They're here!

Thursday was a big day for us! We had an appointment that morning with our specialist for an ultrasound. Dr. Brough had said on Tuesday that maybe Dr. Rineheart would think it was time for the babies to come out. I was hoping that would be the case so I packed my bag and took it with me to the appointment, not really thinking that I would stay and have the babies, but you gotta have a little faith! Their growth had leveled off and the fluid in Matthew's sack looked a little low so both Dr.'s agreed it was time to get them out! I was shocked. I went down to labor & delivery and they got me admitted and Jim ran Thomas home. Brandy came over to our house to watch Thomas until my mom could get there. Dr. Brough broke my water around 2 and not much happened at first. I started getting a few contractions around 3 and got my epidural around 4:00 pm. I think i was dilated to a 4 or 5 then. At 5:00 my nurse was having a hard time keeping the monitor for Kaylee's heart in place and decided to check me. I was ready to have those babies. She ran to get Dr. Brough. They wheeled me into the O.R. All twin deliveries happen in the O.R. because the chance of needing a C-section are very high. I think there were about 10-12 people in there, it was crazy! They got me on the table and I pushed 5 or 6 times and Kaylee popped out and screamed right away. It was amazing! Then I had to push for Matthew. His heart rate dropped and he wasn't coming out so they did a c-section with a vertical cut because they had to get him out so quickly. It was very scary, but they got him out quickly and he cried about a minute after they got him out. We got to hold him and see him for a few minutes then they took him up to the nursery to monitor him.

Beautiful! And you look great, too, Marji! I would look like I got ran over by a truck. Matthew looks so much like Thomas! And Kaylee looks like a sweet, delicate little girl.
