An end in sight!

They finally made a decision today that we would deliver the end of next week! They understood my wanting Ben to be here for their birth and the fact that I was nervous holding out until he returned from his next round of chemo as they would probably not make it. So unless one of them decides they cannot hang on that long we will be delivering in 8-10 days! YAY!!!


Looks like we could deliver as soon as tomorrow. They decided to check Aubrey today only by u/s because of the diminished flow and it was actually absent today. This means her heart is working twice as hard to push the blood around so if she is still showing an absent flow tomorrow then they will be delivering Friday and if it goes reverse tomorrow then we will deliver immediately. If by chance it goes back to diminished and stays that way delivery is set for next Friday.


  1. Woohoo Kari. It is nice to know there is an end in sight and something to look forward to. I hope they make it that long, but if not at least you did the best you could. *hugs*

  2. Thats awesome Kari- I bet it feels SO good to have an idea of when these little babies will be joining you! I hope they hold off until next week and that Ben is present for the delivery:) Much love!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
