Jody asked me to post and let everyone know that Kieren and Owen arrived earthside Friday afternoon via C-section, weighing 6 lbs. 10 oz. and 6 lbs. 3 oz. respectively. (Wow!) Kieren came out bottom first, waving his toes in the air, from a wedged position up under her ribs. As soon as he was out, Owen flipped head first and headed for the instinctual exit.

Both have lost a little birthweight since then but are still in the high 5 lb. range, and both are doing wonderfully. They did each have a little sugar crash after birth but bounced back quickly. They're breastfeeding champs and happy little cosleepers. Her dh has been taking turns with them through the night, slinging one and carrying the other, so Jody can get a little sleep. It sounds like they're syncing up well, even giving Jody and her dh a solid four hours last night.

Jody found the whole surgery process fascinating and tells me at least they give out stronger drugs for the aftermath.

She should be discharged tomorrow. Congratulations, Jody!!!

How nice to hear that they are all doing well. I'm glad this worked out for her - as a transverse baby is not so good in vaginal deliveries. Congratulations, Jody!

Hey, always have to look on the birght side! I was told I had several narcotic choices post-cesarean. I didn't need much, but it was nice to know it was there!

Congratulations Jody, and welcome to the world, little boys!
