Just had to share...

My twin boys we born this week at 37 weeks & 4 days! Baby boy A was born at home in the water after just 45 minutes of labor! He weighed 6 lbs 14 oz and was 20 inches long. Baby boy B was born in our bed after about 2 1/2 more hours of labor. He weighed 7 lbs 13 oz and was 21 inches long! So far nursing is going well. I've been able to nurse them together without too much trouble but coordinating the timing is still a bit trickier. The smaller baby is sleepy so I'm really trying hard to get him to stay nursing and not just suckle all the time. I've posted a few pics here.

Mama to four remarkable kiddos, all born at home.

Wow, that's about the same size my twins were except one was only 6.5 (the other was 7.13). Did you get huge too? I wish I'd had mine at home--maybe then I wouldn't have ended up with a c-section. That must've been hard trying to get the second one out while taking care of the first.

They look good! What are their names?

Congrats!! I'm glad you were able to have a home birth after all, I remember reading in the April DDC that you weren't sure you'd be able to, and really wanted it. Great! They are beautiful!!
