Good Days!

I had 4 great days in row, with meds, but no sickness! It felt sooo good! I am finding if I stay away from certain foods then I have better days. NO SUGAR!!!! Eating every 2 hours, making sure my tummy is never empty and not missing the meds. I tried a day without them and I ended up throwing up! I will try again after 16 weeks, when sickness subsided with the boys. I find that when I am out and about with others I feel better. Like a distraction. We are going to church tonight for the first time in about 6 weeks. I finally am having a good day on a Saturday... when we attend church. I am feeling my tummy grow but am not quite showing. Once I do I will post new pics. 29 weeks to go:)!!!

My sons have been so amazing. On my sick days, when I was on the couching crying, praying and hoping the sickness would stop Ty and Alex each had their special way of taking care of me.  Ty (4.5) would come over, kiss me on the nose and rub my arm saying, "You sick 2 babies Mommy?" It was so sweet! Alex came over, tucked HIS VERY PRECIOUS BEAR under my blanket, tucking it in so nicely and said, "THERE!", like now I am all better. There behaviors and attitudes have been top notch. I am so proud of them for how well they have been. I am blessed!!!

I am reminded of a day last week where I had an overwhelming amount of pregnancy hormone telling me to cry. I actually thought about it before crying and realized I have nothing to cry about. Although I am not feeling well, Aaron has been taking such good care of me and the boys and the house. My friends have been e-mailing, calling, coming to my rescue on hard days and have volunteered to help in anyway they can. I then began to sob. Not a sob of sadness but of joy. I am being so well taken care of all I could do was cry because of joy. What a great day!

Faithfulness & Peace

There are many fears that have tried to pop in my head, but I caught them before they did anything to me. I began to make a list of answered prayers in the last 6 year of my marriage. I noticed so many prayers have been answered the way I wanted them to go. I began telling some friends the list and Kat told me I should pray for the lottery!!!! 
Here is the list of answered prayers:

Meeting Aaron who had all I was looking for in a man!
Two boys first.
One with light hair:)!!!
The timing of their pregnancies/births.
Aaron loving his job.
Always wanted four kids, but dislike being pregnant... HE GAVE ME TWO IN ONE!!!

He is on a roll. So here are my predictions, based on my prayers:

One boy, one girl (although this changes all the time).
One or both with Daddy's blue eyes.

I then began to pray about not having to have a C-section, that they not be in the NICU... and then something happened. While I was praying and starting to get nervous I heard God say...

"I will take care of you."

At this point I know that even if they were in NICU, or I had to have a C-section, or anything else that I do not even want to list... HE WILL TAKE CARE OF ME. A peace came over me that I have never felt before. I then began to look up more info on twins and the hospital where I will deliver. I will save all this good news for the next blog....

This blog is a way to keep my family living across the country and around the world updated with the progress of the pregnancy!!!!

I am 8.5 weeks pregnant with twins! Children #3 & #4! #1 & #2 are 4 and 2 year old boys!!!

I have basically been bed-riden, and my husband has completely taken over everything. All I do is sleep, eat, fold and put away laundry.

My husband is great! We will be married 6 years on Dec. 15th!

More to be updated later!
