Born Saturday nite at 8:15pm and 11:15pm. It was everything I wanted and more! I had wanted to make it to 38 weeks, and I did! I wanted a sunny day with neighbors walking by when I was laboring and they did I wanted to have labor start in the morning, so it would be easier on my DD. She got to go to a little amusement park all day with cousins and auntie, and I had peace of mind knowing that she was happy.
We felt really grounded in the homebirth idea that day, and I had no fears. My midwives were amazing and lovingly supported me through the labor and deliveries. It was really perfect, and I feel sooooo blessed.
Just wanted to share the good news!
Now I'm sure "how to do it all" will be my next post
Oh yeah, some details Well, my Baby A is Serena, (named for her serene personality in-utero) and Baby B is Sierra (very fitting, as she was always squirreling around in there). Serena was 5 lbs. 14 oz. and Sierra was 6 lbs. 10 oz. I was expecting bigger, as the u/s had guess-timated close to 7 lbs. each! But they have been great eaters, so I'm hoping that we will not have the challenges of feeding as I had w/my DD #1.
And lengths.... so Serena is 18 1/4 inches and Sierra is 19 1/2. I don't think that they are identical, as their faces look pretty different, but I guess I'll find out eventually. They are just beautiful, and hopefully I'll figure out how to post a picture. I'm suprised I even have a second to type all this, I know there are those brief moments early on, and then they seem to disappear! Well someone is waking up, so better go!
