At my 37 week appointment my doctor decided to induce since I was continuing to dilate but hadn't gone into active labor. I had contractions most of the pregnancy (common with twins) but they never got organized on their own. We went to St John's Hospital at 5am on Saturday Feb 4th for the induction. They started by monitoring the babies' heart rates for around 30 minutes, drawing labs and setting up. Then I was checked and found to be 5cm, and the pitocin was turned on around 6:30 am. My ob arrived around 7am and ordered the epidural, and then broke Liam's water to help get things going. I never felt labor!! It was fabulous :) I slept most of the morning since I was comfortable laying down for the first time in months! Around noon my ob checked me and said we were ready to move to the OR! They always deliver twins in the OR because the risk of an emergency c section with one or both of the babies but my Dr was very confident that we wouldn't have any issues.
The OR staff was still setting up when we were wheeled in, but Liam refused to wait! They had to rush because he almost came out on his own! It only took 1 push and it wasn't even a good one because one of the nurses made me laugh in the middle of it :)
The Davis Twins!
