28 Weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are so happy to say we are 28 weeks pregnant!!!! We met our first big goal!! We know that 28 weeks is still not an ideal time to deliver but after being told we would miscarry at week 17 this seems like a true miracle!!

Now if I could just get little Benny to pack on a few ounces in these last few days/weeks. I have spoken with a dietician on how I can bulk up my diet these last few weeks to give him everything he needs plus some. Even though the hospital bed rest is really challenging, I think it has been key in the survival of my little ones. I seem to be having less contractions and I know I am burning a lot less calories, which means its all going to the babies.

Well we have to get ready for our big party tonight. I am making my parents toast Jake and Ben with a champagne flute of boost!!! After consuming 240 cans of boosts, I think its time my family got a taste of the wonderful cocktail too. :)

You are so cool!!! Have a great party. Then let's start planning the 29th week party and the Ben reaches 2 lbs. party. It's all possible! Keep up the great work!

Toasting you and Kevin with a flute of boost, brings me NOTHING but pleasure! I am so inspired by all that has transpired over the last 11 weeks, and believe from my soul, that our little boys will continue thier safe journey to us!

Awesome! It is so great of you both to be doing this party for the staff. It is something they do, taking care of patients and their families, but it is nice to see peolpe like you guys recognizing that. I can't wait until you all can celebrate 30 weeks!

Yippee!! You are making such incredible progess each day that passes. Those boys share in the strength and faith that you both have. We sure do miss you as the school year begins, but we know that you are doing the most important job of all and that's being a mom!! Look forward to more updates.
