Hey everyone! It's Brooke, Brittany's sister. Just thought I would give you an update on my sister.
Brittany reached her 34 week mark yesterday. YEA!!!!! Baby A and Baby B are both between 4.5 and 5 pounds each. Brittany has been on "absolute bed rest" for 7 weeks now, which means she can only get up to go to the bathroom. She visits the hospital every week and has come to hate IV's with a passion :) Brittany has Pregnancy Induced Hypertension. They are watching her closely and are having her take meds for high blood pressure and another med to stop the contractions. They are also treating her for gestational diabetes. She has spent a few nights and days in the hospital but all is well and she is being closely watched.
I will keep you updated when she goes into labor. For now though, she is surrounded by her kids and husband and is in good spirits, despite the constant pain and exhaustion. She is so excited for the babies and for the opportunity to get her body feeling better and on the mend.
Keep her in your prayers please! Thanks.
