Can you spare me and my babies any prayers or good thoughts? One of my boys is not growing so well, and they may have to be born very prematurely. I'm scared!

I am only new here but i check every day to see if there is any news on your babies. I am pleased all is well. I know what those darn migraines are like i have suffered from them for years some times have what is called cluster migraines and they last for days. Any way enough of me. You keep well.

Cutiepie, I am so happy and relieved that all is well for now. God's grace IS sufficient. There is a reason that we were all united here, and it may just be you. How awesome is that? I don't know if you receive Guideposts or not, but there is an article by Deborah Norville, who used to suffer from migranes and she said that after she began journaling daily about the things she was thankful for, they have almost disappeared. Some sort of study on gratefulness showed less stress, etc. Anyway, I hope you find relief from that as you have enough going on right now. Peace be with you. hugs and love! ;)

So glad to hear all turned out ok. My prayers will continue to be with you. As I read your update a questions occurred to me. How did you decide which twin had which name?

cutiepie by cutiepie 16 Mar 2008

It's kind of funny how it came about. I wanted to name a son Daniel (for my maternal Grandfather). So, when I found out I was pregnant, Daniel was my choice if it turned out to be a boy. Then when it turned out to be twins (and boys as well), I went to a baby-name site. I started searching for another name that I liked, and when I entered Thomas, it came back that the meaning of the name was "Twin". That clinched it for me. The "other" boy needed to be named Thomas. When they do the regular, monthly ultrasounds for twins, they designate one as baby A and the other as baby B so that they can track growth. Since I decided on Daniel first, baby A became Daniel and therefore baby B was Thomas. It is just happenstance that Danny has grown bigger. Either one could have wound up the one having troubles.

Cutiepie, I have just seen all these encouraging words for you in your difficult time with the twins. Hold on to your faith. Glad that they managed to stop the premature births and gave Tommy more space to grow. You need to rest as much as you can. Its wonderful that you have a good family to support you. Big hug for you and the twins. A special one for Liam who must be worried about his Mommy and baby brothers.

Hi cutiepie,
It is always worring when babies are born early but most often it just means you get to see them sooner. I am mother to twin girls now 29 year old. they were prem babies. people said they would always be backward compared to single babies, but no way they have gone through university and now have excellent jobs. God is good. Praying for your family. Take care

Cutiepie, so good to hear from you, and see your smiling face. Pleased to hear that there's some good amongst all that you went through on Wednesday. Love you, and you take care of yourself and those beautiful twins. Hugs and flowers to you sweetie. So good to have you back, you've been missed.

Hi cutiepie I amm so glad to hear your news. I have just walked in from being away for two days and had to check in before I did anything else and to hear your news was very good

76321
by cutiepie 14 Mar 2008

Finally, I am back with more news. Yesterday (Wednesday), I spent 2 hours in Maternal/Fetal medicine while they "played tag" with my two little guys. They boys wouldn't stay still when the nurse tried to record their heart rates. Then, I got sent downstairs where I spent another 7 hours in Labor and Delivery trying to stop preterm labor. I was having contractions about every three minutes (although I only felt a bit more than half of them). The scariest part was when they changed fro just being pressure to actually hurting. We did eventually get the contractions to stop, and I am on a new medication to prevent them from starting again, but it was a very stressful and emotional day. To top it all off, I had a migraine today and didn't do much more than sleep while my husband's mom took care of Liam for me. Thank heaven for the Angels known as "Grandma".

On the bright side, the twins have shifted some so that Tommy isn't crushed into my ribs anymore. Hopefully now he will regain his growth pattern and get nice and big. I have not started dialating yet, and additional testing shows that I will not likely need to deliver in the next two weeks or longer, unless the contractions get out of control again, so there is definite good news in with the mess. Again, thanks to all who have been praying for me. I *KNOW* that it has helped, in more ways than one. How wonderful it is to find a new family where it is not expected. (On the computer? Of all places!)

