24 weeks. 168 days. 241,920 minutes.

This is where we are right now.  This is how long  I have been pregnant with you two.  This is the day I have dreamed about since I was 17 weeks pregnant with you.  Every day since then I have held my breath, praying that we would make it this far and even farther without another re-bleed from the placenta.  As I sit here writing this I am trying to think if there has ever been a day in my life where I was more scared.  And there hasn’t been.  On our way to the hospital that night, we thought we lost the two of you.  As a parent, I cannot think of anything more devastating.

And not only are we at 24 weeks this week, but we also got very wonderful news at our latest ultrasound on Monday.  Only a marginal previa now, and it seems like the real danger is past us now :)  Baby A is 1 lb 11 oz, and Baby B is 1 lb 8 oz.  Both of your heart rates are 152.  I am floating on cloud 9 this week and feel such relief!  And now I can’t stop thinking about the two of you all day and can’t wait to meet you and hold you in my arms in 3 months!
