Baby Squared

Just a quick note to let you know that my sister Carrie is having her twin babies today!  These are special little girls who came in a whirlwind and will be entering the world a wee bit early.  At Carrie's 20 week appointment, her and her hubby found out that they will be having identical twin girls.  The good news was they were not conjoined, but the bad new is they were Monoamniotic Twins.  This means they share the same sac.  And in addition to this rare and high risk pregnancy, their cords are entangled which is one of the many risks. 

Carrie has been in the hospital for a couple weeks now for close monitoring and they opted to have the girls at week 32 based on the stats of survival.  They have a better chance as premie's than they do staying in the womb and taking the chances.  I can't imagine the mental and emotional struggle that they went through to come to these decisions.  This is so out of the realm of a normal pregnancy. 

But we are believing in faith that these girls are coming and there will be no complications at all.  God is so good and has been very powerful in our lives.  I am personally still in awe that they are having these babies today!  I feel like we just found out they were having a baby - time flies man. 

Any prayers you can offer up would be much appreciated today.  I believe it will be a joyous day!
