They're Here!

The girls arrived at 37w3d via c-section on June 19th. I never went into labor, but my BP was rising and my kidneys failing so my OB decided not to wait until the 23rd. The experience of childbirth was odd since it was not the way I always imagined it and now I am recovering from a cesarean, however it was nice not to have to labor for hours.

In any case the girls are great, Baby A at 6lbs2oz and 19 inches and Baby B at 5lbs4oz and 18.5 inches. They've lost some of their initial weight but have already started gaining it back. We're home now after 4 days in the hospital, and it is an AMAZING experience, although a very tiring one and a bit nerve wracking, mostly because I worry about them. However, they have been doing great and didn't need any NICU time which is a huge relief. I love them more than anything!
