25 weeks. Lena update.

Oh, Miss Lena. Let's play catch up on all things you.

We have made some progress in your nursery. Planning a girl room while not being the biggest girly girl has proven a little tough. I want it to feel eclectic, fun, and be something you can grow with. I think we are on the right path.

 I am having the P17 shots every week to keep you cooking. So far, so good. I joke you are already a pain in the rear but, really it's all worth it as long as you are ok. They burn like all get out and are not so fun but, eye on the prize. I'm going to have to get creative since this week is #6 and I don't know how I will hold the phone and snap a picture. 10 more to go and yes, we are counting down.

 We found out last week that my fluid levels are looking pretty high. Not extreme but, enough to make Dr. Singh want to send me back to the perinatoligist who confirmed in fact that I do have polyhydramnios. My #'s are in the high 20's. It's a big word with some scary things that are associated with it but, we are prayerful with close monitoring you and I will both be ok. Have I mentioned you are giving me a run for my money this go round. Here are some of the best articles I have found about that long word up there.

One.    Two.   Three.
Needless to say we are praying, praying, praying that mine is an easy case and my numbers stay where they are and don't start rising. On the plus side we really like my perinatoligist a lot. It's always comforting to have a great team. She said you looked great and we just have to keep a close eye on everything. Well, that's what she said in a nutshell. ;)

Onward and Upward. We went and registered for you a couple weeks ago. Pam and Donna are planning a shower for you that I am sure will be so fun and beautiful. Jackson thought the whole scanner gun thing was the best thing ever!

Well, I think I have caught us up. This picture was taken last week. 24w4d I think. So far I have gained about 10lbs but, I feel really good most days. I can tell it's time for my shot again by Mon/Tues night because I have a lot of tightening but, other than that we are doing great and counting down until we get to meet you.  Can you tell how excited Jack is? He loves you so much already, we all do. Stay put little momma. Give us those last 10w at least ok?
