April 22nd, 2010
Ocean Michael was born at 9:30 a.m. and weighed 6 lbs 2 oz. Ever Ieleene was born two minutes later at 5 lbs 5 oz.
They are amazing and beautiful. We are head over heels in love with them.
The c-section went pretty well. Ever got stuck and they couldn't get her out, which has made recovery a touch more difficult. I was so hungry and thirsty but was not able to eat for almost more than 36 hours because I threw up a few hours afterwards. It turns out I threw up a bucket of blood and I was scared to death! The doctors and nurses were too so I was put on lockdown. Yesterday I was in a world of pain, I couldn't believe how bad it hurt!
Ocean had issues with his blood sugar, his breathing, and his body temperature. I tried to nurse him right after the c-section but they ended up taking him away and I didn't see him for 24 hours! He was supposed to be able to come in by the evening, but the nurse said he couldn't and I cried like a baby! I was so happy to see him yesterday morning. He is hilarious and makes the funniest faces.
Ever has the sweetest face with little tiny lips and a little tiny nose. She is such a sweetheart and a mommy's girl! I've already made the bad habit with her of letting her get in bed with me and snuggle everytime she fusses. This morning I slept with both babies in my bed for two hours and it was wonderful!
Hubby is the best daddy on the planet. We are having the best time. They were worth every single second of the wait, all the tears, the therapy and all the sadness that we experienced over the last several years. I could just stare at their little faces all day!
We are going home Sunday!
Ever and Mommy