Cutiepie,
I am Gramma to identical triplet girls. They were very high risk. 2 of them shared 1 sac and were not growing equaly. Now they are beautiful healthy 1 yr olds. Kallie is 2 lbs heavier than Emily. And the Drs say Emily will probably always be petite. But they are perfectly normal. Modern medicine is phenominal, but I truly believe that the prayers from total strangers all over the world played a major role in their wellbeing.
Like you I was scared. I requested prayers from several groups. The outpouring of love and concern was overwhelming.
I have been praying for your whole family since I read your first post.
Chin up, follow Drs orders, and let the prayers of others carry you through.
Please do update us on the boys. We all want to meet them when they are up to it.
Love to you all, MaryJo

Hon, even if they are premature, they usually do really well. I had 2 premature babies (at different times) and neither one of them had health problems. They were just tiny - but their growth caught up with normal babies quickly and they are parents themselves now. All will be well. God bless.

Thank you for updating us my sweet girl. I have a daughter that is 28 with an 11 mo old so I feel a little like mothering you. I wish that I could come cook and clean and play with little Liam and give you and hubby a break. I can't do those things, but why don't you let me pray & worry for you, just for today. Could you take a break? You just relax, I've got it for the next 24 hours. ;)

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I have not been in your situation. However, my first son now 27 months had to have cranial surgery at 3 1/2 months old. The saggital suture on his skull had fused before he was born. The surgery created 5 new openings in his skull, 4 small ( 2 on each side of his skull) one 1 bigger one on the top of his skull. The removal of the skull was to allow his skull to continue to grow. YOu would never know he even had surgery , but of course you can see the scar from ear to ear. We are very thankful for that scar though. God can work miracles. The Pediactric ICU said he was one of the fastest healing babies they had ever seen and one of the happiest. We live in North Carolina but are from Texas. We had a prayer chain almost from NC to TX with family in Gerogia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas.

He comforts us in all our trouble so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

by cutiepie 09 Mar 2008

Just a little update: nothing new, but nothing new either. In other words, no good news (Tommy [the one we're most worried about] hasn't miraclously gained a half pound or turned himself into head-down position or anything like that), but there is also no bad news (they are both still in utero and aside from four or five little contractions through the day today, they show no signs of needing "out" quite yet). If and when anything new happens, I will post and let you all know. Thank you all for being here for me. It means more than you will ever know.

Oh Cutiepie, we have been worried, but also we knew that God was watching you and the two little guys, nice to know Tommy's name, what is the other's? It sounds like you are in much better spirits and we like that. Don't forget to move your clock forward tonight, I know you hate that. But we don't want you getting up late tomorrow. HaHa. A flowr for you.

cutiepie by cutiepie 10 Mar 2008

Tommy's "big" brother is Daniel (most likely to be called Danny) and their older brother is Liam, short for William. We like to name our children for members of the family, and so Liam is named for his Grandpa Bill (hubby's dad), Danny is named for his Great-grandpa Dan (my mom's dad), and Tommy is named for his Great-great-grandpa Thomas (my dad's grandpa). I figure that if Great grandpa Thomas could survive fleeing from Krakow with his young wife to escape the army conscription, come to America not knowing any English at all, and then raise a family of 12 kids when his wife died, he must have been a pretty strong fellow and my Tommy will have a good person to be looking up to. PS, I DID get up late, but not because of forgetting to change my clock. =]

iris2006 by iris2006 10 Mar 2008

Hello cutiepie, don't forget that every little change in the right way for you all is a big step. Just hope that every dayu will be a little bit better day. Love, hugs and a flower

libster2896 by libster2896 10 Mar 2008

Hello cutipie, what wonderful and strong names, they are the same names that run in my family also, William (my nephew and great-grandfather and some 5 generations back), Daniel, my son and hubby's father, and Tommy, as Thomas, runs back many generations in my dad's side and would have been the name chosen if our second child had been a boy. The other names that go with Thomas have been Horace and Mortimer, I say, go with Tommy!!!!!!
Hope you are doing well and so are your boys. Hang in there, thoughts for you are obviously coming in from sewing rooms all over the world. Keep strong and positive, still thinking of and praying for you all, Libby

You are in my prayers from this day forward. Now, I hope you have a GREAT OB/Gyn who deals with high risk and a GREAT neonatal ICU hospital. My oldest daughter is a NICU nurse at one of the best hospital in Dallas, Tx. and if you would like her email address I'm sure she would be glad to help, and perhaps can address some of the issues you are facing not only from a nurse's perspective, but as a mother of 4. God bless you and your family. Susan

I wish that I could come and hold your hand and make it better, but I can only send you good things from my heart. There are miracles, and I will prayerfully claim one with your name on it. ;)

Cutiepie, I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will strengthen your heart and mind as well as your body as your children continue to grow and develop under His watchful care. Take comfort in God's Word. Psalms are comforting. Ps. 139 tells us that God knows us before we are born and He has a plan for each of us! Much love. Do you know Him?

