Gavin & Paige have ARRIVED!!!

Well, I feel terrible I have not been able to update sooner, but twins are ALOT of work! My last few weeks of my pregnancy I was SO misserable. I got PUPPPS which is a rash that covers your body and itches like CRAZY, its caused by pregnancy and the only cure is to deliver your babies. I was itching 24/7 ALL over. I also got pregnancy induced hypertension. My blood pressure was raising daily along with my swelling. At 35-36 weeks I was going in the hospital abuot every other day for different things. Finally when I was only 2 days from my scheduled c-section date of December 7th I was in the hospital for good, and my doctor delivered me on Sunday December 6th, just one day after my dads 71st birthday, sorry dad I tried...hehe. I did have to have a c-section because stubborn Gavin would not flip from his breech position. My c-section was scheduled for 7:30am. I had a great nights sleep thanks to some ambien and stadol. HOWEVER when I woke up the morning for my c-sec, ANXIETY ATTACKS GALORE. I was crying and boy was I a mess. I was terrified of the surgery and the after pain. I have never had major surgery before and I am a wuss! Oh and did I mention at 37weeks with TWINS I was STILL only dilated to 1cm! I swear they would have stayed in there till 40 weeks if Id a let them! I walked myself down to the Operating room, when I walked in I really freaked. All those sharp instruments all around the room! I was trying to concentrate on my two lil miracles that were about to arrive, but the anxiety was overpowering me. When I sat down to get my spinal the anasthesiologist gave me a lil something to calm me down...and boy did it help. My entire family was waiting outside for their delivery. My sister Lisa and niece Brianna surprised visit me from New York to see the babies and see my dad for his 71st birthday. My mom and dad, my mother in law and father in law, Kaleb, my brother and sister in law and nephews, my bestest friend Tiffany and her mom. I had a great support team! : ) After my spinal and they had me all preped and ready to cut they let Enrique in. I was so glad to see him. What only seemed like a few minutes later I heard this screaching cry and I never heard a sound so sweet. I had never gotten to hear that before. I cried like a baby. Paige Marie was born at 8:18am 20in long and weighing in at 6lbs10oz. Two minutes later I heard another hard cry and it was Gavin Enrique all 5lbs13oz of him, he was 18 3/4in long. I will never forget their first cries as long as I live. The sound of my lil miracles being brought into this world. They brought them to my face one by one I kissed on them and they took them to the nursery along with Enrique. They cleaned them off and checked their apgar scores. They both scored perfect. They were 3 weeks early, so of course there were concerns there...but they were both perfectly healthy. They did not need any oxygen or anything. They were BEAUTFIUL and PERFECT. Paige had a head FULL of black hair, and Gavin had a forhead full of wrinkles. They had not a single similarity between them. Paige was real dark and big, and Gavin was real light and itty bitty. The feeling you get when you are a new mom cannot even be explained. I was OVER joyed. God had been so GOOD. We give God all the praises and all the glory. I had Donna there with me, she was the neonatologist that delivered Elisha. She was GREAT. She would always come in and visit me when I was in the hospital for my NST's or other complications I was having. And she was there to deliver my twins, which made me SO happy. She wasa lot of relief for me with questions and concerns I had. I was petrified of the c-section, and for good reasons. Cause it hurt like HECKKKKKK! My recovery was terrible. Because my belly had gotten so big and stretched I had lots of access skin that hung over my incision, which did not help the healing process. I was buzzing the nurse at every 4hours on the dot for my pain medicine. Our hospital stay started Saturday night and we were released on that following Thursday. Our doctor circumsized Gavin on Tuesday. I was SO sad for him. That really breaks a mommys heart. The first night in the hospital they pretty much slept through the night, we woke them up for feedings. I could not stop staring at them. BUT after that first night, and ever since they wake up about every 3 hours. We had the most amazing nurses and staff at the hospital as usual. While the nurse was going over our discharge papers Enrique was changing Gavin, all of a sudden Enrique screams and jumps 2 feet back, and all I see is a steady stream of pee pee freely shooting into the air, Enrique turns around and his grey shirt now has grafiti all over it. It was SO SO SO funny and let me tell you, funny things are NOT funny after a c-section. I was trying my darndest NOT to laugh, but man was it funny. I was in dire pain. They got us the wheel chairs and I was FINALLY leaving the hospital with my babies. I got to carry them out. All I had known before was the funeral director coming to get them from my room...but not this time. I did deeply miss my Alexis and Elisha. We see alot of Alexis and Elisha in Paige and Gavin. It makes me feel so good I can see my heavenly babies in my earthly babies. Thank you God. Thank you to ALL my friends and family that came to visit and brought gifts during our hospital stay. And thank you to everyone who sent gifts in the mail, that could not be there. It really meant alot to our family. Thank you to everyone who prayed for us, and supported us through these years and even just recently if you've only known us through this pregnancy. God Bless

