28 weeks!

I am so thankful to have made it to this first milestone in this pregnancy! It means that even if the babies are born now they have a good chance of making it- which I am so thankful for! It looks like things are going well still so I'm so thankful that I will hopefully be able to keep going! My doctor told me he usually tells his twin patients to "take it easy" (not technically bed-rest but more of a don't do much instruction) at this point because they are having a lot of contractions but I haven't been so it doesn't seem like he will tell me that. I will find out more as I have an apt. on the 27th (ultrasound) and the 28th (apt. with my Dr.). It is just amazing how the Lord works- at this point in my pregnancy with Owen I was on bed-rest because of too many contractions but now that I have twins I am doing well. The Lord is good (he would be either way) and is totally sovereign and in control of my contractions. I was sure that I would be having problems by now- but I'm not at least yet.

Here is the illustration update of fraternal twins in the womb at 28 weeks! They look so big in there!

This is Leslie and I posing about a week ago. I am 27 weeks and she is 37 weeks in the picture. The doctor told me that around 28-30 weeks I would be the size of a normal full-term pregnancy. Yikes!
