View Full Version : I'm a new aunt again (to TWINS!)

01-19-2007, 09:10 PM
My brother and his wife had their twins this morning. (about 6 weeks early). Baby Girl had stopped growing because her brother was a womb-hog apparently. The doctors decided to take them by c-section this morning because they felt they could do more for baby girl out of the womb than in. Both are doing fine. Crying like good little newborns.
Wyatt is 5 lb. 5 oz. and his sister Ashley (the first girl grandchild for my parents - the other 8 are boys) is a very tiny 3 lb. 14 oz.
Soon as I get pictures I'll share. They are in neo-natal and hopefully will continue to do fine.
My brother said that Ashely was crying so hard, and when her brother was laid next to her, he put his arm around her she stopped crying right away. they are used to be all smooshed up together apparently.

(If you are the praying kind, please keep them in your prayers until we get out of the critical time for premies.)

I prayed!

Hi Stewie! Congrats!

01-19-2007, 09:12 PM
Smooshed is good.

Congrats to you and your brother's family. :Hug2:

01-19-2007, 09:15 PM
Congratulations. That's so sweet about her stopping crying when her brother was placed next to her.

01-19-2007, 09:16 PM
How wonderful! I'm so glad they were born at a healthy weight (even thought baby girl's a wee bit small). My friend had the same situation with her twins. Baby girl had no room to grow because baby boy was all stretched out! They're 9 now and perfectly fine.

Congratulations to your family. I hope the babes come home soon.

Will keep a candle lighted for all good things, Trish!

Awww! That's wonderful!! Congrats to you and the new parents :)

01-19-2007, 09:23 PM
Thank you all!

Of course, right away, all of us having just boys for all these years, my sister-in-law, sister and I are delighted to be able to buy girl clothes for a change!
Itty-bitty girl clothes! aawww...

(even thought baby girl's a wee bit small).

yes, a wee bit small - 3 lb. 14 oz. ...when I go to the deli I order more ham than that! ;)

My MIL felt the same way. She had two boys, then had two grandsons when my daughter came along. Tessa weighed five pounds, seven ounces, so bigger than your niece, but still the clothes were tiny.

Trish, congrats! When my twinkies were born, they were snugglers too. I'd lay them on opposite ends of the crib to sleep, and when they woke up later, they'd be all mooshed up next to one another, like little fat magnets. I remember times when Zachary would wake up screaming at the top of his lungs, his face right next to Breanna's, and she'd sleep through the whole thing.

Sending good vibes out for you and your twinklets :)

Congratulations, Stew21! My brother and I were born via c-section, too (but we were kinda big). Hope the babies will continue to do well, please keep us updated.

Congrats Trish! Bring pictures next time...:D ...

Congratulations Auntie Trish (and to your brother and sister-in-law of course). :)

I hope they grow happy and healthy.

01-19-2007, 09:54 PM
Many congrats, Trish & family and so praying for them to be healthy & happy. That is so touching too about the brother holding her and she stopped crying. :Hug2:

01-19-2007, 09:57 PM
Aww, I bet they're precious. Will pray for a healthy start.

01-19-2007, 10:02 PM
Wonderful news Trish! Here's wishing the whole family the best of everything life has to offer.

Just don't forget to invite any bad fairies to the christening.

01-19-2007, 10:24 PM
Congratulations! I tucked 'em onto my prayer list, too. Keep us updated.

01-19-2007, 10:56 PM
Congrats Stew, it's great to be an aunt. Iíll keep them in my thoughts and prayers.

01-19-2007, 11:54 PM
Congrats Stew and family!

That's so sweet. I just love the way twins cuddle. Did anyone watch In the Womb: Multiples?

They are a pretty good weight for being multiples, and the NICU care is great these days, so all should be well.

Congrats. Sounds like they are in good hands. Putting newborn multiples in together is the way to go. Sending prayers for Ashley and her family.

01-20-2007, 12:54 AM
Have you spotted the evil one, yet?

01-20-2007, 01:24 AM
Well considering the boy was hogging all the room (womb? hehheh) I would say he is the evil one. :D

01-20-2007, 01:27 AM
Hurray! (I even included an exclamation point for you, Trish). Let modern medicine work its miracles and pass on my prayers that they grow up strong and ornery.

01-20-2007, 01:58 AM
Congrats, Trish! You're entire family is in my thoughts. :)

01-20-2007, 03:26 AM
Oooh! Congrats all round!

01-20-2007, 03:37 AM
Congratulations Tia Stew. Get your hands limbered up, cause they're gonna need a couple of extra.

01-27-2007, 11:34 PM
Here's my little sweet'ums! :) Doing well. They had a rough few days but seem to be getting stronger every day. Thanks for the well-wishes, everyone!


01-27-2007, 11:38 PM
Trish, they're precious!! Just wanted to pick them up for a cuddle. Congratulations!

We're celebrating my nieces' birthday tomorrow--2 siblings born the same day, but not the same year, so not twinnies.

ETA: I will pray for their continued healthy development. Both my babies were NICU graduates. The technology is amazing these days. Keep us posted.

01-28-2007, 01:05 AM
They are so cute!

Makes me want to go have another.

01-28-2007, 01:10 AM
oh they're adorable, Congratulations!
Hope their moma's feeling well now too after my moma had her C-section(on my two lovely lil bro's) she was all sore for ages

Update: Baby Boy is home with mommy, daddy and big brother. Baby girl is still in the hospital. She has some weight to gain before they will let her go. She's doing well, just not ready yet. Hopefully soon.
thanks for all the well wishes. they seem to be doing great.