Cutiepie, My prayers to you and your boys. I know prayers are answered and miracles do happen. I have personally seen several miracles including my youngest son who has survived brain cancer. With all the prayers from this wonderful group, your boys are bound to be one more of God's miracles. Just take it easy and have hope.

by libster2896 07 Mar 2008

Hello Cutiepie, was thinking about you all last night and have come to the conclusion that babies are our great faith restorers. They don't complain, they just need love and they can overcome the most amazing odds, including being born so early and all sorts of other medical dramas. They are the greatest fighters on earth and make us realise just what is really important, and just what we can overcome with a good dose of determination. Hang in there, and if you are afraid, that is nothing to be ashamed of, it just goes to show how much you love these children already, even though you haven't even met them in person yet, (despite carrying them and no doubt having been kicked about the ribs and the bladder a bit). I do understand your fears of a premature birth, as my second pregnancy was a placenta praevia (placenta over the cervix instead of up the top of the uterus) and the further along we went, the bigger the haemorrhage risk it became. Every bump put fear into my heart that I might start bleeding and not make it to hospital in time to save my little girl. When I did start to haemorrhage we were so lucky it was only 5 weeks early, and my little Jessica, after a slow start, just kept coming along strong as anything and now at one she has past her big brother in growth and weight. So often we hear about babies coming along early, and within a year you would never know anything could have been wrong, and so often these babies are so much stronger through lifes difficulties than others who started out with no dramas at all. Have faith in your babies strength that they have already shown by making it this far, and they will take strength from the love you have for them. We will all continue to think of and pray for you, your family and your boys.

Oh Cutiepie, I just wish so much that I could come over there and just give you the biggest hug ever, and hold you close and just *fix* things for you. You, and your family, have my thoughts, prayers and good wishes that all will go right for you and the twins. I'm sending you and the twins loving, healing and calming thoughts, and even though we're kms/miles apart I know that they will reach you all and help. When I do my meditation I'll visualise your tiny twin growing in size and strength, and catching up with his brother. And even though I can't be there in person sweetheart, you'll be in my thoughts all the time. I love you Cutiepie, you, and those twins, are special. Love, hugs, kisses, flowers and all the best wishes, thoughts and prayers in the world to you and those very precious twins. XOXOXO

I wish you the most luck in continuing your pregnancy for as long as possible. I know these are scary times. I am a RN in the NICU and the good news for your babies are that premature babies have much better changes survival and fewer complications from being born early than in the past. How many weeks are you into your pregnancy?

4 comments
cutiepie by cutiepie 07 Mar 2008

I will be 31 weeks tomorrow. I know that babies survive being born that early, and even earlier, but I don't want them to have to go through all the struggles that come with being premies. My nephew was a 33 week birth, and it hurts my heart to see how much more difficult things are for him than his brother. Thank you so for your good wishes.

tmjanecek by tmjanecek 07 Mar 2008

Do you know if your boys identical? Are you having more than two?

cutiepie by cutiepie 07 Mar 2008

There are just the two (boy is it strange sounding to say "Just" two) and we aren't sure if they are identical. They are in separate sacs and have separate placentas, but it is still a definite possibility that they will be identical.

tmjanecek by tmjanecek 07 Mar 2008

I have seen identical twins who had separate placentas and sacs once, so it is possible... Identical or fraternal, I know they are loved, already. Good luck, and definitely take it easy!

Thank you. I know that God can do the seemingly impossible; I am having twins, after all, and without medical intervention to get them on the way here(unlike my older son).

