OUR BABIES ARE HERE

Most of you already know that our little girls have arrived.
March 19th I went to my regular fetal assessment stress
monitoring, and during the monitoring, Baby B (Ruby) kept
having heart rate decelerations down to 50 and staying there
for about a minute at a time and then going up really high
to 200 trying to recover. This was the first time in the three
plus weeks I had been in the hospital that either of our
little girls had any decelerations during monitoring.
Lucky for all of us, my specialist happen to be on call that
day and happen to walk into the room when Ruby was
having her first deceleration. He requested I stay on the
monitors longer and when we called him to tell him they
were continuing to happen, he advised to have me brought
over to labour and delivery. Kathy (who was the lady who
did all my monitoring in the morning) was trying REALLY
hard to keep herself calm, and to keep me calm at the same
time.

Over to labour and delivery I went. Got hooked back up to
the monitors.

Congratulations! I'm so glad that all went well and that the babies are doing good. I can't imagine all that you have been through, so I'm glad it's all going to get better from here!

Wow, that entry should've had a "DO NOT READ IF YOU"RE PREGNANT" warning... I bawled through the whole thing.

I am SOOO happy for you guys & so relieved that everything went well. I think there were a lot of faithful prayers said on your behalf & I'm sooo glad it all worked out.

Good luck with everything, hopefully time will pass quickly & you'll have them home with you both.

p.s., I still need your address to send you that homemade thing. And I need to know what colors you're going with (or have gone with) for the girls' room.

Thanks

Congratulations!! Oh I'm so glad to hear that everything went okay. I can't imagine how hard it is to be away from them but they'll be home before you know it! They're adorable and I love their little names.
