Hi, I have 7 month old frat g/g twins. They were born at 30 weeks, after 6 weeks of bedrest for an incompetent cervix and a week and a half of ruptured membranes. They weighed 2 lbs 8 oz and 2 lbs 14 oz when born, and now weigh 13 lbs even (at least they did about 2 weeks ago).
Other than two cases of the sniffles this winter, they are perfectly healthy. Even during the month they spent in the NICU, they were as healthy as could be. Ellie was breathing on her own from the start, and Emma only need a ventilator for less than 24 hours. After that, it was just let them grow on mommy's good milk!
Unfortunatly, I was only able to keep them completly bf for three months. We had lots of trouble with nipple confusion, etc, and I only had a few months of decent nursing from Ellie and ok nursing from Emma. Now, they are primarily ff with me still pumping 4 times a day to get them some breastmilk. But the pump goes back in a month and we'll be done with the pumping then.
But, most days, I love being the mommy of twins. They are so beautiful that sometimes I can't believe they are mine. Everyday with them seems to get easier and easier. But I must say, I don't think I would wish those first few months of having them home on anyone! The only way that could not be stressful would be if someone had fulltime live in help! Thank god that's over!
