I had my daughter at about 35.5 weeks, my water just broke out of the blue. 

Now I'm 14 weeks pregnant with twins, so obviously I'm worried about going too early.  If you had your first child early, when did you have your twins? 

Also how much did your singleton weigh in comparison to your twins combined weight?   

 

Thanks

My singleton wasn't a preemie, but she was earlier than my twins. 

 

Singleton: 39 weeks; 6lbs9oz (girl)

Twins: 40w3d; 7lbs2oz and 8 lbs even (both boys)

 

The biggest difference was the way I ate. Look up Barbara Luke's book. LOTS of protein and adequate weight gain are so important. 

 

 


Trying to get my bearings...

Thanks Ellie's Mom,

 

Funny that you mention that, I'm trying my best to follow Dr. Luke's recommendations, though I think I've never ate so much meat (especially red meat) in my life!  However, I say it's funny because the Peri I saw today told me her book is "crap."  I don't agree though, my feeling is there's some truth to it, and of course we should always go with our gut feelings...
