Como la mayoría de las parejas, Nicole Ziesemer y su esposo Matthew querían que su embarazo fuera lo más natural posible.
Querían pocas intervenciones médicas y optaron por mantener las visitas al hospital al mínimo. La pareja contrató a una partera con la esperanza de que su precioso hijo pudiera venir al mundo en su propio hogar, e incluso decidió renunciar a su ultrasonido.
Desafortunadamente, las cosas no fueron como planearon…
Se esperaba que el hijo de Nicole y Matthew viniera al mundo el 30 de enero. Sin embargo, el destino quiso que Nicole se viera obligada a ir al hospital cuatro semanas y media antes de lo planeado.
Para sorpresa de la pareja, las aguas de Nicole se rompieron el 29 de diciembre.
Ella y Matthew no tuvieron más remedio que empacar sus maletas y correr al hospital. El momento no podría haber sido peor … quedaron atrapados en una tormenta de nieve. Matthew se vio obligado a despejar todo el camino de entrada antes de poder irse.
A través de la tormenta de nieve, en las carreteras en mal estado, la pareja logró llegar al hospital el viernes por la noche a las 4 pm. Las contracciones de Nicole continuaron hasta el sábado.
Sus planes para tener un parto natural, sin intervención médica, tuvieron que ser abandonados.
A pesar de esto, Nicole se mostró inflexible acerca de una cosa: no tomaría ningún medicamento ni anestesia para ayudarla durante el proceso de parto.
Sin embargo, incluso este plan iba a ser desechado. Después de luchar durante 30 horas, Matthew sabía que tenía que hacer algo.
Él no quería verla sufrir así; Ella lo había dado todo.
La pareja acordó que Nicole debería tomar medicamentos para ayudar a inducir un parto. Habiendo aceptado la ayuda, la labor de Nicole se simplificó.
48 horas después de que sus aguas se rompieran, Nicole dio a luz a su hermosa hija Blakeley.
Poco después, la doctora Megan Forshee procedió a extraer la placenta.
De repente, los ojos de la médico se agrandaron. La pareja no podía creer las siguientes palabras que salieron de su boca
La doctora Megan anunció que podía sentir una cabeza. ¡Nicole estaba dando a luz a gemelos!
Fue un día que nadie, incluido el personal del hospital, podría olvidar.
Pronto un hijo, Cade, llegó al mundo, 1 hora después de su hermana mayor.
A Nicole le tomó un tiempo recuperarse de su extenuante parto.
Blakeley estaba sano y bien después de nacer, pero Cade tuvo que permanecer bajo supervisión médica durante un tiempo para asegurarse de que su respiración estaba donde debía estar. Tenía líquido en sus pulmones como resultado de las complicaciones derivadas de su nacimiento.
Sin embargo, recientemente, Matthew confirmó que a Cade le está yendo bien y que ya no necesita ayuda para respirar. ¡Se espera que salga del hospital pronto!
Los orgullosos, pero sorprendidos, padres, han aceptado que las cosas no fueron exactamente como se las imaginaron.
“Lo primero que pensé después de dar a luz al segundo bebé: ‘¡Oh, mierda! Necesitamos una segunda cuna, un segundo asiento para el automóvil, un segundo para todo’”, recuerda Nicole.
Por supuesto, la razón de su cambio drástico de planes no podría ser mejor: no pasa todos los días que los padres reciban una sorpresa en la forma de otro bebé.
A continuación, puedes ver un video de la familia cuando se dieron cuenta de que tenían gemelos:
So this is an absolutely crazy story!! My beautiful pregnant wife Nicole Ziesemer woke me up Friday early morning at 12:30AM to tell me her water broke. Yes, that was 4.5 weeks early as we were due on January 30th. So we called our midwife because we are planning on doing a Home birth but since the babies were less than 36 weeks we couldn’t do a Home birth. So we decided to go to Gerber hospital in Fremont because they work well with our midwife and think more on the natural side of things. Well I don’t know who remembers Thursday night into Friday but along the lakeshore was a complete blizzard so first I had to snowplow and snowblow the driveway because we got 10 inches of snow and then we drive 2 hours to Fremont in a blizzard! We get to the hospital around 3:30-4 am and get settled into our room. Nicole was really starting to notice her contractions at that time. But once she realized what they were, she realized she had been having them for about 2 days prior. So 7AM comes around and Nicole’s brother Raymond walks in because he is filling in for a 7-7 shift at the hospital so right then we knew we were at the right place. Especially since he never works at Gerber, typically downtown GR. So we were able to see him throughout the day. Then his wife Emily is a nurse at Gerber and she was working the 7-7 night shift and sure enough she was our nurse for the whole night!! When we first got to the hospital Nicole was dilated to a 3. And as time went on contractions continued to get stronger and stronger. Around 2PM Friday Nicole moved to 4cm, then around 3AM Saturday she was at 5 cm and then at 7AM she was a 7. Contractions continued to get stronger. And remember we wanted to do all natural so no pain meds or anything. So, Nicole is experiencing awful pain all the time. We have another check at 11AM and she was still at 7cm and for the first time ever in my wife I saw the look of giving up in my wife’s eyes and it absolutely killed me. After watching her suffer for the last 30 hours pushing and breathing and screaming I knew we had to do something else so I consulted several people and Nicole and we decided to start a small dose of pitocin; well