I got woken up to the middle of the night to incredible pain in my
stomach. I got up and went to the bathroom figured maybe I just had
to go to the bathroom. But after about 20 minutes isnt going away.
I got up and started to walked back into the room when I felt
something a sharp pain in my lower stomach then something start
leaking down my legs. I flipped on the bathroom light and just
stood there. My water had broke. These babies were coming. "Stephen
get up get up" I screamed. I heard him ruffle through the bed
sheets and stumble in here trying not to hit any thing on the way
to me. " What whats wrong?" He asked panicking. "My water broke" I
said. "What are you sure?" He asked. "Well I did pee myself so I am
sure" I said. "They can't come this early you are just at 6 months"
he said. "Well tell them that they have other plans" I said. "Ok we
gotta get you to a hospital they can't stay in there very long
after your water breaks" he said. "How do you know that?" I asked.
"Ive been reading a few books ever since we found out we were
having a baby" he said. "Oh" I said as he took my hands and I
stepped over the watery bloody mess that was on the floor. I
slipped on my shoes as he got dressed and walked me out to the car.
He turned on his GPS that was in the car. "The nearest hospital is
about 30 minutes away" he said. "Ok just get there" I said. As he
started the car and slammed it into gear and drove off pretty
quickly. I could start feeling pains in my stomach as I just
started screaming. "What is it baby?" He asked. "I think they are
contractions" I said. He just looked at me and grabbed my hand
"just squeeze it if you need to I am going to get you there as fast
as I can" he said. We literally got there in about 15 minutes I was
definitely having contractions every few minutes. He pulled up into
the emergency lane jumped out and ran inside. He came out with what
looked like a doctor and couple nurses. They helped me out of the
car and into a wheel chair and took me inside. "Sir you have to
move your car she is going to be taken up to the 3rd floor" one of
the nurses told him. He looked at me and said "I will be right
behind you I promise" he said. I just said "Ok hurry". Even though
I was still mad and upset at him that was the last thing on my mind
right now. I still needed him there. I got taken up to the 3rd
floor rushed into a labor and delivery room and put into a bed. The
doctor examed me really quickly and said "They have to come out
right now they are too young to stay in and go through the process
of birth. Your going to have to get a # section.". I just laid
there as the nurses helped me change into a gown and prep me to go
into the operating room. "Give us about 5 minutes and we wi be back
to get you"she said. I heard Stephen run through the door way to
the room and over to me. "Whats going to happen?" He asked. "They
are doing a C section the babies are coming out now" I said. He
just sighed and hugged me whispering in my ear "This is all my
fault all my fault I made this happen" as he started crying. I
started crying with him. I knew that having the babies this early
there was a good chance they wouldn't make it and it would be a
long road a head of us if they held on. The doctor came in and said
"Alright let's go ahead and go". Stephen looked at him and the
doctor said "I am sorry Mr. Wilson but since this is an emergency c
section you can't come with us". "Just please let him" I said "I
can't do it with out him" I said. "Alright the nurses will bring
you some scrubs put them on and come get you when you can come in.
Just sit behind her head" he said. "Whats the chance?"Stephen
asked. "I am not going to lie about 50/50 I have seen it go both
ways. So don't be surprised if they don't come out crying their
lungs haven't developed yet and probably won't cry at all" he said.
As they started pulling me into the hallway. "I will be there as
soon as they let me" he said to me and kissing my forehead. I just
closed my eyes and let them wheel me in there. They sat me up and
gave me an epidural and laid me back down. They started preparing
things until I heard a ladies voice telling me she was the NICU
doctor and there was a team of really good nurses and doctors here.
I just closed my eyes again and felt tears going down my face. It
had been a good 10 minutes until I felt someone kiss my forehead. I
opened my eyes and Stephen was sitting above my head. He just
kissed my head again as I kept crying as he was too. I could feel
his tears start hitting me on the face. "Don't let nothing happen
to them I know you will be a good dad" I said.."You will still be a
better mother" he said. I could feel them start putting alot of
pressure on my stomach as it felt like it wad being ripped in half.
"Here comes the first one" he said as I felt her being pulled out
of me. "Look at her" I said."She needs to at least know one of us
in here" I said. Stephen stood up and looked over the sheet that
was put up in front of me. "Mr Wilson here is your first daughter"
I felt him pick up my hand as he watched them take her away.
"Here's the second one" he said as I felt the hard pressure and
pulling again. I could feel his hand grip harder as the doctor said
"Here's your second daughter" as Stephen didn't say anything but I
heard them take her away too. He sat back down next to me as his
eyes were filled with tears. "How did they?" I asked "Beautiful
just like their mom" he said kissing me this time on the lips. "I
am sorry baby its all my fault" he said "They are going to be ok
right?" He asked. "Yes I hope so" I said. "You have to believe it"
I said picking up his hand. "I do" I said. "I do too" he said.
"Good" I said. He leaned down and kissed me again. "I love you I
understand if you don't say it back but I love you and thank you
for giving me two of the most beautiful little girls" he said. I
reached my hand up the side of his face. "Thank you for letting me
become a mom" I said. He just smiled at me and kissed the side of
my hand. "Go be with our babies they need you" I said."Are you
sure?" He asked. "Yes" I said. "Ok I will be back soon" he said
standing up and about to turn away. "Stephen?" I said. "Yes" he
said turning back around. "Come here to me" I said. He lowered his
head next to mine as I whispered in his ear "I love you". He just
sighed a deep relief "do you really mean it baby?" He asked."Yes
baby I do" I said. "No go be with our babies" I said. He looked up
and kissed me again but this time really softly. "I will see you
soon baby girl" as he turned around and blew me a kiss before the
nurse let him out of the room.
