Some of you may remember me...I posted a few times a while back. Last year we lost identical twin girls to TTTS. Well, for some bizarre reason we got pregnant with identical twin girls again. My pregnancy was extremely stressful, but we now have our beautiful little girls!! They were born on May 11th and are doing fine. I was 37 and a half weeks along and they were both born vaginally! Just thought I would share the news with you all. Some of you were very helpful in replying to my few posts.

Any tips/hints for nursing? I am tandem feeding them, but sometimes it feels like ALL the time!

Oh, their names are Selah Rose and Noelle Jasmine...7 lbs. and 6 lbs. 6 oz.

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!

DOn't worry about nursing constantly. . . you are . . . and you will for a long time!! I spend a lot of time in my recliner (it was our best investement!!)

Just watch their wet and dirty diapers to make sure everything is good. Find some suport if you need it and you will do great!!

Your girls are beautiful. Congratulations!

As for nursing...you will be doing that ALL the time for several months at least. Just make sure you drink enough water & eat enough. I kept taking my prenatal vitamins & drinking tea as well. Make sure any visitors bring food. Enjoy them!!

Congrats on the birth of your beautiful daughters! I love their names, too. About nursing twins -- that's pretty much all you'll be doing for a while. Mine got more efficient at about 6-ish weeks & we could get out for a walk here & there, but we were still nursing a lot.

Congratulation! Your girls are beautiful!

I found that tandem nursing got so much easier once I got my ez 2 nurse pillow, it really did make a world of difference.
