25 Weeks

Today was the start of week 25. I'm happy to be into a new week, but of course still praying that the babies stay put for many weeks to come. Still, Joe and I celebrated the new week with afternoon sundaes from Carvel.

It was a pretty quiet afternoon today. All my doctor visits and monitoring happened early in the morning so I was pretty much done by 9:00 AM. The babies looked good on the ultrasound and there are still no contractions happening, which is a wonderful thing. My doctor ordered the food service people to bring me 3 bottles of water per meal, so I've been trying to drink a lot.

Dinnertime was fun because Jamie and Dave came to visit us. They brought Chinese food and we hung out and chatted for a few hours. Jamie also brought me a great bag of treats - yummy smelling soap and foot cream, lip balm, Newman-Os and a few awesome looking microwave desserts. I know officially have the most stocked room in the hospital. If anyone needs a snack, come on by.

So another day almost down, and I'm grateful for each and every one.

Keep the babies baking. Tina, Christina if you preffer, and I are constantly thinking of you, Joe, and the babies.

These updates are great. It keeps me from bugging Tina. So glad things are going well these past few days.

You have NO idea how much this post reminded me of my 49 days in the hospital, every day wondering if it might be the last. DH got me a present when I made it to 24 weeks and every Monday (our changeover day) after that. Every day is such an accomplishment! I'm so pleased you've already made it this far and will keep praying for many more days!
