Baby Boys Are Here!
Our hearts have burst into a million tiny pieces. Bryce Loren and Brooks Robert made us a family of 5 on the evening of January 18th. We are so in love with them <3
When we first found out we were expecting twins I knew I wanted a doctor that specialized in high risk pregnancy because I had convinced myself that at some point along the way something bad was going to happen. I met with a couple doctors all of which were disappointing. One doctor was a major downer about my twin pregnancy and there was NO WAY I was going to put my trust in her so I text a friend who had had multiple high-risk pregnancies and asked her advice. She directed me to Dr. Wayne Young. My first appointment with him was at 18 weeks. I felt very confident in his experience and knew he was the right doctor for me and this pregnancy. At that appointment we found out that both babies would be boys-OH BOY OH BOY!! He agreed to let me deliver vaginally but insisted on an epidural just in case…I wasn’t stoked about the epidural but agreed.
Fast-forward 20 weeks>>
I went in for my routine appointment which seemed to be happening about every day (2 NST per week and all the growth ultrasounds and my regular OB appointments) My doctor was concerned because my labs came back with signs of preeclampsia. I had additional tests done that same day which came back all clear but the risk of becoming preeclamptic was high. My doctor was heading out of town for a few days so we decided to be induced before he left in two days.
The morning of my induction>>
I rolled out of bed exhausted after watching the clock all night and anticipating what fun the next day would bring to the rest of our lives. Being induced wasn’t how I pictured having the babies so that day was definitely not what I had imagined. I came into the hospital, checked in, survived the IV( #2 biggest fear), started Pitocin, got an epidural (#1 biggest fear), took some naps between all my ‘progress’ checks (oh the joys J), broke Baby A’s water, nausea started hitting hard core, barfed a lot J, started pushing in my delivery room then transferred to the OR where I would deliver both (this was precautionary in case they had to do an emergency c section), delivered baby A, still barfing and really nauseous. I remember when Bryce came out I saw his scrawny body passed to the respiratory team and for the first time it hit me that there was actually a tiny human inside my body….then I laid my head back and thought, “oh crap- there is one more in there that I have to push out!!”.
When Baby A (Bryce) came out Baby B (Brooks) flipped back to transverse and was presenting his face with each contraction. The next few minutes were spent trying to get Brooks to drop and rotate his body so he could come out…not gonna share all those gory details. I’ll just say it was pretty involved and quite invasive:/.
Brooks then made his way into the world and after a little help from the respiratory team he was breathing like a champ. Christian and I got to hold them both for a little bit. They were so precious and I was still wrapping my head around the fact that we had three kids.
We were so grateful that the boys were big and healthy and able to come home with us.
