They Are Here!

They have arrived!!! Our precious baby girls decided early this morning that my labor was going to start back up again. Within 1 1/2 hours they checked me and I was 5 centimeters and my doctor said we are having babies now. I immediately called hubby as we had sent him home thinking we may have a few weeks. I also called my momma & daddy so they could be here and the children. I then called my dear precious friend Ms. Denise. It all happened very quickly and unfortunately I was alone as I knew it may come to that. We are very happy with how they look, they truly are doing very good for being 29 wk 2 days gestation. They are both on limited oxygen and trying to wean them off. They are just monitoring their vitals and the typical things going on with preemies. I had knitted them these sweet little hats and I thought they were so tiny but really the girls won't be able to wear them for awhile as they are huge compared to them. God has truly blessed us..we continue to covet your prayers for these girls and the road ahead for them. I am doing pretty good considering I have never had a c-section before. Please help us to pray for a quick recovery and for a quick recovery for me as well.. Thanks to everyone we love you all!

Oh Carrie,
Michelle W. called me yesturday and told me about you having the girls. Bob and I are continuing to cover you all in prayer.

The key to succesful recovery after a c-section....is get up and start walking a.s.a.p. Take it slowly but start right away. DO NOT!!! lift ANYTHING!!! over 5 pounds for about 6 to 8 weeks.

My possum was a preemie also, so I am familiar with that road also.

Please know I am praying and so is my hubby.

All our love to all of you.

God will make you and your sweet baby girls strong in know time.

Love & Prayers,

Ms. Carrie,
We are soooo happy. I know I was bugging Shiela, texting her every few hours asking what is going on. I am so happy things are going well. We will continue to pray for you and the family as you recover and those beautiful babies grow. It may be pregnancy hormones but I am just all a mess looking at their pictures. Thank you for sharing. I look forward to seeing them in person when ALL of you are well enough. If you need anything in the mean time that we may be able to help with please let us know. We are so excited for you and love you all.
Continuing to pray!
From all of us!

You don't know me, but I had to comment that the girls are beautiful!! Congratulations!!! I want to encourage you also, I have two friends who had babies at 25.2 wks and 27wks and they(both girls) are doing well and they are 2 now. Both born at just over 1 lb.
God is good. Praying for you, the babies and your family.
