The Night G Was Born

M and S the night G was born. He's soooo tired! (and confused)

M and G the night she was born. As you can see, she's a spitting image of baby S. Need further proof? Just look at S's baby pic at the top of the blog.
Thanks to Ken for taking pictures! We didn't have a camera with us, because we didn't know we were going to have a baby that day.

For those of you who missed out on the drama, here's the short version.
I thought my gallbladder was having fits, so M took me to the ER to get checked out (it hurt REALLY bad.) The ER wouldn't see us, sent us to OB triage, and they kept us all day because the OB and the parinatologist told us we needed to take the baby out NOW and I wouldn't do it without a GI consult because I was fairly convinced the pain wasn't baby related. It turns out the doctors were right (first time for everything, huh?) It was NOT my gallbladder or my pancreas. It was my (cue scary music) LIVER. Which had decided to shred my blood cells and swell for who knows what reason, but as soon as they cut the baby out, my pain went away. YAY! So we have a baby that surprised us coming and ...coming. I wonder what else she has up her sleeves? And that folks, is how we ended up with a non-elective c-section the day before Thanksgiving.
