Ohh what a night!! I had Allison Rose and Ethan Jeffrey last night at 11:43 and 11:44.
Everything was a-ok, I had received one steroid shot 9 hours prior. It was 10:30 and they come in and check with doppler before bed. Ethan was all over the place, heart wise. They plugged me into the NST machine and he was having dcels. Apparently the little guy got the cord stuck around his belly and it must have pulled tight. So off I went in a panic of crazy to c-section. Super overwhelming, the c-section wasn't horrid, just like a flight and fright panic attack. I was shaking like crazy as they got my IV in, and my oxygen dropped to 88. They wheeled me back after I called my husband and mom (who were an hour away!!). Got the spinal in, wasn't horrible but sucked pretty bad!
I was alone in c-section (luckily my next in line doctor was on that night ). I said to him Please make sure me and babies are good and he held my hand and told me he would take care of me. The whole team of 20 something people did amazing work. My c-section was "uneventful" with minimum blood loss and a clean cut. Apparently my belly went down well too!!
Ethan came out first (our trouble maker!) weighing in at 4lb7oz!!! He was estimated at 4lbs earlier in the day. So he is not even IUGR. Miss Allison came out weighing 3lb4oz!!! So tiny but she was estimated at 3lb 1oz. Both babes are doing well! Got one steroid shot in so it may have helped a little. Our son had some trouble breathing and taken off C-pap and put on breathing tube, he had another steroid shot and stabilized. Allison is on C-pap and doing very well! I got to touch her and she cried and then calmed down.
I am planning on pumping today to see if my supply will get here for them! I will post pics sometime soon when I can show you their sweet faces!! My husband was in shock btw!! but he is very proud of his lil peanuts!! Please keep my peanuts in your prayers that they continue to do well!! <: I hope I can become an active poster on this board and learn a lot from everyone who has been there and done that!!
