And The DNA Results Are…

I remember being told that our twins were fraternal from the very beginning. Several doctors indicated that the ultrasound showed that our twins were in separate sacs and had separate placentas. Well, while researching information on multiples, I found out that the situation is not so straight forward. As mentioned in my other post, if...

Breastfeeding Twins – The First Week

On day 4, my lactation consultant came. I recommend all moms of multiple have one on speed dial just in case. She evaluated both girls prior to feeding and after. After about an hour, even she mentioned the “F” word, formula. She knew that I was absolutely committed to breastfeeding, but she had to follow...

Breastfeeding Twins – The First Few Days

As I’ve mentioned before, I had a horrible experience at Memorial Hermann Hospital in the med center. I knew that I would breastfeed my twins and informed all of the nurses and staff that I planned to breastfeed. At least 10 people asked me if I was going to breastfeed or formula feed so everyone...

How The Dragon Babies Came To Be Dragon Babies

It is common for Moms and Dads to nickname their babies while still in the womb. We called Preston hirm because we didn’t know if he was a him or a her. We decided to call the twins, Dragon Babies because 2012 was the year of the Dragon. It was also a Water Dragon year...

To Find Out Or Not To Find Out

This modern society that we live in today is wonderful and amazing in so many ways. However, with the information age there’s almost nothing to look forward to. There are no surprises. We know everything immediately and are addicted to it. My husband and I decided that we didn’t want to know the sex of...
