My Surro Twins Arrived

Well this is for sure not how I planned on ending my pregnancy, but I guess they thought different. I went impatient on June 1st, due to weight of baby A as well as Blood Flow Retraction. I made it till June 8th then my blood pressure decided enough was enough, it reached 186/112 and my dr. said that was it. I was taken back at 930 June 8th for the delivery of my surro twins. Baby Boy A-Davis was born at 1010 weighing in at 2lb3oz, 14.5in long and Baby Girl B-Devan was born at 1011 weighing in at 3lb11oz, 16.5in long. they both cried wonderful loud cries. They were taken to NICU and I went to recovery. I finally was able to be wheeled through the NICU to see them. WOW they are tiny. But doing wonderful. Davis was breathing on his own and Devan had to have a little O2. They are currently up to Davis-2lb6oz, and Devan 3lb15oz. they are off all O2, as well as IV's. they just need time to grow now.
I am recovering from my c-section, Due to me being on bedrest I was put on Heprin, well it formed a hematoma behind my incision, so i now have an open c-section wound of 4in. I pray it heals nicely. The one good thing about this delivery, I believe I gained right around 25lb, before I left the hospital 4 days after, I had lost 33lbs, I came home and tried on my pre-pregnant jeans and they fit!!! I am currently down 36lbs as of Tuesday. I am getting ready to move to S. Carolina where my hubby has been for the last 6 months working as a police officer on the Marine Base.
I pray you all have a wonderful rest of your pregnancy. Best of luck to you- enjoy it!! I feel very cheated that I am no longer pregnant, and didn't get to birth these babies naturally.

I'm sorry the birth didn't go as you were hoping, but you there are two healthy LO's because of you. I say you are more than allowed to go through the grieving process for the loss of your expectation/hope. Hang in there. I'm glad you'll get to be with DH again.

You did awesome! I'm so glad the babies are both breathing on their own and are growing. Try not to be too hard on yourself, but I totally understand the grief of not having the labor your wanted. Take time to work through it, you need it. Enjoy some much needed time with your hubby! I hope the incision heals quickly from here.

Wow - I have been wondering about you. I am glad they are both doing well. How many weeks were you when they were delivered?

I hope you recover quickly and enjoy your time with your DH.

I am very envious of your weight gain and loss after pregnancy.
