25 Weeks 2 Days
Wednesday is the big day!! We have another weight check. We are hoping Ben will be 1 pound 4 ounces and Jake will be 1 pound 12 ounces. I guess we need to be grateful if Ben grows period!!! I can’t tell you how stressful these appointments are for us! We just hold our breath the entire time!! Please say a prayer tonight that our little guy has grown!! I strongly believe in the power of prayer!!
On a side note, I do have to vent and say after almost two months of bed rest, I am ready to pull my hair out! This is getting really old!! Sitting on a coach for two months may sound fun to most…but it is awful!!! I pray for patience and strength everyday. I think about last year at this time when I was training for my marathon, in the best shape of my life, and now here I am in the worst shape of my life. I am just watching my body turn to mush!!! Yea…it’s pretty hot! I know it’s a small price to pay for my sweet little boys!
I try to stay busy with house stuff and educating myself about the twins and their condition, but that is even starting to get old. For some reason, I feel guilty reading for fun or watching movies. I only watch three TV shows on a regular basis- Baby Story, Bringing Home Baby, and Oprah. Ohhh and the Tigers every night with my dad and Kevin. I normally do not like watching sports, but with two boys on the way, lets face it… I am going to eat, sleep, and breath sports!
Thank GOD I have such wonderful parents who make me laugh and smile every night. I feel bad that even though they have a 29 year old, they still have to take care of me!!! I know the job of parenthood lasts a lifetime…but who knew I’d be sitting on their couch at 29 years old and they’d STILL be taking care of me! Kevin and I are very lucky to have such great parents. We could not do this without them!!
Hope this doesn’t sound like “poor me!” Despite everything that is going on, I continue to feel blessed to be pregnant with these little miracles. I know this is just a short period of my life, but it seems like an eternity. I know it is 100% worth it!!! Kevin’s message to me today on the calendar was “Thank you for giving our boys the best chance possible.” That makes it all worth it for me!
Almost done with another day!
