Just popping in to give an update - I had my girls! Skye Emmanuelle and Celeste Linnea were born on 9/12 at 5lbs 10.5 oz and 5lbs 15 oz. I ended up going to 37.4 weeks.
The delivery was actually pretty good. I delivered in the OR, but I had them both vaginally. At first I was worried about having so much medical staff in the room with me. It was something me, my doctor and my husband went around about quite a few times. In the end, there was another set of twins being delivered at the same time as mine by c-section so all the staff I was worried about was in the other OR with the other set of twins. I ended up delivering with just my OB, two nurses and my husband which is what I originally wanted.
The first 6 weeks of having them home was kind of hell on earth, but after 6 weeks we really started finding our rhythm. Breastfeeding started going better, they're started sleeping longer stretches at night. I was really scared because I'm pretty much doing this on my own. My husband is doing his residency and is gone 80 hrs a week and we've just moved 2 hours away from our friends and family. But so far its been manageable. My house looks terrible, but all the people inside of it are doing well.
Now they're just starting to notice each other and watch each other. Skye's favorite activity is watching Celeste in the swing. Celeste just learned to grab for the toys in the play gym by watching Skye do it.
I know I've been MIA, but on top of the girls, I've also been writing my thesis. I've actually lurked a lot, and its been great reading about the new set of twin moms.I was terrified through most of my pregnancy but they really are the best thing ever.
