We have almost made it through the first two weeks! We are slowly adjusting to little sleep but the girls are settling into a groove at night. They go 3-4 hours between a feeding before awakening again. This has left us with around 6 hours total (not straight!) of sleep a night. It could be worse! Maddie and Guenter are adjusting to not being the top dogs all the time. They are great kids, and have really created a best friend bond with each other, because Mommy and Daddy are so busy. Guenter has had to help me in the middle of the night with feedings. Basically I pump and feed one and he feeds the other. We are doing breast milk only (but in a bottle). This is new to Guenter as I solely breastfed Maddie and he did not have to help at night.
Guenter is still very curious about the girls, and is constantly asking ... "why are they crying, which one is that mom, can I pet her head, can I hold her" it is amazing the difference in age between Maddie and Guenter in understanding the concept of the girls. Maddie tends to hang back when it comes to the girls, and is still not very interested.
We still do not know if the girls are identical. They are starting to look more alike every day. There is a test for $200, that you can have done to check for identicals. We might end up doing it more for curiousity than anything.
Guenter will start back at work full time next week (he has been doing 1/2 days at home). So I need prayers!! I tend to feel a little out numbered, it is like a daycare center around here (1:4 ratio) . I look foward to being able to get out more when the girls are a little older.
As far as my C-section goes, I think I am doing awesome. I stopped taking ibuprofen and am in very little pain and can do most things now. I will have to say that I would take a vaginal delivery over a C-section any day. I think it takes away from the fun of the delivery. But we are thankful they are here ... and we are done with having kids! We are now complete as the Kryszon 6!!
