So yesterday I was having some cntrx starting around 6ish, but not regular in length or intensity. Finally went to bed figuring nothing was going to happen. Got up a few times to use the bathroom. Nate came to bed at midnight and I got back in bed and suddenly Isaac dropped hard and fast and painfully. I got back up and ate some cereal and timed a few cntrx before deciding to hop in the tub to see what happened. While the water was running, around 12:45, I started thinking that maybe a bath wasn't a good idea. I got in anyway and after just a few cntrx I started calling for Nate to get up. About 1 he got up and I told him to call my dad to come stay with the boys cuz we needed to head to the hospital. By 1:15 I called my neighbor to come stay until my dad got there cuz we really needed to go. I was having cntrx every 2 mins very hard. We left at 1:30. My water broke on the way and I was having intense cntrx every 1-2 mins that I started feeling the need to push with. Got to the hospital around 2 and they checked me and I was fully dilated so they got me back to the OR and I started pushing pretty soon, no time for the epidural I'd been planning on lol. So extremely painful and Isaac's shoulders got stuck so they had 3 or so people pushing and moving me in weird ways, yeouch. Isaac came out at 2:21 and after a little rest Caleb was born at 2:36 with help with the vacuum cuz his heartrate was dropping. Seriously so painful to have to go through two births in 15 mins. Got back to a room around 3 and they brought me the boys about 3:30. Poor Isaac's face is so bruised from his fast descent. Calebs nursing great already, Isaac takes a bit more work. We are all doing well. I'm GBS+ and since I didn't make it in time for abx they'll probably want us to stay a few days to monitor the babies.

 

Isaac- 7lb 9oz 18.5"

Caleb- 7lb 1oz 20.5"
