Its Birthday Time!!!!!

I am going to use this post from time to time to update everyone (all 4 of you) who read the blog.

5:30 - Woke Up and she got to take a shower.
6:30 - Doctor does and ultrasound, both babies are in the same position, he checks her cervix measuring at 2 centimeters and breaks her water
6:45 - Starts induction.
8:16 - Contractions are one ever two minutes and her cervix is at a "good 3 centimeters" they are going to give her some pain relief and check back in an hour
9:40 - She is measuring 4 centimeters, the are doing prep work and will soon order the epidural
10:20 - Epidural in, life hopefully is good, smooth sailing from here right :).
11:00 - We are at 6 centimeters, he hopes to be at 8 or 9 in a couple hours.
1:00 - Measuring 8-9 hopefully will start pushing in an hour.
2:50 - Measuring a little over 9 inches, but we are on hold a little because our doctor has just been called to emergency surgery. So he is going to try to get done and still do our delivery. We will keep you posted, but it might be a little delayed now.
4:07 - Allyson is ready to start pushing and the doctor will be arriving in the room in a few moments.
4:19 - Allyson is pushing now and they have moved her into the OR. This is a normal precautionary procedure for delivery of twins. She is still planning to deliver naturally.
5:20 - Hannah and Leah McCay both born at 5:18 PM
5:45 - Hannah weighed in at 5lb 7oz and Leah weighed in at 5lb 4oz. Everyone appears happy and healthy. They are in the NICU now, being bathed and attended to.
6:18 - Correction... Hannah was born at 5:13 PM and weighed 5lb 7oz. Leah was born at 5:18 PM and weighed 5lb 5oz.
6:29 - Hannah has a cone head and curly dark hair. Leah has more round head and lighter hair. Leah's arm broke during delivery, but with a little splint, she will be fine in no time.

Stay Tuned.

Just a small note...if there was any reservation about whether we made the right decision about today, Allyson's blood work came back and confirmed preeclampsia.
