Banegas Babies

I know that I haven't written, but I have been busy! I had the twins at 36 weeks:) They were born healthy!!!
Xander Justice was 6.10 lbs and Xylia Marie was 6.6 lbs. They were both 18 inches long! Pretty good size twins for 1 month early huh? Xylia was having some breathing problems, but I got her after a couple of hours! I did go into pre-term labor once, at 33 weeks but they stopped it, I did get the steroid shots for the twins lungs though... Here they are!!!
 Me getting BIGGGGGG... I was 34 weeks here.
 Xylia and Xander
Xan the Man and CeeCee
 I can't believe I have 4 kids! I love them

Cervical Cerclage and Gestational Diabetes

Day 0: I went in to the hospital with both of the kiddos in tow… I had them stay up all night so they would be tired:) I got a room around 0815 and then was prepped… I didn't go in for the operation until about 1030. I was wheeled upstairs and straight in to the OR. I remember being put onto the OR table and my arms being put out like a cross onto lil jelly like pads for my wrists. It was now time to put my legs into the slings. I looked over and saw someone putting meds into my hand… And then… looking back at the lady who was struggling to get my left leg secure… That was it. LIGHTS OUT. The rest of the day was really a daze. I slept through the WHOLE day and Night. I remember seeing Gustavo…He helped me up to the bathroom and I got sick. I remember Mimi sleeping… And DJ leaving… But not much else…

If you DO NOT know what a cervical cerclage is… It is where they stitch up your cervix. It will help prevent pre-term labor.

Day 1: Not too much was going on. I moved rooms and had a little bit of pain.
Day 2: Same… None eventful
Day 3: I had to FAST… I was going to have a the Glucose Tolerance Test. I was woken at 0530… My blood was taken…. I drank the NASTY orange drink… And again my blood was taken. Again and Again! The doctor said if everything was good, I could leave… Well- That wasn't the case. My first results were high… And my second results were 12.5… I had to had insulin and begin having my blood drawn SEVERAL more times! I swear… If you were to look at my veins… You would feel SO Sorry for me! It looks like track marks! They were doing a sugar profile to ensure I was given the right dosage of insulin. That night, I gave myself my FIRST insulin shot and learned how to use the glucometer… (Maybe that is what it is called)
Day 4: I finally get to leave the HOSPITAL!!! YAY!

How do I feel about having Gestational Diabetes???
I am upset. It sucks. I have to poke my finger 6 times a day and take two insulin shots. I do not to eat any AWESOME ice cream… I have to CHART my pricks for my doctor… And honestly- I just feel crumby! One great thing… We got to see another U/S before I left the hospital and… Our shy baby… Looks like a GIRL! The doctor said he isn't for certain… But… It looks like we have a B/G set! I have to go back to the hospital tomorrow for an injection and then another appt on the following Saturday.

More to follow...

22 March 2014 Appointment

I took Mimster to the appointment with me today! I thought that it would be a great way for her to bond with her twin siblings! She is always kissing my belly so… Why not! She was very excited to see them on the screen and could recognize their body parts! Very cute! They told me that the baby on the LEFT is a BOY! This is the baby that is always moving around! The babies keep switching from A to B and B to A… So it is getting harder to keep track! The other baby didn't want to be bothered and even turned it's back to us! Their HBs were strong and steady! The baby boy's HB is 146 and Shy baby is 158!  All in all… A great scan! Maybe we will see the sex next time!

When I saw the doctor, we discussed my weight loss… My Blood Pressure and I told him I think that I might have a UTI! I drink so much water but it is like it is NEVER enough! I was given meds and sent urine to the lab… I will hear the results in a day or two.

My doctor told me that I will be getting a Cervical Cerclage… WHOA, What!? And that I would be staying in the hospital for 3 days! I am REALLY not looking forward to that! It is now more than EVER… time that I start looking for some part time help around the house. NO MORE LIVE INs though!

I will be sure to blog about the experience! I always hate going under!
