Shane and Mitchell arrived 9-27-06 at 35 weeks 2 days.
I had gone to labor and delivery to see my OB b/c she wanted to monitor my high blood pressure. She had told me that if it did not go down thatthey would induce. I was so excited at the idea of possible inductiion just because I wanted this pregnancy to be over with. But of course once at the hospital my swelling was gone and my blood pressure was at the bestit has ever been. The doc continued to monitor me and stated that she was going to send me home and wait another week to induce. I was bummed. But then she told me she wanted to do a sono b/c i hadn't had one in a couple of weeks and she wanted to check the position of the babies. So onto sono we went. During the sono I started to get nauseaus and once they sat me up I started to throw up. Then I felt wet. I told the nurse either I peed myself or my water just broke. After several tests to see wether it was my water or not (I knew it was because I starte dhaving bad contractions) they finally decideed that my water had broke but not completely do that broke the rest of it and off into full labor I went. I had an epidural but it slowed down the contractions so I was also given Proticin which really sped up the labor. Shane was born vaginally at 5 lb 13oz(after only 3 pushes) and Mitchall was born via emergency c-section (he turned after Shane was born and started coming out feet first) at 4lb 13oz(I was put under for the emergency c-section, so its all a little blurry after there). Shane had a perfect bill of health and Mitchell spent 6 days in the NICU due to low blood sugar as a result of my GD. But all considering all the things that could have been wrong with them being born 5 weeks early I was klucky to only have one with low blood sugar. BOth boys are home and doing great. Lack of sleep sucks but is way worth it just knowing I have two wonderful boys. Wishing all you ladies the best of luck and hopefully easier labors then I had!
