Twin names: Alice & Oliver
Gestational age upon arrival: 36 weeks exactly
Time in in hospital: I was in the hospital for 7 days because of pre-e & Oliver having random decels, then 3 days after my c-section with the babies and we all came home
Anything else you want to share: The twins are just over a month old now and are doing great! I feel so lucky that they had no problems and no NICU time. They are finally really breastfeeding well and the formula supplementation I've been doing has dropped to almost nothing and I am hardly pumping at all anymore either, once a day at most! I even breastfed them both together the other day with my Brestfriend twin pillow, but it wasn't too successful yet, when they get some neck control I think it will work fine. My oldest DD, Sydney, who is 3.5 has really adjusted well to them, though she still get jealous/attention seeking when Mom & Dad are both busy with babies.
I'm on maternity leave for another 12 weeks and then I'll be back to work FT with all the kids in daycare. DD1 is in daycare now as she thrives there and is high needs so it would be very tough caring for her all day with the twins. I had planed to just send her parttime, but DH convinced me FT would be better and I have to agree! Thank goodness the twins are not high needs too, while they take more time to feed & change because 2 vs. 1, so far they are much easier to care for than DD1 as an infant. I'm sure that will change once they are mobile! I have to say logistics of getting around with 2 infants is challenging, but I'm managing pretty well. It is a heck of a lot harder than with one infant, though also people are very helpful when they see you with two babies.
