So many people have asked for an update on how I'm doing... well, today was a big day!!! I got to have my PICC line removed! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰
I'm so grateful to this itchy and annoying little purple monster for allowing me to receive nutrition when I couldn't eat or drink. But I am finally coming out of the woods and it was no longer needed!
I am functioning at about 40-50% of my normal and I get a little better each day. Hypermesis is awful and I pray someday they find a way to make it go away. But for now, I'm focusing on getting stronger and growing these two babes!
Oh, and for those who asked, the twins are di/di or fraternal! Just a few more weeks until we find out the genders!!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’™

Some of you I've known from my the very start of your life, others have lived so much life before I even knew you. But now, you all call me Mom. What an incredible story God has written for all our lives, to bring us together... from all corners of the earth.
Today, I just praise God for each of your lives, and know that I am a richly blessed woman and a better person because of each one of you ๐Ÿ’—

My sister @joyfulchaosmama was able to find both babies heartbeats โค๏ธโค๏ธ!!! So crazy to hear them flipping around in there! The number for baby two wasn't accurate in the screen... both babies have been 160-170+
Fast little heartbeats!!!!
We still have a few more weeks until we find out genders... what do y'all think? Any guesses???

When papa stops by ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I swear, grandpas main function is to rile up he kids. They could be totally silent and still, but when Papa arrives, it's chaos!
