How big were your twins born? - Page 3

post #41 of 49
I think a person can do everything "right" and it still go all "wrong". I did everything I could to raise the chances of having full-term babies, knowing full well, that it still might not have been enough. It was in the end, but even at the end, I was relieved to have made it that far.

Nope, you're not.

I appreciate the kind comments. It's sometimes really hard to be on an AP/NFL site after having a birth experience which was the antithesis of both. I've never felt like anyone here was pointing at me and saying "oh she must have done something to cause her twins' early birth." The feeling bad at the "good job" stuff is mostly just an extension of my own sadness.

Multiple Birth Weights

I am currently pregnant with g/b twins. 27wks as of right now. Dr says i will be induced by 38wks.May 5th to be exact. I am very excited and kinda worried because at 23wks i was told my twins were 1lb 5oz. Is this normal? Are my babies gonna be tiny? I have to admit this is the best pregnancy i have been through other than severe back pain. My daughter is laying on a nerve i believe because after sitting no matter the length in time i am limping everywhere. It hurts. I cant wait for May 2008.I am a mom of 2 toddlers also. 3yr old boy and a 4yr old girl. Yup hands are gonna be full beyond extreme i think.

pregomomma, are you seeing a chiro? I am having horrible hip and back pain (and did with my singletons as well) and she's hopefully going to be able to stablize my pelvis. My left hip twists inward and puts pressure on my sciatic nerve. It's enough to nearly bring me to my knees, and sometimes actually has.

My boy today was 1 pound 9 ounces and I'm 25.5 weeks so I'd say you're doing well! They were measuring right on with my due date of May 30th.

I second the chiro. Also, beyond the pain is there a reason he is inducing you? To a lot of doctors being preggers with twins in and of itself is reason enough to force you to go early or even to c/s you. And it's not. PLEASE explore your options before you go through with this.

I don't think anyone was trying to imply that those who went early or had smaller babies did something wrong or didn't do something right. I think in general most women who frequent these types of boards do more things "right" then wrong or not doing at all. KWIM?

But no we have no control over what mother nature has in mind.

I listened to my body, took it easy much earlier then what the doctor thought I needed to, ate more calories and protein then what my doctor recommended. I did these things because of sites like this and other experienced mothers out there who had been there done that

I still ended up with preeclampsia and delivered the girls at 34w6d weighing 6 lbs and 6 lbs 13 oz. It was still early. I was still sick. But IF I hadn't done what I had done, I might have gone earlier and with much smaller sicker babies.

Knowing how awful my body has always dealt with pregnancy, I am very proud of the successful outcome I had thanks to many useful tips and info like you all ahve given here
