Unfortunately I dont have a birth story, Just my prego story I'm gonna tell it anyway.
I went to the er on Sunday am Sept. 1st/03 with serious pains, doc did a preg and UTI test, preg test came back negative, so I had a UTI, with my mother's serious kidney problems I had to go back for a recheck. The day b4 my recheck Ron says that I am over a week late for af. so i got tested and no more UTI, but I am prego :lol:
At 26 weeks I had my first ultrasound and my first ob appointment (was just gonna see my family doc till 36 weeks) This was the day I found out i was having twins - my doc had said that i was measureing bigger than what i should be so he thaught i was further along...there was no worry of multiples at that time so at the u/s i just asked the tech. "there isn't two in there is there? " she responded - I think with tears in her eyes " well, yes" I almost passed out and wanted to kick dh in the side cause the lady put the doppler on my stomach and there were two perfect circles the size of golf balls (their heads) at the bottom of my stomach and he thaught it was one babĂ*e's buttocks. I kept myself together though and on our way to the ob's office called the future grandmothers telling them that they cound add two more to their growing list of grandchildren. We got to the ob and he was excited than he got right down to business, you will have to leave worke right away, i cried...you will most likely have to have a c-section...i cried again. I continued to cry all the way home (1 hr drive) and for two weeks afterwords. I certinally wasn't upset that there were two, I think I was excited but scared. All somebody had to do was look at me and smile and i would burst.
I worked till I was 7 Months prego, and could have worked till the day I delivered but I was soo tired. I spent my days planning/organizing the nursery - closets and EVERYTHING that I had gotten from my two baby showers, people were very generous!!
After 33 weeks there was still no signs of labour, everything was still perfect, I was still going in to visit the ob every week, he didn't understand how I was doing soo well, I was HUGE and his wife (his nurse) said that he talked alot about me at home...hoping I would go into labour when he was on call. He wanted to be there, she also laughed at me everytime I walked in..."OMG your still pregnant! " On April 10th (36 weeks) there were still no signs of labour so it is time to schedule the c/s. I was under the impression that he was going to schedule it for April 12th but he said "nope in 10 days"...I cried yet again...I was in soo much pain the pressure was unreal..but April 20th it was. Went in and the doc put 5 holes in my back trying to get the epi in...Kaitlin was supposed to be born first but when they cut me Kassie stuck her feet out so she was first. Kassie was born at 10:18 weighing 5 lbs 15 oz, Kaitlin born at 10:19 weighing 6 lbs 6 oz. I got to touch their faces and give them kisses, then they left with Ron. Mom was waiting outside the or and said that their eyes were wide open and they were looking around. I had them on a Tuesday and on Saturday am Kassie weighing 5lbs 13oz, Kaitlin weighing 6 lbs 6 oz.
