    Hi everyone,

    I finally have 2 min to jump on and let you all know we are doing great!

    Finally home we got discharged on Wed after 1 week 1 day in hospital - few issues with weight loss and jaundice with the boys and bp problems (i was quite ill for 48hrs) but all seems to be resolving.

    The boys are really settled sleeping anf feeding really well - i'm expressing BM and giving it in a bottle with 1/4 formula as they are still to little to suck efficiently and i need to ensure they get their food as weight gain has been an issue.
    Samuel my little boy has just hit 2kg he is so placid and loves skin to skin cuddles with his mummy. Jack my bigger boy is steadly gaining back his weight he needed to go under lights for 24hrs cause of jaundice but he is all good now. He also enjoys his cuddles he tried really hard today to have a breast feed but then got to tired.
    They are feeding 3hrly which is getting very tiring so we are trying to get 4 hours out of them overnight but it's not working just yet! DH has been wonderful and it's truly a special time when we sit on the couch and feed together at 200am - i can't help but think about what we went through and how blessed we are.
    I just love them both so much i can't put into words all the feelings and emotions - i will try to do a birth story and post some pictures when i can.

    Hope everyone is well

    xxBella

    Hi all,
    It's been a while since I've been on bellybelly. I have a 23 month old ds and we've just found out that we are now expecting twins. Only had our 12 week ultrasound on Tuesday so I don't think it has even sunk in yet!

    I've back-tracked on some of the posts in here and I just wanted to say Congrats to Bella on the arrival of your boys. Great to hear that things are going well for you at home.

    Hopefully I can share this new journey with you all!

    Thanks, Kayla x

    Bella that is just lovely to hear that you are home and the boys are doing well. You have done such a fantastic job, sounds like you have the right support from Hubby too. Us twin mummy's are certainly blessed, it is very very special, but also very very difficult to get through the first 3 months, so make sure you take time for yourself hunny. Big hugs for you and the boys.

    Kayla, congratulations and welcome to the twin train! Looking forward to following your story, don't be afraid to ask questions, we will gladly help you get the info you need. I know I wanted to know everything about twin pregnancy when I found out.

    BDT I haven't forgotten about you, just been flat out here, I haven't had time to sort out the girls clothes as yet, but when I do, you will definitely have first refusal. I hope you are well.

    Congratulations on your babies Bella, try and take lots of photos because if you are anything like me your twins will turn 1 and the past year will be a bit of a blur! Such an exciting time though.

    And Kayla how wonderful, huge congratulations.

    we're moving on 18th Jan This is our second attempt at emigrating, our first was in 2003 and lasted 4 years, we have been back just over 2 years. How long have you been in Tassie and where are you from originally?

    Sorry to go off topic ladies.

    We arrived in Tas Oct 07, this is our 3rd Christmas. I'm from Milton Keynes and other half is from Bridlington E.Yorks. It was really tough having our twins out here with no family around us, but we've managed and are doing ok, so no big drama's. You wouldn't get me back in the Uk if you paid me!! We are here to stay for good if Australia will have us of course I guess the fact that our girls were born here, must give us a better chance of staying, I hope anyway.
    Do you have family over here?

    I hear you, we had our first 2 boys in Oz with no family, but my twins were born in Scotland. We are all citizens though so it makes it nice and easy to move back
