They suffered from life-threatening Twin-to-Twin Transfusion in-utero, causing me to undergo laser surgery, and 13 weeks of bed rest, 10 of which in the hospital. Every day for a long 13 weeks, we wondered if we would be among the mere 50% of TTTS cases where both babies make it. Our daughters were born at 30 weeks, weighing 2lbs 6oz and 2lbs 12oz. They are now healthy and home - and we're just dealing with the "normal" challenges of caring for preemie twins. They truly are our Little Wonders.
