Their original due date was May 28th, and they were delivered on April 3 at almost 10:00 a.m. at 32W+1D old. They were both a little over 4 pounds.
They are both doing incredibly well, just using a little breathing support from a nasal canula. Morgan is feeding already and Meagan is a day behind her. My milk is here in force, and I think pumping is more grueling than having newborns at home!
We've found the NICU staff to be very supportive of our requests and very loving towards the girls. We are excited to bring them home in a few weeks.

Did they come so early b/c things were starting to go downhill in utero? I know monoamniotic twins can have blood flow and cord entanglement issues. My 32-wkr. little girl was also 4 lbs. Good job, mama, on growing those sweet little girls! Please keep us updated on them; I'd love to hear from you!

Waiting on my SunshineBaby
yeah, pumping is a pain, but what's more paingful is a frantic baby trying to latch - now, that's true pain - ouch!! (that's what I'm dealing with right now)
Those little girls are adorable (and they look so big). I hope you all get to go home really soon.
