The twins have arrived!!
Fri, 11-10-2006 - 4:38pm

Hello everybody, just wanted to hop on here quickly and tell you about the twins. I was due on November 29 but the little devils could not wait. After going into pre-term labor twice and being on mag and terb the doctor finally let me stop the medicine on October 25 at 8:00 pm. I started having contractions by 7 the next morning. I called the doctor at 10 and he said go in to labor and delivery. After sending my son to his grandparents house we headed to the hospital. We arrived at the hospital at about 11 and they checked and I was dilated 3 cm and 90%. The doctor scanned for position and sure enough both were breech so on to the or for a c section. So Duane Jr. was born at 12:23 pm weighing 4lbs 4oz and 16 in long. Next came Caitlyn at 12:24 at 4lbs 12 oz and 17 in long. All are doing well except neither can latch on so I am stuck pumping and hoping they pick up on it soon. We are having some weight gain issues with Caitlyn so lets hope she wakes up and eats more. Good luck to all who are still expecting and congradulations to those who also have had their babies.

Shari -

Congratulations on the arrival of your twins! My babies had issues with latching on in the beginning two - partially due to prematurity (33w6d). It took some work, but I was able to transition them to the breast with the help of a lactation consultant. So make sure to get help, ask lots of questions and remember it does get easier. The first month I wanted to quit so many times and I made well past a year.
