Noah and Mina's Story-The Delivery

Since I was dilating so fast, they had no choice but to do a c-section right away. It was no surprise, we knew it was going to be a c-section, but they had to drop all plans and rush me up. After the epidural which was the worst part I was all laid out.

There was a ton of people in the room. Two NICU teams-one for each baby, several resident OB's since it was multiples, several nurses, and Jake. The begin the incision. In a few short minutes, Mina entered the world...butt first. (Stinker). She did not cry so the NICU team rushed to check her out. While I was worrying about her not crying, Noah was born. He let out a hearty yell. Soon after Mina began to cry. They were both breathing on their own and didn't need any oxygen. Mina was 5 lbs. 15 ozs, and Noah was 5 lbs. 10 ozs. Jake got to hold them first, then it was my turn. I didn't even feel the rest of the c-section or sewing up, I was too overwhelmed.
