4 Years Ago

Has it really been 4 years?

4 years ...
since I packed my bags and left the comforts of my home
for the cold white walls of a hospital.
Where I sat day in and day out with monitors
strapped to my belly 24 hours a day in a hospital bed,
starring at two heart beats,
eating the delicious cafeteria food,
watching endless hours of 'A Baby Story' on TV,
getting woken up every night multiples times to 'find' my babies,
celebrating Valentine's day and my birthday in that room,
a room in which I left only twice in 7 weeks for 2 hours.
Somehow it feels like yesterday.

February 9th, 2006 I really began an incredible journey that
gave me two of the most important people in my life.
And I became a completely different person.
I became a mom.

What a sweet post! I was never put on bedrest but I had daily Non-stress tests for hours at a time and I remember them like yesterday. It was all worth it, wasn't it? Great post!

I remember when you went inpatient and it DOES seem like yesterday. I can't believe it either.

It's amazing to look back on that journey isn't it?
