100 lb. Club - OT: The twins are here (early) so I'll be back in 5 weeks!

My weight loss journey will start again in 5 weeks!

I had my twins on November 29th, after "PROM" (premature rupture of membranes - aka my water broke early), they couldn't stop my labor, & I was bleeding so they worried about a placental abruption, so they were delivered by emergency c-section, 10 1/2 weeks early (wasn't due til february 10th). Anyway, they were born at 4:16am (just a few seconds apart), "baby a" who has been named Nevaeh Analiese measured 16 inches long, & weighed in at 2lbs 14oz. "baby b" who's named Avaria Colleen measured 14 1/2 inches long and weighed in at 2lbs 3oz. I came home from the hospital a couple days ago, but the babies remain in the NICU, where they will be until probably mid-january. They are both doing amazingly well! They are breathing on their own, with no oxygen or assistance, they are taking breastmilk down a feeding tube, and doing all the normal baby stuff they should be doing! They have just an IV for extra nutrishion, and "billy lights" beacuse they were a little jaundice (but those will be coming off tomorrow hopefully) Which is soooo wonderful! :D Please keep them in your prayers though, that they continue to do well, and grow! I can't wait till they come home. :)

Wow! They are absolutely precious!
My heart is with you, you've got a tough road ahead. It's wonderful to hear that they are doing so well!

My best friend had her twins 16 days apart at the end of May/beginning of June (ask me about that if anyone wants to know...LOL!). I was with her for the birth of the boy.
Her boy, came at 24 weeks and 6 days-fifteen weeks and a day early. And her girl, came at 26 weeks and 2 days-13 weeks and 5 days early. Very very micro preemies!
It was TOUGH! BB girl did pretty great and went home after 81 days. BB boy had major lung problems and was on a vent for months. They nearly lost his multiple times. He went home after 145 days, still on oxygen but doing well!
Brain MRI's look OK. Tiny bit of ROP in the BB girl. Time will tell for other stuff...

Miracles babies are a very wonderful and magical thing, they are SO infinitely strong!

Your girls are amazing! And I wish you smooth travels through this very trying time. You certainly have my prayers!

congratulations! Your daughters are beautiful! Hand in there, I know that the NICU journey can be a painful experience, one of my twins had a brief stint in there.

Please keep us posted on their progress!
