At age 43, my mother-in-law, Peggy Lewis, delivered twins on this day in 1963.  Combined, they weighed in at 16.5 pounds!  David weighed 7 plus and Diana weighed 9 plus pounds.  I might add they were breach and the doctor didn’t do an x-ray until the day before delivery when he discovered 2 heartbeats.  Peggy’s previous birth, Jeffrey was 11 plus pounds, so she was just anticipating another big baby.  She came home with two!
