The Birth

3/5/97

8:00 am

Ricki woke up this morning with some bleeding. I rushed her to the Labor and Delivery and she was 3-4 cm dilated. All three babies heart beats were fine and she was placed on a contraction monitor. The doctor gave her a steroid shot (to help the babies lungs mature) and put her on magnesium sulfate to slow down the contractions. He feels we might have 48 hours before the cesarean is scheduled. This should give the steroids time to work. I will keep you informed.

11:30 pm

I went home at 4:00 pm to let our dog out and eat some dinner. Ricki called me at 6:00 pm and told me "they're coming." I rushed to the Hospital; she was 6 cm dilated and everybody was waiting for me to arrive before they started the C-section. The C-section went smooth and at 7:31, 7:32, and 7:33 we became parents (8 weeks premature).

Everybody is doing great!
