28 weeks and 3 days!

Yesterday we went to the doctor and had a great appointment.  

Everything is looking great!  Which is so encouraging.  The doctor still has me on bed rest but it has been changed to modified bed rest.  So I can sit up some and fix myself something to eat.  I can even leave the house on occasion!  Also long as I'm only gone for a really short period of time. 

I feel like a free woman!

It's the little things, I tell ya.

I can not thank everyone enough for their prayers.  It was a  little scary there for a couple of weeks.  I was definitely not prepared to welcome two little boys into the world that early!  

I will be 29 weeks on Friday - and I am so incredibly thankful that they are hanging in there.  Each day means more and more development.  The doctor told us yesterday that he was confident that I could carry to full term [36 weeks] now with the way things are looking!

Thank you, Jesus!

We had an ultrasound yesterday and as usual, Baby A was uncooperative while Baby B wanted the camera all to himself!  The whole time they were looking at Baby A, he was curled into a little ball.  And Baby B kept kicking and punching - just trying to get on the screen.  It was pretty funny :)

Because Baby A was curled into a ball we never got any pictures of his face.  I mean, none.  They couldn't even measure what they were trying to measure because he wouldn't roll over.  I offered to do a headstand or some jumping jacks.  But we finally had to give up on getting a good picture of his face.  Maybe next time!  I'll be back in 3 weeks - so hopefully he'll cooperate then!

Baby B, on the other hand, was more than willing to give us some action.  

Here's a picture they sent us home with:

It's so crazy to me.  I just kept staring at it.  Telling the lady....he's like a real human.  Oh my gosh.  Like really.  A human.  

I think she finally started to get freaked out a little.  
She was probably thinking..."Umm, ma'am, what were you expecting?  A kangaroo?"

But seriously, I am just in awe.  

Of the God we serve.  Who can knit something, err...I mean a human....I mean two humans so perfectly in my womb.  That He, the God that created this universe, knew my two boys before they were ever created.  That He formed them in my womb and knows their hearts already.

It is my prayer that these two, amazing boys will have hearts that beat for Jesus.  That they would come to know Him early in life and live their lives sold out for Him and only Him.  

We are so blessed and in awe of the amazing God we serve.

 "For you created my inmost being;
   you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
   your works are wonderful,
   I know that full well.
 My frame was not hidden from you
   when I was made in the secret place,
   when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
   all the days ordained for me were written in your book
   before one of them came to be."

--Psalm 139:13-16
