It’s V-day! I have reached 24 weeks in my pregnancy which is very exciting as my little pudding is now considered viable.
When I was pregnant with J I reached this milestone on Thanksgiving -which we celebrate as my husband is American- and this was my Facebook status:
“Happy Thanksgiving Y’all! Today I am thankful for being 24 weeks pregnant with our baby that took 2 long years to make. Every kick reminds me how lucky I am and how the hard wait was worth it.”
So I thought I’d take this opportunity to reflect on what I am thankful for this time round:
Being able to conceive this baby just 4 months after my miscarriage
Becoming pregnant so easily after suffering 2 years infertility with J
An easy and healthy pregnancy so far
My amazing little toddler who will soon become a wonderful big brother
I am also thankful that J is happy and healthy. His eczema is well under control, he hasn’t had a bad chest for months and only a few relatively minor allergic reactions. We have successfully started the milk ladder and are hopefully going to try an egg challenge soon.
I am thankful for my family and friends; career and blog; and my home in the country.
Life is good.
What are you thankful for?
