The Twins Birthday has been scheduled!

I have known for a while now that I am going to have to have a c-section. Our sweet baby girl is breech, she is baby A and in order to even try for a natural birth baby A must be head down. I have been grieving this news from the moment I heard c-section. I have had three natural births, so this is a big change for me. However, the blessing in this, as explained by my doctor, is that when baby girl turned breech she was no longer engaged in the birth canal thus preventing the pre-term labor I had been trying to ward off.

What do Robert Millikan (think oil-drop experiment & Nobel Prize winner), Louis L'Amour and William Shatner have in common? They will share a birthday with your two cuties. What a great day to choose! As a bonus, (as if you need another reason) it is after the vernal equinox, so there's more light now than dark! That could possibly lead to better circadian rythm AND sleeping through the night.

Praying for you and your precious babies, for peace of mind for you, for the best, most comfortable c-section in the history of c-sections, and for healthy screaming babies.

Brandon's advice for Colin: let someone else take the pictures, and don't look over the drape.
