25wks 4days

Today K is 25+4wks pregnant, which is a significant point in this pregnancy for me, and I'll be very, very happy to move past this point. 25+4wks is the exact day when I gave birth to Myles. I am crossing my fingers, begging the universe, and hoping with all my might that these babies don't make such an early entrance into this world. I'm somewhat comfortable with the boys coming a few weeks early, but not any earlier than 34weeks! I do get the real possibility of them being born prematurely, particularly with twins, but I know that I just can't have two more micropreemies. And I definitely don't think I could survive the loss of another child. Tonight I will drink some wine with "my girls" and try not to think about it...

Been thinking of you all day! Much prayers and positive thoughts sent your way!
Myles will never be far from my heart!

Your plan to distract sounds like a good one. I - and all of your Internet buddies - will be thinking of you, of Myles, and of the two precious babes who are safely gestating with no plans of coming any time soon.

I will be praying for the babies and for them to continue to cook for another 10 weeks. The plan of distraction is a great one.

Sorry I've been such a lousy commenter.

Hang in there, girl. With K's uterus, these boys may go full term. Enjoy your wine. Whatever you need to get through this. You and ALL your boys are in my thoughts.

Fear is a powerful thing. Fight fear with wine!!

Continued peace to the pregnancy, you, Kay, and the boys.

I have been following your blog after "meeting" you on soulcysters. I am so happy to see that K has made it this far. I wish you nothing but all the joy and happiness you deserve. May God bless your all your little ones.

Sweet Niki, I am holding you in my heart today and always as you pass this tremendously important milestone. I continually pray that Silas and Liam will stay exactly where they are for at least nine more weeks! We can deal with 34 weekers! I wish I had more words of wisdom or comfort for you, but please know that even if I haven't stayed in touch like I should...you, Josh, K, Myles, Silas and Liam are in my thoughts many many times a day. Every time I think of you, I say a prayer for the boys, for you, for K and her rockstar uterus, and for comfort for you for the coming weeks. I know these weeks will be hard with the holidays without Myles...Myles' birthday and anniversary of his death. I want you to know that I am here for you any time of the day or night if you need someone to talk to, cry to, scream at the universe with, anything. I love you my friend, and I am praying with all my heart that these boys are born safely and as close to full term as possible. :)

Have a glass for me - and I too am hoping that they stay put for at least another 10 weeks.

Niki, having been there, I totally get your fear and send you big hugs >:D<

Those babies of yours are firmly STUCK in K's tummy with no plans of an extra early arrival. K's looking healthy, and I'm positive that you're watching over her like a hawk looking for any niggling sign of PE too! ;) Also, these little fellas aren't IUGR, so these are signs that it really is going to go well and you, my dear, are going to be a proud mamma to 2 darling little boys who are going to cause mischief and mayhem and be loved to bits.... and like Idgie said - 34 weekers are a walk in the park c.f 25 weeks - actually, they're on a different universe in terms of NICU stays as we recently discovered - so if that's you in 9 weeks time, you'd be home in a blink - with two 'take home' varieties :)

25+4 is a fantastic milestone! Congratulations!!

Thinking of you and Myles and Liam & Silas. This is a major hurdle to overcome.
