What do I remember about 11 years ago today?? Checking into the hospital at 6 am being 38 weeks pregnant with twins. (38 weeks is considered full term for twins.) The plan was to induce my labor. I panicked a bit when I found out "Baby B" (Jacob) was still in breech position. I almost opted for a c-section, but my doctor was confident that I could deliver them...especially since Jacob would be the second baby in the delivery. (Turns out he was right, but I wouldn't say it was a "walk in the park"...)
What else do I remember? The anesthesiologist taking forever to come to my room and give me an epidural....and later finding out his "pager" was not on!!?? Hello?? I kept saying, "I know it's taking forever"...because everyone kept saying "5 more minutes" (what seemed like 300 times!)
Kristin Mary was born at 6:44 pm
6 lbs. 4 oz.
Jacob George was born at 6:59 pm
6 lbs. 10 oz.
In the end, everyone was healthy and we were soooo happy to have a baby girl and baby boy. We still feel as blessed today as we did then! I love that our twins are a boy and a girl and how close they have been growing up together and still are today!! (I think God gave me a boy and a girl so I could be sure to tell them apart!)
Happy Birthday J and K -- Love You!!!*
* For the record, let it be said what a great big sister Megan was and always has been! June is a little rough on Megan...it's my birthday, Father's Day and her brother and sister's birthday. So, to you Megan, I remind you that the other 362 days of the year are "Megan's Day" if you think about it!! (If you have a 13 1/2 year old, you might know what I mean! ;)
