My twin girls arrived on April 1st! - fixed photos

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
The girls were born April 1st by C-Section:

Juliette "Etta" Dawn was born @ 4:40 and she has an incredibly full head of thick, thick hair. Very dark with a few "blondish" highlights. And, much to our surprise - she was the BIGGER twin! She weighed 6.11 and was 18.25". Oh, and she has MY DIMPLE!

Grace (no middle name yet) was born @ 4:42 and kicked the OB the entire time she was trying to deliver her. Grace looks so much like her big sister Lucy. Minimal - but just right amount of hair and Lucy's nose and cheeks. She weighed 5.15 and was 17.5".

The girls are very fraternal and easy to tell apart even when they are not next to each other. They are incredibly healthy and doing very well. I had excessive bleeding and did have two transfusions... but I feel a million times better with this delivery than I did with Lucy's. And, my care has been wonderful - great nursing staff and attentiveness this time! Now, I'm just working on getting my milk in... I hope for sucess very soon.

Aw, they are so beautiful!! Were you able to do a vaginal delivery or was their birth a section? Either way, congrats for a successful delivery and hope you heal quickly!!

What a lovely little pair of girls! They sure ARE different looking! I hope their sister is in love! It sounds like this delivery was smooth like "butta" other than your blood loss. I'm so glad to hear it-though I imagine you are feeling pretty peaked! Are you home or still in the the hospital? Rest well mama-you've "dun good!"
