Twins born days apart in different months


Heather Perry never imagined that she would bring her twins into the world days apart.Although the twins were due in May, Perry’s water broke in February — 25 weeks early — while she was at work. She was hospitalized and gave birth to daughter Olive nine weeks early. “It was scary for sure because she came very quickly,” Heather Perry told WDAY. “They said, ‘You can push.’ I asked, ‘Are you ready?’ Three pushes and she was out.”The birth was so quick that her husband, Chris, missed it. The Minnesota couple waited for their son Ashton to arrive next, but that wouldn’t come for five days. Ashton was born on March 1, meaning he and his twin sister will celebrate their birthdays on different days, but also in different months. “I went to Google and found out the world record time for twin births, and found it was 87 days and I said, ‘let’s go for the record,'” Chris Perry said.Heather Perry recalls holding Olive while she was still waiting for Ashton to arrive. “I held her, and every time he would kick in my stomach,” Heather Perry said. “He was enjoying his time to sprawl out.”Although the twins are still in the NICU, they’re healthy and slowly gaining the weight they need to be able to get home to their big sister, Fiona, who already shared story of her new siblings with their UPS delivery person. “It sure is going to be a good story to tell at school and everyone they meet they can tell that story to,” Chris Perry said.Watch the video above to see more of Olive and Ashton’s journey.

Heather Perry never imagined that she would bring her twins into the world days apart.

Although the twins were due in May, Perry’s water broke in February — 25 weeks early — while she was at work. She was hospitalized and gave birth to daughter Olive nine weeks early.

“It was scary for sure because she came very quickly,” Heather Perry told WDAY. “They said, ‘You can push.’ I asked, ‘Are you ready?’ Three pushes and she was out.”

The birth was so quick that her husband, Chris, missed it.

The Minnesota couple waited for their son Ashton to arrive next, but that wouldn’t come for five days.

Ashton was born on March 1, meaning he and his twin sister will celebrate their birthdays on different days, but also in different months.

“I went to Google and found out the world record time for twin births, and found it was 87 days and I said, ‘let’s go for the record,'” Chris Perry said.

Heather Perry recalls holding Olive while she was still waiting for Ashton to arrive.

“I held her, and every time he would kick in my stomach,” Heather Perry said. “He was enjoying his time to sprawl out.”

Although the twins are still in the NICU, they’re healthy and slowly gaining the weight they need to be able to get home to their big sister, Fiona, who already shared story of her new siblings with their UPS delivery person.

“It sure is going to be a good story to tell at school and everyone they meet they can tell that story to,” Chris Perry said.
