Here's my story....
I finally made it. The big day was so awesome. My twin boys have arrived before X-mas. For the past 3 weeks I have been dialted to 5 but, my Dr. wanted me to wait to make it to 38 weeks. I had a very easy pregnacy except for the darn pelvic pain and swollen feet my Dr kept pushing the birth until after x-mas. The schedule induction was for DEC. 26 at 5:00am. But as my story begins so does the date of our babies birthday. On the morning of DEC. 19 I went in to my regular schedule Dr. appt. I was 37 weeks 2 days as I was feeling okay and extremely hungry I was anxious to finish Xmas shopping for the rest of the day. However Dr. tells my after my exam that I needed to walk over the Hospital because I was fully dialated to 8. I was so shocked!!!! I didn't have any contractions. I was feeling good. So husband and I packed our bags gave our daughters hugs and kisses and off we went to the hospital. I arrived at the hospital at noon 12:00pm and after 3 1/2 hrs. of labor:
Baby "A" Luke Rafael arrived at 3:21 weighing at 5pds 15 ounces 19 1/2 inchs long and Baby "B" John Mark arrived at 3:26 weighing at 6pds 9ounces 19 inches long.
Babies were born vaginally everying was fine and are very healthy. I myself I'm shocked that the whole experience went very smooth and quickly. We came home after 24hrs in the hospital and the breastfeeding is going well also. I'm a little soar and tired but, its so worth it to see the miracle of two babies in your belly that are now in your arms to hold and love.
Good luck to those who are expecting real soon.
