November already?

how did that happen?  
time is flying by and we are speedily approaching the twins' arrival 
{insert moment of panic here}

between now and then...
...we've got check-ups and appointments galore
...we're hoping to move somewhere where they can have their own room
...we've got to prep for Christmas
...we've got to figure out what things we need to take care of the littles
...we've got to buy / register for said things
...we've got to keep our priorities straight, our heads from spinning, our relationships in tact and remember to rest and enjoy these last couple of months before everything changes forever
(a tad dramatic, I know - but what fun is life with no drama?  ;) )

here we are at 27 weeks, with yet another week behind us
it was a rougher week than most, to be honest.  many of you read my last post and very sweetly (if that is even a word) offered support, encouragement and prayers.  let me tell you, every single one was much appreciated!

what i didn't mention in the post was that a specialist had called that morning trying to book an "urgent" ultrasound for us - apparently our last ultrasound showed one of our babies to be quite a bit smaller than the other plus her rate of growth had slowed down.  all of this i knew beforehand, but something about the phone call and the sudden urgency to book another ultrasound shook me a bit - it made me wonder if perhaps this was a bigger deal than i had originally thought.

so we booked an ultrasound and an appointment with the specialist and headed out early yesterday morning to meet with them.  after a full day of hospitals, appointments, doctors, technicians, etc, we found out that it was indeed a bigger deal than we had thought, but also that it wasn't an issue anymore.  turns out the twins are on the small end of normal and our wee one has caught up so that they are both the same size now - thank you, Jesus!  in fact, getting to see the specialist gave us an opportunity (that we wouldn't have had otherwise) to learn more about our twins and taking care of them at this stage so it was a bit of a blessing, actually.

so that's our latest big news - and despite being completely exhausted, I am thankful:
my babies are well, my momma's heart is glad and my faith is encouraged.  :)


  1. Praise the Lord!! So glad to hear that the babies are doing alright and that you're not losing your mind in the process! Many more prayers for you all are to come.

  2. So glad to hear everyone is doing well! I look forward to meeting them when they come. :)
