March 28, 2016–Part II

Once the twins were born, Doug was with them while they were measured and weighed in the recover room. Once I was finished with surgery, they wheeled me into the recovery room. The twins were just perfect!

I sent Doug out to tell the family that we were ok and to share the news that we had two girls!

He was greeted by a crowd waiting for his arrival. They were upset he was so late, but it actually was not his fault. It took a _long_ time to get my spinal in and that delayed the surgery. When he finally arrived in the room they were very excited.


Doug planned to use light and darkness to share the names since we had been calling them “light” and “dark” the whole pregnancy.

He made copper shadow art to share the names. Here they are.


From the shadowed names they figured it out it was two girls and that Poppi and won the birth/sex guessing game!


She was pretty pumped. They also figured out we had two girls by the names. Doug shared the names and assured everyone that we were all ok.


Even Alex and Janice were there to share in the joy!

Honestly, the rest of the night was a blur. I think they gave me some pain drugs so I do not remember all of it in detail, but here are some things I remember…

-We breastfed before guest arrived and they latched perfectly!

-Everyone came to visit me and the twins!
