Heather week #28

When I called Heather yesterday she'd had a discouraging week. Her ultra-sound on Tuesday revealed her cervix is even shorter than when she was admitted about 5 weeks ago. She also strained some muscles in her belly, which is super painful.

Bright side? Babes are doing well!! Very well! Still growing, and staying put..which is the goal.

This week say a little prayer for Heather. 5 weeks in the hospital with as many as 11 more to go might just seem a tad overwhelming. Bad days..even bad weeks are allowed! BUT for the record I've hardly seen the bad days with this one!! She remains so upbeat, so positive, I'm just amazed.

Quick side note..when I was almost 30 weeks pregnant years ago with my twin babes..I DID NOT look this good!! Seriously!! What a beauty.
She wears motherhood well.

Project Heather

This dear sweet girl is very busy..she is busy growing twin babies in her petite belly:) She is not due until April but was hospitalized right before Christmas..the Dr's have not said a word about her returning home (until the babies are safely born) this means she has a little bit of a hospital stay ahead of her..all for the sake of the precious life she has growing inside her belly.

What an inspirational Momma!

A few weeks ago as we were chatting, we came up with the great idea of capturing her weekly growth on camera..she wanted something to look back on as well as a way to chart her progress.. thus begun Project Heather.

So the question is how does one take flattering, artistic pictures when your beautiful subject cannot sit up for more than about 5 minutes and you are in a hospital room with one tiny little window?? The answer is..very quickly!! Luckily she is a very willing subject who is just as sweet as can be, sure makes it easy on me!

I'm hoping to post pictures every week, along with the culmination of the birth. It's always such an honor to be included in a another woman's journey, please join me in Heathers.
