Well we did not put any money down, but for fun we all put our bets down on when the girls would be born. My parents, her parents, laura, my sister in law even picked today.
Well we had a follow up appointment today since Allyson was put in the hospital this past Sunday and Monday. Unfortunately, Allyson has all the symptoms of preeclampsia. So for the next 24 hours, Allyson gets the fun task of collecting a 24 hour urine sample. If the labs come back positive, he is pretty sure that he will bring her on in on Monday to induce labor.
The funny thing about life is sometimes the things that challenge you really do have their purpose and reason. Dr. Ross let us know that if the test does come back positive, the pre-term labor she has been experiencing might have actually been a blessing, preparing her cervix for labor. Proof that God is always in control and has a plan for us all, even my unborn little girls.
So who will the winner be, if the test comes back positive, it looks like there are two people in the running, myself with October 1, and Ms. Sizemore with October 2. If the test comes back negative, I would guess Laura is looking pretty good with the 6th.
If you are one of the 4 readers of the blog, check back Monday and I will be posting either an update to this entry, or a new entry announcing the birth of our two little girls.
Thank all of you again for your thoughts and prayers.
