Congratulations! My twins were born at 31 weeks, 3 days (3lbs 3oz and 4lbs), so if you want to compare notes, just give me a shout! They were in the NICU 26 days, needed minor help breathing (CPAP room air, 3 days, nasal cannula room air, 14 days (?)) Mostly there that long to regulate temp (difficult for small babies) and then once they ate in the last week, they came home really fast and unexpectedly.

Pump, pump, pump! Hard to do, but with them in the NICU, you can heal, rest, and prepare for them to come home (since you were probably surprised they came early like me). Oh, mine were also considered discordant, and they came home the same day. The smaller actually progressed faster (typical because under stress they will develop faster).

Congrats! Take care of yourself and those babies!

Congratulations and welcome babies Anthony and Bella! I'm sorry they had to come so early, but how thrilling that they are both doing so well. Prayers that they continue the progress and are home with you very soon!!
