Well this has been far different than my other pregancies and child birth... wow all my natural births are a peice of cake compaired to this one.

I had been told I had toxemia so the other day I had a c section... wow did that suck!! 9 tries to get the block in... and what a creepy feeling... to feel everything they are doing but not having it hurt? very odd

Both dads made it in time to see there children come into the world and My dh was right by my head the whole time...

Baby A weighed in at 5pounds 2 oz and Baby B suprised us all weighing 5pounds 12 oz

No NICu time needed they are so cute!!! I would love to tell everyone there names but I have been sworn to secrecy until they are home and have the naming celebration


they are sooo cute and look just like there daddys

I am still in the hospital hopefully I will get to go home tomorrow... the other night I hemoraged pretty badly and almost needed to be transfused bUt I got lucky

13 staples in my belly and they want out and I want home!!!!!


Hope everyone is doing fine.. Your all almost done now!!!!

ohhh, wishing you a speedy and pain-free recovery from the c/s. Take it from one who has been there - even when you start to feel better, DO NOT over do it!! Take it easy, and rest, rest, rest!!!

Can't wait to hear their names, and good job growing those babes so BIG

Ok well daddys had a naming celebration at a temple here today so I can now share the names

Baby A Rinat (pronounced RE KNOT/// kinda like rena with a T at the end

Baby B is Marav (pronounced MOR AVE )

it took me awhile to wrap my head around those names.. but now I am used to it.

they just got discharged from the hospital and I am very surprised that my intended paretns have chosen NOT to vax YAYAYAYAYAY

I am still here and will have my staples taken out tomorrow and hopefully I will be home in time for dinner!! Whoo hoooo party time lol

Congrats on being an Awesome person to carry such healthy babies for someone else!!! I'm curioius though how much contact with the twins do you think you'll have throughout their lives? Do the Dads plan on keeping you included like family or maybe just updates? I would always just be curious how they develop and grow up, but still be ok with them having their own lives with the Dads. (hope I'm saying that right, I'm tired ...) I actually have secretely thought about suggesting doing the same for my OB Dr. I really like her and feel for her not have had her own children yet. not sure of her circumstances (she just did have a recent divorce in past two years after like 14 yrs I think) And I think it would be a great way to "repay" her kwim?

Ok well I'm done rambling and I hope you do get home in time for dinner tomorrow! Has someone prepared your favorite meal for then?? HA!!

You're really a hero! I hope you have a speedy, smooth recovery, and have something planned to treat yourself really well after you recover. What a wonderful, wonderful gift to give.

The babies are now at the hotel with there parents

I am having alot of cramping so I can't sleep. I will be off the computer in a minute though... sitting doesn't really help!

I am comfortable with whatever contact my intended parents want. I didn't get into this agreement with strings attached. I would love picture updates of the babies and my ips are great with that. But I will miss my dads more than the babies. You can tell they are truely the parents. I feel so not attached to the children. But I will miss my IPs
