So, I'm changing my prayer request to:
Getting to 37-38wks gestation.
I'm still going to make a birth plan so strength for that.

I'm in the process of creating a birth plan which has been a lot harder than I thought it would be. We also still need to look into funeral homes. I've talked to a photographer at our church who has offered to take pictures for us. She used to be a NICU nurse so that will help. That's one less thing to think about. I need to pack our hospital bag too. :/ It's crazy that this all could be happening in the next few weeks. I'll be 30wks on Friday and that kinda freaked me out when I realized that.
I was looking at some websites that specialize in preemie clothes (Noah's expected to be small) and they're expensive! I'm going to head to Target or Fred Meyer later today to see if I can find something for him. The most important thing is to find a hat and onesie. I don't think we'll need much else.
Other than that, we're just hanging in there.
That I make it to March
That we have everything prepared for when the day comes
That I can finish the birth plan with minimal tears/heart ache

I was supposed to go on a girls trip to the ocean this weekend but it got rescheduled because of the weather. There's actually snow on the beach!!! However, the only two dates that the cabin is open is Feb 2-4 and arch 9-11. A majority of the women going were able to go in March so that's when they changed it to. I'd be 36wks at that point so I won't be able to go. I'm a little bummed but totally understand.
Here's my stats for this week.
I read somewhere that the reason people with this diagnosis go into labor early is because of excess amniotic fluid. I don't know how true or how common that is but that gives me more hope that I'll go more full-term.

At my last appointment, the Dr said that I could go into labor at any point (he's not expecting me to though) which kind of scared me. I really want to get to at least 34 weeks. For some reason 34wks has stuck in my mind. I'm going on a girls weekend to the ocean (about 2.5hrs away) the 20-22nd of this month. My Dr said to go ahead with the trip but I'm nervous. It's too soon to go into labor. This little boy needs to stay in longer.

Here's the pictures from two of our six Christmases. It was really hard for me to take pictures; I just wanted to enjoy everything.
Here's the Christmas with my mom and brothers.
He got to open one present the night before.
This is what he opened.
Maggie wanted to get in on the action
So much concentration
Opening his HUGE box!!
Working under the hood
Checking out the progress. He was so patient while everything was getting assembled.
Uncle 'Duck' (Jake) working hard
The first thing Carver checked on Christmas morning was the cup of milk, candy and carrots we left out for Santa and the reindeer. The look on his face when he saw that they were all gone was PRICELESS!!! I wish I'd thought to take a picture of it.
Mickey Christmas cup. He also got a Mickey travel mug that we promptly filled with hot cocoa. :)
He got his own pair of scissors (in the shape of a monkey, no less!). Now he can stop stealing mine!
Reach your arm in there!
Nothing left mama!
What a look in his eye! He's in LOVE with his chainsaw!!
A toolbox to hold all the tools for his workbench.
Some of the tools it came with.
His new bobcat. It's an actual toy so this one shouldn't break as easily.
