A Long Way

Wow, time has flown. I can’t believe it but I am 23 + 3 weeks today. I read back on my old post and it seems like so long ago eventhough time seemed to crawl by at the start. I was constantly on edge, worrying that something would go wrong. I just couldn’t believe that it was real.
Everything has gone smoothly so far and we found after the NIPT test that we are having a boy! We’ve seen him look more and more like a baby on the scans as time goes by. I’ve also been feeling him kick and squirm which is amazing. Poor K hasn’t been able to feel him yet though because every time he tries, the baby stops moving!
Since my last post, most of the pregnant people I know have already given birth including my best friend. I visited her last week and met her little boy who is absolutely gorgeous. I got to have a cuddle and watch his sweet little face scowl at me as if to say “Wait a second….you’re not Mum….” It definitely has me looking forward to September!
My last day of work at this stage will be the 12th of August which is only 3 months away. That’s crazy! Sometimes when work is stressful (who am I kidding, that’s most days), it feels ages away but I know it will come around quickly. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about how incredibly difficult it is for those still trying. Infertility is a demon and I will never forget the struggle. In fact, I don’t want to forget.
I am grateful every day for each milestone and the next one will be at 24 weeks – viability. I have my last travel for work where I’ll be in Brisbane next week and I’m already looking forward for that to be over! K and I have booked to go away for a couple of nights to Hepburn Springs for my birthday and a mini babymoon in June. I can’t wait to just kick back and relax for a few days and forget about work!

  1. So awesome to hear things are going so well. I’ve moved blogs since you were gone (formally *Our Wish*). Seeing him turn more into a baby on the scan *swoon* those are the moments I live for. I pray that one day we get to see that. I get emotional just imagining it. (HUGS)
