Last minute request

The doctors have determined that Jen needs to go on Magnesium Sulfate to protect her from preeclampsia side effects. Some people react more severely than others to this drug, but regardless, it is a terrible drug to be on.

Please pray that Jen would not react too severely to this drug.

See the message below if you have not heard about the c-section today yet.

We love you all,

Brad, Jen, and the Blue Crew

Hi Brad and Jen, I was so excited to see your post on the Momo board, it is a great day to have babies, two sets of momo twins will be born today!! I was on magnesium sulfate for 6 days and it was not fun, so I will pray that Jen does as well as she can. Also I will pray once she delivers, she can go off the mag quickly, I developed HELP syndrome and had to stay on the mag after I delivered. I am so exited for you all, please post as soon as you can!!!

Brad & Jen,
It is 9:40 (IL) time and I am praying. I am tearfully joyful for the precious boys that God is about to bring into this world. Praise the Lord once again for His faithfulness.

Jen and Brad,
I have been praying last night and this morning. I look at my watch and I know the time is drawing close. I know that mag is scary, and I am praying for Jen that she has special grace for it.

Hi Brad & Jen,
I've never posted, I am reading from BC, Canada and have enjoyed reading your blog and am thinking of you guys right now and all you have been through! This is an incredible moment for your family! I just wanted to say that I developed severe PIH with my pregnancy and was close to being given mag too - luckily I didn't have it, but I know many women with PE that did have the mag and although it's not fun, it is a life-saving drug and worth the uncomfortableness, and as SOON as she is off the mag. she will feel better almost immediately. Anyways, I am praying for you all today and can't wait to see the pictures and names of your little miracles!!!
