My girls are here!!!!

Born Saturday nite at 8:15pm and 11:15pm. It was everything I wanted and more! I had wanted to make it to 38 weeks, and I did! I wanted a sunny day with neighbors walking by when I was laboring and they did I wanted to have labor start in the morning, so it would be easier on my DD. She got to go to a little amusement park all day with cousins and auntie, and I had peace of mind knowing that she was happy.
We felt really grounded in the homebirth idea that day, and I had no fears. My midwives were amazing and lovingly supported me through the labor and deliveries. It was really perfect, and I feel sooooo blessed.
Just wanted to share the good news!
Now I'm sure "how to do it all" will be my next post

I look forward to your "how to do it all" questions ...so I can learn from the answers, too! (Sometimes I feel like such a novice)

So glad you made it to 38w. That is so wonderful for you and the babes.
Hopefully you won't be having the weight gain worries/obsessions that I have...

Oh yeah, some details Well, my Baby A is Serena, (named for her serene personality in-utero) and Baby B is Sierra (very fitting, as she was always squirreling around in there). Serena was 5 lbs. 14 oz. and Sierra was 6 lbs. 10 oz. I was expecting bigger, as the u/s had guess-timated close to 7 lbs. each! But they have been great eaters, so I'm hoping that we will not have the challenges of feeding as I had w/my DD #1.
And lengths.... so Serena is 18 1/4 inches and Sierra is 19 1/2. I don't think that they are identical, as their faces look pretty different, but I guess I'll find out eventually. They are just beautiful, and hopefully I'll figure out how to post a picture. I'm suprised I even have a second to type all this, I know there are those brief moments early on, and then they seem to disappear! Well someone is waking up, so better go!

Congratulations, mamaliz!!

Loved seeing your 12 a.m. update post above. It is a crazy wonderful time and it's obvious you are enjoying it!!

Do you have help? I mean in addition to your husband. Family, friends, a babysitter? Accept any/all help that is offered -- and sleep as much as possible.

Keep us posted, when you can!
