Twins

’38 weeks pregnant with twins, the doctor said, ‘Your other son has cancer wrapped around all his organs.’: Recovered addict urges ’embrace the challenges’ after birthing twins, Neuroblastoma survivor

“The only words I could get out were, ‘He won’t die, right? He won’t die.’ As long as I live, I will never forget the doctor’s response: ’50/50 chance.’ He called me an ‘idiot’ for wanting to place him on a second treatment trial. ‘We need to stop.’ I knew it was right for our boy.”

‘He put his hands on my belly. ‘God, please give us twins.’ Then, we waited. ‘Here is baby 1, and baby 2.’ Talk about speechless!’: Couple has twins, then triplets after 7-year battle with infertility

“My husband made a joke as we walked out. ‘Imagine if we had TRIPLETS this time?’ Fast forward to our 1st ultrasound. The nurse practitioner saw one baby, then two babies. My husband asked, ‘What is that spec over there?’ I wish someone could have recorded our faces of shock.”

‘Oh wow, three boys! Are you trying for a fourth to get a daughter?’ Strangers ask me this on a regular basis. I always stop and ask myself, ‘Why?’: Boy mom says ‘I wouldn’t change a thing’

“My days are filled with tripping over Matchbox cars, breaking up wrestling matches, searching for big sticks, laughing at poop jokes, and talking about sports. I’ll never be the mother of the bride. I’ll never walk my daughter down the aisle. But I can assure you, I’m not missing out on anything.”
