Stella and Alice are now 12 weeks old (or 6 weeks adjusted age since they were born 6 weeks early). Both girls are growing so much and doing really well. It's so great to see their adorable little smiles and we're just waiting to hear the first giggle. They make sweet cooing noises and are getting better neck control as time goes on.
A few days after coming home from that surgery everything kind of fell apart. I guess the hormone drop, the physical challenge of two surgeries so close together, and exhaustion hit me and Post Partum Depression really set in. I went from one day feeling like I could do the "twin thing" to feeling as though I couldn't function as a person, let alone a mom of 2 infants. Thankfully things have gotten under control now, and after med adjustments I'm feeling much better. PPD is a scary thing.

Interestingly I was contacted by a writer for Today's Parent magazine regarding PPD. She'd come across my blog and wanted to see if I would be willing to share some of my experience in a story in a special pregnancy issue about pregnancy and depression. Look for the story in the December issue!
