Just to quickly update everyone… I was admitted to the hospital after our appointment yesterday. The NST showed deceleration (“d-cels”) in heartbeat of Baby B, and Dr. Barsoom decided to get me admitted right away to continuously monitor the boys. He cautioned us that we may be delivering sooner rather than later, as in today even…

Since being here, B has had a few d-cels, but has overall looked really good. I’m on 24 hour monitoring/bedrest.

I was given a round of steroids yesterday and the second round today. This will help to improve their lung function should they come early.

Dr. Barsoom left our room just a short while ago and was extremely positive and happy with what he was seeing. Sounds like we won’t be delivering as soon as originally though, which is fantastic, considering 28 weeks is still really early! Survival rate is very high, but there’s a reason 36 weeks is “term” for twins.

I’ll probably be in the hospital until I deliver, which is fine because I think being home without all the monitoring would be a huge source of anxiety!

We appreciate all of your prayers, thoughts, and well wishes. Our family and friends have been AMAZING. My mom and dad came down this morning and it was so good to see them. It’s also been awesome to see how many great friends we’ve made in Omaha. It’s hard being away from home at a time like this, and the fact that we have such a strong support system is such a blessing. These boys are going to enter the world into a group of a ton of loving people… just not for a LONG time yet 🙂

We’ll keep you updated, but right now… positive thoughts!

Adam, Trish and the boys

    Hey girl. I can’t wait to see you. I have been thinking about you non stop since I was told you were in the hospital. Looks like all those prayers have done you some good. I am very excited to meet those little stinkers, just not yet so lets keep them cooking :). I will miss you but we will come up from time to time to keep you company and see your progress.

    We were here when the Dr brought the news that things were looking up again and the pressure in the room really dropped. The boys are amazing! I am biased but these boys are destined for great things!

    Hi Adam and Trisha,

    I have been so worried for all of you! I’m glad you had some good news. I’m sure having the monitor on does help with your peace of mind.
