Update: Hello, it’s been quite a while and i thought i should inform you of things.
First things first. We got kicked out of the place we were staying.(i don’t know if i mentioned any of that) The woman went completely ballistic on us for no reason and wanted us out right then. Mind you i was like 36 weeks pregnant at the time. We were allowed to stay for the weekend, which was good, but throughout the whole time she kept calling my hubby and complaining and yelling and even threatening.
Thankfully, a friend let us stay at her house for a couple weeks. By sheer miracle, we were able to find a duplex that was reasonably priced and had a great move in special. So while that was getting available, we stayed with her who very generously bought a whole bunch of stuff for us. Cribs, clothes, etc..
Meanwhile, i felt better about my pregnancy and stuff; well, really i didn’t. I just told myself i did. The doctors were still pushing for the third of February, and i gave in out of exhaustion and whatever, but the whole time my insides were SCREAMING at me. Every fiber of my being told me this was not right, that they were not meant to be born yet, they were not ready.
So next time i saw my OB i stood my ground and told him no. I made them wait a week, until the ninth. But even though i felt better about it, i even now still feel it was too early. i feel my babies and me were cheated, wronged. And of course the doctor got pissy and insisted that he put a note in my file that said if anything went wrong he was not responsible. Apparently he was suppose to have us sign something to that effect, but he either forgot or it was fraudulent on his part.
Also, i found out that there are doctors out there that are pushing women to have babies earlier than necessary, not because of any medical reason, but for the doctors own reasons. Also, because of this there are more c-sections being done. And i feel this is why my doctor was pushing for the third.
So, i had my babies on the ninth of February. Healthy, perfect baby boys. Joshua was 4 pounds 5 ounces and 16.5 inches long, and Jesse was 4 pounds 14 ounces and 18 inches long. Tears streamed down when i first heard Joshua cry….it was a defining moment, a realization of a dream i’ve had so long.
I was the only one that had twins that day, so nurses were always stopping in to see. We were famous for a couple days there. All the nurses asked me why they were born so early after having found out i was 37 and a half weeks pregnant. I said i had no idea. These babies were perfect, just a little lacking in weight.
They will be six weeks this Thursday. I can’t believe these two beautiful creatures came from me. They are so precious, i don’t even have words. Everything is good.
