...team pink and blue. I haven't had a chance to post before now but the babies were born on april 22. I was able to carry them to 40 weeks and Aurora weighed in at 6lb7oz and Harrison was 6lb even.

I never went into labor and I don't know how long they would have hung out in here if it was left up to them, but my OB was not keen on "letting" me cook them past 40 weeks. They were born via c-section bc Aurora, baby A, was ass first and not about to turn it around. Their apgars were great and we all came home together.

They are good nursers. The sleep isn't great but nobody said life with twins would be easy. Thankfully they both haven't melted down at the same time, yet, they seem to be taking turns. Just when we think we've know who's the relaxed kid and who's high maintenance, they switch it up on us.

We are so blessed and I wanted to share our news with you guys.

welcomed my boy/girl twins on 04/22/10 after cooking them for 40 weeks

Congratulations on your new son and daughter! Yay!

The fact that they haven't melted down at the same time (and it's been > month since birth) is amazing. Let's hope it continues!

Enjoy your little ones.
