Update! 5 years later

After a very difficult pregnancy, I gave birth to my little boys at 29.5 weeks!  After 2.5 months in the NICU I brought home two healthy baby boys.  Today they are two very healthy active 4.5 year olds!

There is hope!  I thank God everyday for my little guys!

17.5 Weeks

I'm happy to say that I gained 10 pounds last doctor is thrilled.  Especially since I lost weight the month before when I got so sick and had the food poisoning.  My babies are growing well, they were actually measuring 3-4 days ahead of schedule on my last ultrasound a few weeks ago.  The good thing about having twins is that I see a high risk doctor every 2.5 weeks and get an ultrasound every time, so I get to see my little boys very often.  It's funny because I can even see their individual personalities and although they are identical, they are very different.  My baby B is very active while my baby A is more relaxed.  I can feel them moving around now, yay!

I'm just so glad that I'm not so sick anymore, since I reached my second trimester things have gotten a lot better with me.  I actually feel like doing things even though my belly is the size of a 29 week pregnancy - I feel okay.

15 Weeks - It's Two Boys!

Oh my goodness, I can say that these two little babies have put me through the ringer already.  I had to spend 3 nights in the hospital due to food poisoning and an infection, then a few days later I went back in for a cerclage, and this week I started having mild contractions and was put on Procardia every 6 hours to stop the contractions.  Although I didn't have an appointment this week, I just felt that something was not right with me, I had a dull lower back ache and slight pressure at the bottom of my stomach.  It was something that I could have dismissed and just dealt with but decided to air on the side of caution, even though I initially felt really silly for calling the nurse.  I'm so glad that I didn't wait until my scheduled appointment next week to call the doctor because I was actually having contractions, which could have ended very bad for me if I would have waited. 

The good news is through all of beautiful babies are very active and healthy and are growing and developing as they should.  I also found out last week that I'm having baby boys!  My husband and I are so excited and very blessed, that they are doing well despite my uncooperative body.  I'm sure I'm headed to bed rest way sooner than I anticipated at the rate I'm going.
