Briana and Carolina are Here!!!

My girls were born on April 24, 2007. I was scheduled for induction that Tuesday but Brianas' heartbeats dropped and an memergency C-Section was required. An emergency C- Section like in the ER and Grays Anatomys shows. My doctor was the sweetest person. Briana was born at 9:23AM with Apgars 8-9 and a good cry like I really wanted. Then Briana, that was vertex all the time, moved and ended up breech. She was born at 9:26AM, also with a good cry and apgars of 8-9.
The babies did not need nicu or anything.
I made it to 37 weeks and 1 day. Briana Amelie was 6 pounds and 18 inches. Carolina Mia was 5 pounds and 12 ounces and 19 inches.

I am very thankful for a wonderful pregnancy and for being blessed with two girls at once. I am not going to lie that there are endless nights and sleep deprivation happens, but I am still thankful for everything.

I wish you the best and pls enjoy every minute of your multiple pregnancy. For most of all, it only happens once and what seems like an eternity now will soon be memories of your pregnancy. Enjoy your pregnancies, bedrests, trips to the bathroom, MS and everything else.

Grisel -

Congratulations on the birth of your baby girls! You did a great job of carrying them to term:) The first couple of months are exhausting - accept any help you can get and try to take care of yourself too. Hope to see you on the Raising Multiples board!
