Hi everyone, I am home. Sophia and Katherine arrived last Friday, the 23rd. They were born at 34 weeks, 6 days. And Friday was my DH's b-day! So now we have 3 birthdays on one day. That will be fun.

I went into labor on my own, the contrax got worse and worse throughout the day. I finally called my Dr and they told me to go in to L&D. I called DH and laughingly asked him if he wanted the girls to be born on his b-day. He said he really didn't want that, but too bad! I told him to come get me, we were going to the hospital.

When I got there I expected them to tell me these were false labor contrax, but they said they were regular, every 2 minutes, but I hadn't had any changes of the cervix. They gave me terbutaline to stop them, and those girls were determined, they stopped for all of 15 minutes! So they got me in the OR and gave me the epi/spinal (yes, both at the same time, I asked) and it really isn't as fun as people make it out to be. OUCH! But soon it was time and our 2 beautiful girls were here! Kate came first, 3lbs15 oz and then Sophie, 4lbs6oz.

They were in the NICU for a day but are doing so well. I can't wait until they can come home, maybe in a week. They are so incredibly tiny.

I am doing OK except I have some fluid in my right lung, and am on drugs to get rid of it, but today it is worse. I am scared I might have to have it drained like the last time, that hurt so bad.

Katherine and Sophia born at 34 weeks on March 23
