Re: Moms of twins.

I'm Andrea and we're from Michigan.

When were your twins born? My twins, Reid and Carter were born on December 3, 2005 (413 and 414 am via c-section-breech presentation on both)
What are their genders? They are both boys.
Are they identical or fraternal? We don't positively know if they're I or F but the mommy in me thinks they're fraternal though they look exactly the same.
How early were they born? 5 weeks
How much did they weigh? (R) 5#14 (C) 6#12
How's twin parenting going for you? It's going pretty well for us. It's really fun.....except I'm SICK of teething. They each have 5 teeth at 9 months.

Smile Re: Moms of twins.

When were your twins born? May 5th, 2004

What are their genders? Boy's

Are they identical or fraternal? Identical, but they look slightly different to me and even others sometimes

How early were they born? Born at 36wks exactly vaginal delivery

How much did they weigh? 5.5 and 4.10

How's twin parenting going for you? It has been challenging especially since they have a sister 13 months older than them. A lot of hard work, but so worth it and they are such a blessing to us. Finding out we were having twins when my dd was only 6 months old, was a huge shock and I didn't know how I was going to do it. I actually cried when I found out I was having twins (not tears of joy). God took care of us though and gave me strength and I somehow have survived.

Re: Moms of twins.

I didn't give birth to twins but I do have 2 babies the same age - does that count?


When were your twins born?
Nathan - April 19th, 2005
*A* - March 16th, 2005


What are their genders?
Boys

Are they identical or fraternal?
Fraternal? LOL

How early were they born?
N/A


How much did they weigh?
N/A

How's twin parenting going for you?

Seriously? I love it! Baby *A* was in the hospital all this past week with seizures/pneumonia and when we could finally take Nathan in to see him, he just sat by nathan and rubbed his hair the whole time. Poor nathan was wandering around the house all week looking for him. He's gonna be lost when they leave.

When he got home Thursday, the boys sat in their highchairs and held hands while they ate dinner.

Now that they sleep, eat, wake and practically POOP at the same time, it's pretty easy. It was hard at the beginning --*A* would go down for a nap, Nathan would get hyper; Nathan would fall asleep, *A* would wake up! UGH!

How's multiple parenting going for you? Very well. I really enjoy it. They are such a joy to have around. It does get pretty loud in my house and can be straining sometimes but luckily that's usually when Daddy gets home to help.
