I had my twins last Thurs (5/10). We had a home waterbirth and it all went great! Christopher was 8 lb 8 oz, and Riley was 8 lb 12 oz. They were born at 39 wks 4 days. The birth was very fast - about 4 hours from 1st contrax to the end. They were much bigger babies than I was expecting!

They're so beautiful! I can't believe how chunky they are! I'm very jealous! My goal was to have at least 8 lbers but they were born 37w4d and were just shy of 7 & 8 each. If I had gone as long as you, mine could have looked like that! Congrats again, mama! You did a WONDERFUL job in every way!

Your babies are so beautiful and so big. That is so awesome you got your home waterbirth. I love being able to tell people that there are twin mommas having homebirths with big babies. I so wish I could have had a homebirth with my twins but my state wouldnt allow it. I was in another state when I had my second son at home and I wish I had stayed there just long enough to have my twins. Anyways, Congrats! Take care and Be Blessed.
