Connor and Seamus are here! (cross posted in my DDC)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all.

Connor Ambrose and Seamus Antioch were born October 13the (I was 35 weeks to the day) at 8:08 and 8:13 respectively.

Connor weighs 5pounds 5 ounces and is 18 1/2inch long.
Seamus is 3 pounds 9 ounces and 16 1/4 inch long.

Both boys are doing well but Connor is fairing much better than his brother so far. Seamus was at first doing well with just an oxygen tent but had a set back and now is receiving medication to lubricate his lungs and direct oxygen. He is sooo tiny. You spend time with Connor and think "wow what a tiny little baby" but then go over a couple of lines to be with Seamus and suddenly Connor looks HUGE compared to his brother.

I'm doing great which I guess is good but I kind of wish I was having some sort of problem so that my dr's could find a reason to keep me in the hospital longer. Still not sure how we are going to maneuver all of that especial since it looks like Connor will be coming home before Seamus and the hospital is 2 hours from home.

Oh, and the birth story! I woke up Monday morning at around 4:30 a.m. with a constant pain in my upper middle abdomen and went on to the hospital afraid I might be experiencing placental problem. They checked me and I was dilated to 3 and effaced 80%. At some point I was transferred to a larger hospital with a NICU and started on steroids and meds every 3 hours to stop labor. On the 13th I woke up at 7:30 a.m. feeling like I needed to pee sat forever and figured false alarms stood up and my water broke! At 8:08 my first twin arrived and 3 minutes later his brother came to join us.

Pumping is going well and we are hoping to put Connor to the breast tomorrow. Speaking of which am getting off of here and going to pump again. Will post as I get a chance. Good luck to all of you as you continue down your pregnancies.

Congratulations, mama!! I know you've had a bit of a scary time and it sounds like the roller coaster ride isn't quite over yet, but I just wanted to say good luck!

Thank you all

We seem to have a fairly long road ahead of us but I just have to trust and have faith that everything will turn out just as it should be nothing more and nothing less. I'm learning fast that stressing out is going to help no one, my babies included. But it is hard not to some times.
