This morning (7:15am) the doctor said "For every day that you stay pregnant, you will take off 2 days of the babies staying in the NICU." I guess that's a good way to put it. I take it, I'm in for the long haul. She also said any small contractions I am having need to be watched very closely because my cervix is very thin already. Once, I start contracting and if they progress, the contractions will most likely not stop which leads me into labor and this would call for immediate delivery of a C-section.
The more I think about this whole situation, I miss my brand new home that we just moved into, I miss seeing my furry-furry, green eyed, grey haired Harley, I just miss his face so much. I miss my school schedule and seeing all the kiddos and the really sweet kids who like to hug my tummy and say "Hi twins" or "Hello babies", I miss so many things right now and even though I have family coming and going here at the hospital, things just aren't the same. How long will this last?? I guess this is the part where I have to stop being selfish and remember how much these babies are depending on me.

Enough of the sappy stuff. I'm pregnant, with a constant full bladder and now I'm emotional.
I'm in and out of the bed more and more now.
The babies were 2.4lbs and 2.5lbs on Monday and approximately 14-15 inches so I'm waiting for the next update on their size. Keep growing you lil' coffey beans, Keep Growin'!
