An Update From Andrea: Sense Of Humor Intact, No Babies Yet

I just wanted to give you all a quick update on Andrea, who was admitted to the hospital two days ago. Her twin girls still haven't arrived. Here's what she wrote this afternoon:

Still waiting to give the steroids time to kick in and work their magic. I haven't seen my doctor yet, but we probably won't know anything for sure until tomorrow afternoon, when they stop the mag bag*. (Listen to me, usin' nurse speak and all!)


Catch up on Andrea's story, from her struggles to conceive to the bond she has with her two boys, who were adopted.

*A "mag bag" is literally a bag filled with magnesium sulfate, which is used to stop contractions.
