Birth Day for the Twins

After I started going to the doctor in June we have had no complications and just regular doctor checkups. Also we had a million ultrasounds but other than that it was a normal pregnancy. I went into labor actually the night before I was going to be induce. Dec. 16th Thurs. but I did not go to the hospital because I was not sure if they were real contractions or not because they were so far apart. So I waiting for my appointment at the hospital the next day. So I went in at 7:30AM and my doctor arrived about an hour later. She checked to see how far a long I was and I was 7 cm dialated. She broke my water for the first twin and then I receive an epidural. It took me till about 2PM before I reached 10cm. They put me in the operating room just in case we would have to do an emergancy c-section. The babies had been in the correct position for me to be able to have them vaginally which is what I was hoping for. So I started pushing. Twin A came came out 10-15 mins of pushing. Twin B then was pushed into a horizontal position. So head was not down nor were the feet. She was laying sideways. So my doctor had to push on my stomach to change her position. She was able to get the head down and so I was able to push Twin B out but it took about 30 mins of pushing. But they both came out no problems Twin A was 6 lbs 2 oz and Twin B 6 lbs 4 oz. They are both female. The parents named them Christina and Katie. They just had flown in from California the day before. They were thrilled and happy about the new twins. I am excited that I was able to give the twins a great start in life. I was able to hold them for 39 weeks and they were a wonderful weight for twins. They were only in the hospital for 2 days same as I was. Good luck parents you are going to have your hands full.

Met the doctor

I am seeing a women doctor which is great. I have nothing against boys but I had a choice so why not go with a women. Anyway. We took an ultrasound of the twins. They are both around 1 1/2 inches long which is normal for 10 weeks. One of the twins was moving around so much. It was so funny to see him/her on the screen dancing around. I am so excited. The printed out pictures for me and I forgot to bring them to work so I could scan them in and show you but I will try to bring them tomorrow. Also the doctor is very much for vaginal delivery for twins. Which is great because that is one of my goals. So now we can work together to see if we can make that happen. That is all for now. Also I put on the 3D development of baby depending on the week. Unfortunatly they did not have the ability to show twins :( oh well. Enjoy. Next appointment July 2nd 2010

Searching for a Doctor

My intended parents want me to go to an OB GYN. My last pregancy with my daughter I went to a midwife which I loved. But they want me to have a OB GYN which I think makes sense since we are having twins. I will be delivering in salem, Oregon so I will be looking for one in town. I have heard of several good doctor's here in town. So I am no longer going to the fertility clinic for anything. I just need to get a regular doctor and it will be like a normal pregancy from now on except I will be continuing my Estradiol tablet twice a day and my progesterone until June 19th. 11 days earlier than I thought I was going to do.

Having TWINS

I went into my appointment today. And they placed the ultrasound and there they were 2 sacks. They both had one little baby inside. Each with their own heartbeat. Twin "B" was going 121 hpm and Twin "A" was going 124 hpm. I am sooooo excited. We are around 6 1/2 weeks pregnant and so our 40 weeks of our prenancy would go to Christmas eve but of course twin pregnancies usually go 36-38 weeks so it will be sooner than that. I did not get my "official" due date because I was so excited I left before they could tell me. Oh well. Well it is now time for me to find me a doctor. I want to make sure he/she is very comfortable with delivering twins. I want to try and have the twins with no C section so wish me luck.

Twin "B" is the bottom picture left side in the black sack.

Twin "A" is the top picture on the right in the black sack.

Talking to the nurse

This morning I did not have any sign of blood except for some brown stuff ( old blood ) I was thankful for that. I did not feel any cramping or anything. I called a nurse and she said that it is normal to get some spotting during pregnancy. She said to drink a lot of water and eat more greens. She also said to take it easy this weekend and don't lift anything over 20 lbs. ( My Daughter ) so that was fun trying to do that. She said that we are fine to wait until my next appointment which is May 5th. This coming Wednesday. I am excited. I hope they will be able to reasure me that everything is ok.

Light bleeding

Today after work I went home and I felt like I was starting my period. I went to the bathroom and what do you know there was blood there. It did not seem like a lot of blood and I did not get any more that night but I decided I was going to call the nurse tomorrow. I tried to relax and watch TV. I felt a little cramping so I was kind of sad because I hope nothing was happening to my 2 babies. We will see what the nurse says tomorrow.
