I just wanted to let everyone know that our twins, Madeline Margaret Lewis and Jackson William Lewis arrived December 15, 2008. Everyone is home and healthy and happy. I would like to express my thanks to everyone for their advice and well wishes. Happy New Year! Beth
Elizabeth ~ congratulations! They are beautiful! I'm so happy for you. And I do understand the tired part as well, believe me. :) It's funny, though, how each day brings with it the strength to get through and when we look back all we'll remember is the sweetness and joy.
Oh man, Santa came to the hospital. That is sooo cool. I was just thinking that this morning, that Olivia didn't get her picture taken with Santa. I just responeded to your blog, but just now saw the pics....you have a doggie too....how was that introduction?
Are you home now? I bet that will be heaven getting to sleep in your own bed again! We get to see Olivia Friday...been a month since the last ultrasound(We're spoiled now getting to see her once a month due to me being high risk from blood pressure) Last month, she weighed right under three pounds, but I have grown a lot in the last month so I will be curious to see. Although last week at my regular OB appt, when she measured me, it showed my measurement as a 29-week-old whereas I'm 32, so she will be little. I came down with a bug yesterday and pretty much out today. Boy, it's one thing being sick, but also being eight months pregnant, YIKES!!! That's really miserable =(~ Have an uneventful delivery and I'll look forward to seeing pictures! How much time are you going to take off after?
Oh wow, that is so awesome to be getting twins naturally, AND one of each. We met a couple at our Baby Basics class this weekend that are also having natural boy/girl twins. By looking at me, you would think I've got more than one in there, but I'm short and I'm retaining a lot of water in my belly. My husband would have LOVED for me to have boy/girl twins. We're having a little girl named Olivia Judith O'Brien, and he's already talking about maybe trying for a boy but we're going back and forth on it. First, we're older, and are blessed with knowing we're having a healthy baby(had CVS testing done). Plus, I do not like pregnancy AT ALL. I don't know if I could handle it again! If we knew we would have a boy, we may do it, but if we knew it would be another girl, we probably would not. So it's a tough call, and yup, having those one of each twins would have been perfect. But I'm not complaining =) We are sooo excited.
