I love to walk so my 2 sons, Adam and Jacob and I went for a walk. Where we live is nice and hilly so I figured it would be nice exercise and maybe get things going. Well I had been having cramping since the prior evening so we weren't planning on going on that long of a walk. As always I brought my cell phone with me just in case. It made my husband feel better.

Well, we got about 1/2 way down the block and I felt some trickling so I called my husband and had him come get us. He didn't want me walking home. Well then all of a sudden I was in so much pain. The contractions didn't feel anything like what I remembered them feeling like with the boys. So, we called the dr and they told us to meet them at the hospital.

I got there and was dilated to about 4. They broke the rest of my water, I guess it didn't break all the way. About 40 minutes later it was time to push. I had epidurals with both my boys so this time I wanted to try natural. Delivery went really easily for me this time around as opposed to with the drugs. Ilana Nicole was born at 1:24 pm and Stefanie Alexis was born 23 minutes later at 1:47 pm on July 7, 2007. They were 3 weeks early, I was due on July 29th.

It was short and sweet and the easiest labor I had by far. It's been a lot to get used to having twins. I will try and post pics as soon as I can. I don't have them on my laptop and my husband is out of town until Thursday on a business trip.

editing to add: I can't believe I forgot to put their weights and stuff here.

Ilana Nicole was 4 lbs 8 oz and 18 in long. Stefanie Alexis was 4 lbs 5 oz and just under 18 in long.
