Just a few more days....

We officially only have a few days left before we are parents. My blood pressure has continued to increase over this past week, and Wed. night I was admitted to the hospital. My BP at home was 150's/100's so my dr. decided that it was time to come into the hospital. It was still high when we got here Wed, and my dr was very close to delivering them that night. But thankfully we waited a little while and my BP came down over night. He has decided to keep me here till delivery which will be Tuesday 9/29/09!! (my mom, by the way, is so excited about the fact that they will be born on 9/29/09..... she has been hoping throughout my whole pregnancy that they would be born on this day, she likes the way it sounds.... crazy MiMi) I had a sono with the perinatologist yesterday and he recommened that we deliver at 37 weeks. Both he and my dr. feel that it's not worth the risk of trying to go past 37 weeks. So we finally set a date yesterday for the big day (it sounds like I'm getting married). The babies looked great when they did the sono, they both measured at 5lbs. 9oz. So hopefully they will weigh close to 6 lbs each. We'll find out how accurate the sono measurements really are! So we are just going to wait patiently a couple more days for our little babies arrival. Being here in the hospital the last few nights has really made me thankful that I was able to be at home for most of my bedrest. There is just nothing like sleeping in your own bed. There are some women here that have been on hospital bedrest for months.... I can't even imagine! Thanks again for all of your prayers, texts, and emails. We really appreciate all of the support and encouragement. We will let yall know when they get here or if anything changes before next Tuesday!
