They are here!

The twins arrived on 06 July.  They are perfect in every way and we are getting into a routine now. They will be three weeks tomorrow and I can’t believe how fast the first weeks have gone!

Their birth was pretty non-eventful, with the exception of them arriving which was monumental!  The anesthesiologist struggled with my spinal and had around four go’s…and I started swearing around number three.  Wasn’t pretty.  But soon all was good in the world when my two babes arrived.

I really was expecting them to go into ICU, but they didn’t!  They were in the room with me the entire time and came home with us…no problems!  So happy.

We are trying hard to keep everyone on a similar schedule and some nights are better than others, but overall it is amazing.  I can’t believe I had twins!  I can’t believe I carried them to just shy of 38 weeks.  I am so proud and so happy they are here…especially happy they are out now so I can have my body back!

So happy! We are a family of five now.  I honestly never thought we would have any babies at all….sweet miracles. What a journey we have had, with three happy endings 🙂

34 weeks…they will be here very soon!

So a lot of time has passed since my last post.  I am now 34 weeks and my last day of work is tomorrow.  It is just getting too difficult to drive, sit, move…breath!  It has really only been since 32 weeks that I have gotten so big and uncomfortable.

I still can’t believe I am about to have twins!  It is all so surreal.  But we are ready, or as ready as we will ever be.  I am more worried about my 2 year old and how he will manage.  His whole world is about to get very crazy…but he is pretty easy going – for a toddler – so hoping that will continue once babies arrive.

We are monitoring babies weekly now.  They are both measuring nicely, around 2.5kgs and growing every week.  Their growth hasn’t really slowed yet.  They were monitoring me for preeclampsia but nothing they are concerned with so far.  I am having a lot of pelvic pain, so just trying to take it slow.

I can’t really complain.  I have had (another) amazing pregnancy even though carrying twins is definitley more challenging than a singleton.  But I haven’t had any complications and babies are doing well.

So I am hoping for a few days of sleep next week before these babies come.  So hoping they stay put for another week.
