Around 11:45pm Sean got the "Okay, you need to call family, I think these babies are coming tonight!" from the nurse.
Contractions continued and really picked up; my pain level started at 3's and by 1am they were 8's. The doctor checked my cervix several times and it had dilated each time.
By 3am they prepped me for surgery and rolled me back into the operating room. My mind was all over the place. I was cold, shaking and had a horribly dry mouth from the magnesium. Sean was able to sit right by my head and hold my hand during the whole surgery so we got to talk throughout the whole process. I had him describing all sorts of cold drinks hence I was so thirsty and could not wait to get some H20!! I remember talking about cranberry limeades, frozen margaritas and anything else served over ice. I was in shock that I was already in the operating room after only a week in the hospital. I didn't think this was going to happen so soon. If you've read my other posts, I thought I was going to be on bedrest for several more weeks. Turns out, the babies were just ready.
At 3:38am Carter Jacob Coffey was born, he weighed 2 lbs and 3 oz and he's approximately 14 inches long.
