Well I thought I would share my delivery story with everyone. 

9:15 Friday morning I went to the doc because Tuesday I was 80% 2cm  So he asks how I am doing and I had to tell him that I thought it was the time.  So he checks and I am 100% 3cm so he send me downstairs for labor.

So I head downstairs and I got to my car to get my bottle of water and call my hubby.  So I get in triage and change clothes and Justin comes right before I get the IV. The next thing we know Allison's heart rate didn't bounce back from a contraction like it should.  So they come and turn me on my side and call Dr Baiey and he tells them to prep me cause we were doing c-section in 15min. 

Needless to say this just comes as a huge shock!   We were not expecting that to happen at all!  But that how it worked.  At 11:56 Addison arrived weighing 3.14lbs being 16 3/4 inches long and at 11:57 Allison arrives weighing 2.14lbs and is 15inches long.They had apgar scores of 8 and 9 so that was great!  They were taken up to the NICU where Justin then started letting familly in the room to see theml.

8 hours later I got out of bed and went up there to see them.  They are both completly healthy.  They just want to put a little weight on and feed from a bottle.  But they are already sucking on their pacifiers.  Justin and I are very excited about the.  They are guessing the girls will be in the NICU for a week and then they will be feeding well enough to go home!  YEAH  I am not sure if I would say that the c-section would be worth it.  I am fairly sore and that isn't something I would recommend requesting to have.  But I guess in all reality is will be nice to be closer to healed when the girls get home. 

This has been a really surprising last couple of days but the girls make it worth it.  It will be even better when the whole family is at home!
