Changing it up!

Scratch that whole "two weeks left" thing.  We're no longer having November babies- these are now October babies!!!  Our twins will be delivered this coming Wednesday, October 26th! 

That's less than six days from now. 


I think B and I are mostly just stressed out at losing a week of time to get prepared.  I mean, we don't really have that much left to I'm not sure what it is.  But I'm SO excited to meet these little ones. 

They gave Daddy a great show this afternoon.  I mean, we had legs and arms and elbows and heads-all moving everywhere.  It was a lot of fun that B got to experience that, too. I'm so glad.  Cuz they're gonna be here in the flesh so, so soon. I want to cherish every kick and movement. 

Doc upped my dosage of medication to double what I was taking before.  She feels like if we took them out now, they'd be healthy- so there's no reason to risk leaving them in until 37 weeks.  The compromise was 36 weeks.  They should be big enough and strong enough by then to hopefully come home with us!  Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers for lots of good growth these next few days. 

I'll be picking up steroids tomorrow to start taking for their lung development.  I'll take two rounds before they're evacuated.  :)

Our appointment is at 9:30am on Wednesday- need to get there by 7:30am.  So these babies should be here by around 10am or so!!!

I mean, wow.  Just wow.  Can't wait to see them, to hold them, to know that they're safe.


  1. So exciting! Really hope all goes well. Good luck!! X

  2. Lots of luck for your luckies! My husband and I are really excited for yall; when you have been through a loss it is so much sweeter to hold your newborn(s) in your arms. You will forever know how precious your twins lives truly are. 6 days!! Keep us posted as best you can once they are here; I know life is going to get really busy and different and exhausting but it will be worth it!

  3. Wow - it's coming up quickly now!! Don't forget to take lots of pictures!!! :)

  4. I'm so excited for you! I've been reading your blog through this entire journey. I can't believe it has flown by SO fast and these little miracles that you were so surprised to see will be here in real life so soon! I am sending you all so much love as you both enter this magical and amazing time of your lives! Do post photos (if you're comfortable) as soon as you can! We're all anxiously waiting with you!

  5. I have set an alarm on my cell phone for that morning! I will be praying for you all! Safe delivery and healthy babies! God Bless you all xx
