3 am, 6/11/08

Will today be my babies birthday? For that, we will need to wait and see. My water broke at 3 am. I stared in disbelief wondering what the odds are was wrong for about 5 - 10 minutes. Figured I probably wasn't so called OB, sister, and friend in that order. OB said go to Labor and Delivery STAT. Sister said she'd come now. Friend arrived a few minutes after sister and accompanied me.

I am currently hooked up to every monitor known to man. I was allowed breakfast and am now on a "nothing by mouth" until further notice. An u/s was done, but I have very little information from it other than one baby was 14.97 g and the other 14.50 g. Haven't had time to convert to lbs.

The current plan is to monitor me to see if I go into active labor. I was told I was having contractions about 10 min. apart when in L&D. With all the activity of getting admitted and moved back to the High Risk Unit, we haven't gotten a good strip, but I am starting to feel contractions. Once I go into active labor, they will not try to stop it with Tributlane. I will have a c-section to deliver the tykes.

More to come.
