The twins are here! (Birth story)
Mon, 02-11-2013 - 8:51am

The twins are here and we are so in love! We were scheduled to have a c section on 2/14, but last Sunday I started swelling. I called the OB on Wednesday bc my blood pressure was getting high. She said to come on in just to check protein in urine. I went in with my MIL and they shower 2+ protein. My OB said either we go in and take them that night or I would have to be admitted and watched. We opted to take them as I was one day shy of 36 weeks! i was terrified! The c section went fine but was pretty scary for me! Reegan was born first at 5lbs and Henry second at 5lbs, 3 oz! They got to stay with us a few hours then off to special care bc their temps were a little low. My BP went crazy and I ended up on Magnesium for a day and couldn't visit them that full day! Its now Monday and we should be going home today!

Aww, Jamie, they are just adorable!  I'm so glad that you called your OB, and hope you are feeling all better now (well, besides recovering from the c-section).  Enjoy those cute little bundles, congratulations!!!
