Twins can throw you for a loop and this Texas mother certainly got an unexpected curve ball.

Latroya Woolridge gave birth to twins two weeks apart. The twins were both born at Memorial Herman the Woodlands Hospital weighing roughly three pounds.

Woolridge gave birth to baby Amara at 24 weeks, and baby Arthur at 26 weeks.

"When I saw her feet kicking that was just the best moment, but at the same time I was afraid of what was going to happen next because she was so tiny," Woolridge says.

Dr. David Weisoly, NICU Medical Director says, "At 24 weeks’ delivery is more than four months early and it's really right at the borderline at where babies will survive."

During labor the doctors made the decision to deliver one and hope the other one would stay put for a while.

Both babies are doing well and are expected to go home before their May 5th due date.
