Wednesday evening we went in to Labor & Delivery at the doctor’s request because Misty’s blood pressure had been a little high. After a few hours of monitoring Misty started into early labor! They decided to admit and soon a c-section was planned for Thursday morning. As Misty’s contractions progressed the doctor decided that we should go ahead and so we headed back to the OR about 4:30 am. Soon after, Connor and Hope were born!
Here are the details:
Connor William Baker
Born 4:53 AM
5 lbs 13 oz
Hope Elizabeth Baker
Born 4:54 AM
5 lbs 14 oz
Mom, Dad, and babies are all doing great! Dad held the babies while Mom was stitched up, and then everyone went back to the room. The babies didn’t need any observation time in the NICU! They have been good at working on breast feeding and latched on right away. So far we’re on track for heading home on Saturday.
Read on for a few pictures!
Excited to meet the babies soon!

As a midwife, I've worked with several mamas-of-twins, & the general consensus is that they like to sleep as they've slept for 9 months- next to each other. I've had twins who were inconsolable when put down in their own cribs, but fell blissfully asleep as soon as they were bedded down together. Just a thought.ReplyDelete
Congratulations! Gosh they looks so big compared to my twins even though they are only a few ounces bigger then my twins were! Get some rest and enjoy the time before your next set is born!ReplyDelete
Congratulations!!! I am sooooooo very happy for you guys!!ReplyDelete
