Yesterday I discussed with him 2 wonderful things that have come from all this "crap" we've been dealing with.
- Had we suddenly found out I was having twins during a busy time at Dana's work, or when he wasn't in need of a month off for his eye surgery, I would not have qualified for medical care through the state. I have insurance, but without the state coverage, we would now owe thousands of dollars in co-insurance for the surgery and follow ups on our boys. And so I'm thankful for the financial hardships we have had.
- Having a high risk pregnancy has 1 great benefit, we get to see our babies a lot! I had 3 ultrasounds with Kaia. 2 quick ultrasounds at 9 and 12 weeks and the in depth one at 20 weeks. With Mo we also got 3. One to confirm pregnancy at 9 weeks. One at 18 weeks. And finally one at 32 weeks. With Brendon and Bryce we've had... I've lost count. A TON of ultrasounds. We've also had some 3D photos taken, and we've seen them live on video (a video I'm still trying to upload somewhere and edit for you all to view). This has really helped us both to bond with our boys. And now the latest 3D ultrasound:
The boys at 24 weeks 4 days. Bryce is on top, Brendon on the bottom. Brendon kept putting his head up against Bryce's face, so that was the best shot she could get. Now, just who do you think they look like?
Check out Brendon's chin. Then check out this cutie:
