A Symphony of Innocence
The setting was a quaint photography studio, where the air was filled with anticipation and the softest whispers of excitement. Laying on the bed and adorned in heavenly white, two angelic bundles of joy were nestled, ready to enchant the world with their captivating presence. The tender fragrance of new life hung in the air, creating an ambiance of tranquility and pure innocence.
The Miracle Unfolds
"Early in my pregnancy I had a strong feeling I was with twins. Almost every night I told my husband I was and sure enough there were two babies! At fourteen weeks I was finally seen and was told there was only one. I knew there was something they were missing so my husband and I looked for a private imaging center. I wanted to see my baby again so badly. As soon as she started the ultrasound, I was asked if we knew there were two. My husband looked shocked and all I could say was "I told you so."
Most of my pregnancy I was sick as could be with nausea, dehydration and then eventually low iron needing an iron infusion. We were so lucky to have a healthy pregnancy and very healthy baby boys. My due date was July 6th, a day before my 25th birthday, which absolutely amazed me. At about 30 weeks we planned on an induction at 38 weeks on June 24th, a day before our anniversary. At 35 weeks, I was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia and told I'd be induced on June 11th. I was absolutely terrified that my babies were not ready. The next day I was in for a checkup and admitted for observation. The following morning I was told I was being transferred to a different hospital with a NICU and having my babies that day!
Once transferred I was so lucky to have a wonderful laboring nurse. I was already very medicated with a magnesium IV and feeling absolutely horrible. I finally got an epidural. I was able to deliver Alex, baby A, vaginally but rushed to an emergency C-section with Allen, baby B. They had to completely put me under but at least my husband was with baby Alex the entire time. Later that evening I had a placenta hemorrhage and ended up with two blood transfusions the following day. My recovery in the hospital was difficult. After I delivered Alex everything happened so fast and I still don't remember most of it. One thing I do remember is trying to hold my boys but being terrified I was going to drop them because I could barely hold my own head up. But I couldn't have asked for any more because both of my boys were born safe and healthy without any NICU time and stayed by their daddy's side. Alex being 4 lbs 14oz while Allen 4 lbs 9 oz at birth! We made it home after about a week in the hospital. The boys turned a month old on July 9th and I couldn't be more thankful to be home with my sweet boys and family!"
