If Your Twins Were Born This Week

Your twins are very early preterm and the odds of survival are better than weeks past. However, twins born during the 25th week still risk major medical complications and life-long health issues.

  1. I went shopping for a twin/ double stroller this week and was saddened by the lack of choice and models in the stores. Do other twin parents feel like our choice is often limited? I’m going to be a first-time mom and I want to feel the joy and excitement of testing pretty strollers in store!
    My tummy is definitely growing bigger and heavier at a rapid pace so lying on my side is one of the only comfortable positions I have left. When I sit at my desk I get kicked constantly.

    • @Amanda – I agree that there aren’t a lot of double stroller options in stores. We had the most success shopping online for twin strollers.
