And they came two by two...

Sorry I have procrastinated so long getting these pictures up. It is a good thing we had my shower when we did cause I don't think I could handle that much excitement now. It has been almost a month but I just wanted to share the fun with those who couldn't be there and to thank Meghan for all her hard work. You were too nice to have done all this for our family. Thanks to Nona and Alyson for their help also and to everyone that came for their generous gifts. We are so excited to be having a boy and a girl, the best of both worlds. Thank you for all your support and friendship!

Oh Baby!

Here is a pretty recent picture that we took here in Village Green. These are all the pregnant women minus 5 or so and one that just had a set of twins that week. Some of you who used to live here will enjoy this and should recognize at least some of these girls. It was fun getting all together. This one was taken in order of due dates. Unfortunately I look way out of place but what's a girl to do. I just figure the bigger I get the bigger the babies are and the better off they will be. I just had my baby shower and not a moment too soon. I have started having contractions for the past 3 weeks or so. I spent last weekend in the hospital so they could monitor me, give me shots to stop the contractions and get a pump installed so that I could go home and still get the medication. I have a catheter in my thigh that goes to a pump that automatically administers the medication. It is way better than a shot and way better than being in the hospital. I thought that one night was going to drive me insane. I had never been so happy so see my own front door after only one day. My doctor says everything else is okay. I am not on bedrest, knock on wood. I have to take it easy because even on the medication I still have a few contractions an hour. I have another machine at home that allows me to monitor my contractions and send the information to a nurse. If I have too many she will tell me how to give an extra dose of medication or she will call the doctor. I am feeling pretty prepared with all the baby stuff. I could last a month or more if the medication continues to work or it could be any day. Luckily I am 28+ weeks and hope to make it at least to 30. Things seem to be going well. Sorry this is so long but I know it has been awhile since I posted. Things have been crazy. Aspen is doing reasonably well with her new diet. Thanks to all of you for your support and advice. We are lucky to have you all as friends.
