I know that it has honestly been forever since I have posted anything. It has been the furthest thing from my mind since I found out that I am having these two little babies. Well, last week I had a routine doctor visit and when he checked me he found that I had already started to dialate and my cervix was already thinned to 50%. He decided to admit me to the hospital for 48 hours so they could monitor the babies, and my contractions. He also wanted me to have the steriod shots to help the babies lungs develop just in case they decided to make their debut early. For some reason I just about started to cry. I have never spent any time in the hospital and I definitely wasn't prepared to start that day. I didn't want my babies to be born that early and it all made me pretty nervous. I was having pretty consistent contractions the first night and I had to stay in the labor and delivery but the second night my body quieted down and they actually let me go home Thursday. I was so excited to actually be going home. Well, here I sit, still at home. The doctor has put me on modified bed rest to help prevent me from going into preterm labor. My life has been a little crazy and different than I have ever experienced but I am so blessed. I am so thankful that these babies are still growing and healthy. I just keep praying that they want to stay for at least another 4 weeks. I love them so much already and I can't imagine what my life will be like with them. I am so excited!

Hey Janelle - I had heard from my mom what's been going on. I hope those babies hang on for a little bit longer!

Janelle, I am so glad that your contraction quieted some. I totally know how you are feeling, I was on "modified" bedrest for 10 weeks with Jackson. You feel so blessed not to have your babies too early but it isn't easy to watch everyone, especially you hubby, do everything for you. Let me know if you need to talk or if you need some lunch, I am happy to keep you company! We'll keep you in our prayers.
