My Sweet Babies Are Finally Here!

Well I didn't have to be induced! lol My water burst at 1:30am last sat. night. I was not having any regular contractions though. I just *knew* I'd go into labor that night. I went out to dinner with my mom and sisters and when I got home I was nesting like a mad woman. I layed down for bed and reread my child birth preperation book for labor. Sure enough, 5 minutes after I turned the lights off, I heard a *pop*. I got up slowly and felt some leaking and luckily, I had enough time to make it to my bathroom before my water just gushed everywhere!! I was only 2 cm dialted when I got to the hospital. To make a long story short, I ended up having an unexpected C-section cuz the babies heart rates were flat so they were showing signs of stress from labor. I was only 3 cm dialted at this point and doctor didn't think we should continue any further. So I said, ok, C-section it is. So much for a natural vaginal delivery! haha So on Sunday at 12:24pm Baby girl was born at 5lbs 18 inches and baby boy was 5lbs 15oz 19 inches. Both got a 9 on their apgar scores!!! I can't believe how tiny they are. I am absolutely in love with them. The 4 days in the hospital were exhausting cuz i got no sleep whatsoever. Someone bugging you every 5 minutes for one thing or another. Do you really need to take my blood pressure at 4am?? Sheesh!! We got home thursday and things are going great. I'm having so much fun. It's like all i want to do is sit and stare at them! I'll post pix as soon as I get them downloaded. !!

Side note for the newbies.... I made it 37 weeks 2 days, and gained about 40 lbs. I've already lost 25 lbs and i'm sure the other 15lbs are my huge engorged boobies! lol

Congrats....

I had mine at 37.1 days on Dec 1.

Not getting much sleep are you?

I saw your post on the breastfeeding borad. I had a similar ?. I am feeding them every hour which is totally draining. Hope you're getting some sleep.
