I was 41 years old when my twins were born at 38 weeks, delivered via c-section, 6 lbs. 12 oz each. They both are now 19 months old and healthy. We are so grateful for their arrival that we decided to chronicle our family's life by writing a blog at www.MamaInHeels.com.

I'm 30 years old and was induced with identical twin girls at 37 weeks. My doc said that where they shared a placenta they didn't like to let you go past 37 weeks because of increased risk of complications. Unfortunately I had one vaginally and the other 2 1/2 hours later by c-section because my contractions pretty much stopped! Baby A was 5 lbs 11 oz and baby B was 7lbs even...we all went home 4 days later!

I delivered my fraternal twins at 29 weeks (April 1st, 2012) - They were born via c-section once I started having contractions they were 2.4lbs and 2.75lbs I had been in the hospital on strict bed rest since 25 weeks due to me being 2cm dilated and contracting. After two rounds of Magnesium and two rounds of preventative steroids the girls decided that they were ready to come four weeks later and they did. They are currently in the NICU and I'm waiting patiently for them to come home happy and healthy.

My twin daughters were 35 wks 4 days..and Hannah was 5lbs 11 ounces and Ryleigh was 5lbs 3 ounces.. They broke Hannahs water too early so she was on antibiotics for 2 days but they both came home with me. So they were only in the hospital the 2 days that I had to stay.

My boys were born at 34 weeks and 2 days due to Twin B was IUGR (inter uterine growth restricted) from 12 weeks on. I was put on modified bed rest at 24 weeks and they were delivered by c-section with Jackson weighing 4lbs 14oz and Roman was 2lbs 6 oz. J was in the NICU 10 days and R for 4 weeks. Both were jaundiced and just had to learn to feed and gain weight so they could regulate their temp. other than Roman being diagnosed at 15 months with Hypothyroidism, they are otherwise healthy and progressing with and sometimes before their peers. they will be 2 in January. roman is still small for his age but that is more from the hypothyroidism than the prematurity

My sons were deliver six and a half weeks early with Spencer weighing 4 pounds 14.5 ounces and Tanner weighing 2 pounds 12 ounces. I thought that they came early was because I had done something wrong. Both boys were medivac'd to a hospital that is two hours away. Spencer stayed for 2 weeks and was released at 5 lbs. exactly, Tanner was released a week later at 3 lbs. 7 oz., They are happy and healthy at 10 going on 11 in February. Tanner is still little and has had his fair share of problems but the pediatrician says that by the time the boys reach puberty he will catch up with his identical twin if not by pass him. They are a true Gift from God and my last pregnancy.
