JD and CJ are here

Postby zeepee » Jul 04, 2012 3:30 pm

I had my twins 6/23 @ 37 weeks and immediately felt better. First thing I asked for was water. Plain non-carbonated water. Folks keep commenting on how well I look after having a c-section, UTI (and constant fever), and pre-e not to mention newborn twins to care for. In all honestly this is a cake walk compared to being pregnant. I'm so happy it's over.

Congrats! I'm in the same boat with people commenting on how good I look, I think they're finally realizing how sick I actually was.

I love your comment about water, cause my brother-in-law (who took a week off of work to take care of our family while I was HGing it) asked me what I am enjoying the most now that I can eat, my response was WATER!

Beautiful twins! Congrats!
