Keegan Sol Fitlow and Marlee Terra Fitlow were born on November 22, 2005, at 11:09 and 11:12 a.m. after a short 1.5 hour labor. Marlee was born first, after about 5 pushes. Keegan was second, double footling breech extraction. Apgars were 9,9 for Marlee and 8,9 for Keegan. Neither girl needed any extra help and we went home two days later on Thanksgiving. They are nursing well, have regained birthweight (at about 10 days) and, although Marlee spent a few days on the bili blanket, both are now jaundice free.

Marlee was 5lbs 5oz.
Keegan was 4lbs 12oz.
They were born at 36w1d.

Life with twins and a 19-month toddler is definitely an adventure, but we're managing with lots and lots of help. Thankfully, it looks like we've got good help lined up through January at least, so I think we may live through this.

I developed a nasty case of anxiety attacks at about day 3 from all the hormones, but my doctors have been great and we got those under control and *knock on wood* they're gone now.

Congrats! That is exactly how I'm thinking my birth will go... first baby head down second breech.

What beautiful names you picked!
