We like to scare our parents...(30 weeks on the inside)

Is what my kids would say if they could talk...

At around 6 weeks, they gave us quite the little scare when I had a bleed and we were sure it was a miscarriage...

About 12 weeks later when they decided to send us bad quad screen results...many u/s's later, I am convinced all is well...

AND 29 weeks, they landed me on bed rest with some nice high blood pressure and (undetectible to mommy) contractions...since our little emergency jaunt to the hospital, brought on by the high bp, I've had some reassuring (albeit not-quite-normal) test results, but I was told by my specialist this week that it is only a matter of time until I develop pre-eclampsia and I am officially 'out'. Jon has strict orders to keep my bed-rest, well, strict. I am anxious to see my regular OB this week to see what is and is not permissible for me to be doing.

I'm sad to be off of work so soon and so suddenly, but I know that the doctors are only telling me to do what is best for the boys and I will never do anything less than what's best for them.

Hi! Welcome to our family blog. At the request of many friends and family, I've started this blog as a way for everyone to keep up with us. (Us, who am I kidding? It's all about the boys!)

After 2.5 years of trying for a child and 5 rounds of IVF, Jon and I were blessed to find out earlier this year that we will be welcoming twin boys into the world this fall (well, we hope to make it to fall, anyway).

This blog will serve mainly as a place to chronicle our new life as a family of four, though I am sure there will be some reflective posts on all that has led up to now (pardon my self-indulgence).

Currently, we are 27 weeks along in our pregnancy. In the words of my doc, the boys look 'seriously beautiful' and although I often am tired and generally not myself, I could not be happier to be where I am today. For so long, I really never thought we'd be here (there I go getting reflective) and I really couldn't be happier or more excited for what lies ahead.

Darling hubby, Jon, has been a prince the entire pregnancy, heck, our entire marriage, taking great care of me and I know he's going to make the best dad ever! Now if I can just get him to change a diaper.... :)
