Twins, Then Quads!!!
I'm 25 and I got married to my husband when I was 22, got pregnant when I was 23, and found out it was twins on my 24th birthday, by far the best present. I was ecstatic. Mark and I were the textbook couple. We had good jobs and a nice house with two cars. I had a lot of morning sickness and that was the only thing that I didn't enjoy during pregnancy. But that went away after four months. Anyway, I had an easy vaginal delivery of my beautiful boy/girl twins. We named them Wyatt Frances and Dimaia Evangelina. We were out of the hospital in days and were a happy family. We didn't wait the six months recommended by our doctor but we were fine and it went well. I loved the midnight feedings and the diaper changes even, everything to do with motherhood. I was so happy with my babies that I wanted another baby. Even two would be fine. I had really easy babies to raise so far. I found out I was pregnant a month later and told only Mark and my best friend.
I was serving cake at Wyatt and Dimaia's birthday party when I felt sick. I ran to the bathroom and threw up. I was approximately three months along with my next appointment the next day. When I came out of the bathroom my mom noticed me smile at my husband and immediately pulled me aside to ask me about my status. I replied that I was expecting quads in four months and then went to the porch and announced it to everybody else. Over the next couple months we went through the motions and we were very happy. When I went into labor I was 36 weeks and very heavy. I delivered four beautiful babies vaginally without complications even though I was classified as high risk. On that day I delivered two boys and two girls. Nicholas Anthony came first, followed closely by Rochelle Brigitte. Then, after a small break came Seth David, followed, finally, by Lucia Evangeline. They were all healthy and they are now three years old and attending preschool. The twins are in kindergarten and I have had another baby, a boy named Christopher Grant, who is one, and I am expecting what I want to be our last baby for a couple years, in December. She is a girl and I am naming her Isobel Helene. We are a very happy family and I wouldn't trade any of my children for the world.]
My twinsI just found out that I am having twins (boy) and I am so excited. But how do you take care of two babies at once? The movements are so magical, to feel two babies in your belly playing, itís wonderful. They are identical, how will I be able to tell the difference?
Too soon and too muchI had my son July 11 and had got my first period August 26th. As we all know our husbands can never wait the full time of 6wks, well mine did surprise. We decide that since I got my period the same time I got my last one, the time when I got pregnant it would be safe to have sex after the 10th.
Well it got us back I ovulated on the 12th and am now estimated to be pregnant textbook 6wks and 3days. But my HCG says Iím only 4-5 wks cause it only 460. Well I did an ultrasound just to make sure it wasnít a tubal even though you canít see anything till after your HCG is over 1,000 well I swear that I saw 2 amniotic sacs and only 1 placenta.
I mean I nailed it on the head with my son at 11wks stating I was his little turtleís head between his legs. I have dreams of twins, my husband is a 4th generation of twins and it does run on both sides of the family. Even though my HCG levels kind of low I still think Iím having twins, I honestly have no doubt at this point.
Having TwinsWe just found out 3 weeks ago we are having twins! This is our first pregnancy and twins do not run in our family nor were we taking fertility drugs. We just stopped ttc and that's when it happened. I cannot wait till our babies show up, it feels like eternity before they will be here. On Thursday we have another ultrasound I hope we can find out the sex of the babies, but not counting on it....
TwinsWhen my husband and I found out that I was pregnant we were so happy. I went into premature labor at 30 weeks and was on bed rest till birth. The doctors kept telling me that they were going to be lil and they were. Baby A was 5.12 and Baby B was 5.9 ...now they are healthy 4 months old!!!!!!!
