3:30pm OK Here we go. Brittany has been diagnosed with Preeclampsia, and as such they are more concerned for her health now. They have decided to start her on Pitocin to get her labor going and Magnesium to keep seizures away. With any luck we’ll have babies before diner. She enjoys reading your comments so don’t be shy. She thanks everyone for their support. I will let you all know when they come. -Jake

How exciting! I'm thinking about you guys every moment. You can do this, Brittany. You're almost to the finish line. It's nearly time to meet your two new little angels.

Oh my goodness! How can you look sooo good after all you've been through! Looking forward to the announcement in Sacrament Meeting. Of course by then the whole Stake will know! You go girl!

I can't stop thinking of that Bill Cosby skit about having a baby. You know the one where his wife pulls his bottom lip over the top of his head and says "You did this to me!". I think it is just my minds way of using humor as a distraction from the enormity of it all.
