Deightyn Christmas morning with her stocking and bear from Babs.
Deightyn 3 Weeks

Mairin 3 Weeks
My Mom's last day with us *sniff*. I so did not want her flying back home yet!
Thankfully all the worry over Mairin's fluid levels were for nothing. Both babies had no breathing problems, very little jaundice, no glucose issues due to the diabetes, held their temperature on their own like little champs and none of the other issues usually involved with preemie/twin births. Go girls!!!! They had zero NICU time which is pretty unheard of these days for these circumstances. I on the other hand had a terrible time. They had to give me pitocin in my drip because my uterus was not contracting like it should. The doctor said this was normal for a twin birth since the uterus was so severely stretched. My body did not, I repeat DID NOT like the pitocin. As soon as it hit my system I was a vomitting machine. This lasted for 24 hours. I was only able to see my girls for a short time that night because I was so sick. I made up for it the next day and every day since though!!! So welcome to the world my loves!!

They finally let us go home on Saturday, Nov. 24th. The girls are in their going home outfits here. These are preemie sleepers and they still swallow them whole. Mairin is on the left and is the spitting image of her Dad and Deightyn is on the left with the big peepers (she gets those from me).
Babs with Deightyn. I call her the tiny pickle.
Babs with Mairin. She is going to be quite the Diva.
I know it's taken too long to get these pics up but I've been busy as you can imagine. This is a quick post to get some pictures up but I will eventually get our experience posted from start to finish. At birth Mairin weighed 4 lbs 14 ozs and was 18 inches long and Deightyn weighed 4 lbs 6 ozs and was also 18 inches long. By the time we left the hospital on Saturday Mairin had lost down to 4 lbs 8 ozs and little Deightyn down to 3 lbs 14 ozs. Everything looked so well with them that that they let us take her home anyway. We went back to the pediatrician yesterday and she's back up to 4 lbs 2 1/2 ozs. Mom and I have been feeding her like champs and she's responding very well.
