Re: Twin Reality Check
Twin pregnancies are hard on your body, but I had a friend who had a great pregnancy, made it to 38 weeks, 6lb babies, no NICU time, etc. She was very healthy prior to the pregnancy, fwiw. Even though my twins were only in the NICU 9 and 14 days, that was very hard on our family. H1N1 was big at the time and our hospital wasn't allowing visitors under 18. I stayed at the hospital the whole time, and being away from my 3 year old was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Did you BF? I think having prior experience is definatley helpful before having twins. It can be done and I'm so thankful I was able to breastfeed them for so long. We had a rough start (low weight gain, latch issues, etc) and I almost gave up more than once, but we made it through. Good luck on your journey!!
