Hurray Kristen! I'm so so happy for you! The girls are beautiful and look so healthy! And it's great that you had an uncomplicated delivery and are recouperating well! Hope they have a short Nicu stay, though it sounds like at least one will if she's already nursing well - that has to be great news! :D :D :D

Thanks so much ladies!! We're totally in love! Both babies are doing fantastic and will hopefully be released in a week or so. Katelyn is off her CPAP and working hard to catch up to her sister feeding wise. I got to tandem nurse both girls today and it was awesome seeing them together again!!

They are beautiful! Isn't amazing when you get to see them together for the first time since birth?

That's great that Katelyn is off her CPAP. Do they know when they'll get their NG tubes out? That was an exciting day for me too. Congrats on being able to nurse! The cool thing about having babies in the NICU was that I had access to the LCs even after I was discharged.

My gosh, they are just gorgeous. Do you know (or suspect) if they're identical or fraternal?

Yes, that was amazing to see them together for the first time! Can't wait for them to get to snuggle again on a regular basis. Really hoping the NG tubes come out soon. Maybe by the weekend! I've decided to just pump and feed them bottles while we're here so we can get them out of here. The breast feeding takes a lot out of them and they fall asleep before they get enough. So far they're taking their bottles like champs so we're going to stick with that and work on breast feeding more when we get home. At this point, as long as they're getting my milk, I don't care if its in a bottle or straight from the tap, whatever will get them home quicker!!

Oh, they are definitely fraternal! We transferred two blasts and they have different blood types so no doubt about it! :)

Thanks ladies, you are all so sweet! :hb:

We also did the bottles to get them out of the NICU as soon as possible. Good luck little ladies! My boys say drop those NG tubes asap, bottles are much tastier!
