My name is Destiny! I am 24 years old and I have been married for 3 1/2 years. My twins, Aubree Faith and Nicholas William are 13 months old. They were born February 10, 2009 at 5:51 and 5:52 pm. They were due March 5th, but scheduled for csec on Feb 18th but came still a little sooner, still via csec. At 36 weeks, 5 daysthey were born at 6 lb. 5 oz (Aubree) and 6 lb 15 oz (Nicholas) and both 20 inches long. They both spent ten days NICU with underdeveloped lungs and Nicholas also had a bleeding heart. Though my girl's condition was worse, she improved much faster and almost had to come home without her brother but the last day he made a drastic improvement as if to say "you ain't goin' without me!" and they both came home the same day! They have been healthy ever since. Four days after their first birthday they were discharged from all high-risk doctors and appointments!!! This past December, I found out I was surprisingly preggo with baby #3. I was nervous at first about twins, though mine have been excellent adn easy, but two sets would blow my mind! It is, in fact, only one baby. I am currently 16 weeks and find out soon what we are having. My husband, after a few days of shock and silence, is now excited as well! I work part time and am a biology major- schoolign part-time. We will see how long I can keep it up with three. Well, that is me (not quite in a nut-shell bc I am not good at being short so sorry about that!)

Hello my name is Liz. I am 23 years old and I have been married for a little over two years. My twins Ayden and Mikaela are going to be two years old June 8th. They were due July 21, 2008, but they ended up being born June 8th on the morning of my baby shower via an emergency c-section due to the fact that Ayden was breached, but Mikaela was ready to come out. Ayden was born at four pounds 10 ounces with underdeveloped lungs, and Mikaela was born at three pounds 12 ounces. Ayden had to stay in the hospital for 8 days, and his sister for twelve days due to weight gain issues. Ayden was discharged at a weight of four pounds 8 ounces, and Mikaela was discharged at a weight of four pounds 1 ounce. It's amazing how far they've come, when looking back at their pictures in the hospital.

I'm also pregnant with number three, and it was also rather unexpected as at the time I was on birth control. Once we got over the shock though, we couldn't be happier.

I will be 33 weeks pregnant this coming tuesday with the twins' little brother. He is due July 20, but looks like we're going to be having a planned c-section July 13th since I had one with the twins.
