Antici…pation

As of about 12:30 PM today we officially have our children. We roomed in last night and came to moms this afternoon. We will be leaving for B’ville Saturday morning. Per instructions given to us at the hospital we will be limiting the kids outings and visitors, until instructed otherwise by our physician. I’m not complaining about his, because I have to feed every 3 hours by their orders as well (this takes one hour if Jonathan and I are tag team breast feeding and bottle feeding, it’s 2 hours if it’s just me). With the monitors for their “brady’s” we also are packed like we are going for a long trip, just to the next room. I’m on my own this next week and then my mom is coming to visit the week after.

Thank you all for your thoughts, kind words and prayers. I can’t wait to get home and post pictures. This adventure is a strain, but it’s pretty fun ( and tiny) too.

I'm excited for you, that you'll have your babies at home!

I remember the awful feeling of not being able to see your own children...bleh.

When my kids came home, it was a miracle we ever left the house because with 2 babies, 2 oxygen tanks, and 2 monitors...*sigh*
But totally worth it. :)

Holler at me if you need anything, or just want to chat!

I wish you all the best. I was a lucky mother of multiples in that our babies were both huge (by twin standards) and we all left the hospital together. As much as I tried to mentally prepare for NICU and any assorted other problems that twins usually end up with, I was thankfully spared all that. Mine are now almost 16 months old, so terribly different that it's amazing they are twins, and healthy.
