Yet, Megan, another grandchild who started using the potty at 2y4m STILL has to have someone take her to the potty, help her wipe, and pull up/down her clothes.
When I say Ben is done...I mean DONE! Of course, I insist on wiping his little rear for him after pooping, but if I wasn't around that boy would do it all. It took us literally 1-day of practice and an entire week of regular reminders, but now, week 2, he is LOCKING me out of the stall in the women's bathroom! HA
Also, I finally decided on nursery/shared bedroom theme. I am using Benjamin's nursery bedding (vintage fire truck by Wendy Bellimissio) and doing a vintage toy/transportation theme. I didn't want to go strictly fire truck (that just seems so cliche being married to a fire fighter and all!), and this way I can incorporate trains/airplanes/vintage childrens' books that I've collected, etc. I also have some jacks and marbles to put on display on shelving! Can't wait to get the room painted and the vintage alphabet border put up!
Hope everyone is doing well,
