Megyn has arrived......Early!!!!

Megyn Velynda was born on 12/8/09 at 0212 am. She weighed 5 lbs 13 oz and was 18 inches long. She was born at 35 weeks 4 days. Megyn scored a 9 our of 10 on her apgar test. She is absolutely perfect. She was able to stay with Logan and I the entire hospital stay and we came home on 12/10/09. We feel so very blessed to have her in our lives....


Her birth story.....So I had been having contractions for weeks. I was on pocardia to help control them...Well on Monday 12/07/09 I was having more contractions than normal...We had dinner and I was just very uncomfy...I complained to Logan that I was done. I have been having contractions for too long and I just wanted to deliver her (I should have been careful what I wished for) So I got into bed and drank water around 7pm..I tried to relax and control my contractions. Well they were coming every 5 to 6 minutes apart. I really did not want to got to the hospital because I felt they would just send me home...Well at around 10 pm..one of my L&D nurses was on facebook...So I asked her, her opinion on if I should go to hospital or not. She advised that I should contact my doctors office. So I did. Dr. Monte called me right back..when I told him what was going on he told me to go to L&D...So I got up showered and packed a bag...We got to the hospital a little before 1 in the morning. Still thinking they would just send me home...We didn't bring Megyn's bag or carseat...just our stuff...Well once they checked me into triage..they called Dr. Monte...I heard the nurse say 30 minutes!?!? I asked Logan what was going on...he said he couldn't hear.. I figured they were going to give me a shot or put me on Mag sulfate to stop the contractions, because by now they were 2 to 5 minutes apart... The nurse rushed in and so did the charge nurse, they both started prepping me...I asked what was going on..They explained they only had 30 minutes to get me ready for a c section...I was like ...WHAT!!??? Totally did not expect this...Logan had enough time to run to the car and get the camera before they wheeled me to surgery...by 145am I had my spinal block and was waiting for surgery...I heard the Doctor say they were ready for the incision..and I realized Logan was not in the room yet. They ran and got him in time..It felt like it took for ever for them to get her out...Finally at 212 am I hear the loudest scream and lip quiver ever...She was so pissed to be yanked out of her cozy belly...Logan was able to cut the cord and stayed with her while she was cleaned up..Finally after what felt like FOREVER they brought her over to me...I couldn't hold back the tears of joy...Logan escorted her to the nursery. I had another hour of surgery left. Finally I went to recovery..Logan came in a few minutes later with Megyn...We were both so amazed they just gave her to him...We just weren't used to being normal parents...We held her for a while..She was so perfect,,,,,I was so in LOVE... We finally got to our room around 5 am they tried to let me sleep for an hour, but all I wanted was my little baby...they finally brought her to me...So needless to say, we did not sleep for the entire first day...she stayed in the room with us the entire time and has been just perfect,,,Logan and I are so happy to have our little munchkin. We both did so well they discharged us a day early. We are really enjoying being home where we can relax without tons of people coming into our room every 10 minutes....

Welcome, baby Megyn, little early, but its ok, at least you will be little more alert when the Big Guy drops down your chimney with wagon of toys ! Good size, too, for such an early baby (mine was 3 wks early and 8lb 4 oz - thanks to GD though)

What a wonderful early Christmas present. I've followed your story since the triplets and live in the Tampa Bay area. I'm so happy for you both. You will make wonderful parents and Megyn is a lucky little girl. Love the name by the way. What a year the two of you have had. I know your Dad and your 3 little angels are looking down from heaven with happiness and pride for all of you!

I stumbled onto your blog today and was touched by your story. I also had to be on strict bed rest with my twins - I lived in the hospital for five weeks and endured magnesium as a part of that journey. We had our twins on Christmas Eve, emergency c-section. I am so thankful that you ended up with Megyn in spite of the painful journey of losing your triplets. Our twins were very high risk and we faced a loss at anytime with them. We were blessed to have it all work out in the end. Anyway, I just connected with your story a bit and thought I'd say hello. :-)
