another lame catch up: 26 weeks, weight loss and Williamsburg
At 26 weeks, according to my research, the baby has a 80-90% chance of survival if he was born now (with extreme medical intervention and a possibility of other issues that fully cooked babies wouldn't likely face). I wouldn't want Teddy to be born now, but it's nice to know he's got a fighting chance!
This weekend Ed and I are going to Williamsburg, Virginia as a sort of "babymoon." The books and forums say to take this vacation or mini-break before the baby comes and who are we to argue? We'll visit Colonial Williamsburg and the Jamestown Settlement and we plan to look for a super old church to attend on Sunday then we'll head home on Monday. I'm pretty excited about this - I've been once when I was about eight and Ed's never been at all. I may as well have never been since all I remember about it are the glass blowers. Historical vacations are lost on anyone under 18 (maybe lost on some people altogether).
That's pretty much what's going on right now... I could tell you about the nine million baby outfits I got from the Pikes or the enormous amount of bird poop I sprayed off the bird cage this weekend, but do you guys really care? I didn't think so...