this really got contractions going and got her dilated to a 10. So at 1 PM Saturday she started to push. And she pushed hard and strong for 4 hours and nothing but severe back pain. Pain so severe she was having panic attacks about being in any position except standing. So to deliver this baby we had to do something to get her out of pain so we decided to do an epidural and this helped her pain a ton! So she then pushed for another 2.5 hrs after the epidural and then the baby decided to start showing signs of stress for the first time so at this point Nicole and I are exhausted, ready to do whatever is necessary to get the baby out, so the doctor used a vacuum because of the higher heart rate so at 10:06PM Saturday, December 30th Blakeley Faith Ziesemer (4 lbs 4 ounces) was born!!! Nearly 48 hours after Nicole’s water broke. My wife was an absolute trooper!! I was so proud of her for what she went thru and how she dealt with the pain and everything. The OB stitched up my wife’s small tear and then started to work on the placenta and to EVERYONES surprise in the room she said there is a 2nd baby in there and we all crapped our pants and then all hell broke lose. The entire floor of the hospital was in our room it was packed just making sure everything was going to be ok. It was crazy! So Nicole thinking she was done has to push again and now her epidural had wore off so her back pain was awful but she did it and at 11:05PM December 30th Cade Matthew Ziesemer (5 lbs)was born! My wife is by far the stronger person I know especially after what I saw her go thru these last two days. So even though I’m more of a natural person things happen for reasons and there are definitely times for medical intervention and this was one of those times. God definitely has a greater plan for us and showed us that we don’t control anything in our lives. It is truly up to him and we have to trust that whatever curveball he throws at us is what we need in our lives. I thank the entire staff at Gerber for all they did for us. They were great!! My beautiful wife is recovering great just extremely sore. Blakeley is extremely healthy! Cade has a breathing issue that he is closely being monitored for but it should all be ok. Since he was pushed out so quickly and never had contractions really his lungs and fluid in is lungs didn’t come out as good as his sisters. We would appreciate prayer for everyone but especially Cade and his healing. This has been one of the best days of my life and also one of the biggest emotional rollercoasters I have ever been on. Thank you to all who prayed and checked in on us. It was much needed and appreciated. Our families were absolutely shocked just like us when we told them!!! I just added the video of when we told our parents. Cade is on the cart in the corner of the room and Blakeley is hiding under the blankets on Nicole’s chest. It takes the family a few minutes to realize there is another baby there when Nicole lowers the blanket. For about an hour they seriously thought something bad happened because we had so many other hospital members rushing in to our room when the news dropped there was a second baby in there and now they learned why it took so much longer and why we pretty much had the whole floor of the hospital rushing into the room. Ohh ya I forgot to mention Nicole had the flu 3 days prior so she had not eaten anything or really slept since Sunday 4 days prior to her water breaking.********************UPDATE 1/1/18Cade was taken off his ventilator today and put on a CPAP. This is great news and some major progress to the healing of his lungs and improvement of breathing!! The prayers are working so please keep them coming!! God is absolutely amazing! Blakeley is a little jaundice but doing great other than that and we are hoping she is released tomorrow! Thank you all for your continued support!!!*************UPDATE 1/2/18Cade is doing really well!!! They took his CPAP off today and nothing changed with his breathing or oxygen levels!! So he is completely breathing on his own with no support! The last thing with Cade is to monitor him for 48 hours to make sure he doesn’t have a hard time eating and breathing! The power of prayer has been awesome to see and visualize first hand! We were really hoping to bring Blakeley Home tonight but unfortunately the MDs are still concerned with her very first blood culture being positive. She had a second culture done which has not come back positive yet but the bacteria found in the first culture is not one you mess around with. So they just want to make sure that either it was a false positive or she will fight off the bacteria herself and be on antibiotics for 7 days. So they say the earliest release would be Saturday. All the blood work looks good for her and her white count is down. So that’s a good sign that if there is an infection it is being contained. So please continue to pray for the healing of both our kids. And for my wife as she continues to recover from labor!! Thank you sooo much for all your love and support!!! I can’t keep up with all the comments but we really do appreciate them. More than you know!!!*****************UPDATE 1/5/18Both kids are doing great!! We are hoping that Cade is released tomorrow!!! As long as he takes his bottle the next 24 hrs that will happen!! He is off all breathing supplements and his IV!!!!! Blakeley is doing wonderful as well! 2 more days of antibiotics and she should be home on Sunday!!!
