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.
