They're here! (Birth story)
Mon, 02-11-2013 - 8:49am

The twins are here and we are so in love! We were scheduled to have a c section on 2/14, but last Sunday I started swelling. I called the OB on Wednesday bc my blood pressure was getting high. She said to come on in just to check protein in urine. I went in with my MIL and they shower 2+ protein. My OB said either we go in and take them that night or I would have to be admitted and watched. We opted to take them as I was one day shy of 36 weeks! i was terrified! The c section went fine but was pretty scary for me! Reegan was born first at 5lbs and Henry second at 5lbs, 3 oz! They got to stay with us a few hours then off to special care bc their temps were a little low. My BP went crazy and I ended up on Magnesium for a day and couldn't visit them that full day! Its now Monday and we should be going home today!
