A Milestone

Today I am 23 weeks 3 days pregnant and I got out of bed this morning and showered and came to work.

That seems so mundane, but it is a HUGE milestone for me.  Because at this point in my pregnancy with Logan I was in the hospital on strict bed rest.

Tomorrow is the anniversary of the day I was admitted to the hospital. 

Sometimes I feel like this pregnancy is taking forever.  Other times I feel like I just woke up from a bad dream, two years later and still just shy of 6 months pregnant.

It is hard for me to believe that on Logan's birthday, just two weeks from now, I will be further along in my pregnancy than I have ever been before.  25 weeks will be a big milestone.

As will 26... 27... 28... you get the idea.

In a little way, I feel like I'm back in that hospital room, marking the days off in my little calendar because the NICU nurse told us that every single day is a victory.  In fact, today I'm going out to get a calendar, like the one my mom brought to my hospital room two years ago.  And I think I'm going to "mark off" the days just like she did, with a "G" for Good Day.  Because every single day that I stay pregnant is a good day, just like it was two years ago.


  1. Praying for you Anna!
    Love, Meredith

  2. Yay! Each and every day is a gift! I'm glad things are going well and the three of you as well as the "bun in the oven" are in my prayers. Have a wonderful rest of the week!
