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?

Hi there! My twins aren't here yet (any day, hopefully!), however I have a very good friend who had twins at 29 weeks & they are doing very well now.

They were born early last november, and their due date was mid-January (I'm not sure what that makes their age now, corrected or otherwise), but they're eating cereal and nearly crawling now. One of the babies had a VSD which required open heart surgery, and he's doing really well now.
