And I'm exhausted, LOL! Welcome to all the new babies and congrats to all the new babies in our DDC. You all have been busy while I was away.
I had the babies last Tuesday (11/23) night at 8:00 PM and 8:19 PM. Matthew was first and weighed 6 pounds 7 ounces and Molly was second and was 7 pounds 9 ounces. They were born vaginally and were just perfect, no rips, tears, or cuts on me! Unfortunately, after that things went really badly. I underwent congestive heart failure while pushing the babies out and also underwent a postpartum hemmorhage that resulted in me losing 3600 ccs of blood. I ended up being put on a vent while I was stabilized. The official diagnosis was peripartum cardiomyopthy, which you can read about here if you want:
I will eventually post my birth story. I have it all written out, I'm just not sure if I'm ready to share yet. The babies are just perfect. The hardest part now is how tired I am and the fact that I am not allowed to nurse the twins until next Friday, December 10. I'm pumping and drinking Mother's Milk Tea and praying they take to the breast.
I will try to come back tonight and post pictures of the babies. I am uploading them now. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers!
