24 weeks

There he is, our little wiggly boy. He's started to kick almost on a schedule and I love it. It makes me laugh and laugh, especially when he's kicking at Danny but Danny can't feel it.

We did find out that he has choroid plexus cysts on his brain, but all of the research shows no link between the cysts and developmental delays or disabilities. They also are fairly common and professionals estimate that most of us adults also have CPCs and never knew because there weren't ultrasounds when we were in utero. We have the option of a medically necessary 30 week ultrasound if we want it. We'll see if we've met our deductible when it comes time. It's pretty frightening to hear 'cyst' and 'brain' in the same sentence, but I've been feeling more at ease and less panicked.

My appetite seems to have slowed-I'm not famished like I used to be-but my clothes continue to get tighter. Like they should I suppose.

Danny got a surprise half scholarship for next semester which eases the burden of school a lot. We're still quite up in the air about what we'll be doing and where we'll be in 6 months, but we're having faith.
