Wow, congratulations! Way to go, Lydia!
I'm stalking this lodge now for more info. You've been in my thoughts all day.
Homebirthing, breastfeeding, sling wearing, cloth diapering momma to 3 girls ages 7 and 6 year old twins and peanut #4 due sometime in late September
Congrats! Surprise twins! My DH was a surprise twin....had to wait almost a week to be named because they only had one name picked out!
Congratulations, doubly! I am sorry your joy has this shadow cast over it--I hope it clears up quickly.

I think the size discrepancy between the boys may be part of why they are in NICU. I'm sure they want to make sure they are both doing well.
(I'm far from an expert, but I do believe that one twin being that much larger than the other may indicate twin to twin transfer syndrome, and that there can be complications for the larger twin as well. Is that right Chimmy? I know you know far more about it than I do.)
