My Story


As I write this, I am so happy and filled with love. If you had told me 5 years ago that I would be married and expecting twins, I would have called you CRAZY!
I used to picture my life so differently. I always thought I would be a single gal living in New York. If I ever did picture myself married, kids were NOT a part of the picture. Not that I did not like kids, I love kids, I just never thought I wanted my own....

Then one day I met the love of my life, and as we began to build a life together, everything I always thought I wanted slipped away and I saw a clear picture of the life I really wanted... I wanted a family.
Getting to this point has not been easy, and involved a lot of heartache.

For five years my husband and I enjoyed life together, just the two of us. I think it has been so important for us to have this time together to strengthen our marriage and our bond. We always knew we wanted to start a family but it never seemed to be the right time. Then one day we found out we were going to have a baby. We had already decided the time was not right for us, but in that moment, it did not matter. Once again, everything shifted. We were so happy and in love with each other and the little baby growing inside me. I instantly dove into making plans and getting everything in order. We went to our fist prenatal appointment on September 19, 2013 (10 days after our wedding anniversary). and we found out that our baby did not have a heartbeat. That was probably one of the worst moments in our lives. We had to have a DNC the next day, and then our baby was gone. Sometimes I still think about that day, and the days that followed, and I am still left with an ache in my heart. We loved that baby so much. Having gone through that experience could have been very trying on our marriage, but we relied on each other, and we got through it. My husband was such an amazing source of strength for me.

The one thing that could be taken positively from that experience is that it showed us just how much we wanted to have a baby. We have an AMAZING doctor and she encouraged us to try again as soon as we were ready. We started trying right away. I felt like the only thing that would get me through it was to be pregnant as soon as possible. They say that the best time to get pregnant is right after being pregnant.... BOY IS THAT TRUE!

In Mid-December we found out that not only are were we pregnant, but we were expecting TWINS!!! You can call it fate or God, or whatever you believe in, but I believe with everything in my heart that we had to go through what we did because we were not supposed to have a single baby, we were supposed to have twins. As painful as the situation was, I think we had to go through what we did so we could know just how special these babies are. I am so absolutely IN LOVE with the little babies growing inside me. It may not be the life I thought I wanted, it is so much more. These babies are our little miracles, and
