The girls have arrived!!

They are here!!  Its been a crazy busy day but we are now a family of 5!  I woke up at 5am this morning with contractions that seemed to be close together.  I tried sleeping through it and got up around 7 to take a bath and timed them at around 2-3 mins apart.  They didn’t slow down with a bath and seemed to be getting more intense so we headed to the hospital around 9.  My dr came in at 11 and they were still both very breech so I delivered them at 11:54 and 11:55 by c/s.   The c/s itself went quite well…the hardest part was not being able to keep them right on my chest with me the whole time.  But thankfully it was quick and they had us in our room by not much after noon.

Alanna Grace was 5 lbs 5 oz and Avigail Rose was 4lbs 9 oz.  Avigail was much smaller than expected and was just barely over the limit of what they will let you take to your room.   phew! But there are absolutely zero health issues and both are doing wonderful!  They are nursing like little champs which I’m so amazed by!!  And I have a ton of colostrum!    Momma and Daddy are both exhausted by over the moon ecstatic that they are here and most importantly healthy!!!  Praise the Lord!  Here’s a few pics of me and the girls.  I’ll get more soon.  😀

    Congratulations! They are beautiful Nici and you look fantastic yourself. We are all very excited for you. Praise God they are so healthy and you are doing good!

  4. Nici! You did GREAT! I am so proud of you for delivering thosehealthy girls! They are simply exquisite. Can’t wait to see more pictures. Oh, my feet were just like that for about 2 more weeks after birth, then about the 15th or 16th day, I looked down, and they were normal. I remember pee-ing and pee-ing and pee-ing that day, though… 🙂 I called them my Fred Flinstone feet.
