Twins are here!
« on: June 19, 2011 at 07:22 AM »
Hello everyone!  ;D
Friday I delivered (induced) two healthy boys, Beckett & Noah. Beckett was born at 10:56 am, weighed 7lbs, 20" long, 9-10 apgars and Noah was born 11:30am 6lbs5oz, 20" long, 8-9 apgars.
I went really fast, in about 2.5hrs and barely had time for an epidural. I had only been hurting an hour when my nurse talked me into an epidural (she had a premonition I was going to go fast), I started out being 3-4cm and was 4cm after an hour and thought it was too soon to get the epidural. I am SO glad I did because after the epidural, I went from 5cm to 10cm in about 45 minutes. Beckett came out in 2-3 pushes, but Noah was a struggle. He was transverse/sideways & then face-up so he took a lot of manipulation to turn him and get him in the right position. He was in distress during all that moving, about 15-20 minutes of low heartrate. As much manipulation as it took, I would have ended up in surgery with a cesarean for him if I hadn't had the epidural to relax me & make all that painless. Listen to your nurses, sometimes they know! Thank God!!!!  :D

We're still in the hospital, unfortunately Beckett is losing weight and won't nurse or latch even onto a bottle. Please keep us in your prayers as we struggle to make him eat. I would like to go home today as an intact family!  :-\

Thanks for all the prayer, thoughts & support! I will post pics as soon as I get home.

Due date: 7/7/2011
Twins (we're not finding out the sexes!)
5th pregnancy (5yrs old-put on bedrest with her @ 35wks for PIH)
3 previous losses
Put on bedrest this pregnancy @ 17weeks for Cervical shortening & preterm labor
Thanking God for each day I'm given with my twins!

Congratulations!!!  I've been thinking about all of you and wondering how things went and what the sexes were.  I never would have guessed two boys, though!  Congrsatulations!

You were in my thoughts and prayers on Friday, and will continue to be.  Thank you for all of your encouraging posts to all of us.  You are very deserving of two healthy boys and a mobile lifestyle! :). Enjoy it!

I know you are a very busy mommy now, but don't forget to post pics of those beautiful babies!!!  Congratulations!!!!

Wow! Congratulations!!!
Though I am no longer pregnant, I keep checking back to see how everyone's doing, and today I hear great news from you.
You should be very proud of youself - on bedrest since 17 weeks and here you are now with the bundles of joy in your arms
I am sure you have given hope and inspiration to a lot of ladies on this forum.

Well, I wish you and your family all the best. I hope Beckett learns to latch soon. Keep trying.

Wonderful that your babies are here! Congratulations to you and family!!  I work with essential oil of grapefruit to assist clients to stimulate their appetite, if you are unable to get this in your neighborhood, then purchase a grapefruit and allow baby to inhale the aroma to help to stimulate his appetite.  Please let me know how this works out and about you and family in general.
