Hope you like the article, we thought it was very nice and I was glad they cut off most of my belly. The title in the paper was much nicer than the title online, but the article is the same.

Oh dear! The article made me cry! I have 5 month old twins that were born at 35 weeks- after I had 3.5 months on bedrest. I was in preterm labor at 23 and 28 weeks and was on tocolytics until 33 weeks. Mine was strict bedrest and I only went outside when we were going to the weekly doctors appointments. I thought bedrest was the hardest thing I would ever endure BUT I have to say that having my twins in the NICU for 30 days and recovering physically from 3.5 months of not moving- that was the hardest thing. I am happy to report that they are both thriving and as of now you would never suspect they were preemies! Best of luck to you!

Hey Jill,
I just wanted to say hi and hang in there, you look great and are doing wonderful. Hearing all of your stories of meds and steroids brings back bittersweet memories. But you've already made it farther than I did and you have two more babies in there. :) So keep up the good work it's definately worth the end result and they'll be running around kicking soccer balls before you know it.
Take care and hope to see ya soon,
Shauna (WCSF&R)
