Our Baby Brothers

The baby brothers are here!

I'll try to make a very long story short...

I went in for my 36 weeks growth scan and appointment on Wednesday.

They found that the boys were quite a bit different in size...enough to justify taking them out.  I went straight from the doctor's office to the hospital.

Within two hours, I was in surgery.  The boys were not so much different in size...Abram James was born at 2:31 pm and weighed 5 pounds 5 ounces and was 18.5 inches long.  Titus Matthew was born at 2:32 pm and weighed in at 5 pounds 11 ounces and 19.5 inches long. 

So, did we make a mistake in taking them out early?  Nope - and God knew!  As my doctor was performing the c-section, she noticed that the wall of my uterus was so thin, had I continued to contract over the next few days I probably would have suffered an abruption (which is life threatening to both mom and babies).  Praise God the doctor felt we needed to take the babies out, whatever the reason!

We are so enjoying our sweet boys.  They are doing very well...learning to eat and breathing perfectly on their own.  We hope to go home on Saturday.  And now you can enjoy some pictures...what you were really hoping for!

*You can find many more pictures on our Facebook pages until we're able to upload more to our computer.
