27 weeks

Despite my serious face in this photo, I am feeling pretty good at the moment!
Tomorrow I will be 28 weeks which is a huge milestone for us as the whole way through this pregnancy my obstetrician has said "you just need to get to 28 weeks" and here we are! We made it!

Of course, we are aiming for a healthy full term little boy but if I did go into labour early we have a good chance of everything turning out okay now that we have got to this point.

I was also told that from this point onwards I am allowed to start getting out of bed a bit.. but when I saw my obstetrician last week he told me I should wait till 32 weeks before I start getting out of bed.. The sneaky man, I'm sure he does that on purpose! (You know.. tells patients that they can get up from 28 weeks and then when they get there he says "Oh actually I meant 32 weeks". I wonder if I will get to 32 weeks and he will say 36 weeks?!)

Anyways.. we are on the home stretch now! Feeling very excited and a little more relaxed.

So glad to hear you made it this far and all is well. You can do it! Thumbs up from here in Vienna/Austria!

You are looking so gorgeous and glowingly healthy. This post made me smile because a friend of mine fell pregnant for the first time at age 39 - with twins! And had a bit of a tricky start to the pregnancy and was told the same thing as you 'you just need to get to at least 28 weeks'. Her babies were born naturally at 41 weeks!! Keep up the great work of taking such good care of yourself and your babe. x
