It has been a long summer and I have tried to work, pray and spend time with Derek as we prepared for our twin sons. I found out last June that I was expecting mono-mono twin boys. Wow what I have learned over the last few months! I am so blessed to report that i made it 33 weeks to the day and delivered my sons via c-section on September 11 at 2:30am. Benjamin weighed in at 3lbs 15 ounces and Samuel at 4lb even. Despite being in the highest risk class of twin pregnancy, everything went well until my water broke late on the 10th. Derek and I are happy to report that both boys are breathing with just some oxygen in their tiny noses. I know I have not been on this site for many weeks, but I needed to focus on prayer and my husband and my babies. Last I checked in I was just showing! I got much, much bigger but I was able to work up until last week!
Derek and I want to thank everyone who gave advice -even those who told me to calm the heck down- prayed for us and advised us wisely to stick with the high risk OB doctor. He turned out to be amazing! He watched over me and my sons -I love saying that! so carefully. All of the staff here at University of Minnesota Medical Center have been amazing. I am a blessed woman!
Samuel has been able to nurse a bit, Benjamin is not quite able to latch. I am pumping and both boys are looking good! I will be going home today, and sadly the boys must stay a bit but we are hopeful that they will come home soon. then i hope you are all prepared to answer lots of new mom questions. thanks again!
