Big Update

Well, we never got back to posting again after August, but around mid October we got a little busy. One of the twins' membranes partially ruptured on the 19th, which they told us could mean a delivery within 48 hours, and this was when they were just past 28 weeks.

Julie was admitted to Brigham and Women's Hospital antenatal unit and began amazing the staff day after day by not delivering.

Three and a half weeks later, at 31 weeks and 6 days, we went down for her daily non stress test and it looked like she was having contractions. The doctor sent her to the labor and delivery floor, where they monitored her, gave her IV fluids, and waited to see if the contractions would stop. They didn't and the OB on duty called the pregnancy due to labor and scheduled the C-section.

On November 10th Thomason Joseph Carson was born at 6:09 pm, 4 lbs. 4 oz., 17" long and Natalie Rose Carson was born at 6:10 pm, 3 lbs. 10 oz., 15.5" long.

Here are some pictures.
