My twins are mono amniotic and, if we make it, they'll be born about 32-34 weeks.

Does anyone have a recommendation for how to start to prepare for this?

Thanks in advance.

But wait, could it really be true?

I found this book very helpful when my first was in the NICU:

http://www.amazon.com/Preemies-Edition-Essential-Parents-Premature/dp/1416572325/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345996996&sr=8-1&keywords=preemies

 

Best wishes to you and the babies!

Does anyone have any opinions on Dr. Sears Premature Baby Book. I'm a big Dr. Sears fan overall....
