where did you get those sleep siuts? they are gorgeous boys. on close look their little faces are identical. i suppose its handy their different sizes means u can tell them apart
Thanks ! Which sleep suits ? The I love mummy/ daddy ones are from Next but we were given them before Christmas - hopefully they have something similar in for you !
You're right about the size difference - haven't worked out how we're going to tell them apart when Ben catches up with Finn !!
They are looooooovely!! Crazy how identical they look despite the size difference. So sweet, hope you're enjoying them x
I am officially in love with my boys ! It's mad as I never understood how people instantly fall in love with their children but now I get it !!
Your twins are so so cute ! I see your in Cheshire - we're in north Wales !
by the way love yr names. particularly finn-he he, but i would.
yeh it was the mummy daddy ones.
ah ive got 15 weeks maximum left til they pull mine out. i cant wait. weve named them already instead of being 1 and 2, and im sure i have one tinker already.
my finn had loads of dark hair, when it was washed he looked like a baby pigeon.
what were their weights born? how far did they let you go? did u have any trouble with them?
Ooh exciting ! Not long now - are you nervous ? Are you having a planned c-section ?
I had a planned section on valentines day, i was 37 weeks .Finn was 5lb 12.5 oz and Ben was 4lb 4.5 oz. The birth (or extraction as my OH calls it !) was fine - Im a bit of a wuss when it comes to hospital but the operation was really ok ! Had a tough time afterwards as both boys were taken to SCBU - Finn had breathing problems and Ben has low glucose levels. I wrote a post a few weeks back which had the full (long!) story about what happened, if you wanted to read it - wouldn't want to worry you though !!
no not really nervous abouth birth-getting planned section between 36 and 37 weeks. i had an emergency one with finn but wanted another as i was petrified incase anything went wrong again.
im nervous of anything being wrong with them though. yrs were good little weights. mine were a gram apart at 20 wk scan-Isla was 346g and Lilly was 345g. apparently thats good for 20wks. ive another scan on tuesday so im eager to see what they are now. they are both very active in their own way. Isla has some footing on her, she is head down on my right, Lilly is feet down on my left and is more of a wriggler than a kicker. Isla doesnt like the doppler either, moves away everytime. lilly lies back and thinks of england i think as they find her straight away. did you have more of a strong willed one??
i cant wait to meet them now. and even though i think ots dragging, the wks are going down qiute qiuckly.
Finn was head down on my right, after turning from breech, at around 22 weeks - not a pleasant experience ! Ben was always head down. Finn was definatly the more active twin - must have been taking all the room !
All the way through the scans, the boys were measuring similar sizes, so when they were born with over a pound difference, we were shocked - must have had some twin to twin going on after all. Luckily it hasn't affected my boys, apart from Ben being a bit diddy - so we call him 'Benjamin button' and Finn is 'Finn Tin' as his hair is always sticking up like 'TinTin' !!
