Almost to 30, Keep Praying

Friends and Family:

I wanted to write and give you all a quick update. Yesterday morning our boys underwent another biophysical profile and once again each scored 8/8. This test can last up to two hours, but only took about 30 minutes this time. Each baby needs to meet 4 criteria in thirty minutes or less, which did not turn out to be a problem.

Please continue to pray for the safety of our babies. 30 weeks is yet another huge milestone to acheive and we are thankful that we are drawing close to it.

Also, pray for Jen's physical comfort and endurance as the rapid growth of the babies makes her more uncomfortable every day.

Last, Jen and I ask that you pray for her best friend Jamie who just had a baby at prematurely. Her little girl is still in the hospital. Jamie is also still in some discomfort. Would you all pray that Jamie could get some rest and be able to recover? Also pray that her little girl can come home soon.

Thanks friends!

I am so thrilled for Jen, to be nearing 30 weeks with 4 is SO amazing. I am wondering how she is even able to find a comfortable position to lay down! thank you for the regular updates.

Peyton and Paige and I are memorizing Psalm 34:4. I am sure that it isn't a new verse to you, but it is an excellent reminder for anyone going through a trial to hear.

"I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears."

We will be praying,
Sandy, P & P

Will be praying for you all. May the Lord grant you and the babies peace and health. His love is so amazing, and your journey thus far truly demonstrates that!

Still praying for you all! I rejoice with you in all the accomplishments each time I read them! God bless you in the final stage of the pregnancy and the beginning stages of raising His 4 little miracles!

Hi Jen & Brad!
Great scores! I have a Jonathan story: He's sitting on the potty and says (totally random), "You know Jen and Brad? They're having 4 BABIES! They're my cousins. I love them so much!"
We continue to pray for you and the boys daily.

Our pastor and his wife, Shane & Rachel, are down the hall from you guys in room 248. She's on bedrest for the next 2 months if you get bored and want someone to chat with. :o) I pray that you guys are having a great week. It's good to see the progress!

Hey Jennifer...just now leaving you a note. I read your blog daily but never left a comment. I've been keeping track of you and the babies from your Mom and anybody else who knows what's going on.

I still can't believe you're going to be a mom. Just seems like yesterday, you were coming over to me and Greg's house wanting to jump on the trampoline or swim in the pool or just play games. Those were the good ole days.

I hope to see you soon since I just live a couple of miles from the hospital. Your mom has my number if you need anything. Hang in there...you're doing a great job!!! I'm very proud of you and you know I love you...Patty Myers
