My Boys are here!!! — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

My Boys are here!!!

First, I apologize for the block of text to come...I am on my phone :). The boys made their entrance yesterday....Miles Gallo born at 8:50 am 4lbs 9oz and Graham Donald at 8:51 am 4lbs 15 oz. Both babies are in the nicu on canulalas but doing great! I am in a lot of discomfort from the csection but I am finally disconnected from everything, so that's a plus! I just wish I had some more stamina! The one thing I didn't expect was how swollen my legs would is seriously difficult to walk! I will post pictures soon and more of their birth story. Right now we are just in awe of how much these little guys mean to us....we are so in love!! Thank you for all the good thoughts and prayers...they mean so much!!
Miles and Graham...our miracle twinkies!

  • Oh, Char! Welcome to motherhood and congratulations! I was horrified at how swollen my feet were after I had the baby. It took over a week for them to go down. I was told the pitocin does that but I was induced so who knows but hang in there. I can't wait to hear your birth story and see your little guys! Dee
