Sorry- I didn't see this post before or the one from hotmamacita! Thank you for your offers of care packages. That is so sweet. I'll pm you both! I was really worn out the end of the pregnancy but that's over now and.....
My girls were born Good Friday, April 9 at 39 weeks. Amelie Grace was born at 11:28am and weighed 6 pounds 8 ounces. Isabella Margaret was born at 6:09pm and weighed 7 pounds 10 ounces. Yes they were over 6 1/2 hours apart and born at home!!! It was not an easy labor or birth like I hoped it would be, being at 9 cm and all. My uterus was measuring 49 cm Thursday night when I started laboring. It was very over-extended and we had to do a lot to keep it working, but gratefully I had patient midwives who were willing to wait as long as it took to get the babies out.
Pictures are up-please enjoy:Amelie and Isabella
So far they seem to be fraternal. My milk coming in was quite a shock. I felt very ill for a couple of days and very engorged, but it's much better now. They had already gained an ounce on day 4 and the midwife is coming by tonight so we'll see if they gained anymore. Night time is hard, but mostly because we didn't have dd (almost 3) on a good sleep schedule, but that's changed now. She co-sleeps with us, but we had to set a bedtime for sanity. I'm completely in love and just so happy to have my babies here. Thanks for all of the support!!!
