No problem. They are five and a half months now and perfectly fine! They have caught up weight wise and do not have any developmental delays whatsoever!  One twin spent 12 days in the nice and the other one extra day, they just needed to learn how the suck swallow reflex as it hadn't developed yet and they were tube fed for awhile bu tether than that were great! Good luck to you and I am sure your daughter will be perfect!

     Your story and the success of your babies at 33wks really encourages me!! I'm on bed rest in the hospital because my water broke unexpectedly at 32wks. Baby girl has been a fighter and has continued to stay put so I am now at 33wks 3 days.  I will be induced March 20 unless my labor starts naturally.
     All I want to hear is her cry when she comes into this world and it is really encouraging that at 33wks your twins had fully developed lungs.  That is awesome!!  I am praying that we will have a similar success story.  Thank you so much for sharing!

Congratulations, Twins!  We chatted in the chat room a few times ;-)  I know you were so worried about their weights - sounds like they are doing wonderfully w/their gestation age and should be home very soon!  I am still waiting over here - thinking it might me any minute ;-)

Thank you ladies!  My recovery is slow but I am feeling a little better everyday.  Both babies continue to do well, they are both gaining weight but are still having trouble bottling and continue to take a majority of their feedings by tube.  Once they are consistently bottling and the tube is no longer required they should be able to come home.  I was hoping it may be sometime this week but next tuesday is looking more realistic.  I tried to attach pictures but they were too "big"  and I couldn't.  :(
