It has been a crazy week and a half with these girls of ours! I have been having contractions, spent 4 hours in the hospital last Thursday being monitored, bedrest Friday, spent the night in the hospital Friday night, bedrest all weekend and went to a specialist today. I was sure Dr. Thigpen was going to give us some good news because I have still been feeling so good. The contractions haven't been painful and the meds I am taking have seemed to slow them, but the news was not good. My cervix is shortening--it is at a 1.1 as of my appointment today. So, strict bedrest for me for the remainder of this pregnancy. I am 26 weeks tomorrow and we are really, really hoping to make it to 30. I have another appointment with Dr. Thigpen next Tuesday and if my cervix has shortened anymore I will be in the hospital for the duration. Sounds exciting, huh?
I have been very emotional. I am very hopeful, but the reality is definitely setting in. I am trying not to think about all the things that COULD happen. Just trying to stay hopeful, but it is hard.
The babies look good--they are growing and very active, it is just their mama having a hard time. So, we are asking you to all join us on our knees! At this point there is nothing we can do. It is all up to God and His plans for our babies. Please, please keep us in your prayers. It is not very likely that we will make it much past 30 weeks, but we know that God can do anything. With Him all things are possible. That is where we are trying to keep our focus right now.
