Neither of them had turned to be head down so they were born by caesarean section, which went as well as could be expected, although it did mean a stay in hospital for a few days afterwards. The babies were delivered at minimal cost to us at one of Hong Kong’s public hospitals – Pamela Youde Eastern Hospital – and the care was excellent (even if the food wasn’t quite to my taste!)
Since then we’ve mostly been learning how to take care of two babies (it’s a steep learning curve!). It’s been pretty tiring so far but they’re so cute that it keeps me going on very little sleep! Tom has been fantastically supportive and has stepped into his new role as a dad with gusto :)
Here are some more photos. Firstly, Jack:
And Isobel (mostly sleeping, which is what she does):
And the two together at home :)
(I promise this won’t turn into a baby blog, but I’ll continue to post updates from time to time for those who are interested!)
Obviously the twins will take a higher priority than this blog, but I will try to continue to post regularly, if not as frequently as at the moment.
Thanks for reading, I really do appreciate it. And I hope you will stick with me during this period of change and upheaval!
