I posted on Facebook a few days ago but forgot to post it here. I’m sorry.
The twins have arrived!!!! Sorry about the delayed post...I have terrible internet in the hospital.
I was scheduled c-section vs induction for the twins yesterday 10/25. When we arrived to L&D at 5am they did an ultrasound that showed baby A was breech so they took me for the c-section.
At 8:33 baby A was born (team green turned blue) and at 8:35 baby B was born (team green turned pink). Both babies weighed 5lbs 6oz and were 17in long. We settled on names today: Kaiden Esau and Zara Lynn.
Breast feeding has gone pretty well so far which is a relief considering I was preterm. However, Zara hasn’t been maintaining her glucose levels so she has to have formula supplementation for the extra sugar and constant heal sticks; if she’s not doing better by tomorrow she’ll be moved to the NICU. Fingers crossed that tonight goes well.
As for the c-section...I just can’t fathom why people elect to do these without a medical reason. They are kind of terrifying and the recovery is painful. Thank goodness my husband is staying with me in the hospital....he is on diaper and swaddling duty.
