I know its been a while since our last update. Ricky and I had the pleasure of having our 20 week ultrasound this past Wednesday, can you even believe it? 20 weeks already, as I write this I'm 20 weeks 4 days. It was so fun to see the babies! It is really just amazing how God has designed us and knit us together. We are thrilled to announce the twins are boys!
We learned at the ultrasound that the average gestational age for twins is 35 weeks 3 days, which will be Match 19, 2016. We also learned that they will not allow me to go beyond 38 weeks, which makes our new due date April 6, 2016. That does not sound that far away.
Some prayer requests:
Pray for the boys as they continue to grow and develop. During the ultrasound they did not get all the imaging of their hearts they wanted. At our 24 week ultrasound and weight check both boys are going to have echocardiograms.
Pray for Ricky and I as we continue to work through the part time plan for me at work. We had hoped that I could stay 1/2 time and we are still working with my employer to try to find a part solution. Pray for wisdom.
- Pray for Ricky and I as we are researching childcare options. We have a few very promising leads with in home daycare providers near our home recommended by friends. Thanks Mark and Erica S.!
- Continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy. Twin pregnancies put me at higher risk for pregnancy related complications.
