Feeling good

Well we made it to our first goal. I'm officially 24 weeks and 3 days pregnant! It feels so odd. Just a few short weeks ago I felt almost hopeless but now I'm feeling better. The babies have met the point of viability and I dont feel so doomed. With each passing day the babies get stronger and the chance of them having complications if they came keeps going down.

Last wednesday my high risk ob came for my sonogram and gave us a good report. He said my cervix looks the same. No better and no worse which is good news. We weren't exactly thinking it was going to get better but it not getting worse it a plus. The babies are growing and so is my belly. Hopefully I can get a picture soon one of the times I get up to potty. The babies weigh over a pound. Levi is 1 lb 7 oz roughly and Emma is 1 lb 8 oz. She has weighed more the entire time which I think is funny. I'm also feeling them more. Last night my mom and I sat here and watched them kick the monitor on my belly! So weird. They've also started monitoring me twice a day for an hour each time. In the past three days I've been monitored six times and have only had one contraction and I didn't feel it so it was no big deal.

My goal right now is two more weeks. I have to take it slow. Thinking about six more weeks is daunting to me but if I think about it as two weeks at a time it dosnt freak me out as much. So I'm setting my sights on 26 weeks. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. Please continue to pray that these babies will stay put where they are safe.
