Congratulations on the arrival of your twins. How far along were you in the pregnancy? It's great to hear that they are doing so well! My babies were born at 33w6d and didn't have any major issues either other than eatting. You are doing a great thing by pumping BM for the babies now even though it is a pain. Are you planning/hoping to bf them too? It's challenging to switch them from a bottle to bf in the beginning, but it's completely possible to do. I needed some help from a LC, some support and encouragement, and a little bit of stubbornness on my part to get it to work here.
Let us know if/how we can help! I'll be watching for you on the Raising Multiples board.

Congratulations on the birth of your babies. Your story is such an inspiration. Please keep us posted on your progress and post pictures if you can. I will keep you, your husband and babies in my prayers.

It sounds like you are doing great with nursing them already. The one thing I wish I had done was nursed them more while they were in the hospital and I had the LC around to answer questions. You're way ahead of me on that.
When they came home and you are able to nurse them all of the time, it's so much easier than dealing with all of the bottles too. We did both in the beginning and it was such a pain even with my mom and DH there to help!
Onji,Congratulations on your babies!!!! I hope they grow fast and get to their home very soon.You made me cry, I have been having the same fears. I have felt so close to your story (I am on home bedrest at 28w4d hoping to make it at least to 30-32w) adn was praying to us.It's not your fault. I think you did great! You made it to 34weeks! That is something to be proud of. You were on bedrest, you tried your best and you did well! The babies are healthy and they just need to get a little bit chubbier:)Hugs to you and your faily!
Congrats...your post was long, but absolutely inspiring...it is so true what you said Keeping my twins in was not the answer. God took that moment to reveal to me that weeks don't matter...My babies are PERFECT!
I am glad everything is ok with them now...God will look out for you and your babies....and I am sure they will be home in no time at all!
CONGRATULATIONS on the birth of your babies!
I didn't post very much, but I had been following your journey and prayed for all of you. I am so relieved to see a post from you on here! It's so wonderful that your two little angels are doing better and better with everyday and progressing. Congratulations to you and your family!
I hope you remember me from the Dec. board, I ended up leaving because I lost my baby... now I am expecting twins... and just wanted to let you know that I was inspired by your story.
