10/30 Update

Well, I had my ultrasound today and the news was not great. They confirmed that my water from Baby A did break and she is extremely low. Since the bag was no longer there, they couldn't tell how dialated I am from the ultrasound and are going to do an internal exam sometime later today. They had told me previously that nothing would change if my water broke so there is nothing new really. I am still getting antibiotics to keep infection away and they are still giving me meds to stop contractions. I have been having a lot more contractions too, so they are now giving me a couple of different meds to stop labor. I have also been bleeding a lot and they aren't sure why, but it doesn't seem like it could be good news.

I'm trying not to be really upset right now and remember all of the great stories, but it is hard. I feel like I could just go into labor at any time now and they won't be able to stop it. We just need a few more weeks! Please keep praying.

Jenny...Baby A is so strong, she must have your willpower. She needs you more than ever now as does her sister. Stay as comfy as possible and rub your belly where she's laying, if you can feel her vibrations, she must be able to feel yours, and what is more soothing than a mothers hand? Love you! Call me anytime, I'm home from work today. I'll keep the positive energy flowing in my mind to yours.

I am praying with you, Jenell. I wish I could say something more profound . . . I don't know how to express just how much I am thinking of you and how much love and healing I am sending you and your babies. I hope you can feel it. Hang in there. There is always hope. Always.

Janell...I occasionally lurk on Baby Center to see how everyone is doing and I was so devastated to learn you have been in the hospital. Please know that I am thinking of you and praying for you and your girls. Your positive thinking is inspirational and just proves how strong you are...keep it up!

Jenell, you and the girls are in my constant prayers. I found myself praying for you when I was doing laundry, of all things, an hour or so ago. I'm continuing to pray for the health of the girls, and for your peace.
All my best...

Hi Jenell, I read your story on BBC and have been following your story through your blog. My SIL had a baby girl in Jan. this year at 28 weeks and she was still born, in June they found out she was pregnant with twins as well and soon found out they were girls. At 18 weeks her water with baby A broke and the hospital did nothing! They sent her home to just let these babies die. Your hospital is doing everything and your progress is amazing. Even though your fluid is low there is still hope. My SIL was in such shock and even though we begged her to go back to the hospital she was so stunned and negative and the hospital was so negative about the situation they gave her no hope. We lost the girls last month at almost 19 weeks because her Drs weren't doing what yours are. They didn't give your meds and she got an infection and let her go about her day. I tell you this because your Drs are amazing for giving you this support. Don't doubt one minute that they aren't doing everything they can because with your positive attitude and your Drs. these babies are going to make it! You are amazing and what a great attitude. I just wish that my SIL was like you, I am sure our outcome would have been different.
