I went into labor around 8pm Sunday night. Our doula came and we tried and tried to get A to turn, with no luck. Finally we went into the hopsital a bit agfter 3am, had the ob check posticion with u/s and yep still transverse. I was 5cm dialeted so we had the c-section

Dominic Edward was born at 4:44am 4lbs 7oz 16"
Aaron William was born at 4:47 5lbs 6oz 18"

I was 34wks 6days. Dominic is doing well, he's under the billi lights and in the warmer but he's nursing like a champ and having forumla too. He's breathing on his own, no iv anymore and they say he's doing better at controlling his temp.
Aaron, is still all over with his breathing and heartrate. I've only been able to hold him a few times Hopefully this afternoon we'll be albe to start mouth feeds with him. He;s also on O2, under the billi lights and in the warmers

c-section recovery is very hard and quite painful. I'll be realsed tomorrow but no word yet on the boys

mum to Christopher (6/98) Elizabeth (2/05) twins Aaron and Dominic (7/10/06) and new baby Eden (4-18-09)

Congratulations Mama! I was a twin born at 30w and my hospital stay was until my sister and I were 4lb (exactly) and they sent us home... it sounds like your boys are doing well even though with a bit of assistance. Glad to hear they are safe, healthy and you get to see them, be with them.

I'm sorry recovery is tough, I can imagine you were dissapointed with a cesarean - but those transverse babies don't come out very well without turning. Many hugs and love for you - prayers for support too. Take care!!

COngrats on the birth of your sons! Wishing you a speedy recovery physically & emotionally from a different birth than you would have liked. So glad to hear Dominic is doing so well & I hope Aaron's breathing & heartrate stabilize soon- it must be very difficult not to be able to spend more time w/ him

Yipeee!!!! Your're are first!! Congrats... don't worry, the c-sec recovery will be much better in a couple of weeks. My advice to help nursing/caring for the babies: take the pain meds!

Kids. I got two of 'em.

Welcome to the world, Dominic and Aaron!!

So sorry you had to go through a c-section, but it sounds as if the boys are doing well. I hope your recovery is quick and that both boys are home with you soon.

Congrats!
