Journal entry by Laura Smith

Hey family and friends- a lot of you have reached out asking how you can help our family while we gather strength and positivity to get us through these last stressful weeks of our high risk twin pregnancy. Today, at 29 w 1 day we were told I am now on absolute bed rest- can only leave bed for bathroom, water and food and then immediately back to bed. The number one thing we can benefit from is volunteering time to come over and play with our girl. She is the joy in our worlds and we want her to feel special while Mommy is confined to the bed and daddy works tirelessly to secure days for when the twins do arrive as our lives will be shaken up especially if they come early which is a high possibility at this point. We are extremely lucky to have Grandmas helping but they need a break too.  

Thanks for reading and we appreciate texts/FaceTimes/Netflix/Amazon/Hulu recs and prayers or positive vibes whatever is your thing. Hard to write this, but I need to do something to help my girl and family even if I’m confined now to my bed. 

With love, 

- Smith family
