Twin Boys at 20
(Perth, WA, Australia)
I found out that I was carrying twins when I was roughly 7 weeks, wasn't using IVF (as I'm only 20, was only 19 at the time of conception)..
It came as a big surprise. I'd only miscarried a few months earlier and here 2 months later finding out that I was carrying twins was very rough.
I was freaked out because me and my partner of 8 months at the time was considering having an abortion if I was pregnant again as neither of us were financially stable and if I was to have a baby, I wanted them to have the best life.
But when I heard those words from the ultrasound technician, looks like you're carrying twins, I knew that I couldn't kill them, since I'd lost the first one. Since that day, I knew that I wouldn't have the strength to give them away for adoption either and just wanted to have them and be their mother..
Fast forward, me and my partner are no longer together but I'm 31 weeks with the twins which are going to be boys and I'm really excited. I've got a lot of friends and family supporting me..
I'm just hoping the father will come around and be in their lives, despite the fact that we live 3 hours drive away from each other.
Well that's my story :)
