Young and surviving with twins at 16
I started to date my bf when we were both 14. We had a great relationship and ended up in love so 7 months later we decided to have sex for the first time, both our first times. 4 months after we first had sex I found out I was pregnant. I was so scared and didn't know what to do but together we saw the doctor who informed us I was 2 months pregnant with twins! yes twins..I didn't want my parents to know about it but they had to after all they would figure it out soon enough. My dad went crazy and said I was to have an abortion or I was out of the house, my mom was a little more understanding. My dad kicked me out for a week but only let me stay back in the house with one rule: I was to leave as soon as the babies came.
My bfs parents were so much more understanding about the situation they set up the guest house for when the babies were due so I could move in with them. My dad didn't even show up at the hospital. At the age of 15 1/2 I had a beautiful baby girl Halie Anne and a gorgeous little boy Jacob Alexander. I was only aloud back to the house with out the babies to pick up my final things and then had to leave. I have not spoken to my father but I do see my mom at least once a week and she is great she loves the babies and is always helping out by getting them stuff and giving some money towards their upkeep. I now live with my bf and our two adorable babies (who are just 10 months old) with my bfs family. I am going to start back at school in september I took a year out and my bf is still in school he never left. Its so hard sometimes especially with two babies at once trying to look after them..and oh god when they were just new borns..it was crazy all the time! I am just lucky to have so much support I couldn't do it with out everyone else.
the quads and at peace!I was 7 mounths pregnant when i found out i was having quads.My husband was shocked when i told him he thought i was lie so i re took the test right in front of him. The 4 kids where born and theyre birth day is april 4 2004 there are 3 girls and 1 boy and we are living happily and could have never asked for more!
Twins and maybe moreI am 28 years old and our ID twins are 4.5 years old. I found i was PG with them at 12dpo, i was extremely tired and starting at 6 wks i had m/s so bad that i was in the E.R twice before 9 wks. At 10 wks the doctor told me it was twins and i told him he was lying lol. They do run in my family though, and all that stuff about ID twins being a freak of nature and can't be genetic is not true. In our family every other generation as far back as we have recorded has had ID twins. After 6 weeks on bed rest the girls were born by emergency c-section at 34 weeks. Baby A was very tiny at 3lbs and baby B was 4lbs. B had to be rushed to the childrens hospital because her lungs collapsed. After 8 days they released baby B and we took her to the hospital where her sister was they let them co sleep for about and hour and the next day baby A was stable enough to come home. Yay for co-sleeping.
We are expecting again, it is very early but I got a BFP at 9dpo, hubby is overseas for a year but we are very excited. Now we are only 3.5 weeks PG and so hoping for twins again. They are such a joy, even if i do have to hide in the closet sometimes to talk on the phone because they are so loud =)
HAD AN IUD & PREGNANT WITH TWINSAFTER THE BIRTH OF MY 2ND CHILD WE DECIDED TO PUT AN IUD. TWO YEARS OF NON-PREGNANT BLISS WENT BY! i BEGAN TO CRAMP AND SOMETHING TOLD ME TO TAKE A PREGNACY TEST. WHEN IT CAME BACK POSITIVE I CALL THE DOCTOR. WE TOOK THE IUD OUT AND MY ULTRASOUND HAD NO FETAL POLE. THE CRAMPING CONTINUED AND I THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE TO HAVE AN I & D. I WENT BACK TO THE DOCTOR AND WE DID A 2ND ULTRASOUND AND THERE WERE 2 FETAL POLES! MY DOCTOR SAID WE SHOULD BUY A LOTTO TICKET!
My Two Precious AngelsI am 20 years old and Have had two pregnancies, Both of which I miscarried. I started to take birth control after I had a pregnancy scare. After a year of being on the pill I went off them, I felt like they were not the right kind of pill for me. I planned on making a Doctor appointment to get new ones, but before I could do that, I started to feel very ill. I couldn't remember my last period, so being the paranoid person I am, I bought a pregnancy test. When I took it the test, it was a VERY clear positive. I made a Doctor appointment we did the normal pregnancy tests, and everything came out positive. He was worried when I had a large amount of hormones. He decided just to keep a close eye on me.
I started to have pains so I went to the doctor office and they did an emergency ultrasound, and found out there were two babies. The pains were from my uterus growing at a repaid rate. I am now 14 weeks pregnant and both babies are perfectly healthy.