Update

Well, I had my 34-35 week appointment on Wednesday. I am proud to say I am 1cm dilated and my doctor could feel Paige's head!!! YAY! All has went well and quite uneventful, which is quite unusual for me, but I am so glad. I prayed so hard for an uneventful smooth pregnancy, and God has really showed off! We have finnished moving and are all settled in. Thank you to everyone who helped in moving us and making this as easy as possible for me. I have been on bedrest and out of work for two weeks now, without that I am sure I would have had the twins by now! Just being off my feet has been a huge physical relief, I had no idea that was cuasing so much of my pains. I have definately noticably started to drop alot. I am getting so very excited, so very soon I will be holding my lil Gavin in Paige in my arms, and it will all seem so unreal, much like it does now. I am excited about going into spontaneous labor as I was induced with both Elisha and Alexis, and dont know any different. Next week I am booked with appointments. Monday I have an NST (non-stress test), Tuesday I have a regular OB appointment, Wednesday I have an ultrasound and meet with my high-risk doctor, Thursday is Thanksgiving...gobble gobble, the Friday another NST. WOW! I am wore out just thinking about it. 1 1/2 more days and I will be at my "safe point" of 35 weeks. That is a big milestone, where I should be able to deliver with little to no complications with the twins. I am most certainly anxious to see how much they are weighing in at my ultrasound next Wednesday! Well, that is all the updates for now! Will check in next week!

I'm in the hospital but babies are A-OK

So I went Monday for my NST (non-stress test) and I guess the nurse said I was having some issues I was unaware of lol. The babies did well with their test and are doing great, however mommy seemed to have bp og 148/70...nbot soo good, and the nurse pointed out how there was not supposed to be and fat or puffiness on the top of my feet and front of my legs, and I pointed out to her how I cant see my legs and feet anymore, so then she made me pee in a cup, and explained how my keytones were VERY low, and that I was either starving or dehydrated which I assured her I was neither, I drink between 1 and 2 gallons of water a day, and trust me I eat, so per the doctors orders I had to stay overnnight and they have to collect my pee for 24 hours. So I have my urine sitting on ice in the bathroom at the hospital...too funny. Bloodwork came back good...a few things borderline, but nothing out of the ordinary for a preggo. Praying my pee comes back okay. I do have a feeling when the doctor comes this afternoon bedrest will be in my future... I just gave my job my two week notice before I start my maternity leave, was supposed to refresh train someone to do my job while Im gone, and have a TON of stuff to do to get them ready and be stocked while I'm gone...I am lil stressed about that, I definately do not want to leave them hanging. They have been oh so good to me. I have been through so much these last few years and they have been so understanding and supportive. We will see how that goes. Oh the best part, I had a good friend come up to visit and stay with me last night, she drove me to the hospital for my normal weekly NST, and we were going to go have dinner at Red Lobster and I was gonna show her the nursery etc etc...and I got stuck at the hospital What the HECK! But my mom is the best, and she picked us up Red Lobster to-go and brought it to the hospital, and we still got the dinner we were looking so forward too HEHE. And she sated and visited till late, stayed at my parents, then came back to the hospital in the morning to visit...so we still had a good visit, hadnt seen her in almost a year! Thanks Ashlee for being so supportive!
I gotta keep these two baking for at least another 2 1/2 weeks so please pray that they bake a lil longer. Thanks for all your support. GOD Bless!

