Hey ladies- I had my babies early Friday morning. After a four hour labor, Calliope Jane ane Eleanor Wendy were both born vaginally. Wendy had a pretty rough time breathing and has been transferred to the bigger hospital, about thirty minutes away from me and Callie. But, she's doing well, and I'm going up to try and latch her today.

They were born at 35 weeks, 1 day.
Callie was 4 lbs 6 oz and 16.5 inches long.
Wendy was 4 lbs 9 oz and 16.5 inches long.

Callie was born in the shower and caught by my doula who is also a midwife and Wendy was born about 17 minutes later after an internal version and delivered pretty immediately afterwards. Their placentas were fused, and it was huge.

More updates with pics later.

Congratulations congratulations!  You don't hear about shower births too often :).  Were they going to make you deliver in the OR?  I'm trying to figure out my way around that (if baby B stays breech).


Praying that Wendy can go home soon and you all can get some good bonding time in!
