Sorry folks, it's been a while.  But I have good reason.

My twinbies, well they were due june 19th. We were scheduled for c-section at 38 weeks on June 7th... Well they had a mind of their own and the good Lord had a plan of His own. 

Monkey Butt at 34 weeks and 2 days. 

I had this great idea that for mothers day I wanted to take the kids to the zoo.  That was a lot of fun but it spiraled from there. My swelling was getting worse and worse and I was starting to have more pains, so on Thursday morning.. I just couldn't take the pain anymore, I was obviously having contractions... I never had those with my other two monkeys, so this was new.  Well, like I said I couldn't stand it anymore.. I decided to call my work and family, I was going to swing by my Dr office and have them check me out.. Just to make sure they weren't too close or anything like that.
Yes they're definitely contractions and they wanted me to go to the hospital .

Oh you know how that goes, but I made calls and had Mr MB on the way to get me as well as my aunt and grandma.  

So the checking begins.

By the middle of the day I was ready to go home, I'd already been pumped with so much fluid that I was even more miserable, they'd offered to sedate me (which I refused) and one nurse even went as far to tell me that if I left it would be against their orders. When the Dr came in with his shots, I almost had him talked into letting me leave, but the shots they'd given me didn't make the contractions stop and they came back to tell me I definitely would be spending the night. With my other monkeys at school and daycare, this was stressful to me. 

Settled in for the night and the discomfort gets greater.  

Sometime after midnight, my twin A decided it was time.  It felt like he kicked the hell out of me and his water broke.  Looks like it's going to be go time.

My baby monkeys were born Friday, May 13th and 34 weeks and 4 days. Given them an automatic trip down to the NICU.

These pictures are pretty recent.  

My baby A is home with us. My baby B is still in the NICU. 

But we're getting closer.  

I'll try to update more later. 

Thanks for all whose hung in there.
