So Baby A and Baby B decided they wanted to be born today. The monitoring this morning showed some ups and downs and after talking to the Doctors they decided today was the day. Susan called me at 7:00 a.m. and said she was still on the monitors and then called again at 7:30 a.m. saying they were going to do a C-section at 9:00. So Susan's mom came over and picked up Elizabeth (She still thinks Daddy was going to a meeting....) and then I drove "very carefully" to the hospital.
Baby A was born at 9:37 and was 4 lbs 8 oz. Her name is Emma Marie.
Baby B was born at 9:38 and was 4 lbs 3 oz. Her name is Hannah Mary.
Susan is doing fine in recovery. She is hoping to come back to her room within the next hour. And then maybe up to see the girls.
Both babies are in the NICU and are needing some help breathing. Emma is breathing a little bit of help and Hannah was having a breathing tube put in. To me they both look great.
Now the next chapter: NICU
Check back in later for another update or maybe even pictures. Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers over the last 6 weeks. Let's hope both Emma and Hannah are home with us soon.
