I already have 2 boys, but always wanted one more. My youngest son has cf, the dr.'s told us we shouldn't get preg again b/c of the risk of having another child with cf. Things were rough and we decided to part ways. I met the love of my life. He has no children and love mine dearly. I wanted another baby. We tried.
When we finally concieved we were on cloud nine. At 9 weeks the baby's heart stopped. We were both crushed. We tried for months and nothing happened. My youngest was hospitalized in August. He had to have surgery to fix the vp shunt in his brain. I spent some time in the chapel praying for him. I asked God, please give me one more chance. 8 weeks passed.
I was so happy, pos. test. I went to my first appointment and found out I was having twins. When God blesses you, He goes all the way. I am having fraternal boys. I am now 20 weeks and waiting. God is good....
Twins?I am 10 weeks pregnant with twins. Me and my husband have been trying to conceive for about a year. We have two other children ages 9 and 4. At my first OB I was 9 weeks. They did an ultra sound and found two heart beats. Neither one of us could believe it. There has never been twins in my family and there hasn't been none in his in 45 years. This came to us has a total shock. We are very excited and expect to have them July 4 2008.
All for a boy!I was already a mother to a 9 month old girl, Belle, when myself and my husband decided to try for a boy. We got pregnant almost instantly and crossed our fingers for a boy. My family noticed how much larger I was than last time and decided it was because it was a boy this time so when my 4 month check-up came and I was in 7 month clothes the doctor knew what I was thinking. Twins. I almost fainted when they told me it was quads. I laughed when they said it was four girls. My husband almost cried! He wanted a boy badly but he still loved girls.
On April 1st 2003 I got to hold my girls. Annabelle came first weighing in at 6 pounds even and 20 inches. Next came Isabelle with the same measurements. Jenibelle was 3rd at 6 pounds 5 oz. and 21 inches and Mirabelle came last at 5 pounds 5 oz. and 19 inches.
We weren't expecting them to be so big and they only spent 4 nights in the hospital. We took our fools day babies home and were plagued with sleepless nights for a week or so until the babies got onto a schedule.
When Jeni, Anna, Mira and Isa were 3 months old my husband said he wanted to try again. For a boy of course. I was like when all the kids are in school we can try again. But just once. Well, the kids went to school in '06 and I had Henri Neville that August.
With Henri came Sebastien Michel since I obviously couldn't get away with having just one baby. We brought him home and my husband didn't ask for another boy but of course I am 8 months pregnant with a girl, to be named Lucille Brielle and after this we are not having any more.
I am done with being pregnant and I want to sit back and watch my Belle, Annablle, Isabelle, Jenibelle, Mirabelle, Henri, Sebastien and Lucille grow into beautiful ladies and gentlemen. We are moving to France, my native country, and plan on raising all eight of our children there and then living there for the rest of our lives.
True, 8 children is a lot but I always wanted a big family and while I wanted 10 originally I am content. I suppose if I happen to have a couple more children it would be okay but I do not plan on it and whatever happens happens. Au Revoir!

How do you cope? I have no idea.I found out I was prengant and 8 months later out came Isobel Grettle and Rochelle Grace, along with a small bundle of surprise, Annabelle Grier. Later, I found out that I was pregnant again. I had Brigitta Evangelina. When the G's were 3 and Gitta was 18 months I gave birth to Henry Cuddin, James Curran, and Theodore Cullen. The G's started pre-school that year and I put Gitta into playschool. I got pregnant again. I carried for 10 1/2 months before Braillen Evan and Bethany Evelyn. I had one more baby, Benjamin Everett. 10 kids. The older four are in school and the C-boys are in daycare. We may not be an ordinary family but we are ALL happy, healthy and in love with each other very much.
twins boy and girlI'm 26 weeks preg. No one will tell me when i should expect twins since they could go to full term or early. I'm kinda freaking out a bit. I have 4 year old girl and have had two failed pregys. The doc said that in most cases of twins the mother should have at least been preg 3-4 times before the body will produce twins. How ever a lot of it has to do with genetics and etc...
I had no clue when i went in for my ultra sound at 12 weeks that i was going to find out that i was going to have twins. As soon as the lady told me there was two I was in shock, i called my husband while i was still on the table. it just changed our whole life at that moment.
We had planned for one but two this is really going to be a challenge. wish me luck. I now know that they will be a boy and a girl. and that is all i will be having. 3 is enough for me.