Dr. Appointments week of October 26th

My doctor appointments last week went very well.!. I had my regular OB appointment as well as an ultrasound with my high risk doctor. Regular OB appointment went great, heartbeats were good. They are not going to check my cervix anymore unless I haev having problems or contractions as they dont want to irritate it if they do not have to, which is completly understandable. They said after this my 33rd week which is my current week I will have to start going to the hospital twice a week instead of once to have my NST's done (non-stress test)(they hook up a monitor to both babies and to me and measure their heartbeats and make sure the accel and decel a good number of times, and then they monitor for any contractions on me) i am glad they are taking so much preccaustions, definatley puts me at ease.

My ultrasound also went very well. Both Gavin and Paige are head-down (for now) PRAISE GOD, cause I sure am praying for a natural vaginal delivery with the help of a GOOD epidural hehe. They are healthy as can be in there and fighten already. And they BOTH weighed in at 4lbs4oz EACH! He said if I make it to 37 weeks they will be 7+pounders. HOLY COW!!! My weight gain is still good, as of that appointment was 24 pounds, which I am so proud of! I should loose that right after...it will just be a matter of getting back into shape...wait...I was never "in shape" LOL perhaps I will attempt it this time LOL. God only knows what this belly is gonna look like after they come out...best start prayin now HEHE Total Restoration! hehe.

Thanks for checkin in friends and family!!! God Bless

Getting the to Miserable Stage!

Well I am 30 weeks along. Praise God I have made it this far. But am I EVER feeling the pregnancy woes! I am emotional, everything hurts, I can't sleep, I am peeing every 30 minutes to an hour, if ones not moving around the other one is, and I have one set of feet up in my ribs and another one down below. Sometimes the pressure is so immense I cant even walk, and the pains are so sharp I cant even stand up straight. BUT..... I KNOW when they are in my arms, I wont remember a thing, and it will have ALL been worth it. I am doing my very best at work to make it. I reeeally need to make it to 34-35 weeks. Whatever time I take now takes off of my maternity leave I get to spend with Gavin and Paige and I dont want to take any time away from them. I see my regular OB Wedensday where he will check me for dialation and what ot for the first time. Kind of nervous, I would FREAK if I started to dilate. I have never went into labor on my own, and am quite scared. I am also quite scared of c-section....well VERY scared of c-section. I dont want to be down and out after they are here...I wanna be able to hold my babies and do what I gotta do with them ya know....esssspecially with two of them! I have another ultrasound next Wednesday, and am anxious for that appointment to see what they are weighing in at and how the fluid is doing around Gavin, hopefully it has gone down. This very may well be my last ultrasound before I have them...how exciting right!!! We have been SO very blessed and need for close to nothing...I know once they get here there will be stuff that we didnt think of or something, so we saved money aside from baby shower for that. We were so nervous financially, as any parents expecting twins would be, but we have been BLESSED beyond words. Thank you EVERYONE who has helped us, there are SO many of you, we cant tell you how much we appreciate everything. God we give you PRAISES and GLORIFY your name. What would we do, and where would we be without YOU GOD. And what would I do without my mom! Who knows! She has helped SO very much. And my dear sweet husband, oh how I love him. The other day I came home for lunch with a dozen red roses, two of my favorite candy bars, and a wonderful card, saying how proud he is of me, and how I am doing a great job. He wont even let me get off the couch when we are home. He is taking care of his family, and doing a GREAT job! Will give an update after my doctor appointment on Wednesday. God Bless !!

