22 weeks, 3 days

Just doing my bed rest routine on this snowy Monday. Dan is doing some work for a friend today and Elijah is at daycare. My contractions have increased a tiny bit over the past couple days, so I'm keeping a close eye on them.

Two of the big things we had planned in February were/are supposed to happen this week. Dan and I were going to take an Elijah-less trip up north to spend this coming weekend together in a cozy log cabin. We had to cancel those plans which is kind of a bummer, but obviously taking care of the baby is priority.

The other big plan for the week is still going to happen as planned, I think. We are set to take Elijah to his preschool classroom on Thursday morning for a visit before his official start date on February 23rd. I really really really want to go along for the visit, so if my contractions are under control that morning, I will go. I want to see first-hand what his classroom is like and I want to see Elijah's reaction to it. I have a lot of emotion wrapped up in this whole preschool ordeal, and I think being able to be there on Thursday will help me with some struggles I am having. We are praying for my contractions to behave that morning!

That's all for now! Thank you for checking in!

Glad you guys are both feeling a bit better. Hope you get to go to the preschool to check it out, but don't feel badly if you just can't. You need to take care of you! xoxo

How excited for Elijah to be starting Preschool. But very scary for Mom. I have the same feeling you do, Logan will be starting preschool in August when he turns 3and I am so scared. I can picture Elijah getting along with everyone and just loving school and coming home telling lots of storys to Mom and Dad.
I really hope you can make it to the school it will help ease your mind alot. Good Luck

I am with Kathy I just love your Baby:)
