The twins were born on 30 June. I went for a routine check up at my doctors and found out that John Jr. was running out of amniotic fluid. I went into hospital on the 29th and was started on pitossin. I opted for an epidural early and dozed on and off through my labour. By 5:30am I was 91/2 cm dilated. The first baby was out within 15 minutes, followed 18 minutes later by the second. I am afraid to tell my birthing story. It was absolutely beautiful! I don't think I pushed for more than 35 minutes. I still can't believe that I managed to push out 2 babies.
I don't think any of this would have been possible had I not exercised and done yoga. Both my babies were head down from 28 weeks of pregnancy. I could not have had this kind of experience without attending your class. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I miss you guys.
Our double blessing has finally arrived.John Lawrence was first to make his grand entrance into the universe, weighing in at 6.08 lbs and 19 3/4 inches in length followed 18 minutes later by his sister, Isabella Grace who weighed in at 6.4 lbs and 19 1/4 inches in length. Mommy, Daddy and babies are all doing fine, Thank GOD!
