my babies made their reluctant entrance into the world.  We ended up having to evict them, after waiting until 39 weeks (their actual due date was the 22nd...I was so worried about them coming early.  HA!).  Which, with twins, is a ridiculously long time to be pregnant.  I'm glad we ended up inducing though, since another week in utero probably wouldn't have been the best for my little girl. Her placenta was a lot smaller than his and her cord was narrower.  I don't think I've ever been so upset by anything as I was by her birth, which (to me) was traumatic.  She ended up needing almost a week in the NICU, which was incredibly upsetting.  But she came home just 3 days after the rest of us, and everything is better now.  It's been a bit crazy with the two of them, but mostly good.  They are adorable!  And so tiny (7lb 1oz, 6lb 5oz)!  I'm really excited for them to get nice and fat!
