Re: for those who had twins at how many weeks did you have birth?

33 weeks on the dot. No NICU time but we were in the hospital for 7 days due to my blood pressure spiking after birth. DS was 5lbs and DD was 4lbs. DS was born with low blood sugar but a bottle right after birth solved the problem.

We are the odds one to have them room in with me at that gestation. Lots of my twin mommy friends with kids that early had 7 to 8 week NICU stays.

I've never "met" another mom with TTTS.My girls will be 2 in July.I love hearing other successful outcomes
