I'm home.

I was discharged today, with changes to my blood pressure medication.....it's decided to remain high at times, so I'm still being evaluated for pre-eclampsia. Little did I know that it can occur anytime up to six weeks post-partum. I'm feeling ok. The nurses tell me I look great, even while I was on the magnesium sulfate drip post delivery. Not sure if they are being nice, or if I really do look good! Oh well, taking it one day at a time. My c-section incision, along with Chad, let me know when to slow down.

The babies are doing great! I'll share a picture of each now, but will share more later.

Chloe!

Connor!

I will share more photos later. I'm having camera and memory card issues.....luckily I at least downloaded pictures from their first few days.....nothing like making a new mommy even more emotional.

I won't be answering individual e-mails for awhile. This will be the best, and maybe only, place I'll be placing updates for awhile. Thank you for all the well wishes and thoughts. Chad, Chloe, Connor and I appreciate each and every one of them.

Later,
Jennie

Jennie, they are beautiful! So glad you're able to be home now. Let me know whenever you need to vent. We came home Friday with Zoe and David and I can't believe how much different life is!

Jennie,
They are just beautiful! Take care of yourself, my dear. Your ride is just beginning. Congratulations and I cannot wait to see more pics and hear more about them, although I will totally understand if we don't hear much from you. Those first few months are exhausting.

Hugs!

Beautiful babies! Take care of yourself and sleep when they sleep! That's what worked for me! I have three older kids when I had my twins a year and a half ago! Time flies, take lots of pictures and enjoy!
