Esmé and Tessa have arrived!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
The girls were born via c-section on Thursday August 16th at 11:29 and 11:32 am, weighing in at 5 lb 4 oz and 5 lb 6 oz. They are perfectly healthy and amazing. The surgery and recovery have been a little difficult for me. I had a uterine hemorrhage and ended up having a transfusion, then my blood pressure went up suddenly and there have been various small things like a malfunctioning catheter and some inexplicable nerve pain, and blood that later had trouble clotting properly- but I think we may be able to go home tonight! Breastfeeding is going ok- milk came in last night so I have been pumping and nursing. We need to work on some latching issues so I have a lactation consultant coming to our home tomorrow. Despite the issues we've had throughout this pregnancy, my significant other has proven to be a completely devoted, sweet, proactive and competent father. It's clear that he adores his baby girls, which is very touching for me to see after the stressful last few months. Photos to come soon!

I was just updating the roster- she was due 9/7, so if the girls were born 8/16 i think that would be 36+6
