28 weeks

28 week down. That is 70% of the 40 weeks; 70%, people!!! Not that I'm worried (b/c I honestly am not), but we've read that if I were to go into labor now, that our baby would have an 85% chance of survival without any significant complications. Wow!

When we reminisce and tell our son about the winter we were pregnant, we will tell him:
  1. The country was in the midst of the most dynamic presidential primary in recent memory (certainly in my memory!) At 28 weeks, Obama held a rally and Clinton is on her way here this weekend. We feel like we are part of history, and we both plan to vote in a PRIMARY next week!
  2. WI received a record snow fall. We are approaching 80 inches now, and the weather gurus are suggesting we might even reach 100" by the season's end. (Previous snowfall record for ENTIRE season: 76.1".)
  3. Related to the above point, poor E has shoveled our driveway more times this season than she should have had to in five years. Of course, the one season I'm of extremely little help....

I'm sure there is more we will tell him... we will tell him how much we love him, and how much we wanted him before he was ever here. We won't be surprised when his favorite foods are cereal and ice cream, because that's what he seems to be telling me he wants!

12 weeks to go. 12 weeks before we meet our wonderful baby boy.

P.S. Does anyone know what happened to Maeby at Possible Maybe? Maeby, are you password protected now?

Congratulations for making it this far... I've been reading along since your BFP and I can't believe it is now only 12 weeks away!

My oh my - 12 weeks left? That's tooooooo exciting!

And maeby will probably tell you herself, but I just visited her blog and I had to be logged in to Wordpress to do it (though her new posts still come through to my Bloglines account - I wonder if she knows that?)

Congrats on making it thus far. It's funny, I read you guys and I always want to be where you are. You guys are like the timeline for my future. No pressure or anything...

I was wondering about maeby as well??

You're in the home stretch now and not much longer!

One of our best investments was a snowblower! It has saved a few ER and chiropractic visits this snowy season!!

Happy 28 weeks! The Tot will be here before you know it, and I'm sure he has tons of people that are already eagerly anticipating his arrival (especially his moms, of course!) What a great way to welcome the summer :) I know we can't wait for the warmer weather so we can take Mater outside to play.

As I play with Skeeter sometimes, I can't help but think of how great you two are going to be as parents. Just a quarter of a year! A-maze-ing!

Oh, I am also totally in for any baby-sitting needs you may have on any future pilgrimages to Lansing! Seriously.
