When my husband and I came upon we have been anticipating, we thought it was so neat that the due date can be 2/22/22. Think about our shock after we came upon we have been anticipating TWO child boys on 2/22/22. We have been thrilled after all, however I used to be fearful about our 3-year-old son and what it meant for him. I additionally started considering of all of the problems of a twin being pregnant. I’ve labored in labor and supply for nearly 10 years and have seen all types of issues occur — completely happy, unhappy, and typically scary. I knew from my work expertise that I wouldn’t carry them to my due date, so I began calculating once I would no less than be full time period. It simply so occurred that I might 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 have been each breech, so scheduling it that day was simple. Jude was born first, then Austin adopted 3 minutes later. Once they got here out it was a sense I’ll always remember: overwhelming pleasure that they have been lastly right here and wholesome, however concern and anxiousness over the prospect of taking good care of two newborns and our 3-year-old son. Up to now that’s been the largest adjustment for me and my husband: balancing time and a spotlight between the infants and their huge brother.