Thursday, October 8, 2009

So we had an appointment with our perintologist (high risk dr) with a level II ultrasound as well as an appointment with our regular OB. All is going very well. Paige which is baby A who will dliver first and is lower is weighing in at 3lbs2oz and she is head down, Gavin which is baby B and a lil higher up is currently breech (feet down) and is weighing in at 3lbs1oz! Their weights are great, they are about in the 65-67th percentile. They were unable to check my cervix via ultrasound because Paige was resting her lil head right on top of it, so she was hiding it...and glad to know that, definately explained why I have SO much pressure, little twerp! Gavin has a excess amniotic fluid around him, which is what they call Polyhydramnios, BUT I am clear of gestational diabetes and seems to be no chromosomal problems, which is what sometimes causes excess fluid. So now I have to go for an ultrasound every 3 weeks instead of 4 to monitor me. It can't really cause too many complications other than discomfort and pre-term labor. Here is a GREAT tidbit I thought. I have gained only 21lbs since the start! I was proud of myself for that! And I must admit it is not because I have been eating right. But now that I know I am on a good weight train...I think I am going to start eating alot better so I can keep my weight gain at a minimum. My fundal height is measuring that of 1 full term baby, and their combined weight is that of 1 full term baby, 6lbs3oz WHEW! If I can make it to 36 weeks I should have some 7lbers! WOW.!. We are praying and hoping for a vaginal deliver, c-section just scares the heck out of me. I am not a major surgery kinda girl, and I would like to avoid any downtime after they are here, I wanna be able to hold and care for my babies soon as they get here! I am also a BIG WUS when it comes to pain...nope nope not a good big fan at all. But they both have to be head down for that...so keep us in prayer they will cooperate. I can't believe how big they are already! I asked the tech if she would switch to 3d to take a couple face shots, and she sure did. I was excited, all the techs are super nice there. Well that pretty much sums it up I suppose. Until Next time, oh and I will be sure to post some new whale pictures...oh oh I mean belly pictures shortly! God Bless!!!! : )

~*Baby Shower*~

Well, I had the MOST AMAZING baby shower anyone could ever ask for!!! It was PERFECT. I was able to kick back, relax and enjoy everything. I was so silly, I was so nervous going because I did not know what to expect, and to know all those people were there for me...I had butterflies..hehe. Everything from the decorations, to the cake, and of course the wonderful loving people who were there! I have waited many years to be able to have a baby shower for my baby(ies). I want to thank EVERYONE to helped put it together, donated, cooked, decorated ...anything ...you made it one of the best days of my life. Mom, I know you did most of the organizing and creating and thank you for making the day so very special for me, it meant so much, and I love you with all my heart and dont know what I would ever do without you. I recieved almost everything I needed. And the few things I have left I recieved gift cards, so we will need to spend little to no money at all. We have been blessed beyond what words could describe. We had so many friends and family there, it warmed my heart so much. Cant forget to mention all the food was great too, specially those meatballs YUMMY! I have a wonderful group of online women who were pregnant with me through Elishas pregnancy, they are one of the greatest supports I had through Elishas birth and passing...they came together and got us the double stroller we wanted and an infant carrier along with some other things.. I was shocked. Women who i have never physically met, but have such a close relationship with came together and did this kind and generous thing for us. The interenet is not just filled with crazies, there are some real genuine people out there, that you can meet and bond with. I love them all. My mom hand-made these beautiful rag quilts with their names embroidered on them that are just beautiful, I will have to get picture of them. We also have enough clothes for Paige for three quarters of the year and for at least a half a year for Gavin. Now its just finding a place for them HA! Pray for us..hehe. We also got thousands of diapers....praise God, and THANK YOU everyone. That is something we will use in bountifuls! We have been truly blessed, truly truly. We have the most wonderful family and friends that anybody could ever ask of. You all have been there to support us, wallk with us, pray with us, fellowship. Here is a link to ALL the pictures from the shower : http://s44.photobucket.com/albums/f3/froggylicious00/Baby%20Shower/?start=all
I will post some pictures of the nursery as soon as we get everything organized and finnished up. I am in my third trimester today, 27 weeks along. i had to retake another 3-hr blood glucose test today, and should get the results tomorrow or Monday. As long as I can make it to 35 weeks my doctors will deliver me, if it is earlier than that I have to go to a bigger hospital in Tampa and have a stranger deliver me :(. They said they will do whatever in thier power to be the ones to deliver me. They have been through all my pregnacies with me and delivered both Alexis and Elisha. So I can have them in the next 7-10 weeks. WOW itis coming SO fast! Praise God ! I cant wait.

September Update!!!

