My Twin Girls are Here!
« on: March 12, 2012 at 08:03 PM »
Caroline Grace (5lbs 8oz) and Breanna Renee (4lbs 7oz) born on March 5, 2012. I was put on bed rest at 26 weeks due to a shortening cervix. I spent 3 weeks of it in the hospital. The day I was released off bed rest (36 weeks & 5days) I went into labor. Woke up at 2:30 to a strong contraction, stood up, and my water broke! When we arrived at the hospital my cervix was 4cm. The epidural was in and as soon as my doctor came on call, baby A's heart rate dropped completely off the monitor. All I remember was people rushing into the room, being wheeled out, and next thing I know I'm on an operating table having a c-section. It all happened so fast! My doctor came on call at 7:30 and they were born at 7:55&7:56. They discovered that Baby A's placenta had begun to abrupt. We were planning on a vaginal delivery and i'm glad we didn't because Baby B's cord was so short that she wouldn't have been able to be delivered vaginally. My doctor went on to say that she may not have even made it. We thank God every day for these precious girls and the doctors that were able to deliver them!

Congrats!!  I was admitted at 26 weeks and stated for three weeks too...and I went into labor with my twins at 36+5!!  funny.  Enjoy...and GET YOUR REST NOW.  My twins are 7 mo now and I wish I'd taken more advantage when I was laid up after the c section....
