Update on the Twin girls, Keep praying!!!

I stole this from Jen's notes.... :)

Good news! Today they measured the babies to see how they have grown from two weeks ago. Baby A (first initial of her first name is A., so I call her A. Hope because we are not sharing names yet) now weighs about 10 ounces. The amniotic fluid in her sac has decreased from 9 cm to 8.1 cm since Friday (this is good, because she had too much)! Her heart is doing good and all other measurements, etc. look good. Baby B (first initial of her name is H., so I call her H. Grace) now weighs 7 ounces. The amniotic fluid in her sac has INCREASED from 3.2 cm to about 4 cm since Friday!! Their weights two weeks ago were 4 and 6 ounces respectively. She still has absent diastolic blood flow (she is only getting blood flow when her heart contracts, not when it rests). But overall the doctors are very happy that things are not getting worse and are holding steady (maybe even slightly improving)! So, I will continue to have weekly appointments and will continue on full bedrest and the extra protein diet, but if things can just hold steady or continue improving it will be amazing! I am so thankful for the good news and we just thank God for his peace and for watching over our little girls. We pray that they continue to grow and H. Grace's blood flow improves. We appreciate everyones prayers, kind thoughts and help!
