I had a MFM appointment and ultrasound today and all went quite well. First of all my friend Stacey was able to push me around in a wheelchair without doing damage to me or herself so that was a major succes. :) Miss Addison was moving around a lot which they like to see. She measured well and her heart was beating as it should be. The doppler showed that she is getting enough nourishment which is a good thing and she is currently over one pound. My blood pressure was good and my protein levels remain the same which is encouraging.

Since I last posted I am officially 24 weeks which is a small milestone because Addison could now receive steroid shots which would give her an advantage. 24 weeks is still too early though so I continue to pray for 10 more weeks or to be more specific 9 weeks and 5 days :) When I am praying I always mention that if God wants to give us more than that it would be a greatly appreciated "bonus".

Jared is still pressing on despite the pressures of our current life. I am probably most emotional over the things that I am unable to do with the boys but at the same time am SO thankful for all of my friends who come over and take them outside and let them run and play in their little pool all day long. The boys are having an absolute blast. They are adjusting to all of this so well. It really is amazing how resilient they can be at this age. Thanks for the continued prayers and encouragement.

Glad the appointment went well. Take it day by day. I think I would be feeling emotional about not being able to do things with the kids too. Sounds like everyone has it covered though and they are in good hands.
