    For those that know me ingame either as Kariny Stormsong or Branwen I thought I'd fill folks in on where I'm going to be. Please feel free to let other folks like Ala/Lazlo, Elfbjorn, Bethany, Tae, or Miner know whats up.

    I went in for my weekly perinatal appt and went directly to the hospital. I'm hospitalized approx 2-2 1/2 hrs from home. They are keeping me till I'm ready for delivery or my littlest twin baby has more problems. I am 31 weeks now, but I might be here for a month possibly.

    So, no more UO for me. I'm on a hospital loner laptop right now. I'll try to drop in and keep up on the news on stratics as I can.

    Take care folks!*huggles*

    Well today is two weeks and we did find out that my little twin has gained 12 oz. He came in at 3.12lbs and baby A 4.10lbs.

    Still have the same problem with diastolic blood flow to B. They don't seem to concerned since he's incredibly active and breathing now in there.

    I'm still confined to my room and in bed most of the time. Mom has mostly moved in. The hubby has been pretty tired from work and working hard to get the house baby ready. He hasn't been down since I went in. That's ok though since this can be the most boring thing you can be stuck doing. Sitting, sleeping, incubating, eating, and doing tests. LOL

    Otherwise we're still hanging in there folks! *huggles everyone*

    I've been without a computer for a week or so due to a power surge that fried the harddrive. lol

    Anyhow I'm still hanging in there and both babies are still hanging in there. Cheer for Baby B because man is his umbilicale cord is small! He was doing really good then a week later he's back to having absent abnormal flow.

    My doctors and nurses lost bets. They figured I'd have dropped babies this weekend for sure. Here I am though and Baby B is a trooper.

    I'll drop a line hopefully again this week. If nobody hears from me for another week you can guess babies are here.

    I'll be sure to let Queen Mum know or Airmid when they get here.

    Thank goodness everything is ok Kariny. You keep that spirit up and trust that everything is ok. Thanks for keeping us updated! I know you are anxious to get home, but I for one am glad you are being taken care of. As always, sending you positive thoughts!

    Branwen this is B.K.
    I am glad to hear you are doin well, and B is fightin his odds.
    Cheers to your hubby for all his tireless efforts, good dads are few between these days. Nose to the grindstone Dad.

    Baby A, Look after your sib, and lend a hand.
    Baby B, give em hell, lil one, and be safe.

    I got a jar of catfish bait waitin for you up here in Iowa so you have plenty to start teachin them the 'family business'.
    LOL!

    Thank you everyone for the thoughts, prayers, and cards!

    I was released Monday 17th and it's been crazy since. Amazing what happens in the world when you disappear for a month!

    Jack and Sam are progressing very good in the NICU. Funny enough Sam, the one that got me in the hospital, is doing better than Jack. Figures the runt of the litter is the toughest!

    Things will be hectic since I'm over 100 miles from them. We will be home half the week and the rest at the hospital and a cousins house.

    Hopefully I'll bring them home in two weeks. That's the goal at least. Those babies may be ready but Mom and Dad are still running around like mad.


    *huggles to everyone*
     
  23. babies ...in stereo too no less! yay!!
    congrats lady
    hug them for me
    our daughter runs up and jumps in my arms like dino from the flintstones

    the fun is just beginning
    hug them, kiss them, and tell them how much you love them every now and then (if you can keep from doing it every min of every day)
    no words can express the joy you must be feeling
    i am so happy for ya

    We are home...at least it's home. Things seem really alien right now with two little bitty babies.

    Two little premie twins home already seems like they are rushing things but nobody could convince the kids of that. If I was still preggers this would be week 36!

    Sometime we'll get time inbetween the 3hr feedings to post a pic!

    *super tired already huggles to everyone*
