Well my babies are finally here......On Tuesday I went into the docto for my NST test and I was having irregular but strong contractions. My doctor was out of town so the woman doctor came in and said that she wanted to check to see if I was dilating.....I was at one but since I had two previos c-sections she wanted me to wait in the office, take terbutaline and get checked again in 45 minutes. Well I took the medicine and she checked me again and I was at three so they put me in a wheelchair and wheeled me to l&d.
An hour later I was getting my spinal bock and they started.......baby A (Bailey) was born first weighing 4.12 ounces at 4:39 pm and at 4:40 Brauch was born weighing 5.14. I was 36.5 weeks pregnant according to doctor but by date of conception I was 37.5 weeks. As you all can see the boy was taking all the food and I suspect that the girl had stopped growing due to lack of space.
I went to recovery and the babies went to the well baby nursery where they stayed until about 9:30 p.m. because Brauch was grunting when he was breathing. The babies are great and we are finally home...discharged late Friday afternoon. I am breastfeeding both of them but while I was in the hospital I had to supplement with formula because they would not stay awake long enough to eat.
I am still sore bit moving around great comsidering this was my third c-section......the babies sleep alot! I think it is because they are small but they are doing great breastfeeding.
I will send pics soon!!!
