TWINS!!!!


Well, for those of you that haven't heard, I am officially pregnant! And, much to our surprise, pregnant with twins! We are so thankful for the miracles God has created! I have been going to a fertility specialists for about 2 years now to figure out why I wasn't having cycles or producing any estrogen on my own. I have hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) and osteoporosis in my back due to my lack of hormones. Some doctors thought I was in ovarian failure or premature menopause. We didn't know for sure if I would ever be able to get pregnant. Near the end of my very first round of fertility shots, our doctor suggested that we stop this round of treatment. However, after much prayer we felt led to continue for a few more days. Amazingly my body responded to these last treatments. We firmly believe it is the Lord who opens the womb and He has blessed us with two pregnancies! In my doctor's exact words "the fact that your body responded at all is medically remarkable". The Lord has answered our prayers in so many ways. I am 10 weeks today and so far everything looks good! I am considered high risk due to my hormone/fertility issues combined with having multiples! Please join with us in prayer as we thank the Lord for giving us the desire of our hearts and trust Him for the health and safety of these two babies!
