Audrey Elaine and Maxwell Zachary were born 11/9/11
I am home and doing well though exhausted, both babies are still in the NICU - having trouble with temperature control and being lazy nursers but both are improving and otherwise look great. I'm hoping they will be home by the end of the week.
I had a c-section when it became clear with multiple ultrasounds that while Audrey (baby A) was heads down there was a pocket of fluid between her head and my cervix containing cord. So no induction. Part of me wishes I had insisted on waiting until 37 weeks or gotten a second opinion on the optimal time for delivery - but I don't know if I could have forgiven myself if I had lost one of these guys due to cholestasis.
Regardless - we are all doing well. I feel like there are so many things I should be doing right now but it would probably be best for me to go to bed so I can get up in 3 hours to pump.
