We woke up this morning in total awe once again of God’s miracles!! Today was a HUGE milestone, one that the doctors weren’t very sure we would ever make and one that we prayed for ever since the beginning of our pregnancy! The average gestation for quadruplets is 29.5 weeks, but 28 weeks is huge…the 3rd trimester, the point where their lungs are more developed, and there is a smaller chance of a brain bleed.
When we were admitted to the hospital at 20 weeks and 4 days, there were a lot of unknowns and the doctors were preparing for us to deliver any day. That day Josh filled out our 2 goals on our hospital whiteboard though with great hope that God could do anything. He wrote….”healthy and happy babies” and “28+ weeks.” From the beginning we knew that was a big goal to attain, but we also knew and continue to know that we have a big and mighty God!! The verse we have been encouraged by from the beginning still means so much to us right now!
“God can do anything you know, far more than you could ever ask or imagine!” Philippians 3:20
So 7 1/2 weeks in the hospital, I continue to lay here in bed, Josh continues to serve me constantly, and these babies keep growing and growing everyday! I am still taking meds to keep contractions slowed down, and yay God they have stayed minimal! Overall, I’m feeling pretty good just tired a lot and trying to stay comfortable with this big belly. From our most recent growth scan these babies were still packing on the pounds!!
Baby A-1lb 15oz
Baby B-1lb 5oz
Baby C-1lb 15oz
Baby D-1lb 9oz
This next Monday we have another scan and are very excited to see their growth! Thank you all so much for your continued prayers, love, and encouragement! Please continue to join us in prayer thanking God for His miracles as well as praying for strong growth of the babies and for many more days in my belly! Every day continues to be a blessing and a huge benefit to their development!
Sending lots of love from the 6 of us!!
