When my husband and I came upon we had been anticipating, we thought it was so neat that the due date could be 2/22/22. Imagine our shock once we came upon we had been anticipating TWO child boys on 2/22/22. We had been thrilled after all, however I used to be frightened about our 3-year-old son and what it meant for him. I additionally started pondering of all of the problems of a twin being pregnant. I’ve labored in labor and supply for nearly 10 years and have seen every kind of issues occur — pleased, unhappy, and generally scary. I knew from my work expertise that I wouldn’t carry them to my due date, so I began calculating once I would a minimum of be full time period. It simply so occurred that I’d be 37 weeks and 1 day on 2/2/22, and I simply knew that needed to be the date! I requested Dr. Lafranca in December to request for my supply to be that day. It must be a c-section as a result of the boys had been each breech, so scheduling it that day was simple. Jude was born first, then Austin adopted 3 minutes later. When they got here out it was a sense I’ll always remember: overwhelming pleasure that they had been lastly right here and wholesome, however concern and anxiousness over the prospect of caring for two newborns and our 3-year-old son. So far that’s been the largest adjustment for me and my husband: balancing time and a focus between the infants and their large brother.
