God has transformed my heartache caused from infertility into a beautiful hope in my future and the future of my family. It's not always easy or simple to be hopeful, but "hope deferred makes the heart sick" (Proverbs 13:12).

Well, I am on bedrest. I had been noticing some "different" pains over the past two weeks. As they started happening more often I decided to call my nurse. She told me it sounded like contractions and to start timing them. I did and they were coming every 15 minutes....so off to the hospital we went (Monday). It caught me off guard because I was expecting it to be like the movies where you are doubled over in pain doing those breathing exercises. Not the case! When we got to the hospital they hooked me up to the monitor and sure enough they were contractions. Both babies were doing great...they were moving around like crazy and their heart tones looked great. So, they gave me a shot to stop the contractions and ordered bedrest until I see my regular doctor tomorrow (Thursday). So, I am hoping that he will lift some of these restrictions tomorrow. Below are more belly pictures and some pictures from my wonderful shower this past weekend. I guess the babies saw all the gifts they got and wanted to try to come and join us. I don't think so!!!
I will update again after my appointment tomorrow. :-)
