My A was 5 lbs 11 oz and my B was 6 lbs even. I was expecting them to be a little bigger, actually, but I'm 5'0" so I feel like I did a nice job. My singletons have been in the 7-8 lb range.

I love the idea. That will help newbies like me see where everyone is at, or when they are due, to get to know everyone better.

Does the stress/anxiety ever go away? Ever since yesterday, I feel like I am going to stress every day, hoping that everything goes alright. This is my 5th pregnancy, and I've never been so scared or good with watching my food. All of my babies were healthy, and I induced at home to go early so this is quite different.

Kristin - I think adding info at the beginning is a good idea too. How did your appointment go?

March - Those are really good sized twins just as they are. You did a great job momma!

Re: Preggo Twin Mama Buddy Group!

Went into labor at 35 weeks 2 days. Baby Macy weighed 5lbs even and Trevor was 4lb 8 oz. Like March I am pretty happy size-wise since I am only 4 ft 10 . We are still I. The nicu after 13 days. Trevor just stared gaining weight 3 days ago and is on O2. Macy is being treated for neck because her tummy x rays look badbut all other clinical signs and behavior are great. We are on day 6 of a min of 10 days for her treatment.

All of my babies were healthy, and I started labor at home to go early (38/39 weeks) since I have tailbone problems so this is quite different.

I'm glad they are doing ok. That would be stressful. I don't know how you shorter mamas can do twins; I feel like I'm out of space and I'm 5'7"! They are facing each other and so low and so high; they must be doing handstands in there!

I feel the same way. I'm kind of glad we found out so late (almost 22w) so I didn't have so long to stress! It's also my 5th pregnancy, and it's totally different. I feel a lot of stress still. I think I will relax a bit when I hit 37 weeks. Of course, I'm not sure I'm going to be able to move then, but I'm only 1w 2d from hitting that The food has been really hard as well, I think. I've finally found a protein shake I can stomach - orange creamscicle shake with protein in it That's been helpful. I feel like everything will be fine, but there are so many outside influences that it also just stresses me out.

I love reading everyones updates!

I have a question- how are/were your babies size in regards to due dates? I have one that is a week behind my actual due date and the other is two weeks. Non-medical people keep telling me it is nothing to worry about that twins always run small, but my doctors are getting a little worried. I have started the Brewers diet to try and keep everyone fed and happy, but wanted to know what you all think.

Mine were both a little behind (week, week and a half) starting around 30 weeks, but it was never enough to worry anybody but me. At birth they were 6 lbs and 5.11--seemed small to me for almost 39-weekers. Brewers diet cannot hurt anything!! It can only benefit all of you!

Collectively, these babies are easier than my first baby was. I am such a baby mom. It's such effort to be around my big kids; my instincts are all "babies babies babies." I guess it's just part of the bonding process.
