twins and death
i was seeing this boy. He was 23 and i was 16. We where in a seriouse relationship about to buy a puppy. On his way home from work he died in a car crash. 2 months later i was throwing up every day 24-7. I didnt no what was wrong so i went to the doctor. I was 2 months pregnant with twins. I remembered braking down. How can i cope with a pregnacy and my better halfs death. I ran home and broke down in my moms arms. She promised she would support me no matter what the dicsion would be. I decided to keep them. There Nicks babies and he would of wanted it.
7 months later the babies arravied. A month ealier then planned though, ! bundle of joy was a boy, his name was Nick Jr. And the other Bluebelle. There where beautiful. Looked exactly like him.
Im now 18 and Nick and Bluebelle are nearly 2. They where the best thing that ever happened to me. They look and remind me of nick and i remind myself how lucky i am to have them.
Scared and ConfusedI am 29 years old and 19 weeks pregnant and just found out im pregnant with twins. I have two other children 11 and 7 and im scared to death. The doctors never heard two heart beats and i never measured to bigger then what i was supposed. Until i received my first ultrasound two days ago my doctors and myself thought i was carrying one child. I dont know how to feel what to feel ...... If there is anyone out there that can help me with this big news please respond!
Our angel watching over us!Just last May we lost our lil girl, Nya. I carried her until I was 23 weeks...I knew something wasnt right because I hadn't feel her move in a couple of days. So, we had an emergency ultrasound to find out that our baby no longer had a heart beat. It turns out she had stopped growing at 20 weeks and they weren't able to find the reason why..even through an autopsy. It was the most heartbreaking time of our lives. I never thought I would smile again.
I believe my baby is watching over us and has sent a lil brother and sister to her mommy and daddy:) We are now 30.1 weeks pregnant with out twins! I've only recently began to feel excited about this pregnancy because I was afraid that I would not carry my babies as far I have. All I can do is hope and pray that my babies will continue to grow and be safe! I believe our angel is watching over her brother and sister:)♥
Mommy's Little AngelsMy name is Toshia and I am 19 years old... a little over a week ago I experienced the scariest thing that has ever happened to me. I'll start from the beginning I guess. In December 2008, I found out I was pregnant. Kinda excited, but definitely scared. All I could think is what is gonna happen? My first thoughts were abortion, but that is something I could never do... especially after what happened a little over a week ago. My boyfriend and I had been having some problems so we definitely weren't trying to concieve, this was definitely something that would change us forever, little did we know at that time. So I told him I was pregnant and I was going to go through with the pregnancy, then on the day of my first sonogram I found out I was pregnant with twins =) Even more exciting, yet even scarier than before as well. Now here it is February 27, 2009... I had another sonogram scheduled for this date and coincidentally this was our 2 year anniversary... so I asked him if he'd like to come to the sonogram. He did and he was excited about it. He got to find out what they were, but I didn't want to know and he wasn't telling anyone, not even me =) Well, on the way home it seemed like something was wrong so I asked if he was okay. I said they're girls aren't they? Joking around because he wanted boys... he said that wasn't it and was silent for a few minutes. Then out of nowhere he says I don't want to be a dad, I don't want kids now and I don't want kids with you.................... What a shock!!! I didn't know what to say, so i said nothing. We talked after we got back to my house and I assured him it wasn't going to be as bad as he thinks.... We were starting to get along better, everything was going okay with the pregnancy, this leads up to my next appointment, March 17, 2009. I had been leaking fluid for a couple of days and I wasn't sure if it was my bladder was leaking or if something was wrong so I asked the doctor, she said it was normal... this wasn't my normal doctor so I was kind of weary, but hey she's the doctor, not me. This was my first pregnancy so I wouldn't know anyways if it wasn't normal. So the next day, I'm having cramps really really bad. I didn't think anything of it, I jumped in a cool shower thinking it would help, apparently not. The cramps got worse and it made me feel like... honestly like I had to take a shit. So I got on the toilet, pushed like I was having a bowel movement, and my water broke..... one of the babies had come out. All that was going through my head was how do I stop this, why is this happening?? I have never felt so helpless IN MY LIFE!!! I was home alone at the time so I had to go downstairs to grab the phone and call 911. I called 911 and they went through the routine and said they were on their way. I had a mean dog, so in order for all these ppl to come into my house I had to seclude him in a room by hismelf. He was upstairs, so I had to go back up the stairs to shut the bedroom door.... then back down the stairs to wait for the ambulance. Meanwhile I have this baby hanging out of me by the umbilical cord, I didn't cry, I couldn't. I was just so shocked all I could say is oh my god.... The ambulance finally got here after what seemed like hours, they did what they had to do and took me to the hospital. The other baby was removed then and I was put up in the maternity ward... I got to see my babies.... got pictures...... all the usual fun stuff u do after having a baby right? Not so much. I wasn't going to get to bring my babies home with me =( This was the worst day of my life. March 18, 2009. I will never forget my two little angels.... Breanna Mae Stone and Savannah Olivia Stone.... mommy loves you <3
5 in 6 yearsI always knew that having twins was a possibility because my dad is a twin and twins and triplets are all throughout my family but I figured it would be one of my other sisters.. My first 3 pregnancies were all single births and all boys now 6,5,and 16 months... so in Oct I found out we are having another baby and my pregnancy was very different from my other pregnancies so I thought this is the little girl I have always wanted...Everyone at work had been teasing me that I was having triplets because I could not stop eating so my 16 week ultrasound arrives and I leave work stating that Ill be back with a picture of only one baby...WRONG I almost fell off the table when the tech asked me if twins ran in my family..... so that day I not only found out I am having twins but both are boys! I am 26 yrs old and will have 5 boys... I never thought I would be excited to have all boys but I am... This is going to be a very exciting adventure for my family...
