So sick....

....and so happy!

Jonathan and I are expecting (fraternal) twins on April 4, 2011 (really, we're expecting them before then, but that would be my 40 week mark).

I am 7 weeks, 2 days today and sick as all get out. But as I throw up each and every day, what a joy to know that my babies are growing!

We had an ultrasound one week ago and saw two little fluttering heartbeats. One of the babies was measuring smaller than its dates, but he/she is surrounded with prayer and we are hopeful that he/she will keep growing appropriate to his/her own body! The other baby was measuring perfectly on time.

Five more days until our next ultrasound and our release from our RE's office!

Thank you for your prayers. I know that you have been faithful to pray for us because this is amazing beyond our wildest dreams.

I don't know if you remember me, but we were on BBC together when you got pregnant with Max. I have been following your journey ever since. Huge congratulations on your TWO growing babies. May you have the easiest possible pregnancy that a mom of twins can have.
