twins have arrived
« on: June 20, 2011 at 01:14 PM »
The boys have joined us on June 18th. My water broke on Friday night our plan was to have them naturally, but once I made it to 9 1/2 cm I stopped dilating after 5 hours of being at 9 1/2 docs opted for c section. They had a hard time delivering baby a (manuel) due to him being so low in the pelvic he was laying sideways so that is why I wasn't dilating anymore. He got a little bruised up from all the tugging and pulling. He is under the lights they believe the bruising caused it he weighed 5lbs 9oz 18 and a quarter. Baby b jacobo was born s minute after and is doing great he weighs 5lbs 14oz and 19 in half inches long. They are thinking Manuel will be off the lights tomorrow.
