Believe it or not, this is JEN typing. Brad has been doing such an incredible job updating all of you, that I hated to ruin it, but I just wanted to fill you in on my perspective…..
So many things are going on these days….as I type Brad is on his way home with a 1998 Chevy Venture – Praise the Lord. It really just came together in a matter of days after spending some time praying about it. It’s in great condition and we feel we got an incredible price through a friend of a friend. I’ll let Brad fill you in on more of the details, but we are very excited about it.
The shower was so wonderful. It was so comforting and encouraging to be around family that loves us and has been so generous towards us. See the pics for more. We really have a great start for things we will need if this house gets filled with baby boys. We are overwhelmed with gratitude.
Many of you have been asking how I am doing physically. The surgery recovery is behind us now, and now to the joys of a fast growing, unnatural pregnancy. I’ve had some real growing pains, but overall, I really cannot grumble. I have been monitoring contractions nightly for an hour and so far there is nothing to report (as far as I know anyway, I’ve never had a contraction before, so I’m not really sure what to expect – but people assure me that I’ll know it when I feel it). I have been so grateful for the freedom I’ve had to run an errand here and there, go to church, go to the NICU/Multiples class, and occasionally go out to eat. Will you continue to pray that I stay contraction free? Not only for my sanity, but especially for the safety of our sweet boys. They are quite active these days and seem to really enjoy my ribs. They are especially active during Colts games, perhaps due to my increased heart rate. During our last sonogram, we were able to witness our mono twins (the 2 in the same sack) picking on each other. Brother C had his foot in Brother D’s face, kicking him. The sibling wars have begun already!
God continues to prove Himself faithful. He is so worthy of our trust. By His grace, Brad and I are really growing in our relationship with each other and with the Lord. Thank you for your prayers on that matter as well.
