The Baby 'Roids Have Started

Please let me start my telling you, I am not nearly as eloquent as my husband. I will just tell it like it is, so here goes....

So, I had a very unexpected start to my morning. The nurse came in with a very large shot and said we were starting the steroids today. She told me it was going to hurt and burn. Not good news! I figured when you want something bad enough, you will do whatever it takes to get there. So, I bared it and shared it. To be completely truthful, it really wasn't as bad as I expected. However, when I asked how often we had to do these shots and she said twice - I thought she meant twice daily. Not exactly what I signed up for but she really meant twice. Today and tomorrow and then no more. I thought "I can handle that." Tomorrow will be another shot and ultrasound to check my cervix again and to peek at the babies again. Nothing exciting to report for today - which is what we want!

Had a great visit with my parents today. They brought me non-hospital food - which is always a blessing. Mom brought me a few more things from home to help make me comfortable. I have pretty much moved into my room and made it mine. I figure this is my home for awhile - I might as well enjoy it! My Aunt Patti also stopped by to visit and I had a nice phone all from Cherish. All visits are and calls are greatly appreciated.

Jace said several have asked for an address here at the hospital. I have posted it on Facebook but I figure I might as well put it here too...
Jennifer Hills, Room 1146
Carle Foundation Hospital
611 W Park St.
Urbana, IL 61801

I will try to post as often as I can. Especially if there is anything new to report. Please keep praying that these babies keep "baking" for as long as they can!



  1. WoooHoooo! Sounds like things are going good at this point. I hope you enjoyed the pictures from the boys. They were excited to send something to the babies. The boys missed trick or treating you...if they were older and understood I think they would have wanted to "trick" you...They are actually REALLY wanting to TP somebody...but I don't think you are the top of the list. HA!! :)

    If you need anything let me know...books, movies, ?????? I have a sitter for the 11th so I will be able to come visit then. We have all had coughs and I hope they will be gone by then...not going to visit till they clear up. :)

  2. Kelli - I did appreciate the pics from the boys. Jace is bringing tape tonight so we can hang them in my room. So far, so good on the books and movies front. I had some books at home I wanted to get to and my in-laws brought me movies on Sat. Heather is supposed to bring me the Twilight movies maybe this evening. So I should be good for awhile but thanks for the offer. I will hopefully see you on the 11th.

  3. If your just now reading this post, her room was changed to 1142.
