When I was pregnant, the doctors would get frustrated that my twins were always facing each other in the womb and consistently following each other whether head down or breech. They could never accurately check their anatomy or get the stats they needed.
In the NICU early this week, their breathing alarms both went off for the first and only time and were within 5 minutes of each other, although a room apart from each other. They keep amazing the nurses with consistencies between the two of them, with feedings, progression, etc.
Today, though, these babies finally got to feel each other’s presence which, I am positive, they feel is lacking now. All I can say, is once they’re home, they will have each other within arm’s reach–always.
