It actually upsets me that I've missed so much on this board the past few days! But I've been totally out of it and unable to keep up with anything.
I was admitted into the hospital for baby A breaking her water last Saturday, and I was put on hospital bed rest until July 29th, 34 weeks.
Welllllll, seems like baby A had a mind of her own and decided to put her momma into labor on her time.
I was in labor for over 24 hours which was torture! All I can say is thank god for the epidural! I was dilating about a centimeter every three to four hours until they chose to give me pitocin to speed things up.
After hours of anticipation, I was able to finally push both babies out at 2:13 and 2:40 AM!
Isabelle Grace was first weighing in at 3 lbs 10 oz, and Isaac Anthony came soon after weighing in at 4 lbs 2 oz.
They are small babies, but have not needed any help breathing on their own, and they even have great sucking reflexes so far. In less than a day, they were transferred from the level 3 to level 2 NICU.
I love seeing them do so great! I love every moment I get to spend with them and all I hope is that they keep progressing so I can take them home sooner than later!
I might have to jump over to the July board to see how things are there, but I don't think they'll compare to you September ladies!
And I also want to say thank you, thank you, thank you for all your thoughts and prayers! For having these babies early, everything is absolutely great!!!
