Viability

24 weeks. Another milestone achieved. One more down on this (what seems like) awfully long p-word journey. 50% of babies born now would survive. Not great odds I know but also some little piece of mind that doctors would work to save my babies should something go terribly wrong now.
We ordered and got the border for "the room" in the mail yesterday. We decided on this bedding. This weekend we'll probably go looking for paint samples but are thinking about either a green or yellow. The bathroom these babies will use is already painted blue so we don't want the room blue also.
So much to do, and we've waited a long time to do it because of my fear of jinxing things. But the realization that because we've got twins that these bugs could be here in a short 12 weeks or so really struck me the other day. We have got to get going on things.

Next OB appointment in 2 weeks with another ultrasound.
Next mile marker -- 28 weeks.

Hooray for viability!!! I've got 2 more days to go in that countdown.

P and I were considering that bedding too -- I love it and think it's fabulous (P got himself very set on Patchwork Pooh, so that's what we're doing).
