They are here!

This is gonna be another very quick post...I went in on Monday for my biweekly NST and sonogram and baby B's heart was a little fast. The OB said it probably meant nothing but wanted me to go to L&D for observation and then to induce since I was already 39w1d and it was "time" (considering I was walking around dilated to 5 or 6, I agreed) . So, over we went. We got there at noon, were on an NST until 4. At 4 they started very light pitocin, at 4:45 I got my required epidural, at 5 they broke my water and the girls were born at around 8pm. Things went fast...it was crazy. Hannah (baby A) was born head first and then they pulled Seane (baby B) out by her little feet a few minutes later. It got a little hairy when it appeared a shoulder was stuck, but I pushed once and out she came, she had one loop of cord around her neck, they pulled it off, rubbed her a bit, she was breathing and fine! They were 6lbs 2oz and 6lbs 4 oz, respectively and they are perfect. They do not look alike at all...barely appear to be sisters, let alone twins, which I think is wonderful. Seane looks just like Teagan did as a baby and Hannah totally looks like herself. They are amazing. Teagan is actually being a great big sis and seems excited about them. Here are a few quick pics taken in the hospital...

WOW! YEAH!!!! They are adorable! How amazing to carry twins 39 weeks and have them over 6 pounds each, AND to be able to deliver the old fashioned way! Go, you!

All of those years, all of that work to conceive, and now look at how blessed you are! I'm so happy for you!

Wow!!! That is fantastic that you carried them over 39 weeks and delivered then vaginally. You'll have to tell us how to pronounce Seane, is it Shawn or See-Ann? So happy for you and hope you'll have time to update us once in awhile. They are beautiful. Hugs!
