Early Arrival

As I feared my body has decided once again to bring our children into the world too early.

I started having contractions early in the day on Sept 28. After attempts with two shots of terbutaline (Brethine) and an IV with Magnesium sulfate they were unable to stop the oncoming labor. At a little past midnight I had an emergency c-section. Our girls are both about 15″ long and 2.5lbs. They made it a week and one day further than the first two (28 weeks 5 days)

They are doing well so far but this is the beginning of what will be another long NICU journey, and we haven’t even decided on names yet…
