At 1:00am this morning (10/22), Andrew Michael made his way into the world at 6 lb 11 oz. His brother William Donald followed at 1:28 am, weighing in at 6 lb 6 oz.

We made it to 37 weeks 4 days. Nothing went as planned, although we managed a epi-free, vaginal delivery (no tearing) of both babies. Labor was just under 10 hours and very odd. I am exausted, so I will have to post the story later - just thought I would let everybody know. Thanks for all the well wishes!

Oh Mama Chicken, look at you!!! Sounds like you went for a wild ride with the end of pregnancy and birth. (good preparation for mothering twins )
I'm delighted for you to have made it so far, and to manage a vaginal, epi-free birth. That is huge!!!!:
