The sunnybubs are here!Went for a Doppler scan on Wed to check the umbilical cords. At the end of the scan they called my OB then came back in, said go home, get your hospital bag and go straight to hospital.Scan appt at 11:30am, wheeled to theatre at 4:30pm. At 5:14pm twin left was born, he is Robert Charles, 2325gm or 5lb2oz at 46cm. Then at 5:16pm he was joined by twin right, now known as Charlotte Joy, 2020gm or 4lb7oz at 45cm.They are doing relatively well for 36 weeks. No breathing support needed, Robert is now off his IV, Charlotte will probably need IV fluids for another 24hrs. Photos to follow.
Welcome to the world Charlotte and Robert!! Amazingly wonderful news @Sunnygirl04!!! I'm so thrilled for you. I very much look forward to seeing their sweet little faces. Thanks for taking the time to share your happy news with us. You must be shattered after your c-section. Tender hugs for all three of you, xxx.
Congratulations Sunnygirl04. Such an exciting time. Fingers crossed they get to come home with you shortly. Well done on getting to 36 weeks. Carrying twins is hard work. You did great, they're both a good size.
Tahli, so happy you have been gifted some embryos...lucky you and a big fat kiss to the lovely lady/couple who have donated to you.
