Pregnancy update

Once again, I thought I should take some time and let everyone know how things are progressing. THANKFULLY, we have made it 3+ weeks since this started and are in a much better place. (not out of the woods, but better) As of today, we are at the 26 and 5 mark (that's hospital lingo for almost 27 weeks.....lol) A few days ago, we had an ultrasound and the babies are doing great and at or above the 2 pound mark . Definitely small, but well on their way. They also "checked" Kelli and it doesn't appear that she has dialated anymore or that her cervix has changed. We did have a little bit of a scare on wednesday as they wanted to run a "test" and take Kelli off the medication (Nifedipine) to see how she did. Well......it didn't take but a day and she started having contractions to the tune of every 2 minutes. They rushed us over to the labor and delivery (L & D) department just in case and they were able to juice her up and get the contractions controlled.
We still have our sights set on our next goal of 28 weeks, but are thankful for every passing day.
I should also mention that we felt like we should give our little girls some names as "Baby A" and "Baby B" just wasn't cut'n it anymore. So.....we named "Baby A" Addison Taylor and "Baby B" Emree Ann.
I want to thank everyone for keeping us in their thoughts and prayers, the flowers, the phone calls, and the visits.......It means more than words can express!!!

I just wanted Kelli and Alan to know that you are still in our daily thoughts and prayers. Hope to see you soon. I will be out in a couple days.

It's good to hear that things are going well for everyone. We love the names, but you better watch out when Teri hears that you stole her name! As always, we are praying for you and thinking of you. Love you guys & gals!

When Jesse and Ash came up to the hospital and we told them, they mentioned something about TL liking the name Addison. (oh and some threats she had made to siblings and spouses) I guess great minds think alike. I hope she will forgive us.....if not TL you had better get crack'n....you're 27 weeks behind!! ;)

I'm glad things are going well! Keep us updating. And wow - word gets around! Addison Taylor may just end up having a cousin with the same name. :) Luckily I do have a few other names up my sleeve...;)
