Hey...this board has some serious turnover since I got pregnant with the twins, but I wanted to announce their birth for the few oldbies that remain. Some of you may remember my dad was killed shortly before I got pregnant with the twins. Well, one of them reminds me SO MUCH of my dad. It's really sweet.
I am cutting and pasting this from the pg forum because I am lazy:
"Ok, I am ashamed it has taken me this long to post this, but my boys Hayden James and Jackson Lane (aka Jack) were born 2/15/7. I called the on-call doc about really bad gas pains and he told me to rush to L&D (I was 37 weeks pregnant). I show up insisting I just have some gas pain, but then after getting on the monitors I see I am contracting every 3-5 minutes. Whoa. I had a pitocin induced labor the first time and was always told that was harder than labor that started naturally. WRONG. That pain was coming out of my earholes. I had sweaty palms and could barely talk for lip quivering and shaking. Anyway, they ask if I want to deliver and I tell them no, so they gave me fluid and sedation in order to try to stop the labor if it was false. Instead it organized my contractions so was hurried back for the c-section. Hayden came out first at 6lbs, Jack was next at 6 lbs 2 oz. I am giving them breast milk, but after a scare with a low number of poopy/wet dipes for Jack I started pumping...a lot. I am going to try to transition back to the breast at 3 mos. It's too hard to try to nurse twins and be a mom to a 3 year old boy and nursing babies this young kind of annoys me anyway...too floppy, too slow. If it were one I could handle, but two..NO WAY. We still practice nursing though to make sure they will still be able to when I try the transition. Downside: I gained 69 lbs and still have 35 lbs to go to lose to my pre-pregancy size. The doctor says I cannot try any sort of diet since I am nursing twins. Ugh. I notice I stress eat a lot when they cry (which is pretty much a lot of the time). Oh well! I guess I will be back over at the lawl board in a year."