Oh Cutiepie, what could I say to make you feel better, what could I do to make it all better, if only I could sprinkle some magic fairy dust to make it all better, but I can't ... so I offer my prayers along with everyone else and just hope and pray with all our might and wish for the best for you and your babies. As a woman it is one of the greatest joys, but at times like this, it is very scary. Warm hugs for you and your babies. Take care and hang in there the best that you can. It's amazing how at times like this we gain new found strength that we never knew we had. So hold on tight and B-E-L-I-E-V-E !!!!

What can you say to make me feel better? You said it all right here in this sweet message. Knowing that I have sisters I have never met pulling for me and my babies is among the best medicine available.

Cutiepie, I wish Utah wasn't so far away, I'd come & hold you through your very understandable fear. My best prayers, good thoughts & wishes are with you & your whole family right now, as always. Pull up the "In God's Hands" design on SiCK, the one with the baby, and *know* in your heart that's true. Those babes are so physically close to your heart, they'll hear, I'm sure. Soul Doctor gave good advice, too. It's normal to be scared, just don't let fear win. Believe the best, because so very much can be done these days that couldn't be even a few years ago. I love you, dear heart, as so many others here do, hang on to that, and to your faith. How I wish I could do more for you, dear dear lady! Marji

Hello cutiepie,
From Spain I wish you all the strenght you need. M y granddaughter was born 10 weeks earlier in 2006 and she fighted for her live, her weight was just 1.100 grams. She fitted in the palm of our hands. Now she is a wonderful girl, a little bit smaller than the children of her age and of course leighter in weight. So please keep hope and trust, os course this is difficult and it brings a lot of worries but only hope can pull you and your family trough. Excuses for my English bur I hope you can understand.

Love and hugs and of course the flower

Gracias! Te amo! My Spanish has deteriorated greatly from the year I spent in Spain (Oviedo), but my love for the people of Spain still thrives. I'm grateful that it is being returned so well by you.

Salam (Peace) to you Cutipie and your family--

For a number of years I served as a hospital chaplain. The others that have written are right. God does work in mysterious ways. I have witnessed it time and time again.

Also, knowing others are praying with you has a calming and strengthening affect which is bebeficial to you and your babies.

Do you have some favorite music (either sacred or secular) that speaks to your heart and soul? If so, when you become anxious and feel hopeless, lie down and turn on the music. Place your hands on the babies and try to envision your favorite time or place. You will find that you will enter a state of relaxation and it will also relax the babies. This is important, because when you are stressed, they feel that stress as well.

My prayer is that you find joy,peace and strength during this difficult time.

--Soul Doctor

WOW!!! Your little guys really didn't spend that much time in the NICU! They were only around 32 weeks when they left the hospital and our patients (I am a RN in the NICU) usually leave when they are closer to 37-40 weeks.

marymoore by marymoore 07 Mar 2008

yes the nicu was great very good nurses and doctors but for the most part it was the nurses they were great

tmjanecek by tmjanecek 07 Mar 2008

I am glad to hear that you had a good NICU experience.

marymoore by marymoore 08 Mar 2008

yes it was great it was the knoxville tennessee childrens hospital i stayed at the ronald mcdonald house and the twins even was on tv for a childrens miracle network telethon my girl was in what they call a giraffe(?spelling)the nurses are who i praise

tmjanecek by tmjanecek 10 Mar 2008

Yes, you are right with the name Giraffe. It is the brand of bed (incubator).
The nurses play a very large part when it comes to a parent's experience while their baby is in the NICU. I have a few friends who have had babies in the NICU. None of them really have anything nice to say about their experience. It is nice to hear that not all parents feel that way. I always try to make my patients' parents' experience as pleasant as possible.

Said a prayer for you and your babies as soon as I read the message. I've seen God work many miracles with my own babies and now my grandbabies. He'll do the same for you. It's only natural to be afraid, but with everyone's prayers you trusting God for yourself and your littles ones, He will be with you. I await a GOOD REPORT!

Not spare prayers, endless prayers for you and your babies and family. I hope all goes well, and remember, those midwives and nurses (God's angels in disguise I'm sure) in neo-natal units are so passionate and skilled about what they do that I'm sure you and your babies will be in wonderful and loving hands, as well as the love of their mother and father and family, your babies will flourish.
