A Sigh of Relief:)

Hey Everyone,
  I would apologize for not writing as frequently as I was, but me not writing means no news...and I can't complain about that! We all were in desperate need of a slow down and finally we got it!

 Along with a wonderfully boring week we were surprised with good news! At my doctor appointment, during the ultrasound we saw a significant change in the blood has reduced to half it's size and there is no active bleeding! For the first time in months I got to take in a deep breath followed by a glorious sigh of relief! 

After my ultrasound I was consulted on my official diagnoses by my OB. I have an extreme case of "Placenta Previa" this means the Placenta is directly above my while discussing this syndrome we also discussed my birthing plan. I will be delivering via CSection between 33 weeks and 36 weeks. Typically twins can be carries full term but usually are delivered by 37 weeks. I can not go into active labor so these babies will be pre term. I will continue to be monitored every 2 weeks rotating between my normal OB and the specialist until my 3rd trimester, at that time one doctor will take over and we will decide which hospital will be the birth place of these two healthy little girls!

Speaking of the twins...I have been informed baby A has a name! In English her name would be Grace although in France it sounds very different! I am so excited to put a name with this little drama queen and I look forward to hearing Baby B's sweet name soon!

Thanks everyone for following this journey it's over half way over and I don't know what I would do without your support and words of encouragement! There's a bumpy and emotional ride ahead but there is no doubt that with friends and family like you I will continue to move forward in the most positive way! Thanks again!
