The Labor and Delivery Tour...

It went really well. First, she explained the lullaby that played throughout the hospital as we were getting on the elevator meant that a baby had just been born. She brought us to the waiting room and talked a little bit about deliveries and such. Then we went to the labor and delivery room and I asked about a twin c-section and she basically explained that I would not be put into a cute little room like the one we were standing in but that I'd go to the OR. Cool. Then after the c-section and a 2 hour recovery, I would get to go to the Mother/baby room and there I would meet my babies. I was a little upset to know that I wouldn't be holding them, bonding with them until they were several hours old but it is what it is. Good news is my husband will be with them the whole time, either in the nursery or the NICU. Once I'm moved to my room, if babies are in good health, they'll be in the room with me. I love that. All we have left to do is register and then wait.

What an exciting step that you've completed. I'm sure it is making you even more anxious to meet your babies! :-)
