3Hi all- Our girls decided on a very sudden, early arrival yesterday (they were almost 32 weeks). I was in my driveway getting into my car and my water suddenly broke (gush of water, ruined my shoes, just like in the movies) Our hospital is about 45 minutes away and by the time we got close my contractions were about one minute apart and I was almost ready to push (we even called 911 for a police escort through traffic) I had no time for an epidural and pushed A for three minutes, had a ten minute rest and then B's water broke (exploding all over the nurses and doctors) and came out after a few minutes of pushing. It was a wild experience to say the least!
The girls are doing well- are in the NICU for breathing help and are just starting to get some nutrition but all looks normal for their age. They were born at 3 lbs and 12 oz (Carly) and 3 lbs and 11 oz (Maggie).
I've been pumping, pumping, pumping to try to get my milk to some in and it's so frustrating. Some pumps I get barely anything and some pumps I get maybe a 1/2 ounce total. Everything I'm reading and being told is that this is normal and not to worry but I was wondering what other MoM's experiences are regarding when their milk came in for NICU babies, etc. It's so different from my full term singleton who I could just put to breast from the moment she was born....
