So last night the crampy contractions got really rhythmic and kept me up all night. Picked at 6am and the went from 10min to every 5

After talking over a few things we decided to be at the hospital and when we got there at 8ish I was at 7cm!

So here i sit, doing relatively well with the hospital "stuff"

Think good thoughts, check back in when we have babies and stuff.

Hugs everyone!!!!!!!!!!






UPDATE: SHORT VERSION OF BIRTH STORY



I'll write more when I'm home and at a full computer and have look at all the charts.
My daughter was born Dec27th at 6:31am and was 5lb 3.2 oz followed by my Son at 6:44am weighing in at 5pm 10oz both are doing amazing and are just a perfect as perfect can be.
labor was a roller coaster that included 8 hours of nearly howling at the moon at home followed by 20 hours of stalled exhaustion at the hospital, ended by the choice to use some pit, and epi that was put in, turned on and turned back off after it let me take a nap. Ending with a amazing 30 minutes top, but more like 2 8min segments of pushing and wow I am a mother of two!!!!!!!!!!

I'm still being treated for the high blood pressure and that keeping me here in the hospital other than that everyone is great!

Update 12/29, we all got o came home and are doing great!

So they put me on mag for high blood pressure ( where did that come from?) and I'm pretty stalled. Doing whatever I can to get things rolling again, can't believe I went from 8 hours of so strong I could barely believe it, to 12 hours of shit I can sleep thru!

Finally let them break my water after I had a good nap. Now I'm going to go bounce on a ball, c- ya later
