One Month Old Today!

News from the wonderful Shilpi is
Both are tolerating their feed.
They are maintaining body temperature.
They have no Apnea / Bradycardia Episodes. No other abnormality has seen till today.

Eros: weight-890 grams, HC- 26 CM, LENGTH:36 cm.

Elektra: weight-920 grams, HC-26 CM, LENGTH:36 cm.

They had both dropped in weight after birth to around 760 grams each
so they are progressing well
Typically Elektra being a girl is doing better
Now all they need is to get the Suck, Swallow Breath reflex happening.
Thanks to the team looking after my children,
also Shilpi, Dr Shivani & Dolly

Hi George
Thanks for continuing to provide updates, a lot of people are rooting for you and your family.
Glad to hear that they are gaining weight, they are on their way. Our twins were preemies too, born 1.6kg, so we understand how nerve-wrecking the weight issue can be. Each weighing and sign of gain can be a huge relief. Try not to get too worked up about this - I know it's hard - just keep sight of the light at the end of the tunnel. One step at a time. Babies are remarkably resilient.
Take good care of yourself...
Warm regards

George, thanks for the update. Electra and Eros have a special place in my heart - since I am too expecting twins and being a twin sister myself - I relate to you and your kids. It's with huge relief that we can read about all the good progress of your babies. Can't wait for you to go back and hold them in your arms.
Also was wondering how are you going to celebrate their birthday - the day they were born or their due date? Just asking since I've read that there are 2 options for it.

thanks all for your kind words and warm thoughts
it means the world to me knowing so many people all round the world have my children in good thoughts.
as for celebrating it will be the day they were born, nothing will replace that amazing day i became a father of two beautiful children

That is exactly how I would do - and you will be the greatest dad no doubt - the three of you are so fortunate to have eachother. We wish you only all the best things!