Hello dear friends and family. I am sorry I have not updated in SO long. All is well here. I did fail my 1-hour glucose test to test for Gestational Diabetes, but took the 3-hour test and passed. HOWEVER, when I went to the doctor last week it showed I had a high amount of sugar in my urine specimen…soooo I have to retake the 3-hour test AGAIN. I have to drink this HIGH potency sugar drink that is like kool-aid with 4 cups of sugar in it, and they take my blood 4 times. Oh joy. We had an ultrasound last week and both Gavin and Paige are doing GREAT~! Absolutely perfect. Currently they were both in the head down position (perfect for a vaginal delivery) Baby A which is the one that is lower Paige our lil girl weighed in at 1lb12oz and Baby B which is Gavin weighed in at 1lb10oz. Both heartbeats were also perfect high 140’s and low 150’s. We have been blessed beyond words! Doctor said because we are having twins I have to deliver in an Operating Room (in case of an emerg c-sec) so only Enrique will be aloud in the room with me. No mommies L . There will be a ton of nurses and doctors in there for two of them anyhow. But still!
Our baby shower is THIS SUNDAY!!!! I am beyond excited. I have never gotten to have a baby shower before and I am so so so ecstatic! Our cousin Lizette lives in a nice complex with a nice clubhouse that we are able to rent for FREE! YAY. We have been working on the nursery slowly but surely. After the baby shower we can put on the finishing touches. We have bought everything big I can think of with the exception of the glider/rocker for the nursery. We have gotten the cribs, changer, dresser, bouncers, swings, jumperoo, gliders, high chairs, car seats etc etc…so I am praying that with the baby shower I get all my small necessities (butt crème, diapers, wipes, medicines, baby bath, lotions, blankets etc etc). I put everything we will NEED all the small stuff on my registries. So many good things are on the way in our life right now, blessed we are. Will do an update with pictures after the shower on Sunday. Love you all!!!

Last Weeks Doctor Appointments

Ok... I had two doctor appointments last week. Tuedsay I had a regular monthly OB check up. I had to take my 1 hour glucose test for gestational diabetes, and I also was diagnosed with an upper respitory infection and was given a Z-Pack for. Today a week and a 2 days later, I am FINALLY feeling better. I felt so terrible. I also got a call yesterday that I failed my 1 hour glucose test. So I have to go in Wednesday morning at 8am for a 3 hour test. I ahve to drink this nasty stuff, and then they take my blood every hour for three hours. My doctor also told me I needed to start watching my weight, which I agree with her. Since my appointment I have been eating healthy, and feel good about it. I have actually lost 3 pounds. I want to make sure my weight does not get out of control so that I can not get it back after the twins are born. I am terribly upset about failing my glucose test. The chances of gestational diabetes are much higher with twin pregancies as your body produces more insulin with two babies. I pray I do not have it, I dont really need that stress.

My second appointment on Thursday was another level II ultrasound along with a fetal echo of both babies hearts. That appointment I was quite nervous about. There were things my first level II could have missed, and I did not want them to have a heart defect like Elisha did, that ultimately took his life. BUT...both babies are still 100% healthy. No visible defects anywhere. PRAISE GOD!!! I am finally relieved.

If I can ask you to say a prayer that I do not have gestational diabetes, thank you family. I will definately update after I get my results, which should be next Thursday.

Just an Update : )

Hello ALL! I just wanted to check in with my friends and family. We have been so busy lately…much to do! We are not quite sure when it will fully sink in that we are having twins. One alone is overwhelming…two…well WOW. Although we are ecstatic with every inch, twins were definitely not something we had planned, so getting ready is overwhelming. Twin moms are supposed to take it easy during pregnancy, is that possible? Craigslist has become my new best friend. I plan on buying all the large items on there, and relying on my baby shower for clothes, pampers, bottles, washcloths…you know all the small stuff. We have already gotten two cribs, a changing table, and dresser all for only $165…again thank you craigslist. : ) I have got one out of the two high chairs I need(I am getting the Fisher Price SpaceSaver that goes right into your dining room chair which will save us loads of space). My milking pump I also got on there, retails $250 bought for $60! I also found the perfect bedding and ordered that from Ebay, it is PERFECT. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find crib bedding and nursery ensemble for boy/girl twins! VERY HARD! I got BOTH crib bedding sets for $98 (here is a pic of the bedding it so cute : http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001KUSSB2/ref=asc_df_B001KUSSB2865782?smid=A969ARKCDJC7L&tag=shopzilla_rev_1400-20&linkCode=asn ) YAY! I have collected Precious Moments since I was a small child and that is what I am doing their nursery in. I am waiting on a good deal for the swing I want and a the double stroller. It is hard to find an inline double stroller where the front seat reclines for an infant. I also still need to get a ton of car seats. We will need at LEAST 4…again craigslist is where I am looking : ) I cant see paying $80 plus bucks a piece for new ones. I am a budget, deal finding kinda girl! I pay full price for NOTHING. LOL. I had a gift card that I have had for about 3 years to Macy’s (never in my life have shopped there) for $25…went to the mall last weekend with my friend and thought maybe I find an outfit one of the babies…had picked one out for our son $25…because I know I wont have to worry about clothes for our girl..lol. Well went to go use my gift card and had expired, went to customer service to reactivate, and what do you know…sudden urge for potty break, on my way to restroom passed some baby clearance racks that seemed to be hiding away. After my release…hehe, I checked them out AND there were TWO large racks that had a $4.99 sign on it! But the tags said 7.99 plus, So I went and asked an associate if the clothes on the racks were really $4.99, she said yup they are.. SO GUESS WHAT. I got FIVE COMPLETE outfits for $25! YAY for clearance racks!

