36 Weeks Y’all

When we were first admitted to the hospital 40 days ago, the doctors gave us small, incremental milestones to shoot for. At that time, we were at 30 Weeks and 2 Days. Our first goal was 32 Weeks…then 34. Week 36 was really a “dream date” that no one, not even our doctors, thought was possible with our circumstances. But…here we are, with our amazing baby girls still defying the odds! It has been tough – mentally, emotionally and in the last couple of weeks, physically. The last trimester is…well…trying. But I know this season is quickly coming to an end, and these two tiny humans are worth every ache in my back, each needle poke to start an IV or draw blood, the countless middle-of-the-night trips to the bathroom and each day spent in the walls of this hospital. So, here’s to another week! And knowing we will be meeting our sweet babes very, very soon…

This is truly the definition of "fat and happy" friends. It hurts so good.

  1. I check my e mail every day to see if the girls have arrived. Yes, Jen, everything you have endured has and will be so worth it. You look beautiful, and I am so proud of the woman you have become.
