It was an uneventful evening after the afternoon stress test I had just had. I got my boys in bed, my dh was playing online poker, I took a nice warm bath and got into bed to watch the news! I was watching the preparations for the "rose bowl" parade...as after all MY ALMA MATER was actually playing in the rose bowl!! It was 10:17pm and I felt a sharp pain.....hmmm I laid there....thinking.....who is kicking my bladder?? These dang twins!?!?! At 10:27 exactly 10 minutes later, I had another pain.....NOT a kick in the bladder!
I yelled for dh and rolled out of bed! I managed to get a pair of capri's and a t-shirt on and called my neighbor! I still wasn't sure this was "labor" because it came on so different and so weird?? She had just had a baby a year earlier so I was talking on the phone with her describing my pain.....when I REALIZED....THIS IS IT! I asked her to come over....and then I paced the house and waited....what the hell was taking her so long....she lives RIGHT next door! She got there and apologized that she was so sleepy she had actually gotten dressed instead of walking across the yard in her robe! LOL (but not at the time)
We got in the car and called my daddy.....dh said it was 10:50! He also called my 3 closest friends! We got to the hospital and he stopped at the ER and went and got me a wheel chair! I got into the wheel chair and INSTEAD of him wheeling me in....he went and parked the car and left me sitting outside the damn ER in the wheelchair! I began to push the wheelchair into the ER BY MYSELF....because I could feel something coming out down SOUTH!!!
My dh showed up behind me bags and all....which I immediately told him he could have gotten later...cuz here he is trying to push me and hold a bunch of damn bags! GRR!!!
We got into the ER where the stupid guy says....is she registered? DH says yeah...and I already called upstairs to tell them we were on our way...cuz she is a twin breech delivery and it is suppose to be a c-section! The guy has some lady start wheeling me towards the elevator as DH has to actual "check" me in with the registar! IT was 11:07pm
By the time I got up to the OB floor....only 4 floors in our little redneck hospital....I could not even TALK....my face was beat red....they wanted me to get into a gown and lay down...and they had those monitors ready to put on my 2 babies! YEAH RIGHT!! I barely managed to get my capri's off between contractions....they were ONE on top of the OTHER!! I was screaming in PAIN.....the nurse needed to check me....but my body was clenched so tight I could NOT get my legs to open....my dh and she pryed my legs open to check me and I was an 8 with a bulging bag! Right when she took her hand away the bag BUSTED!!!
She began to scream over the intercom to get anyone and everyone to help her get me to the OR!!!! (twin deliveries are always in the OR in case of complications) As they were wheeling my bed down the hall, I kept saying "its coming out" and they kept saying "blow out your mouth"....I was NOT pushing but I swear my body was pushing on its own!!!
The doc was NOT there, the anesthesiologist was NOT there! ACCKK!!!! PAIN!!!!! LET ME DIE!!!!!
They did NOT let my dh go in to the OR...which they normally would have so I knew this was NOT a good scene!
They get me to the OR and tell me to "ooch" over onto that metal table!!?! What the *#$%? I can't ooch! I am in too much pain and a baby is hanging out of me!?!? Somehow I managed to get onto that tiny metal OR table and next thing I saw was the DOC between my legs....I said where is the epidural guy you can't cut me open I am NOT numb....and he said I ain't cutting you open....her butt is half way out and her ankles are up at her ears.....you gotta push her out in ONE push or she could get stuck and we don't want that!! OOH GREAT!!! THIS could possibly be the DD I went through all this trouble for and now she could DIE!?!?
I beared down and pushed and prayed to GOD to let me die if I had too (the pain felt like it) but let the baby live! All of the sudden I felt immense RELIEF! The baby was out.....but no crying?!?! I screamed IS IT ALIVE!?! And from across the room I heard.....yes......it is.....everything is gonna be fine....and then I said....."what is it" and they said "ITS A GIRL"! I laid back and thought....holy cow....Microsort works!?!?
That was at 11:27PM!!!!! Kassidi Joelle was here. My dh finally came in the room...i was asking for him the whole time and the doc said to push again, which I did and at 11:30pm, Kallista Jean was here! My dh got to cut her cord at least!
So from 10:17pm to 11:27 was my TWIN labor! Even writing this I still can NOT believe it all happened the way it did! I have to have my dh remind me of things because I was in so much pain I blocked ALOT of it out!!
When dh went out to the waiting room to tell everyone, they had just started the coffee and thought he was coming out while they "prepped" me for the c-section! When he said they are here and they are GIRLS....they FELL OUT!!!
Thank god my daddy wasn't back there while the EXCITMENT was going on.....I am his only blood family and he would NOT have delt well KNOWING what I was going through!!
Everyone came into the room and marveled at the girls....I was so tired I was just in a sense of "melencholy"...not the EUPHORIA....I thought I would be in!
And I was still VERY upset that I did NOT make it to January! Sorry Momma!!! I got to go home on New Years Day, and then the PPD set in....and I hate to say that almost 7 months later....I am still suffering from it.....but it is BETTER!!
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE IN ACHIEVING THEIR GENDER DREAMS!!
