Audrey Elaine and Maxwell Zachary were born 11/9/11

 

Pictures:

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.

They are absolutely precious and you look beautiful!

I'm so glad they were nice and big and are doing well.

No regrets, mama, they are out, healthy, and you will be on the road to recovery soon!

 

Thanks for the photos. Makes me more excited to meet out new bundle. ;)
