We have babies!

Riley Ann and Paige Hope made their arrival last night at 33 weeks 3 days. They are, of course, in the NICU but are doing great. Riley weighed 4lb7oz and Paige came in at 4lb8oz.
* I'll post pics once I can write a proper post from my laptop*

Short story:
I ended up with preeclampsia so had to have an emergency C-section. It all actually happened quite fast. Because of the preeclampsia I have to be on magnesium for 24 hours after delivery to prevent seizures. I  am not allowed out of bed while on magnesium. So, I have not yet held my babies!! It's killing me. SH goes to the NICU and we are able to do FaceTime so I can see how they are doing. I am currently about 3 hours from finally getting to hold them. Finally. 

I'll update with more details soon.

  6. Wow! Totally not expecting this! I'm sure you weren't either! I'm so glad they made it safely and that you are doing okay as well, despite the preeclampsia and not being able to hold them quite yet. But soon! I absolutely love their names. I sooooo can't wait to hear the long story, and to see their pictures, but thank you so much for letting us know about their arrival! You take care of yourself so you can get to those baby girls.
