My Twins Story (Anonymous)

June 1, 2008

I was 24 years old when we found out i was pregnant! A bit shocked but excited. 8 weeks into the pregnancy i started having severe pains on one side when i moved. Panicking i went to the doctor but she reassured me things were probably fine but to come back if it continued, which it did! So i went back and she arranged a scan. I had to go alone as my partner could not get out of work and no-one else knew about the pregnancy. The lady doing the scan suddenly says to me ‘have you got any twins in your family’!!! All i could say was ‘oh my god’. I had to phone my partner and tell him, we was really pleased thank god! Anyway, the pregnancy went well until my 35 week check up when it was discovered my blood pressure was sky high, with the onset of pre-eclampsia! I had to deliver the babies that day! Yikes!! After a 9 hour induced labour i gave birth naturally to 2 perfect baby girls, 5lb 4 and 5lb 8 oz. We spent a week in SCBU untill we could go home and now they are doing brilliantly. My stomach is covered with stretchmarks and is real squishy! But, i guess they are worth every mark even if i do have to get the super pants out if i want to get the flat stomach look! 1st Pic 16 weeks Pregnant, 2nd pic on day i gave birth, 3rd pic the girls straight after birth, 4th pic the girls now and 5th pic me now!!
