22 Weeks!!

I'm finally 22 weeks! This is a major milestone week for me to get through as it was the week I went into labor with the boys and never left the hospital until after they were born. It just blows my mind what we went through at this point, terrifying really.

The difference in my care this time around is mind boggling. It nags at me to wonder how different things should have been with the twins. The good news is that I'm doing so much better this time and I have so many sets of eyes watching me.

I saw one of my high risk specialists Friday and I will see them every other week from here on out. I'll also see my OB every other week as well, so I'll be seeing someone once a week from this point on. That's very reassuring.

They told me that if I have any trouble to call them, go to my local hospital and then they will send a helicopter to come get me! With the boys we had to take matters into our own hands to get transferred to a larger hospital, so hearing how proactive they plan to be is very comforting. Hopefully I won't need that service!!

Here are some new pics of Miss Ally. She's looking very healthy so far Praise the Lord! My fluid level is currently normal, woohoo. Ally appears to weigh about 1 lb 1oz right now and hopefully she'll get much bigger as the weeks pass by.

Thanking the Lord that you're doing so well and getting such good care!
Praying for you right now!
Psalms 16:8-9, 11 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. (11) Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Stopping by to let you know that I'm always here praying!
Jeremiah 17:7-8 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Always lifting up prayer!
Romans 5:4-6 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
