Quoting MommyDavis:" I'm currently 31 weeks with my twin boys and have now been put on bed rest because my cervix has shortened ... [snip!] ... Dr did say their weight looked good and everything else with them was fine development wise so that was reassuring at least."
32 weeks 3 days, two identical girls (shared placenta), they were starting to show distress due to TTTS
no sign of early labor
had steroid shots 5 days before they were delivered
they were both perfectly healthy, but v. v. small:
baby a was 3 lbs 9 ounces
baby b was 3 lbs 1 ounce
27 days in the hospital
they grew LIKE CRAZY when i got them home. reached the unadjusted growth charts at the 1 month well visit
at the four months appointment, baby a was 85th
percentile, baby b was 67th
mind you, at this point, they were only two months gestational age!
their 6 months well visit is coming up, i have a feeling they'll be OFF the charts, in the TOO BIG direction
they are awesome
i <3 my girls