Well this Friday we leave for vacation. We are going on our last family vacation for probably about 18 years! HEHE. Enrique, Kaleb and I are going to Stone Mountain, GA which is one of our favorite places to visit, then to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, TN. I have made a daily agenda which is always my job to do for our vacations. It is fun filled we can’t wait. We are doing putt putt, gem mining, comedy show, magic show, 3 water parks, mirror maze and much much more…I just cant wait. I am already getting very uncomfortable and walking is hard and with potty breaks…well lets just say pray for patience for Enrique I am going to be worse than a kid! Kaleb is going to have a ball.

When we come back I have two doctor appointments. One with my regular OB for regular monthly check-up on the 11th, then one with high risk doctor where I will have another level II ultrasound as well as an echo done of both their hearts to make sure they are functioning properly on the 13th. Although I seen a good four chambers at my last level II ultrasound, I know things can still go wrong and I am nervous. But I got FAITH…all you need is faith as big as a mustard seed, and my faith is bigger than the Grand Canyon, so I think we will be alright!

My step-son Kaleb is getting a baby brother, Parker on the 13th! Anita is scheduled for a C-Section at noon that day, so say a prayer for a smooth and problem free and speedy recover c-section for her! So Kaleb is going to get 2 baby brother and a baby sister all with in 5 months of each other!!!! From a single child to a having THREE siblings! This is definately going to be interesting!

We are having our baby shower Sunday September 20th at 2pm. My mom, bestest friend Tiffany, and sister-in-law Tiffany are hosting with help of others as well. Enrique’s cousin reserved the clubhouse at her townhouse complex for FREEEEEEE !!! : ) It is beautiful, on the second floor and overlooks the pool and pond with fountain. We have registered at Target as well as BabiesRUs. If you would like more information on the shower please contact my friend Tiffany through email at TiffTaff16@aol.com .

I also wanted to say thank you to some special women. I am on an online community WhattoExpect.com . I was on with a very special group of women who delivered their babies in January with me. They have supported us, prayed for us, shared in our joys and tears and they mean so much to me. I wanted to say thank you also because a few of you have also sent me hand me down donations that I appreciate so very very very much. I cannot express our gratitude for that, every bit helps so much. Yesteday I got two good size boxes with probably over 100 items of baby clothes both boy and girl, I cried! You women from Jan ’09 are just amazing and I cherish you. You are my second family. Thank you Jan ’09! I love you

THE RESULTS ARE IN!

First let me give God ALL THE GLORY!!!! It is because of GOD that I can sit here right now and say how blessed I am to be having a 100% healthy baby BOY and a healthy baby GIRL. PRAISES TO HIS NAME ON THE HIGHEST!!!! I knew it. It was a LONG ultrasound..nerve wracking ...but was SO WORTH. Yu ever had one of those smiles that you cant get rid of that hurts your cheeks...thats what I have. I am going shopping as soon as I get off work for the first time for my baby(ies) I cant wait. I am going with my two very best friends, Tiffany my bestest since high school and my mom...who has ALWAYS been there for me. THANK YOU everyone for your prayers and kinds words! I will post up the ultrasound pictures by the end of the weekend! GOD BLESS
