Well my babies are now 6 days old and I finally am able to spend a few minutes on the computer. ON Monday the 13th my son broke his water at 2:15 AM and I was already up and in the bathroom and I new that wasn't pee I was doing. SO I called the doc, my mom and my sister in law and we headed to the hospital. MY hubby was so nervous and my 7 yr old daughter was upset she had to wake up until I told her her Aunti was picking her up!!
They did the test to see if I really did break my water and it was a positive so the c section happened. I did very well wasn't nervous at all. Of course it's not fun nearly being tilted and knowing what's going on. But my hubby was taping it and my mom was up by my head. I just couldn't wait for it to be all over because then I'd be able to go to my room and recouperate. Out came my son LOGAN first he was crying up a storm so beautiful weighing in at 4lbs 10 oz and then came my ABBY the doc was having a real hard time getting a hold of her. He told me she was swimming up in her sac and he couldn't puncture the bag until she was out of his way. He said she was being a little "BASTARD" we all laughted!! MY OB is a very funny guy! So out came Abby with a tiny little cry and my mom said she was just staring all around quiet as can be. She weighed in at 3lbs 5 oz. So Logan was born at 5:05 AM and Abby was born at 5:08 AM!
Both are still in the NICU. They never had to go on oxygen. Logan is in an Isolet and he just needs to gain some weight and maintain good eating skills which I believe he'll be home this week.
Abby is the smallest she had to go under the lights for Jaundice but we would be able to hold her for feedings. She feeds extremely well. It's so weird to see such a little thing be fine and eating and breathing. I was very fortunate none of these 2 had to go on any kind of breathing machine or any oxygen at all!
So now we just have to wait for both to get big enough to come home. I won't sugar coat it. It's very very tough leaving the NICU. I live 15 minutes away but emotionally I can't deal w/ my babies being somewhere else. I know they are in a great place but as a mom to go home to my 7 yr old and heal for me it's rough. At least my breast milk has come in and I can pump every 2-3 hrs to get them to fatten up! I feel useful some how w/out them at home! So now I have to go see my babes but just wanted to let everyone know it's done it's over they are here and I will post pics whenever I have more down time!!
Thanks for all your well wishes over the last 34.5 weeks!!
