Just a quick post to announce the birth of our twins last week at 37+2. Twin 1 is a boy and weighed 6lb1 /2.7kg and twin 2 is a girl weighing 5lb / 2.2kg. They’re both doing well.

Unfortunately I had to have an emergency c section which wasn’t the plan – I’m sad I didn’t have the vaginal birth I wanted – but the important thing was that they arrived safely. I will post about the birth at some point.

Ive previously written about some of my fears because of using donor eggs but the love I feel for these babies is all encompassing. We have our family at long last.

6 years of trying to get pregnant

2 chemical pregnancies

2 miscarriages after seeing heartbeats

Countless tears

2 beautiful babies in my arms ❤️❤️
