    Hello everyone!

    After a long day waiting for the c-section, and a wicked-bad case of post-operative nausea, this is the first chance I've gotten to get to the computer.

    Baby a ("Thadeus"):
    It's a Girl!
    Name: Paulina Kaye M.
    Weight: 5 lbs, 8 oz.
    Time of birth: 3:46 pm

    Baby b ("Scott"):
    It's a Boy!
    Name: Basil Raymond M.
    Weight: 5 lbs, 15 oz.
    Time of birth: 3:47 pm

    The docs were debating whether to try and wait a bit longer, when I went into labour and took the decision out of their hands. they got me into the operating theatre as soon as they could for the c-section.

    Even though both babies are big and strapping, they're still very early. Basil and Paulina both have wet-lung and low blood-oxygen levels. The paed-doctor doen't think they are in danger of permanent impairment but it's scary to watch them lying in the NICU fighting for each breath.

    If you can spare a prayer or 2 for my precious ones it would be much appreciated.

    One very cool thing...
    The anaesthesiologist was my dear friend C's baby brother. I think I got a bit of extra cossetting as a result.

    Many thanks to Star's Dude for sharing his birthday with my littles.

    AbsoLUTEly sending up prayers :angel2:for the babies' safety and speedy healing of their wee lungs! The little angels...

    I am so delighted to hear you are doing well and that they are finally here... they will be screaming loudly and out of the NICU in no time at all. I hope you are able to get over the post-op queasies and rest and recuperate. You're going to have your hands VERY full, VERY soon!!!

    They're in the best place right now, until their breathing stabilises. It won't be long, they'll be in your arms and home.

    Hang in there.

    Awwww....a girlie and a boy! How precious is that? We are going to have to change "her" name though on the Thadeus just wont do for a girl.

    I am praying like crazy. My step sis was a neonatal ICU nurse, then supervisor before she moved up into admin. She took good care of those little ones. Yours sound big enough and I am sure they started you on the medications to help with their lung development before birth. I bet they will come through this with flying colors. After all, they are our niece and nephew so they have to be fighters!

    Oh...goody...I get to go shopping for a twin outfit!!!!

    One of each Trinity? OH MY GOSH - and what a lovely gift from the man upstairs - one of each! Just such a lovely blessing. CHecks fingers-toes....mmmmhmmmm and little tiny everything else....okay. And the lungs will puff up - they've just been squished in a space normally made for one and WOW they are healthy 5lbs plus? Yeah - they just need some breathing room and they will be using those lung in NO TIME...;) but prayers never hurt.

    I can not WAIT to tell Dude what his gift was - he said a boy and a girl. lol. So Mommie, Mommie...CONGRATULATIONS...and ....ahem - like Kenny Loggins said - THIS IS IT. Right?? No no ----let's try for triplets.....(donk):faint:

    YOU DONE GOOD MOMMA! I BET THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL and being YOUR children - we already know they are fighters and surviviors!

    Trinity, I am so happy for you that they are here and all three of you have survived. I think this may be the first time I got tears when a birth was announced.
    Take care of yourself and watch the babies as they grow tons in the days ahead.
    They are big babies which is good.
    Congrats to you and your husband and your babies.

    Welcome Paulina and Basil!!! Trinity, you grew them well. Those are impressive weights.

    Sending many good thoughts for speedy resolution of the lung issues. I know the NICU is a very scary place - all those buzzers and beepers, the tubes and wires and stuff. The good news is that the kidlets are such a good size and you were able to carry them as long as you did. Hopefully the doctors. will get them tuned up and home ASAP.

    In the meantime, take care of you. And congratulations, on your new little bundles!!
