after a 27 hour labor my twin girls are here.....

Amelia Anne
5 lbs. 9 oz

Annalise Grace
6 lbs. 10 oz.

Although they were born at 35.6 weeks they are nursing like champs and got discharged after 36 hours. Both are doing great, but man am I tired.
I was able to have a natural, drug free birth after a long long labor and 20 minutes of pushing. The girls were born 7 minutes apart.
Off to (hopefully) get an hour of sleep.

Mom to 4 beautiful girls, expecting a blessing in November. Come check out my etsy shop www.bowsweetbow.etsy.com

not a problem just sorry it took so long the box I had them in got put away..
and with everyone's babies being so sticky around this board it really put it out of mind for a while! You should get some use out of the firefly sleeptight small soon enough I don't think I ever used it...my boys are big boys!

8 might be enough
