On November 10 we went into the hospital at about 6:30 to prepare for my c section that was scheduled for 8:00. I didn't sleep at all the night before it was like waiting for Christmas when you are a kid.
We took a couple last pictures of me being pregnant and then the nurses started prepping me to go in. I think the most painful part of the entire day was getting the IV in my wrist. Once the IV was in I was taken into the operating room and scared out of my mind cause Greg wasn't allowed in yet. I got an epidural which I thought was going to be super painful, but wasn't at all it was just the icky feeling of having something going into your spine that I didn't like. Once they were ready to cut me open Greg was able to come in. The doctor pinched me and asked if I could feel it...nada. They say you will feel pressure, but I didn't feel a thing. I asked Greg if they were already starting to cut me open and at that moment, at 8:27 am I heard Alta screaming. It all happened so fast. Of course I started bawling, it was such an overwhelming feeling. Jayden came two minutes later screaming as well.

We have been really blessed to have such healthy twins. They did have to stay in the NICU for a few days because they were losing too much weight, but luckily didn't have to be on oxygen or have a feeding tube. The NICU really was a huge blessing the nurses were so sweet and we were able to have more time in the hospital to learn how to do things and feel more comfortable about bringing them home. I have never done something so hard, but so rewarding in my life
