The short of it!

1 day past giving birth!!!

I delivered the twinkies yesterday (8/6 - 35 weeks 4 days) morning.  I had the most AMAZING vaginal delivery w/S in the room w/me!! Ray and JP were w/B in the room by the OR :)  Owen arrived at 820am after only 7 minutes of pushing.  His sister Ellie arrived at 835am after only again about 7 minutes of pushing!!  Dr. B had to just get her down a lil farther because after Owen was born she was "swimming" in all of the open space, so that's why there was a gap! 

Owen - 4lbs 9oz
Ellie - 5lbs 2oz 

They are up in the regular nursery and expected to stay about a week.  S & B are just over the moon which is just amazing to see.  I swear it couldn't have gone any better. The babies are gorgeous.  Don't worry I will post pics ;-)  I feel so blessed and honored to be their surrogate. Ahhh -- I just feel great!

Until Tomorrow,

Just Whitney ;-)

I'll give the BIG story tomorrow!!
