I am a mom to twins who decided to make an early arrival on April 12, 2009. I had an original due date of June 2, 2009. I found out I was carrying twins when I was just shy of 11 weeks pregnant.
My pregnancy was non-eventful until I hit my 32 week mark and went into pre-term labor. The Doctors did all they could to prevent me from delivering and sent me home on bed rest. Two days later my water broke and the contractions began. My twins were delivered via C-Section and have been in the NICU ever since.
For their age and size they are doing well with a few minor setbacks, but in time they will be healthy enough to come home.
Being a mom is amazing. Every day that I look at my babies I am in awe that they are mine.
