What's that about making plans???

My plans were all turned upside down when the babies decided to come very early at 32 weeks.

During the early hours of Tuesday morning, Kendra and Connor were born. K weighed 1,590 kg and C weighed 1,850 kg. (edited to add: multiply by 2.2 to convert to pounds!)

Tiny tiny tiny!

They are both fine (doing better than they should be at this stage) but will be in the NICU until they can both breathe on their own and are 2kg or more in weight.

I, on the other hand, am being discharged in about an hour or two and will be going home.

Oh I'm so excited to be the first to congratulate you here! I'm so thankful that the babies are doing well (I'm going to have to convert the weight to pounds) and will pray for them to be breathing on their own soon so you can all be home together as one big happy family!!

Yay!!

Congratulations on your new arrivals! I pray that they continue to be healthy and can come home soon.

I remember when my daughter was born she weighed in at 4141 g (ouch). That's my only metric baby size knowledge.
