Hi all,

It's the best Christmas gift ever!! My boys have arrived!! Here's my story!

I had terrible pelvic pain the last two months of pregnancy and on Sunday December 10, it got so bad I couldn't walk. I had my c-section scheduled for Monday morning the 11th but we were worried about getting to the hospital. We called the doctor and she said to come in Sunday night and just spend the night. I hated the thought but the pain was so bad, when it did let up, I went down the stairs on my butt and we left around 10:30 pm for the hospital. We didn't sleep much that night, too many people in labor and delivery.

Monday morning December 11th, I was nervous, very nervous. We were in and out of surgery pretty quickly. Ethan Louis ( on the right) was born at 9:02 am, weighing 6 lbs 10 oz, 19.5 inches long. Aidan Michael (on the left) was born at 9:03 am, weighing 7 lbs 1 oz, 20 inches long. Ethan was in the NICU the first day. He was having trouble getting the fluid out of his lungs. Since I was recovering from the surgery that first day I only got to see him for a second after he was born. My partner and family would take pictures of him and bring them to me so I could get a look at him. Luckily he was in our room by the next day.

I'm recovering pretty well. I still have the pelvic pain but nothing like during pregnancy. I actually saw an osteopath and 4 of his students right after the c-section. They came into recovery to do some treatments, it was amazing! I've lost 33 lbs so far. 18 left to get to pre-pregnacy weight. Having my boys around has helped my recovery so much. I love them, love looking at them and want to snuggle with them 24/7!

I was 38 weeks when I deivered. I don't know I could go another second. My pelvic bones really hurt at this point and I couldn't walk the night before. Now though I really do miss them being inside me. I miss the kicking etc. They're growing everyday, too fast. Well time to sign off, they're ready for another feed.
