I am carrying identical girls..I am 32 weeks, I have had a high risk pregnancy so I am blessed with a specialist and a very conservative ob. I have been in the hospital since last Monday and will be here until I deliver which can be anytime from now til March 15th. The girls are little miracles. Baby girl B had a couple "d" cells Monday and they prepped me for the c section and wanted to wait to see if she would roll off her cord. Thank goodness she did. I have also had preeclampsia but it is practically gone, which my doctors are in shock about. They said there is no medical explanation so I know it was God's will and the power of prayer. I hope all the twin mommies out there will keep in touch because if anything dramatic happens it is so much easier to go through with a solid support group like BG mommies!!

I did not have mine sleep together. My son starting rolling over at one month and I just didn't like the idea of him in the crib with her. They stayed in bassinets for a while though. My daugther was on my side of the bed and my son on my husbands.He got too big for the bassinets at 2 months and went into his crib but my little girl was small so she stayed in our room till she was about 5 months old. Then she went to her own crib in her own room.
They would keep each other up so they also had different rooms as well.

The funny thing is now that they are four my daughter loves to sleep on his bottom bunk bed in his room. When I was seperated from my husband they were three and had to share a room and we never got any sleep. They would wake each other up and play all night long! Argh! I am so glad to be back at my house now!

Well at my ultrasound yesterday it was confirmed...they are both definitely both girls. Kinsley Reece and Kaelynn Tate are the names we have picked out. Both girls are weighing about 3 1/2 lbs. each now, whick I guess is good. I have anywhere between 4-8 weeks to go. They won't stop labor after 34 weeks and they won't let me go past 38 weeks so I hope they do some major growing in that time.
Oh... Baby A's heartbeat was 144 and Baby B's was 151

Thanks, I'm so worried about NICU time. You're an absolute trooper to go 40 weeks! I'm already counting down and I'm so glad I don't have to go past 38 lol.
