~Delivery Day~

June 2, 2011

Dr finally came into the triage room and explained that with my pain and the high fetal heart rates, he was concerned about a possible placental abruption or deterioration.  He explained the he thought delivery was the safest for both me and the babies at this point.  We called our family and waited patiently until my morning pancakes had digested.  We arrived at the hospital around 10, and they nurses started to prep me for surgery around 3. 

Jesse and I were both very nervous about the babies and the possible problems that we might face with them being born early.  I was wheeled back to the operating room at 3:30.  The spinal was administered, but from the very start, I felt like it wasn't working like it should.  It took 24 minutes for the spinal to take effect, and I was still very hesitant about feeling more than I felt with Cayden's delivery.  The anesthesiologist was certain it had taken effect and surgery was started.  I could feel A LOT of pressure and pulling.  I could also feel my fingers moving around inside me ( TO MUCH FEELING FOR ME.)  I started to panic just a little, but I kept telling myself that I was going to deal with it, because seeing my babies was much more important to me. 

Brock Adam was born first at 4:13pm weighing in at 5 # 20z and 18 1/4in.  He started crying right away.  Lynlee Grace was born at 4:14 weighing 4# 14oz and 18 3/4 in.   She also cried right away.  I was able to see them both...and I don't remember much after that.  I started to really feel more of the surgery, so the anesthesiologist put me out with some really good nerve medicine, and I woke up in recovery shortly after the surgery was over.

Both babies were taken to NICU for observation.  I was able to go right over and see them, and they were absolutely precious.  The NICU observation turned into a stay...so I will start a NICU Journal to document their progress.
