Walker: I'm having a difficult time coming up with words to describe what I'm feeling. I do not have writer's block. My friends & family will tell you that I always have something to say. However, words aren't working. After the ultrasound on Tuesday where the Deuce weighed a combined and whopping 13 1/2 lbs, I've been walking around in a confused state of I-don't-know-what.

Excited? That word doesn't quite work. I get excited about watching an Indiana Hoosiers basketball game. This is different. Much different.

Butterflies? I've had "butterflies" before, and the feeling subsides after awhile. Not this time. I've had butterflies for three straight days, and they are bigger too. All the butterflies I've had previously were those cute little ones you see on greeting cards. These butterflies? These are prehistoric. Neolithic. Pre-Cambrian. They're 747s. And there are thousands of them.

So I guess you could say I have butterflies...

I was just going through the 'next blog' links and I found your blog. I hope you dont mind me commenting.

I am a Mum to twin girls who are now 2 and a half. They weighed 7.5 and 7.9 pounds and were born by csection at 39 weeks. I just want to say that I know what you are going through and wish you all the greatest love. My girls have been the most amazing gift and I treasure every moment spent with them.

I only have one piece of advice.. dont be surprised by the floods of tears at day 2, 3 or 4. I couldnt speak without crying LOL! oh and anyone who tells you that it gets easier as they get older.... was LYING! LOL! I wish I had been told that. Otherwise you will enjoy deep breathing again soon and getting to meet your two gorgeous boys.

ps though my girls aren't identical I was told to make a non-toxic pen mark on one twin's shoulder to tell them apart, that way no one can see it under their clothes. Hope some of this helps. :-)
