I went to my routine Ob appt last wed on november 7th and she realized that i progressed 1 cm in one week so she wanted to admite me for 1 night to just keep an eye on me. So once i got admitted my contractions started coming quickly every 2 min, i started to bleed and so they rechecked me and I dialted to a 5 1/2 cm. SO I dialted fron a 4-5 1/2 in 45 min. SO I had a c-section. I was so nervous but with almost no complications the boys came out! Davin

Oh Peachy! Congratulations! I've been wondering about you and those little guys. I'm so glad that everything went well and those are good birth weights! I can't wait to see pictures. Again, congrats and take care of those boys AND yourself!

Wow! Congratulations Peachy on the arrival of your little boys! You did a great job growing them - those are fantastic weights! So happy your DH could come home for a bit too, even if it isn't as long as you'd like. Check with the nurses, there may be a family room you can stay in after you're discharged so you can still be close to your babies. Or they may know of other options, like a Ronald McDonald house or even if your insurance might cover a hotel stay to be close to your boys. Congratulations again!

Peachy -

Congratulations on the arrival of your twins! They were a good size for being born 6 wks early. My twins were born at 33w6d and weight 4lbs6oz and 5lbs6oz. My twins were only in the hospital for 11 days. If your babies continue to do well and improve, they'll probably be ready to come home before their due date. Our ped said the big issue was making sure that they were able to consume more calories than they were burning so was largely waiting for them to be more efficent eaters and being able to maintain their body heat.

Good luck!

CONGRATS!!!!!! I've been watching for you! Great weights and you kept them in so long! I think they will be coming home in no time! They always tell you that they will be in the ICN/NICU until the due date. Not always true, especially since they are already in the ICN. Mine were 8.5 weeks early and came home in 26 days when they would have been 35 weeks gestation.

So happy for you!

hey Pechy! WOW gilr-you are stronger thenyou know-you did this without DH-your little boys will be SO proud of you!!!

I am glad DH even gets to come home, althoughI know 4 days will fly by-hopefuly this extra time in NICU means that when you go home you have less worries/headaches.

get your rest while you can....

I'm SO happy for you!
