New Twinmama  
I have four and a half month old twins, John and Eleanor. They were the result of ivf and were born at 28 weeks due to pre-eclampsia. They came home about a month and a half ago and I feel like we are settling into a good routine. (read= I am now able to do slightly more during the day than basic baby care)

John and Eleanor are doing very well and are doing everything that a baby their corrected age should do.
I sometimes find myself wondering what things would be like if they had come closer to their due date. They are still on apnea monitors and take meds for reflux.

I think that knowing other mamas of twins would be very helpful.
Did anyone else have preemie twins?

Welcome to the group! I should mention that the rest of us know eachother from another (public) message board and wanted a place where we could talk to others in our same position "in private." Sometimes it seemed like there were more lurkers gawking at our kiddos than there were twinmamas there to support one another--boo hiss.

We have a couple preemie twins in our group, but I'm not sure they've made it over to the LJ group.

I love your babies' names. Do you have photos?

Yes. Their pictures are here. You can see how far they've come.

Oh my goodness, what sweeties! I especially love the handholding one, and then the "ella, smell my finger" one. Hahahahaaaa!!
