27 Weeks!

Brittany was admitted to GW Hospital 20 days ago and she was 24 weeks, 1 day pregnant. As of today, Brittany is 27 weeks pregnant. Praise God. The new goal is 28 weeks.

As you can probably tell, Brittany and Gaines are both fine. I have to quit posting...Brittany wants me to get her a doughnut.

Not only do I genuinely care about you and Gaines but this has become part of my morning ritual. I'm always so anxious to find no news and usually some humor, I think it's amazing how positive your attitude is! I'm so glad you have made it this far!

Go Brittany,
Have 2 or 3 while you're at it.

I'm so glad all is going well. Still praying in Alabama.

I would have to agree, this has become a morning routine for myself as well.

I am so thankful you have made it this far!

Yum, donuts. Hope you are staying sane, I've been "bedridden" for 4 weeks (6 to go) and just find some sort of comfort and sanity in knowing I'm not out there alone! And congrats on looking more preggers! I feel like I am just looking like I've had too many nachos and hot dogs!

Hello!
I've been following you guys for almost a week now. Your story is amazing!

Although I have no idea what it must be like to be in your situation, I do know what it is like to be sent on a journey you would have never imagined. To see God's amazing work and His wonderful people. (and learn a LOT of medical "stuff"!) :)

Thanks so much for sharing your story. We are praying for all of you!

Get the girl her doughnuts! But first, thank you for taking time to give us "Brittany & Beau junkies" our fix! I'm especially sending up prayers to our Awesome God this morning for His continued goodness. I am LOVING how we are getting to see His hand moving in all of this. Here's to another long, boring day for you two! It's COLD here! Whohoo on 27 weeks! Now on to 28 we go! We'll pray you through!

Roll Tide, Jxn, Penni & the boys

Congratulations!!! Man, it must feel like you guys are running a marathon! I remember the NICU doctors told me that getting my 26 weeker home would be a marathon not a sprint. Running it on this end with Gaines still growing healthy inside has got to be SO much better for everyone. Praise God!!!

Yay for doughnuts! I don't know if you guys are Krispy Kreme people or Dunkin Donuts people (I personally only like KK's if they are warmed up, otherwise I prefer DD), but there is a DD on campus less than two blocks away from the hospital.Yummy!
