my girls are here!!!

ok well here goes It started with the week from hell!!!!! I had a doctors appt on monday, they opted to stick me in the hospital due to elevated blood pressure again, they needed to do a 24 hour urine to check for protein as well.anyway,.,, tuesday night bloodpressure was still up but protein was ok in the urine so I thought ok I am going home, lets get this show moving, my husband was out of town and DD was staying with MIL< just wanted to go home,  nope!! doctor said he did not feeel comfortable sending me home, thats what he told the nurse, and he would be in wednesday morning to talk to me.,wednesday AM he came in and said he felt at 36 weeks it was more risky to continue the pregnancy then it was to deliver due to my blood pressue, so.............. ayla donette was born at 230 pm weighing in at 5 pounds 14 ounces and myleigh chrystine came at 232 pm. weighing 5 pounds 4 ounces, both are doing great and I will post pics either tonight or tomorrow,, now!! Luci has developed post partum cardiomyopathy, I am now on 4 different meds, dr said it was from being older, Plus twin pregnancy so much blood volume going thru the heart has weakened the muscle, yes I am very scared, but confident that this can be fixed with meds.. I started getting really short of breath a few weeks ago, and the swelling was getting bad, at least they diagnosed it early enough, my girls are great, slightly jaundiced today, but not bad enough to not bring them home, and they have an appt monday with their pediatrician.. hope all is well with everything, and like I said I will post pics sometime tonight or tomorrow..

Luci no more weeks pregnant!!!! :)

Luci - you pm'd me about the cardiomyopathy.  The best thing for you to do is take the meds and get help!!  That more than anything will aid in your recovery - especially with the heart thing.

I'm thrilled for you and the girls - love those names by the way!!  CONGRATS - I too remember when you got your BFP.  Pm me anytime if I can be of any help!!! - jen
