My Girls are Here!!

Girls arrived safely at 8:22/8:23am Monday the 6th December 2010. They all came out crying and didnt need any ventilation. Our first born was 2.04kg, second 1.8kg and third 1.7kg. It was one of the most surreal, amazing experiences in the world. I felt like I was dreaming and had to pinch myself a couple of times. They had their first feeds at 3pm today, 3ml per feed every 3 hours, they were so hungry they gobbled it all up. Im expressing every 3-4 hours and surprisingly got a decent amount to work with.

Im feeling OK, a bit sore but nothing too serious. I got 3 morphine injections last night and finally had to tell the doc that i couldnt possibly have any more. I was in a drug haze and to be honest didnt need it, terrible stuff. Emotionally Im OK too which is also surprising as I was preparing for some ups and downs.

Will post again asap.

    So excited for you! Thinking of you tomorrow when you go home…remember that your babies are in good hands.
    I remember how terrible that morphine was…I also had to ask them to stop giving it to me…I felt so drugged and out of it!

    This is such awesome news, Dee! I’m sooo excited with you. I even feel a bit teary when I try to imagine how amazing it must have been to meet your girls.

    They’re such little troopers too! You must feel so proud. Each breathing on their own – what a beautiful miracle.
