HOME with the BABIES!

This is just to let you know that I had the babies on Friday at 2:08AM and 2:09AM. They were 5'13oz -19.25" (Isabella Rose Tolman) and 5'15oz.-18" (Ty Alexander Tolman). I had a doctor's appt. scheduled for Friday morning at 9AM that I thought I might make it to. During Jay Leno I decided that the pain was too much and I had better go to the ER. I was a little nervous about waking Rob up because he had only gotten three hours of sleep the night before and I thought I was being paranoid. But the pain won out. We got there at midnight. They checked me and I was dialated to a 5. An emergency came in where someone had their baby right after walking into the hospital and couldn't stop bleeding so they had to take care of her first so I labored a little more, all while cursing the lady who took precedence over me, I mean how dare she come in and steal my Thunder? :) They could see how much pain I was in so they called an emergency back up team and away we went! The babies were big considering they thought I was only 34 weeks along. Their lungs were perfectly developed and there were no complications. I did find out while they were stitching me up that Isi's placenta had detached from the wall and there was a lot of blood in her sack, which might explain why she hadn't been moving very much a few days before. I KNOW God was watching out for us. The c-section was the weirdest experience ever. The funny thing is I hurt WORSE from all the labor than from the incision! My muscles and hip bone are very badly bruised . We are so HAPPY to be home and we feel VERY BLESSED that all went well and we are all healthy. I just have to say Thank YOU! to everyone who has been praying for me. I have felt your prayers strengthen me. I know that is the only way I made it through these last couple of weeks. God is Good!
