29 Weeks and going strong!!

So this picture is from Wednesday July 23rd. 29 Weeks!! This was right before the weekly dr. appt. which went well. Things are good still, if not a little better! I am very optomistic that I can make it. If not all the way then at least to 35 weeks. Thats only 6 weeks away now and I have already been on bedrest for over 7 weeks. That seems like a piece of cake now!! I asked the dr. if there came a point in the pregnancy that I will be able to start to get up and around again, maybe 36 or 37 weeks if I make it there and he was like "I would say more like 34 weeks!" So that is my goal now. Not that I will be able to move much but it would be nice to get out of the house a little.
Keith and I finally decided to break down and buy a shower chair for me, because having been in bed for 7 weeks, I have no muscle left and showers are extremely draining on me. I hate that we had to because it makes me feel even more like an invalid, but I know that the reality is that it only gets harder as I go along. Oh what a wonderful life, eh?
Keith had his interview in Kalamazoo and we are still waiting to hear an answer on that. I am not getting my hopes up but at the same time, if he does get the offer then I have so much more to worry about..... I just want to go home.....
Baby boy is great. Still looking good and kicking hard. I just can't wait to hold him in my arms. I have waited so long for him and wanted him so much that it is unbelievable. As much crap as I am going through for him, I would do it again and again just to have him healthy in my arms. Ok enough sentimental gush. Ta ta for now!

Well, I don't know how to reply to comments, or even if you can... so, in response to your question, no, we don't want to find out what we're having! It's going to be a surprise!! I had my last ultrasound at about 18 weeks and they knew what it was then, but I didn't want to know, so now we have another 17 weeks til we find out what kind of alien we are having!!! I'm so excited! :)
You look great!! Keep up the good work holding that little guy in there! The longer the better!! :)
