All About My Multiples: Pregnancy & Birth

My multiples were born at 37 weeks. Erik weighed 6lbs 5oz and was 18 in and Emonie weighed 5lbs and 7oz and was 18 1/2". Emonie is my active baby but he is the smallest and doesn't eat as much as his brother. But he is very alert. When I was carrying Emonie he was baby A and was very active in my stomach. He was breech so I had to have a Cesarean. Erik was born first and they both were a minute apart. Erik he is the oldest twin and cries louder then Emonie. Erik only cries when he's hungry, sleepy, has to burp or has gas. They both are remarkable to have in my life. I didn't know I was having twins until I was 3 months.

My Multiples Are Special Because...

My twins are special because they were a big surprise to me at the age of 30. To know I was having twins, we were very proud and know that God doesn't give you anything you can't handle and I love them very much.

Advice

  • They told me it would be hard but it's really not. It gets easier as time goes. I think the older a person gets, helps them understand and care for babies easier but I'm handling it a lot better than my other three kids I had :)
