The Scoop- wk 27

We are in the last week of our 2nd trimester. Week 27. You would think 9 months would be a really long time, but it feels like this whole pregnancy has flown by! Now we get to the scary part- 3 months and we have to jump right in! Very exciting, but very scary at the same time. The awesome thing about having made it this far is that Jude's lungs can officially function with help. Basically, if something happened and we went in to premature labor, he would be able to survive with help. That's such a huge relief. Luckily though, everything has gone really well so far. The sonograms, heart rates, and my weight gain have been right on target.

By the time you get to week 27, you start to feel like you're "getting to know him". We know that he will punch and kick if you disturb his sleeping. We know he doesn't like the doctors and nurses prodding around my stomach looking for him. We know that without fail, he will wake up when I want to go to sleep. We know when he's up, he's going to play hard and when he wants to sleep, he's out. And we haven't even met him yet. It's amazing how much you can tell just from pregnancy.

For my brother

I am by NO means a blogger. Rarely do I even look at other people's blogs to be honest. I'm not sure I would even be doing this if it weren't for the fact I love my little brother and he is going to miss so much of what goes on with our coming baby, Jude Dylan. My brother is currently in the middle of his plebe summer at the Naval Academy. Currently, he doesn't have internet access, but once the semester starts he will. I'm doing this so he can keep up with his first nephew as easily as possible since he won't be home too much. Luckily for the world, at 27 weeks, I'm thinking I have some time to get good at this thing. Anyway, this blog is for Joel and all my out of town family.

13 weeks until the world can say "Hey Jude Dylan"
