Acting nervous as he wheels me down to the OR
Our boys are here! The surgery literally took only one hour from the time we left the room to the time we came back to the room. I was super nervous about the spinal block and how painful I had heard they were. My anxiety was only worsened when they made Boyfriend quit pushing the bed and wait outside for a bit. I was planning on squeezing his hand if I was in pain, so like a big baby, I cried. The spinal didn't hurt at all, but I'm still upset they took so long to let Boyfriend back in the room.

feeling nauseous

Introducing Eli!

I'm so impressed with what an amazing dad B is. He didn't have a ton of baby experience prior to Ethan and Eli coming, but he just jumped right in and not only does an amazing job taking care of them but taking care of me too. We never argue over who has to change a dirty diaper, one of us just does it. He forces me to take naps and has stayed on top of filling out the feeding/diaper chart we were given to make sure they're eating enough. He keeps track of all my medicines (hydracodone, iron, ibuprofen, etc.) and never complains when I need  to wake him up to help me position the babies for feeding - I'm feeding them together already. Today is his first day back at work and he's been such a great person to help raise Ethan and Eli with that I can't wait for him to come home.

  17. This is a tear-jerker. They're adorable! I heard from my sister that normal delivery hurts a lot, especially the spine. Thinking about it just makes me squint! She had to have labiaplasty after giving birth to my second nephew who's a little bigger than we expected. I had to stay with her in California to help her with the baby shopping while her hubby was away. You're so lucky to have twins! You even looked great.
