Our first milestone

Today we reached a big milestone – 24 weeks! Happy Viability Babies! We’ve come so far, but we still have a while to go. Hopefully at least 6 more weeks! I cannot believe we’ll be parents of quads in a few weeks!! In the last week I was able to connect with a lot of quad mommas. I actually feel like we are not alone and knowing that there are so many other families out there that went through the same thing and did great, that is very encouraging for us. There are a few families with quads here in GA, I even spoke on the phone to a Mom that has 2 year old quadruplets, born at Northside Hospital, same place where we’re going to meet our babies for the 1st time. So now I feel relieved because whenever I have a question or a concern, I know where to find answers. It is amazing to see how all these women and their families. I can relate to them so much!

faithI have to say… I am a little scared. Sometimes a lot. I pray that God gives me strength for what is yet to come. I feel how my body is transforming just to be able to bring these babies into this world. It’s a lot going on in a short period of time and that affects me. I am doing my best to have a good attitude about it but at times I feel low and worried. These precious babies deserve the best and I just wish we would have a better scenario planned out. Honestly, this never happened to us before. Every plan we make, it falls through. But God always comes up with a better one. It’s just that sometimes we have to wait longer than other times and this waiting is driving me crazy. This is by far the biggest faith test we ever had and it is not easy!

I would like to ask you again to keep us in your prayers. To be able to reach 30 weeks and pass that as much as possible. To have healthy babies and a healthy mommy and last but not least a healthy daddy! He is working hard and I know he would like to do more. I know he has a lot on his mind but he doesn’t want me to worry more than I do. And I also know that he would do anything for our babies and for me. I appreciate that so much but sometimes I don’t show it. He is the only one that I would have ever chosen to be by my side on this journey.

  1. Big big day today! A huge weight has been lifted off of many shoulders 🙂 We’ve all looked forward to this day and, as much as we are hoping and praying that the quads stay in your belly as long as possible, it is wonderful to know that they’ve reached this point. We are all grateful and oh so relieved! Love you all.

  2. Felicitari mandro, ma bucur enorm sa iti citesc toate postarile, si sa vad ca pana acum totul merge bine. Ma rog ca Dumnezeu sa aibe grija de voi toti, si stiu sigur ca daca El a ingaduit sa aveti parte de o asemenea minune, tot El va va calauzi si va va da puterea de a merge pana la capat. Va pup si mi-e tare dor de voi.

  3. Congratulations on this milestone! It is a BIG deal, but you CAN even go further =) I’m so happy you are now part of our larger quad mama community. I promised they’d make you feel “normal” and you could even ask those embarrassing questions. There, you are accepted. I remember meeting my first quad mom in person and it was such a wonderful feeling to know there was another person in the flesh who could totally relate. I’m so glad you found a GA mommy who could do that for you. So cool! You are always in my prayers- for a sense of calm to wash over you and Oly and for the entire family to grow strong and healthy. Bear hugs!

  4. I’ve always thought about God watching a little brown sparrow with love. I bet He’ll do a great job with your four little birds.

  5. You can do all things throu Christ. I never believed this as much as I did until I found out we were carrying four. Did I sometimes doubt it? Yes but eventually I always found peace and knew we were chosen for this journey just as you and Oly have been. The support you will get from other quad momma’s is unbelievable. We all go through the same things at some point and we are totally normal to each other! So when you have your down days just reach out to us. We have been in that exact spot. You have done amazing and you have less than 4 weeks until the next HUGE milestone. The tough days do pass. I had one around 25 weeks and posted about it here http://thelittlestlesnaus.blogspot.com/2012/07/feeling-defeated.html.

    • I actually already read that post! And I cried while I was reading it because I felt like you knew me and I felt like you knew exactly what I am going through. I am thankful to have wonderful quad mommas supporting me, besides our family and friends. Because you guys know all this, you walked in these shoes. Thank you for taking time to read my blog! You have a beautiful family and 7 precious angels!

      • Only those that have high order multiples can truly relate which can be frustrating at times. Thankfully the Internet has helped so many if us connect.
