Birth Announcement!

The castle is proud to announce the birth of our new TWIN girls!
Born Monday, June 9th 2008 somewhere between 7:30 and 9am.
Weighing in at 350ccs each.

(This is as close as you are gonna get to actually seeing them, so ... DEAL!)
The delivery was painless. 
My surgeon & anesthesiologist are GENIUSES. 
I was home by 11am feeling great.
I have some mild swelling and bruising, but nothing like some of the freak shows I have seen on Dr. 90210. (Really, that Dr. Rey ain't all that.)
I must wear the above elastic pressure band until my post-op appt next Monday at which time I will receive another apparatus designed to keep the girls in place. Aside from that, the girls are out in the open and haven't seemed to mind the occasional peaks and pokes from curious onlookers (namely myself and Prince Charming).
My recovery has been remarkably easy, except for the hideous allergic rash to one of  my meds that has been creeping across my torso since Monday leaving me looking like a Leper.
I may have to call upon my dermatologist if this shit doesn't clear up by tomorrow.
Aside from that, I am taking it easy and enjoying the peace and quiet as Prince Charming takes care of the kids.
And scouring through the big girl bras in the latest Victoria's Secret catalog.

Congrats on the twins! You'll want to stay away from underwire bras for a while - at least until all the healing is done. One really great thing about the twins - they don't require a bra to look great!

Ack!! I'm so jealous. Not to be a total perv, but can't we see the girls in a tank top or something?
