The Twins are Here!!!

This isn't the complete story but it's something. We have so many pictures on our phones and camera but only a crappy laptop, so these are the only ones uploaded so far.

Got induced yesterday, September 27th.
Alright, quick. So we came to the hospital at 7. They got things started quickly. Broke my water at 8:30. I wasn't very dilated. Only 2.5. After another hour or something I was dilated to 4.5. Then the next time they checked, I was a TEN! They called the doctor to come over from the other hospital, I was wheeled into the OR and prepped for a C section just in case.

Girl totally flipped on her own and they were both head down ready to come out by the time I started pushing. I only pushed through two contractions, so easy! And boy came out. He looked great, scored 9.9 on his APGAR. She came out 9 minutes later, only pushed through two contractions for her too. It was so easy! I asked the doctor if I tore and he said nope, so I had no stitches whatsoever!!! I couldn't believe it.

Babies went to nursery, we thought they would both be fine, but girl had some breathing issues so they put her on some oxygen and then decided to take her to the NICU. She stayed there overnight but is supposed to come out after 2 more feedings, so in about 5 hours or so.

Girl is Kallie Anne Salmon. Boy is Tyler Kaye Salmon. Tyler was 5 lbs 12 oz 18 inches. Kallie was 6 lbs 9 oz, and I think she was 19 inches or 19.5.

Tyler had a hard time latching yesterday so we used a nipple shield and then he finally ate. They asked me to come to the NICU to nurse Kallie and she latched right away and nursed for 20 minutes, then Tyler latched on his own too. I nursed Tyler in the middle of the night, Kallie used some milk I had pumped (Brandon ran home and got our pump so we didn't have to pay for the hospital one). I fed them both this morning once already. They are nursing great!

We feel so blessed. The labor was seriously from about 8:30 to 11:30 till they were out. So stinking awesome! And I am recovering so well. I'm not bleeding too much and I feel great. All I've taken is some ibuprofen. Can't wait till Kallie can joins us, these poor babies haven't even touched each other outside the womb. I will try to post pictures in my profile in a sec.
