Over the past few weeks, I've been seeing so many artsy #treeoflife breastfeeding images on my social media feeds. I think they are beautiful so I made my own!
I'm over on Boston Mom's Blog talking about the twin mom community!
Our twins were born on Saturday night and we had been at the hospital since Thursday. After my delivery in the OR, we spent a short time back in Labor and Delivery and were soon moved to Maternity. I was feeling better than I expected but was still coming off my epidural and couldn't walk well. I was, however, starving because I hadn't had a real meal since lunch the day before. We ordered food from a restaurant down the street and I had the best eggplant parm sandwich of my life!

As I mentioned in our last post, it was quite a surprise to find out at 12 weeks we were expecting twins! I was fortunate enough to have a pretty uneventful pregnancy. I was nauseous and sick weeks 6-11 and I was pretty tired all throughout. Every morning before going to work, I’d be sick and wonder how I would be able to teach children all day. I ate pretzels nonstop during the day and took power naps in my office during lunch!

Part 2: Our Story: Twin Pregnancy
Part 3: Our Story: Labor and Vaginal Delivery of Twins
My husband, Ben, and I found out just before Christmas 2014 that I was pregnant. We were thrilled! We hadn’t been actively trying to get pregnant but we also weren’t not trying. We were very excited to tell our families over the holidays.
