Maddy and Micky arrived on 6/27. Maddy was 6 lbs 13 oz and 19 1/4 in. Micky was 6 lbs even and 19 1/4 in. Maddy had some grunting/gurgling going on at first and was placed in the NICU with CPAP. She was back on room air after about 5 hours. Micky had no immediate issues.

I was released on Sunday. However both girls are still in the hospital due to ABO jaundice. This is something totally unrelated to early delivery or multiples in general. I dealt with it with two of my full term singletons.

They took the girls early because I developed pre-eclampsia. I am still having some issues with it. Funny how this whole pregnancy I worried something awful would happen to the girls and it was ME who got sick in the end.

Congratulations! They made it to excellent sizes for 35 weeks! Mine were 38.5 weeks (or more--my dates were unsure), and they weighed 6 lbs. 10 oz. and 6 lbs. 12 oz.

They're both just beautiful, too!

Thank you everyone for your congrats!

They came home yesterday. It was a very long night last night as they kept waking each other. I finally fell asleep with both of them laying on me.

Here is their hospital pic:
