I had my twin boys on May 22, at 33 wks 2 days after going into preterm labor at 31 wks and 6 days. My membraines ruptured on Baby A on the 21st and I was readmitted and delievered via c-section the next night. I stayed 4 days in the hospital and had to leave the boys behind in the NICU. They had some slight resperatory issues that have been resolved (for the most part) and now seem to be learning how to feed and digest the food and what not.
I'm having a hard time not having them home and having to go and visit...I know in the long run its good for everyone to have it work out this way, the boys will get stong enough to come home and are in super awesome hands, and i can recover completely from my c-section.
How were some of the ways you coped with having to leave your babies in the NICU for long periods of time? The doctors are saying they'll be in for at least 3 weeks, and at the most 4...I just wanna have my babies at home!
