38 WEEKS!!!!

I cannot tell you how excited I am to be 38 weeks!

It has been a big milestone for me all along. Why? Well I've always thought of it as the "safe zone". Now I know that babies born before 38 weeks can be just fine and not all of them even need to go to the NICU. But always in my head 38 weeks was the number to beat. Everything should be developed by now and you hear of people who have their babies a week or two early (naturally) all the time. Another reason I wanted to make it to at least 38 weeks is just to prove that a twin mom can! When I told people I was having twins many said "Oh, so you'll probably have them early" along with many other comments. Now I know people weren't trying to be negative or rude but it was REALLY hard to hear ALL the time. I had to work hard not to not take on the negative things I was being told and to not freak out! By the way my Mom carried her twins to 41 1/2 weeks!!! Carrying twins full term is possible! You don't hear of it much these days because of many different reasons.....poor diet, doctors taking them early and many other reasons. I am just SO excited that I've made it this far that I could shout it from the rooftops! I feel so very blessed and I am thankful for the miracles that have brought me here today!!!!

38 week....... now what?

We wait.

I am in no hurry to get these babies out!

Yes, it would be nice to not be in pain ALL the time!!!! I am EXTREMELY uncomfortable, I get grumpy fast, It's hard to eat, I can hardly sleep (get used to that....Right?), sitting hurts, walking hurts......everything HURTS!

But it's ok. I know my babies are getting healthier everyday and that is what gets me through each day! Our Heavenly Father knows when the best time for them to come is and I have faith that he will send them at that time. So keep on growing little babies!!!

My Dear Sweet Babies,

I am so excited for you to come to our family! I have wanted to have twins from the time I was a young girl. Not just any twins, girl/boy twins. I prayed for you. I told our Heavenly Father that I wanted to have twins if he thought it would be a good thing for me and if he thought I could handle it. Well, I guess he knows I can handle it so he's sending you to me. I will not be a perfect mother. I WILL make mistakes. I will have times that I feel overwhelmed and think....Can I really handle this? I want you to know no matter what that you ARE wanted! I love you both SO much already and I know that love will continue to grow.

I can't believe that I will soon be holding you in my arms! I am so excited!!! I will miss this special time of carrying you in my tummy! I love to feel and watch you moving around!!! Keep growing healthy and strong! I will see you both soon!!!



My Sweet Ezra Boy,

A BIG change is about to happen in our family! You will soon have a brother and a sister. To tell you the truth it's going to be pretty crazy around here for awhile. I want you to know that just because there will be two new babies doesn't mean that I will love you any less. I love you so much any NOTHING will ever change that!!! I am so blessed to be able to be a full time Mom! We have had a lot of just you and me time in the past 19 months, I will always cherish those moments! Thank you for helping me learn how to be a Mom! Your brother and sister are so lucky to have you for a big brother!!! Ezra, you bring so much joy to my life!


(I love you)


Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers!

Please keep praying for us!!!!

Hooray for making it this far! You look so amazing and beautiful in the pictures. I have loved reading through all of this, and hope that whenever I get to have kids I can have the love and strength that you have had.
