I used to wonder, how could anyone get postpartum depression? Surely everyone is excited once they are able to actually hold their babies and no longer carrying all the extra weight. Now that I am pregnant, I have a completely different outlook. I am going to miss these little kicks and hiccups. I also feel like the twins are safe inside. For now, they get to stay inside a little bit longer. We made it through another doctor’s appointment today. The doctor asked if I had some kind of magic potion because Baby B has been able to maintain his blood flow for way longer than anyone expected. Prayers have been our potion! 

We have known Baby B was tiny but it’s always hard on measurement day. I want to hear both the boys have grown more than anyone thought they would. We did not hear that today. On a positive note, the boys are both growing. Baby B is now at 1 pound 7 ounces and Baby A is 2 pounds 7 ounces. My weight has really started increasing the past 2 weeks. The left side of the picture is me today at 28 weeks and 6 days. The right side of the picture is from exactly two weeks ago. 

On days when we go to the doctor, we eat Mexican to celebrate. It looks like we will have Mexican again tonight and return to the doctor on Monday. People have still continued to amaze me with their kindness. The top picture on the post was sent to me from a premie mom and when I got to work on Tuesday I had this devotional on my desk. 

God is GREAT! 
Tomorrow = 29 WEEKS!
