Into the Double Digits!!

Well I'm just chugging along. Fighting off a horrible cold for over a week now so I know I'll have to get better soon. Shane brought home some Emercen-C last night and I've just been trying to rest the last few days so some time soon I will be back on my game. Today I am at 26 weeks, only 98 days to go as long as I go full term. At my ultrasound on Monday the baby is measuring great (even though my uterus is small :( ) and he weighs 1lb 12oz and yes I confirmed he is still a boy! Dylan and I had a fun day in Yakima checking out Target baby stuff and buying material to make a nursing cover. I registered online and wanted to make sure that what I put on there is actually what I want in real life. I keep going back and making sure that everything on there is really what I want since the value of a dollar is so crazy these days. I've been hungry all day long so at least I should be packing on the pounds now and finally fitting into normal pregnancy pants. At 26 weeks I feel pretty far along but here is a chart of the baby's odds as he continues to grow:
Odds of a Premature Baby's Survival by Length of Pregnancy
Length of PregnancyLikelihood of Survival
23 weeks17%
24 weeks39%
25 weeks50%
26 weeks80%
27 weeks90%
28-31 weeks90-95%
32-33 weeks95%
34+ weeksAlmost as likely as a full-term baby

Counting down the day I get to meet my next little boy.
