Congratulations!!!! I'm so glad that the three of you are healthy - even though it took a little extra to get there!

Riley Faith got tired of waiting and made her appearance at 9:25 Tuesday morning, after just 5 hours of labor and arriving 2 minutes before the doctor. After a little persuasion, her brother Gavin Arthur followed at 9:49. Mom is thrilled that we avoided a c-section--both came naturally, and Riley made it without any pain meds!

I was able to nurse both of them in the first hour. Riley did really well, Gavin not so much. Gavin ended up having some breathing problems and had to be in the nursery for a while. He's fine now, and both are nursing like champs.

I didn't do as well as either of them. A few hours after they were born, my PE got worse--I was vomitting and really out of it, unable to rouse, and my reflexes were really brisk. My memories of the rest of that day are pretty hazy, but I was put on mag for almost 48 hours. I didn't see the babies again for 24 hours, but then was able to start nursing for short times. I'm feeling better now, hopefully no more setbacks. We hope to be home tomorrow, so I'll be able to post more then.
