Post subject: My twin girls arrived early!!
Hi my twin girls decided time was time on April12th and decided to make an appearance. Amelia Mary 4lbs 5ozs abd Olivia Anne 4lbs 13ozs. Both girls are doing well just a case of getting their weights up a bit and getting feeding established. Olivia had to have CPAP for 24 hours but now both are doing fine Smile They both had to have some phototherapy for jaundice but thats normal i guess in prem babies.
Cnat wait to get them home and start life with them both, I honestly never thought they would come that early as everythinh had been running so smoothly until pre eclampsia decided to rear its ugly head !!

Hope everyone else is well, be nice to hear how u are getting on with ur little cherubs

Jenna, yeah they both in cots now, Olivia stioll in hot cot trying to get her to maintain temp but Amelia in normal cot now Very Happy They certainly do like to arrive early, stressful times for us but they seem to be more than happy!! Howe long was it b4 u got ur boys home again?? Know one of ur boys had a rough start with infection??

Tillyfloss, hope all is going well with u too, i was hoping to make it to 35 weeks but i guess when they are ready they are ready!! Pre eclampsia didnt help in my case like!! Hope things go smoothly, i practically breezed my pregnancy so was totally unexpected. Although now the bump has reduced i dont know how how much bigger i could have got!!!!

Aww Liam was in one of those up til 2 days before he got out lol

Craig got out after about 4 weeks and Liam got out 6 days after him. so they were only in about half the time they were expected to.

Congratuations on your early arrivals! So pleased to hear that they are both ok and you as well. Did you have a CS or did you have them naturally?
Hope you get them home really soon. xxxx
