Unfortunately, due to swelling, carpal tunnel, and vomiting, Janea had to be induced on May 6. At the same time hundreds of miles away, Shanea was being told she'd have to undergo a C-section due to preeclampsia. Shanea's daughter Emerie Barlow was born at 1:09 p.m. As for Janea's new bundle of joy? Ryanne made her grand enterance into the world at 1:10 p.m. on the dot!
For both women, the first few days of motherhood are flying by. "I would say that this first week of motherhood has been the most exciting and frustrating week in my life," said Shanea. "I love to just sit there and stare at my daughter in amazement! I can't believe that I have created this tiny person whom is just perfect to me!"
Although Ryanne was born with jaundice, she's recovering well. "It's been a rough first week for me and Ryanne," said Janea. "She was admitted into the hospital for a few days. She's great now. I couldn't have remained strong for my baby without my sister encouraging me to stay positive and that everything would be OK."
