welcoming my twins!

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

I have been trying and trying to get over here to make this post, but it has been really challenging having twin preemie newborns and not much time for typing. Also, my DW has been organizing all the photos, so I didn't really have pictures and I know those are the best part. 


My water broke on August 13 when I woke up. Baby A was still breech, so we ended up with a c-section a little early. the boys were born squalling at 1:58 and 1:59 pm at 36weeks and 4 days gestational age. We were so lucky that they were incredibly healthy and neither went to the NICU. They passed all of their tests for preemies and we came home from the hospital 2 days later.  Now, holy crap, we have babies! I posted their full names on the facebook group. w


This is Baby A. He was 4lbs7 ozs, small for gestational age, but otherwise perfect. We call him Memphis. 




This is Baby B. He was 6 lbs 1 oz, the younger brother by a full 60 seconds. We call him Otto. 




They are delightful little men. Breastfeeding preemie twins is really, really difficult, but we make progress every day. Otto grew into his cloth diapers today, but Memphis is going to take a while. 





OK, more later!! xo.

Congratulations! I'm glad everything went well and that they are healthy. They're such cute wee boys, and are making me want to meet mine even more! I hope the breastfeeding continues to get easier; it's difficult enough with one baby!

I gotta say, you are a champ for breastfeeding preemie twins. That is so great. It has to be a huge challenge, but it will be worth it.
