My Birth Story

I am so proud of how my babies were brought into this world.  I was not induced.  They baked for 36 weeks 6 days.  They came into this world so healthy and perfect.  I can’t begin to say how blessed we are for that.

It was 2 in the morning on Friday.  I woke up (probably for the 12th time that night) to use the bathroom.  The moment I got out of bed I could tell my water had broken.

Most women don’t actually have their water break; or at least they don’t know it.  Me?  It was like something out of Coneheads I swear.

I calmly woke up Mr. E. He, in cliché first time dad fashion started panicking. We arrived at the hospital by 0245. Not bad over all!

When we got there, it was determined that baby A was in perfect position, but baby B was still breech. We decided to go ahead with the csection because of that.

At 0903 and 0904 my little boys came screaming into this world. Baby B was only 4.4 pounds, so he had to stay in the special care unit for a day and a half just to prove he could thrive. And he did.

We spent a total of 4 days in the hospital. Everything was just perfect.
