They are here!!!!

On Tuesday morning at 8:25 Cameron Nicole was born weighing 5 lbs 8 oz. and 19 1/2 in. Then at 8:26 Taylor Abigail was born weighing 5 lbs. 11 oz. and 18 in. Taylor went to the nursery and was doing great. Cameron had a little trouble breathing and spent most of Tuesday in the NICU. By 5:00 they brought her to my room. I lost a lot of blood and spent a long time in recovery after surgery. But once I got my feeling back and my temperture back to normal I was OK. Taylor has done a great job at nursing. Cameron is having a harder time catching on. On Friday, we got to all go home. It has been wild since then. I haven't slept much at all. Most of my sleep is in 30 min. incriments. Its hard! I have felt sick, b/c I am so tired. Dustin and my mom have helped a lot. They take turns getting up me. I have to get up every time to nurse. Taylor is going through a time where she wants to nurse all the time. I am working as much as I can to get her on a schedule. We are working on getting the pics posted on this site. Dustin had some trouble and put pics on a different site. You can go to www.checkthepoint.com/walkerbabies I will try to keep updating. We are finally getting internet at home next week sometime and we are getting a digital camera from Dustin's sister Kerry for Christmas. Thanks Kerry, Kane, & Emma!!!! Well I'll talk to y'all later.

It's soon

Well we only have 4 days till we'll have babies. I can't believe it. My mom is here and Dustin's mom gets here Sat. night. We are really excited. Today we went to the police dept. to make sure we put the car seats in correctly. We are trying to tie up any loose ends. Mom and I washed the receiving blankets and burp cloths the other day. Well check back here around Thanksgiving and we hope to have pictures of the girls on this site.

We have a date!

O.k. so today we went to have another non-stress test and everything looked great. Then we went to a Dr.'s appt. He said that both babies are flipped the wrong way. He said Christmas would have ot come early for them to flip. He said our options were c-section or c-section. So we scheduled a c-section for Tuesday, November 23rd. I will be 37 weeks that day. Now of course I could still go into labor before then but if I don't that's the day. It is really weird to pick your kids birthday. We picked the 23rd because it was the 1st available day. We are both so excited it's crazy. My mom gets here this coming Tuesday so she should be here for everything. She's real excited about that. To bad though b/c I don't think they are going to let her come into the operating room with us. They said there are going to be so many Dr.'s and nurses there that the room will be packed. So in less than 2 weeks we are going to have babies!!

34 weeks

I am 34 weeks now! I am happy that I've made it this far. For the babies' sakes I hope that I can make it as far as they need. BUT I am ready!!!!!!!!!!! I never wanted to be that person that says I don't want to be pregnant anymore, but it's time. I am sure that I don't have any more room in my belly for them to grow. I have an internal bruise right at the bottom of my rib cage. I can only assume that its from the babies pushing on my ribs. I had a non-stress test this past Thursday and everything still seems to look great. My blood pressure was low and they took it at least 4 or 5 times. Then the doctor said well maybe if you sit up it will be good and wouldn't youknow it when I sat up it raised about 20 points. I'm sure it's not called points but I don't know what to call it. Anyways I guess the babies were laying on something that made my blood pressure higher. I don't know?????? I am so excited about having the babies!! Every time I go to the hospital to have that test done we go over to the nursery to look at all the new babies. Usually there aren't that many, but this past Thursday there were 13 babies. They were so cute!!! I can't believe that probably within a couple of weeks we'll have 2 little babies in there. My mom gets here on Nov. 16th. She really hopes that she'll be here when I deliver and i hope so too!!!! So once she gets here I am going to go walking like everyday. Maybe that will help me to go into labor. Well I'll talk to y'all later!!!!!
