Hey Ladies--

 

Well, Miles and Emily made it earth side on Sunday Sept 18th at 2:57 am and 3:02 am.

 

Miles weighed 7lb 14 oz and was 20 inches long.

 

Emily weighed 7lb 1 oz and was also 20 inches long.

 

I was induced Saturday afternoon using cytotec to ripen my closed cervix. It took one dose to get me contracting, and the second dose got my cervix to 3cm. They broke Miles' bag of water and placed a scalp monitor on him. My contractions started right up from there.

 

At around 11 pm I decided it was time for an epidural. I was very tired, and knew with baby girl being transverse there could be a risk of needing to do a c-section to get her out, and I wanted to be awake if they had to do it in an emergency. I was at 5cm at this time.

 

3 hours later, I could feel every contraction again, and lots of pressure. The nurse checked me and lo and behold I was complete. So at about 2:30 they wheeled me back to the OR so that I could deliver in there. Once everything was in place the said, "ok, lets start pushing." I pushed for 3 contractions and Miles was born. He had his cord wrapped around his neck once.

 

 They tried via u/s guidance to do an external version on Emily to bring her head down. She didn't want to budge. So, the Dr. decided to try a breech extraction. He broke her bag of water, and went in after her. All he could grab was her butt. So out she came butt first.

 

I had a very minor tear..not even a 1st degree. I am thankful that the Dr. had small hands/arms.

 

They both have a head full of hair. Miles' is white/blond just like Daddy, and Emily is brown, just like mommy.

 

So without further ado here they are....

Congratulations!  What a beautiful birth story too!  (As an inspiring midwife, I'm so happy for you to hear about twins both born vaginally, including breech!).  It sounds like you must have been so proactive and healthy in your pregnancy, and wow, those are good sized babies!!!

 

I hope you are resting, relaxing, getting pampered, and absolutely falling in love with your new babies!  Congratulations!

Wow...awesome job Mama! My twins did the same thing as far as the 2nd baby playing around in utero after the first one birthed. We waited two hours before he finally decided to head out. Mine were both over 7 lbs as well. Twins are amazing! The first 6 months is hard and you just do what you have to do to get through. We had a two and four year old when they were born so it was a little crazy...fun, but crazy! Before you know it, they're in their 20's :0(
