    It's a terribly difficult decision to make as I don't want long term health difficulties, but at the same time it's a lot of money...

    Hi there,

    I am a new mum to twins Frankie and Jude - 3 1/2 weeks. Loving it but i do wonder if i will ever cope with bf, and with both babies on my own in general! Partner is going back to work on Monday. So its me and Mum to manage them. Did anyone else accept help in the early stages?

    For no amount of extra money would I put my children at risk, and you won't find a health professional who would willingly go along with that for no reason other than financial.
    I'm sorry but I find it incredibly selfish that you would even contemplate this.

    Hi Mrs O'Hara, it was the ob that offered it to me. I was just wanting feedback as to how babies born at 34 Weeks fared.

    Is it worth a double check, as I was told the bonus stays the same for multiple births, regardless of birth order? Worth an ask anyway.
    I personally would not consider deliberately delivering premature for money, but realise that's not the info you're looking for.

    I'd be steering clear of any OB who offered that.
    My twins were born at 35+2 both with IUGR only weighing 1.5kg and 1.8kg and spent 3 weeks in NICU/SCN. Both were in humidity cribs and on CPAP for 2 days. They had feeding difficulties and had NG tubes.
    I would not recommend early delivery unless it was a life threatening issue.

    My boys were born at 35+4 - because I had pre-eclampsia. They were 2.2kg ad 2.5kg. Twin B spent his first night in a humidy crib and was on a drip for the first 2 days. Twin A was fairly well. All up we spent 9 days in hospital after their birth. I would have given anything to be able to cook them for longer!
    As you might have seen before both of my boys have just been diagnosed with reactive airway disease. Now, both mine ad DH's family history with asthma and hayfever doesn't help the boys' cause but them being born premmie didn't help either.
    Hi ajb Congrats on the arrival of your precious bundles!

    Twinniemumma : oh wow, how are your boys now? Im going well, I had my baby shower yesterday which was lovely and relaxing follwed by going out to town with DH and his mate. Glad I went because I know what they are like together and if I hadnt I know they would have gotten ****ed and stayed out all night haha as it was I had to drive us home lol! Today I am trying my best to do nothing to rest after last nights effort

    Speccie : I think you should forget about the money and concentrate on keeping them in for as long as possible. Being born early can have impacts like asthma which is not fun. They would need to stay in hospital for a few weeks and wouldnt have the suckle reflex. Please consider their long term health over some extra $$, I personally think it isnt worth thinking about. I would be worried if my OB brought it up :/ yes 34 weeks isnt very early but I dont think its worth the risk still. I would love to keep them in until 40 weeks but we all know that wont happen please fight to keep them in many people arent lucky enough to have the choice. If you have complications it would be a completely different story.

    AJB : Although my twins arent here yet I have the same worries already! Take as much help as you can!

    The boys are well and truly on the mend now. Not looking forward to winter only because if cold and flu season. More hospital visits are inevitable :\

    Haha Jess sounds like a very good decision for you to go along with your DH and his mate. Glad you had a good baby shower - i'll bet you all got spoilt! how much longer now? (On my phone and can't see your ticker).
