Emily Grace and Oliver Vincent were May 28 at 38 weeks! Emily was 6 lbs, 9 oz and 18.5 inches long. Oliver was 6 lbs., 4 oz. and 19.5 inches. He was born 2 minutes before Emily! This first week has flown by, and they're doing great.

First let me say a HUGE congrats to you and your family! Emily and Oliver are just 100% precious!!!!!! Thank God for taking such good care of you and your babies during their arrival as it sounds incredibly and unnecessarily traumatic (except the high BP). You are one GREAT baby growing mama as both of your twins born at 36ish weeks were born larger than both of my singletons born at term :) GREAT JOB! I am sorry things w/ bf'ing didn't turn out as planned but hopefully it will allow you to get more rest since others can feed the babies should you choose.

I hope that the older kids are doing well and according to FB it sounds like you have a great family support, which also is fantastic! Vent or chat here whenever you need it.. you know that is what we are all here for :)

HUGE HUGS and lots of rest wishes coming your way!

Jamie - I am so sorry you had such an awful experience. I hope you are able to put it behind you and move forward. I do think that you need to voice your frustrations to your OB. She needs to know how upsetting this was to you, so hopefully she can do things differently with future patients. Please feel free to vent your feelings here, for as long as you need to. We are here for you.

Your babies are absolutely beautiful. I hope you have lots of help during your recovery. I'd love to hear how the older kids are doing with them.

Oh, Jamie, I just feel sad for you and how that birth experience turned out. I hope you can somehow let your OB know your feelings, since this seems like it was so unnecessary. I'm glad you're on the mend now :-)

Those babies are just way too much cuteness all at once. A huge congratulations on adorable and healthy twinsies! How are the big kids doing with the transition?

Thanks, girls! I actually feel a lot better having written it all out like that. I just needed to "talk" about it and organize my thoughts, and I knew you all would understand!


The older three kids think the new babies are awesome... so far, we're not having any jealousy issues, not even from Abbie. It has helped that our families have been taking them to do lots of fun things, so they've had the time of their lives this week. And we've been letting Abbie sleep in Ben and Sammie's room in a toddler bed, which makes her feel like part of their "team". They give the babies kisses and always want to help feed them and hold them. It's very sweet. I hope it lasts! :)
