Babies born on July 22 at 5:15 and 5:16 am Via C-section (due to pre-eclampsia). Fiona was born first at 6lbs 7 oz and 20 inches long. Willow was 6lbs 10oz and 20 inches long. I'm feeling great and am recovering quickly. Both girls came out screaming their little heads off and have had alot to say since. Girls are nursing well and although they have lost alot of weight, one is starting to gain again. I expect that they'll both start gaining soon.
I'm happy about the c-section. They completely put the ball in my court and no one tried to strong arm or anything. We decided that since the pre-e was getting worse, labor had started and stopped twice and Fiona was still not decending that this was the least risky. I have two incredibly healthy babies and I feel both empowered and happy with my decision.Here they are
Congratulations! Now the adventure begins
Enjoy your precious babies.
Congratulations!!!!! So happy to hear that all of you are doing well. I can't wait to see pictures!

My DH has a July 22 birthday -- nice, mellow, kind Cancers are great!
What beautiful names and (I am sure) beautiful girls. Congratulations to all of you!!
Congrats! I've been thinking about you & wondering how you're doing. Your situation was a lot like mine -- worsening pre-e and a breech presenting twin. And what big babies you grew! Good job mama!
I'm glad you're all doing well.
Yay! Congratulations! I can't wait to see their pics!
Pics from the hospital in OP. Thanks for all the positive thoughts
. I have ankles again, but seem to have misplaced sleep LOL
Oh my goodness what precious baby girls you have!! They are just beautiful, not that you don't already know that.
The baby girl in yellow on the right must have been rooting for some of mama's milk in a couple of those pics and finding only her sister to nibble on. Too cute!

Congratulations! They are gorgeous little girls, and so snuggly looking! So glad it went well!
AWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! How adorable. I got teary-eyed looking at those baby girls! My fave poses are #'s 2 and 4!! Fiona has such gorgeous eyes, and one of my favorite memories of my girls is when they would root against each other and suck on each others hands (or noses, lol!!) Precious! Heal quickly and enjoy those snuggly little girls!!!!!!!!
Congratulations on your beautiful, healthy girls.
So, so, glad you feel good about the birth too.
Enjoy your little treasures
They are so precious. They remind me of how little my girls were (6 lbs. 10 oz. 21", 6 lbs. 12 oz. 20.5"). Yours are a week shy of my girls birthday. Even with all the craziness of twins, I can hardly believe my girls are already almost 1! The year went so fast. Cuddle them lots!
I'm glad everything worked out well! Your girls are beautiful & I love their names. Now for the fun part....!
Congratulations and good luck. Your girls are beautiful!
