New Arrivals - twin boys 7/14/2011
« on: July 16, 2011 at 09:20 AM »
Just wanted to provide a quick update  - Our boys arrived around 9:30 on Thursday morning at 33+6, after my water broke unexpectedly.  Kellan James and William Archer arrived via c-section (little Will was transverse), weighing in at 4lbs5oz and 3lbs9oz respectively.  They both recieved 9 out of 9 Apgars, and were screamers at birth.  I was able to hold them briefly before they were wisked off to the NICU.  Kellan required a nasal canula for the first night, but has been breathing completely on his own since then.  Little Will required a little help and was on the vent the first night, CPAP the second night, and this morning had graduated to a canula.  They aren't nippling/sucking so well at this point, but we are working on it, and I'm trying to get the hang of this whole pumping thing.  The boys are absolutely adorable, and I can't wait until I can bring them home. 

I just wanted to thank everyone in this online community - when was admitted to the hospital almost 10 weeks ago with preterm labor, I was frightened and discouraged, and everyone here was so supportive and helpful during a bleak time.  This site has provided such a wonderful forum for me to vent my frustrations and questions and concerns, as well as learn from and gain encouragement from other's success stories.  I hope to post pictures of my little darlings soon.  They are so worth the 5 weeks of hospital, then 4+ weeks of home bed rest.   

Best wishes to all the other bed resting mommas out there!
