I've been waiting to post until I have time to write out a birth story, and that looks unlikely to happen anytime soon, so I thought I should at least make the announcement!
They were born Tuesday night (soon after I posted in the 41+ thread ). Eleanor Florence and Sylvia Ruth, 7 lbs 7 oz and 7 lbs 10 oz. Sylvia (baby B) was starting to show signs of placenta aging (decels on her NST strip) on Tuesday morning, so we went home for lunch and went straight back to the hospital to have my water broken. It didn't take anything more than that to get going. It was an INTENSE labor and birth, Eleanor was posterior, but my doctor was able to manually turn her, and Sylvia had to be rotated internally as well (she was transverse and we were expecting this). Sylvia started showing signs of distress (we think her placenta detached early) and she got a little vacuum assist along with pitocin to rush her out. But both came out with almost perfect apgars and nursed well from the start. They're doing great. I'm still feeling beat up, but we actually got over 6 hours of sleep last night (not all in one block of course), which is the best feeling in the world right now.
