Birth story- I got to the hospital Monday morning (may12) for upper abdominal pain, we did labs and I was diagnosed with mild pre eclampsia. My dr came to talk to me about my options, he checked my cervix and it was 2cm and 50% effaced. My dr felt that it was in everyone’s best interest to deliver the girls. I was given pitocin at 4:45pm and checked at 6:30pm I had progressed to 3cm and my dr broke Arijana’s water.i didnt make<br />Much progress by 9pm so we waited. My back labor started really getting uncomfortable so i got an epidural. I was checked at 11:30 pm and I was 4cm. We decided to change my position and use a peanut ball between my legs. Only an hour later At 12:30am<br />I got uncomfortable and called my nurse in, I wanted to switch positions as well as tell her I had the feeling I needed to poop. She decided to check me and I was 9.5cm. By then my epidural wore off and i could feel my contractions. The nurse could see her head. She called my Dr and he told her while we waited for him to get there to practice push since they were my first babies and I apparently was really good at it because after a two practice pushes ,she said stop,because If i kept it up she would be delivering Arijana. It was very interesting to have contractions and not push. I had to breath through it and focus on keeping her in. My Dr. got there about 15 minutes later .They wheeled me into the OR since they deliver twins in their in case of needing to have an emergency csection. I lifted myself up and moved to the bed, and all the nurses were like how can you feel your legs .. you have an epiural. i tolf them it wore off and I was completely mobile. On my next contraction I pushed twice and Arijana was out , I was teary eyed and in awe of the baby I just pushed out. They did a quick ultrasound to see where Isabella was positioned. He broke Isabella’s water and delivered her breech with 2 pushes. I laid their shocked I just had two babies vaginally in a very short time period. I was able to see them a few minutes before they took them to the nicu as a precaution to monitor them to see if they needed to stay longer. I got wheeled back into the labor room where my mom was and she was shocked at how fast it happens. I told Haris to go be with the babies. My<br />Mom and I cried at the pictures my husband was sending me. I had a picture perfect delivery that active labor only lasted 4 hours. I am so lucky and fortunate it went so well and the girls are healthy. Arijana weighs 4lbs10oz and Isabella weighs 4lbs3oz. They needed to stay in the Nicu for 18 days and it was very hard to leave them, but theyre now home with us and although Im barely getting any sleep my heart is soo full with these two beautiful & amazing daughters of ours. I can wait to watch them grow.
