on July 3rd, 2007

Sarah Trinity at 1:03 a.m. with 2950g and 49cm, head was 33cm

Hannah Tiara at 1:05 a.m. with 2530g and 51cm, head was 32.5cm

I went to l&d on June 25th with regular contractions but I guess they weren't strong enough I was about 3cm dilated, as I was already 38 weeks with the twins and huge they wanted to keep me at the hospital, so there I stayed with contractions off and on, but no changing cervix. On July 1st I started having pretty strong contractions and went down to delivery after, walking and talking a nice long bath they send me back up to my room as I wasn't progressing past 4cm. At around10pm a doctor got me to go back to delivery as my contractions seem way to strong to be sitting in the teakitchen. So I called dh to come back and went down to l&d. After a night of regular 3 minute apart contractions I was still not further than 4cm. At around 10 a.m. I got an epidural and they applied some prostaglandine gel in hope I start progessing. At 11p.m. we went to sleep, no changes. At 11:30 I started feeling contractions again, but way low. I was checked and got to 6cm, docs were called (needed 3 of them as Hannah was still laying sideways) I got another shot for the epi as I wasn't allowed to push until the docs arrived, which was at around 1 am . Sarah came out with about 3 pushes head first apgar 9/10/10 and Hannah after an internal version came out 2 minutes later breech apgar 7/8/10. They are both perfectly healthy and breastfeeding pros. We came home on July 9th and are adjusting very well.
