"Although it seems like it, you are never alone. You alone feel the nausea, the other discomforts, all the things you cannot do which you want to get done. I was only allowed to get up for trips to the bathroom, and a 5 minute shower once a day. I so wanted to go outside, but my outside was limited to the view out my bedroom window. When all of this is over, I bet you will have a new appreciation of the smallest little things, like a walk in the sunshine without feeling sick. Your act of sacrifice for these two little people will change your life forever. You are not alone, because every woman who has negotiated a difficult pregnancy is walking along with you spiritually, and we've got your back. I wish I could be there to give you a big hug and tell you there are better days ahead. You are creating miracles! Today is another victory in the making. You are not alone."
This process has been hard, and I wish so much it was easier, but it is a sacrifice on many levels, and no matter how hard it is, I would never change it. I am so honored to be in this position. I am fearful that me speaking of my being sick and how hard this is will come across as complaining, when I simply just want to update people. We are very lucky with two healthy growing babies right now. I am counting all of our blessings.
Thank you again for having the courage to speak up, for being the light in the dark times, for always reaching out. You have made a difference. The twins are growing amazing, I am entering my 21st week and they are moving like crazy! Baby B is almost always the first to wake, and he kicks so much until he wakes Baby A and they start their dance. It is truly a miracle.
Here are some photos of the 20 week check up, they are growing a few days ahead of "Schedule." My belly is measuring at week 29... here we go! Also check out the video clip of the babies!
