While yesterday was Halloween, it was also a very long awaited and important birthday. The Dauphine Twins arrived!!
Staci went in at 6:30 and she was already 4 cm dilated and Contracting every 3 minutes. She didnt even know it. Dont we all wish we were so lucky??
At 11:09 Preston Thomas was born, Weighing in at 5lbs 3 oz and 18 inches long. Lillian Marie followed close behind at 11:11am weighing in at 4lbs 13 oz and 17 3/4 inches long.
Both babies did great. Lily required a little oxygen but is on room air only now. Staci had a little scare with high blood pressure so she required some magnesium to make sure she didnt have seizures but her pressure is slowly getting back to normal. The babies had to be in the Neonatal ICU yesterday because of their prematurity.
But they are slowly moving closer to coming home. They are taking their bottle feedings every 3 hours and handling those terrific. Hopefully both momma and babies will be able to go home tomorrow or the next day. What a beautiful blessing!! I am over the moon and so excited for Staci, Aaron and big sister Ashley.
Here are a few pics of the babies.
I am not sure which baby is which except for the baby in the isolette, I know that is Lily because she is in the oxygen bubble.
