When I found out I was having twins I was overwhelmed with a lot of different emotions. Not excited emotions, but fearful ones. I didn’t ask for this. I was fairly ambivalant about the whole thing for months. But I was determined to have strong healthy babies. I ate protien, protien, and more protien. (Lots of everything else too!!) My total gain was 57 lbs. I gained 48 with my first singleton. At 39 and a half weeks, my girls arrived. I woke up from a nap that afternoon and went to the bathroom. I heard my water break while sitting on the toilet. I knew I was going into labor that night. After sitting on the toilet with mild cramping and pain, I got up to make dinner. My DH told me to go take it easy and relax. Then it got intense. within 15 min I was in intense pain. I told my DH to take our 3 yo next door to grandma and grandpa’s house. My last words to him were THIS IS GETTING REALLY INTENSE. GO AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN. As soon as I heard him leave I felt babys head come down. I was in labor land so I didn’t panic I just used my natural primal instincts and with the craziest noise I ever heard myself make I pushed her out squatting in my bathroom. When she was in my arms I just screamed. I couldn’t believe this just happened. Then I looked at my beautiful baby girl and realized that she was perfect.I held her on my large potruding abdomen until DH got back. He called 911 and got a towel to wrap our baby in. The fire department arrived first. They clamped the cord and just seconds after, I pushed out baby #2. She was a footling breech. Her feet and body came flying out but her head was stuck. With just a few more mighty pushes she was out too. Moriah Rose was first 6lbs 13 oz and then Emilia Autumn was 10 min later. She was 7 lbs. We were all transported to the hospital. Emilia came home with me but Moriah needed 6 days of special care. She had some apnea problems. Today, my girls are 9 months. Happy healthy and strong. I love them with every ounce of my being and would never change them for the world.
