Happy Fifth Birthday to my lovely little twins, Kierra Mekenna and Jenna Madison!!! Five years old - wow!
I'll save you the hookey "I can't believe it's been five years..." Wait - no I won't!! Because I truly can't believe it HAS been five years!! Where has the time gone? It's true you know, you look back and wonder how it could have passed by so fast.
Five years ago, I was laying in the hospital marvelling over my beautiful new baby girls!! I was also on a lot of morphine. To re-count the days leading up to this wonderful occasion I had: 2 cervadils, 2 bags of pitocin, one internal monitor, one external monitor, 2 cookies snuck to me at 1:00 a.m. by a nice nurse, 1 ruptured membrane (Kierra's), 2 shots of Stadol, 1 BEAUTIFUL epidural, 35 hours of non-medicated induced labor, 6 hours of epidural-induced sleep, one hour of contractions that were 30 seconds apart and 2 minutes long, 1 husband and my mother eating Krispy Kreme donuts in front of me laboring (jerks!), 3 c-section warnings, 1 bitch nurse I swore at, approximately 2 "son of a bitchs", 70 "this fucking hurts" and 1 "get away from me, you aren't helping me at all", 1 operating room, 2 OBGYNS, 2 anesthesiologists fighting with each other, 6 nurses, 2 pediatricians, 7 shots of lainicaine in the stomach (my epi wore down and they couldn't cut me yet), 1 cut in the uterus, 1 baby born at 12:37 am, 1 more baby born at 12:39 am, 2 very extremely happy parents, 2 pints of blood missing = one of the best experiences in my entire life!!
LOL sounds fun huh? Honestly you don't remember a lot of it. I mean yes I remember the scenario of events (well not all of it, there was 4 hazy hours that I get testimony from my mom and husband about - let's just say I wasn't nice during that time). But the best part was lying in my hospital bed around 5:30 am holding my babies. We were by ourselves and I was just staring at them thinking, "I can't believe you both are mine!" That was the most rewarding feeling I had ever felt. All the years of infertility heartache, the procedures and the endless injections were worth it all.
So I wish my sweethearts a wonderful birthday. This day is not only about the five wonderful years you have spent on this earth, making people smile. It's about my journey and celebration in finding what I was put on this Earth to do. To be your mom!
