Who, ME!? It's so not easy but Mama I promise it was worth it in the end. I didn't have one second of nursing issues (or anything else, for that matter). Ok, Claire's mouth WAS really small and I have big ole nipples but it wasn't insurmountable. I can't imagine how fun that would've been if she'd been 5 pounds! YIKES!

I'm with Intertwined. With a uncomplicated twin pregnancy and a family history of longer gestation, March 1st easy. Which is a good thing! See if you can find a pool to hang out in. And some compression socks. Whatever you need to make these next few weeks as comfortable and bearable as possible.

FWIW - I home induced with castor oil at 39 weeks, and I'm split on whether that was a good idea. I got the home birth I wanted and two healthy babes, but they were on the small side and at least one clearly wanted more time.

Good luck!

My girls arrived 37.5wks and I am so greatful they didnt come earlier! My one daughter was born with a heart defect and we did not know until delivery. She was in the hospital for 4 wks.

Hang in there mama, I know how tough it can be to have that extra weight. Just keep your eye on the prize, it is soooo worth it!

34 weeks. Both were health but just too young, so spent 3 weeks in the NICU and it was another 4 weeks after that before either could nurse. Keep them in as long as possible and be thankful for everyday you can.]!

40w 1d...totally worth it (also in August!) b/c they were 7lbs 8oz and 7lbs 11oz, nursed immediately and perfectly and spent no time in the NICU. Keep cooking, mama...they'll come when they're ready.
