my twinkies are 22 months old and we've co-slept the majority of the time. As infants, they were so tiny (10 weeks early) they shared a bassinet. Then when they'd wake for the first feeding they'd just stay in our bed. As they got older & my son started rolling in his sleep we did 1 bassinet and 1 packnplay to start, then they came to out bed. Then we did 1 crib, etc. Now they have regular beds they start out in and come in our bed when they desire. We are all in the same...
ohhh those pics so make me miss my twins being littles Your babies are beautiful mama
i began modified bedrest st 13 weeks (preterm labor), more strict bedrest at 21 weeks (rushed to Vanderbilt in an ambulance in full labor), hospitalized at 28 weeks on full blown bedrest and birthed my twins at 30 weeks, 2 days. I did everything i could to NOT have that happen. I followed Barbara Luke's recomendations. I STRONGLY believe her twin diet helped my babies along, they were 3 kbs 7 1/4 oz and 3 lbs 8 1/4 oz. I rested, took it easy, ate a minimum of 120 g of...

I am an adult and had a hard time handling it most days. He seemed to take it better than I thought he would. After...
I had my twins in a hospital. They were born 10 weeks early and delivered by maternal fetal medicine specialists. I was a strict MFM patient from 13 weeks on. (high risk patient). There were 3 drs in the practice. I met with all 3 of them at various times during my pregnancy and spoke my wishes to all of them. They were all on board with MY choices, which were a VAGINAL delivery mainly. Regardless of Baby B, as long as Baby A was head down all 3 drs agreed we would at...
just 1 set here but i personally think theres way more to this whole twin thing than meets the eye. I think theres got to be some sort of male factor in ID twinning.
we found out at 6 weeks 2 days at the ER. i was having severe pain and worried about a tubal pregnancy. well, defintley not a tubal
my Baby B was a footling breech extraction. I personally found their deliveries to be easier than my other children, but they were 10 wks early so half the size of my others at birth. They were 3 minutes apart. ou are lucky your dr is open to vaginal options. ALL of the drs in my maternal fetal practice were totally on board with vaginal deliveries for both babies, but now whenever i tell drs here in TX (twins born in TN) they cant believe it was even ALLOWED. HA! Guess...
im sorry you are uncomfortable. my twins were born 10 weeks early and i would have given anything to have made it to 38 weeks. Your little ones will be with you, you wont have to be sepatated from them, you wont have to travel every day to be able to touch them or have to wait to even be able to HOLD them. You can chnge their diapers and dress them and nurse them on demand. Things mamas are supposed to do with their newborns I know this is little consolation, but just...
it got easier, well a little easier, when mine hit about 14 months old. Then it got harder again about 17 months old. BUT we have had alot of changes (moved 3 times, my Mom died in May, we moved from TN to Texas having to stay in an extended hotel till we got our house, etc) so im pretty sure that has ALOT to do with it getting so much harder again. BUT, they are fun They play together and "read" together and chat and really are a team. I wouldnt trade em for the...
