Just got a text from Julie/Imprint to say that they confirmed at 1pm that her waters did break at 6am this morning. She is at the hospital and still waiting for labor to start on its own. She is really hoping to avoid pitocin, but the contractions will need to start soon.

 

Will update as soon as I have more news.

 

GL Julie, so excited to see these babies arrive safe and sound.

 

Update at 6:45 from Julie by text

 

Got another text from Julie to say they are about to start pitocin.

 

Another text from Julie at 3:30am

 

Text says "Going to OR to deliver, shortly. Little is expected, but still some good things, and still really glad of my choice of o.b. Doing okay. - Julie"

 

As soon as I know more I'll be sure to update you all on here.

Oh Imprint, SO much love to you mama.  I hope hope hope that labor starts on it's own here very soon, but if not, it WILL be okay!  You are strong and capable.  Part of our strength as mothers is not our ability to stick to the plan, but our ability to roll with things and come out on top when the plan (inevitably) goes so differently than we'd prefer.  Your calm, patience, and caring have been obvious to all us ladies on the board, and I think no matter what happens today, you'll handle this birth with that same beautiful attitude.  Much love to you mama, and happy birthing vibes!!!

Imprint, good labor vibes to you! goodvibes.gif goodvibes.gif goodvibes.gif

 

Even if the pitocin is not the way you planned to go, it doesn't make you less of a mother if you need it to go into labor or give birth. You'll still be a great mom!

My whole update just vanished.... so I'll re-write it, later.  - With photos, which I don't have easily available, now!  smile.gif

 

My phone died many hours ago, and I was not able to charge it, so I couldn't update Lyn.  (Using a computer, up till now?  Unthinkable!)

 

Our twins arrived at 4:40 and 4:46, this morning, respectively.  They're thriving, beautiful to my eyes, with lots of dark hair and amazingly good latches!  Oliver Ames weighed 5 lb., 15 oz.; Lydia Elena, 6 lb., 3 oz.

 

I lost a lot of blood, but am finally stable and about to be released from recovery.  My blood pressures seem to be coming down to something high but not terrifying.  Much did not go as planned, yet I feel like an amazing amount of what I really cared about was salvaged, given the circumstances.  More on all of that, later - but we're a very happy, very sleepy family of four, now.  And my husband seems so proud.

 

Thank you, all of you, for your good wishes.  Michelle, and those who echoed her: I specially and deeply appreciate the wisdom and kindness of your comments.  

 

Wishing all of you well, with big hugs....  grouphug.gif
