They were delivered via c-section Monday (34 weeks 3 days). Logan was born at 1:21pm and Zachary was born at 1:22pm. The c-section was painless, the recovery... not so much. Today I made my first bathroom trip and it took over a half an hour to get from the bed to the bathroom, go, change my pad, and get back to bed.
Logan and Zachary are in the NICU, but doing well. They are being given some oxygen, but are breathing on their own. They expect them to be there for about a week. Zachary is doing so well, they think he might be taken off the oxygen tomorrow. Then all he has to do is be able to eat on his own and he is set.
I was put on mag. sulfate for 24 hours after the birth. It SUCKED. It made me really loopy, I couldn't get to the NICU, and they also limited how much water I could have. It was miserable. I got taken off it at 2:00 today and started feeling better RIGHT afterwards. After resting some and getting prepared, I made my way to the NICU. We got to hold them for the first time tonight and it was wonderful! I didn't want to leave, but the pain pills were making me kinda sleepy. I figured it wouldn't be good to be sleepy when I was holding them for the first time!
I am glad that they won't have to be there too long.
I am trying to pump some breastmilk, but am only getting mouisture at the moment. They told me it would take about 3 days before my milk came in. In the meantime I am trying to stimulate the production.
We are so happy that the boys are healthy, and that my blood pressure is down! :-)
We have pictures on our website, and will be posting more soon.
