Hi Everyone - my boys were born last Saturday May 11. I was scheduled for a C-section on May 15 but they decided to come a little earlier than planned. I was 36w3d. I guess I was in labor. I had some brown spotting Friday night and Saturday morning but thought it was due to the internal I had at the OB's office on Thursday. Saturday morning my stomach was tight and painful but it was constant so I didn't necessarily think they were labor contractions since they weren't timable. By 9:30 AM I was in a lot of pain and my OB told me to go to L&D. The NST at the hospital showed contractions and my BP was high so OB decided to go ahead and do the C-section. My water didn't break and I hadn't dilated at all. Both babies are healthy. No NICU time. Patrick was 5lb 12 oz and 19 inches long. Andrew weighed 7lb 3oz and 20 inches long. We ended up spending 5 nights in the hospital because my BP stayed higher than my doctors liked. The peds were ready to send the boys home after 3 days. We were all discharged yesterday. First night home was a little rough but the babies have been sleeping all day today so I was able to catch up on some rest.
I'll post a pic when I figure out how to do it.
