Ricky and I have not done a great job updating you lately, sorry. Hopefully you have all assumed no news was good news.
I am 30 weeks already! Where has the time gone? My mom mentioned in her morning email recently that she has taken to calling the twins the "miracle minions" which they certainly are.
Our pregnancy is going really well. Our last ultrasound was at 28 weeks, at that time the boys both weighed 2 lbs 12 oz., the weight different between them was only 9 grams. They had their echocardiograms at 24 weeks and they were both normal for any abnormalities they can detect in utero. I feel really good overall. I felt great during my second trimester! My biggest pregnancy hurdle has been my leg swelling. I am wearing compression stocking which seen to be helping, leave it to a wound care NP to have prescription strength compression stockings during her pregnancy :).
Some of our dear friends at The Ridge (our church home) through a baby shower the last Saturday in January and it was such a wonderful day.
We often get asked if we are ready? I'm not sure you can ever be 100% ready for the complete life change that occurs when you become a parent, however we are getting there.
One of the biggest projects we have left is setting up the nursery! We have one crib put together, so we at least have a start.
The details of my return to work are not yet finalized, but I will be able to stay part time working three 8 hour days per week.
We have found an in-home-day-care option that seems promising. She has been struggling with migraines and may not be able to have the boys three days a week, if that is the case we will have to continue to pursue other options for child care.
Ricky and I could not be more blessed by all the ongoing love, support, prayers and encouragement. Before we know it we will be holding our miracle minions in our arms!
