congratulations! They are beautiful...and sound like they are doing great for 33 weekers! So sorry to hear about the problems during delivery. Sounds like you are very lucky considering your uterus. I am so happy for you to have your complete family now :)

What a blessing. Welcome Share and Alexander. Wow, someone was definitely watching over you and your boys, seems like a lot more could have gone worse from what the Dr. was saying. They are so precious and looks like they are doing great for being delivered at 33 weeks. I'm sorry to hear about the hardships this c-section became. I wish you a speedy recovery and that you and your two little guys will be home soon with the rest of the family. Needless to say I'm so excited we have twins on our board ;-)

Congrats and welcome Shane and Alex. Thank God all is well with you. That is pretty scary to go through. Are they planning on doing anything with your uterus being that it is paper thin? I'm so afraid of having a c-section.

I think once my uterus had shrunk down, everything was fine. it's just the shape of my uterus, two previous c/s, and the fact that there were twins that caused such extreme stretching. But I was told no more kids...which is fine by me! I really didn't want a c/s either, but it's not so bad in the 'medical' sense of it (pain), but it is difficult to be separated from your babies like that.

Congrats on your two beautiful boys! I'm so glad things are ok considering the problems during the surgery and your uterus. I hope you have a speedy recovery and your boys get to come home soon!
