Thanks everyone! They'd already been in the NICU for awhile when this pic was taken which is why they're not on any O2, but they've done really well from day 1 and were never intubated, just had CPAPs!
tinydancer - no one knows why they came early! I was at a routine appointment when they discovered that my cervix was less than 1cm long and 90% effaced - it had been over 5cm long just 2 weeks prior. I never had any pre-labor signs and denied that I was having contractions all the way to 8cm - it was sooooo much less painful than Freddie's labor! Both babies were breech so I had an emergency c-section at 10cm dilated since there was no stopping it at that point (my doctor and I were both cool with a double breech delivery for babies closer to term, but not for 28 weekers) which wasn't my plan but was a really good birth experience, just very different than my waterbirth with Freddie!
Oh, and they were 3 pounds 3 ounces and 3 pounds 4 ounces at birth which is really high weights for their gestational age. They both got down under 3 pounds early on but I don't remember how low. They're 6 1/2 and 7 pounds now! I'll upload some newborn pics when I get the chance
Mabel may be coming home as early as THIS Thursday, so keep your fingers crossed for her!
