35 Weeks Today.....

That is how old the girls are gestationally. Which means they are starting to do more. The Dr. ordered today that they can start nursing whenever they look like they want to! Yay! We tried Emilia today and she just got too tried to suck alot. Then Amber had me move to Gwendolen and that little princess shocked us all. She sucked, swallowed and breathed perfectly and nursed for almost 3 minutes straight! I'm so proud of her!! We could hear her swallowing and breathing and it was the best thing EVER! That is almost their last step to come home. They are all holding their body heat, weight loss is minimal, and they will be done with the lights within a few days. So basically, we get the nursing down good and we are HOME BABIES HOME!! The Dr's also ordered that they can come off monitors to eat at the same time if 2 of them want it at the same time! That is huge! Way to go baby girls! We are so proud of you!


  1. Awesome report! So happy for all of you! You're doing a great job! Love the sun bathing beauties too!

  2. Go nursing girls, go! Congrats on this big step and so happy for you and your amazing girls.
