It has been such a long time since I posted but things have been very hectic. I was put on 10 week bedrest due to preterm labor. Made it to 34w6d!!

Here is our birth story:
I started light bleeding and contractions on 12-24 early morning. I checked in L&D but the xtractions subsided so I was sent home.
On X mas 12-25 my water broke and thecontractions started building very fast. We went ASAP to L&D, the xctions were 1-2 min apart and very strong. I was going to be c/s but had to wait for blood work before getting the epidural in the spine. Very painful 1h. Then the anesthesiologist started with the epidural. After 15-20 shots in the spine he gave up and decided to go with general anesthesia. That was a major surgery and i coould not see the babies when they were born. Waking up was also a very painful experience.
However it was all worth it!
My babies are so precious and cute and adorable!
The boy was a trooper from the begging and did not need nay NICU time. He is just eating and sleeping all day long.
The girl had some trouble breeding in the first hours. X ray showed some fluid in her lungs. She was put on 30% increased oxygen for a day. The 2nd day she was breathing on her own. She was taking IV fluids. Day 3 we started giving her milk+formula and she is eating well. We bumped the food a little and she seemed to eat very well. Day 4 she went off the IV!!!
We got them both home on 12-31-06, just for New year:)
I am overwhelmed ans so happy!
I am so thrilled so many of you are preggers!!!!
