The reason for my discomfort that evening was that I was dilating, when the doctor examined me I was 3cm already & I had gotten there without contractions. I was quickly moved from my comfy room in antepartum to labor & delivery & monitored over night. By morning I was 5cm, no turning back at that point & I hadn't been contracting so there was nothing to try to stop. Our boys were coming at just 29 weeks gestation,
Once the staff had changed shifts my doctor from the previous night came in & said "you know what April 28th is? It's your babies' birthday!" The doctors decided there was nothing else to wait for & they didn't want the boys trying to come out on their own, so I was headed for an emergency c-section...
At 10:14, 10:16 & 10:19am April 28th, we became moms to 3 beautiful baby boys. It was the scariest & most exciting day of our lives!!! Caden was surprisingly healthy, he didn't even need oxygen let alone CPAP or anything like that. Kellan & Garren were very healthy too but needed a little help with their breathing. They were quickly whisked off to the NICU, but not until after I got a glimpse & gave a kiss to each of them.
Happy Happy Birthday to our miraculous big boys who say they are still babies & never getting big!!!
