Well my babies decided they wanted to come a little early. I was 1 day shy of being 29 weeks but both babies are doing great. My water broke at 2 am on Thursday as I was getting up to go to the bathroom. So we went to the hopsital and I was already dilated 1-2cm and 100% effaced. So they gave me a steriod shot to help mature the babies lungs and magnesium to try and slow the labor down. By 10 am the contractions were 5 min apart but they were lasting longer and were more intense. So they decided to check me and I was 5cm!! My Dr. said we need to go have these babies now because Nicholas was breech and Natalie was transverse.
So at 10:27 AM on 9-7-06
Nicholas Douglas was born weighing 2lb 4 oz.
At 10:28 AM on 9-7-06
Natalie Helen was born weighing 2lb 2 oz.
They both were taken to the NICU and will remain there until they are strong enough to come home. They both are off thier vents and are breathing on thier own just like me and you. Nicholas is already 2lb 9oz and Natalie was up to 2lb 4oz. I have been able to hold Nicholas but not Natalie. I talked to her nurse today and I think today I will get to hold her for the first time. Nicholas was moved to Phase 2 in the NICU and now is basically considered a feeder and a grower. Natalie is just a little behind him and she is just so much smaller too. In time she will be joining her brother.
So please keep us in your thoughts and prayers it would be greatly appreciated!!
