We went to the Dr. on Monday and got mashed some more. Sorta like potatoes. Spudruplets. We are all doing just fine. Growing every day, and our hearts are beating about 150 times every minute. This is the only time Mom and Dad can watch us; ... if they only knew. The Dr. told Mom that hopefully she would not be put on hospital bedrest until around week 30. He told her 26 weeks before. That made Dad very happy, because he said "What!? Whatever happened to 26 weeks?" Probly he was afraid he wouldn't know what to do since Mom's always helping him know. He doesn't have much time to write to y'all since he turned into a slave. And there's really not much to say right now because we're mostly just waiting to get born. Dad don't like to write about stuff that don't matter. He thinks 'if you're gonna bring it, bring it big.' So we're just chillin for the time being, and running out of space quickly. We hope to be out soon because there's not enough womb in here for the 4 of us. We gotta go. Love y'all, please pray for us, Goodnight., CrimQuads

Just a little background for those who don't know. Jo Ann and I found out in May that we were pregnant via blood testing. The week after that an ultrasound revealed that she was actually carrying twins. We were scheduled for another exam the following week. Imagine our surprise to find FOUR tiny heartbeats during this visit, not to mention our reluctance to return the following week for yet another. Today we are holding at four babies in the middle of week 24. Our 20 week scan was scheduled at a fetal maternal clinic in Birmingham. Each baby was measured and evaluated from head to toe. While we were there the Drs. found 3 boys and 1 girl,....Perfect! Jo Ann feared no girls, I feared all girls. The babies were all doing very well, each was about 6 inches long and 1 boy weighed 15 ounces, the rest were 11 ounces each. We would like to see the weights consistent and hoped for the smaller ones to catch up. This past Monday we had our weekly scan and our monthly measurement. All are still doing very well, and this time each baby weighed 1 pound 7 ounces. Jo Ann went on bedrest Monday July 21. Her new dental practice opened May 6, pretty sure we wouldn't have timed it suchly (old forgotten adverb). She tires very quickly after minimal activity and is restricted to the bed or the recliner, except to shower and use the bathroom. If you're a husband who doesn't recognize your wife's contribution in the home, get her pregnant. A bit off topic here, just wanted to catch up with our progress. Again, no blog whiz here; I'm just about as proficient with IT as I am a bagpipe. I will try to get some pictures posted when I find time, there's not lots of extra, just extra babies. Our intent here is to use this medium as an informational resource, and maybe even a keepsake. (Assuming it's something worth keeping for the sake of anything.) Hopefully the grammer gestapo will give me a pass on spelling, comma splices, congujation and all that. We both appreciate all the support, encouragement and prayer from all of you. Until next time, if you want twins, don't both of you pray for it.

Welcome to the CrimQuads weblog. Hopefully this blog will be a useful tool to help those interested in the progress of our pregnancy to keep up with what's happening throughout this exciting process, and even after the little ones arrive. We are now in week 23, hopefully around 7 to 10 weeks from the big day. I am hesitant to even begin this blog because I'm afraid it may be too difficult to keep up. We'll see. Bear with me as I set this thing up, this ain't my strong suit. Kickoff: 6 weeks from today in the Georgia Dome. Yeeha and ROLL TIDE!!!
