For those who do not know, I am mom of multiples (twins to be specific) and today I am linking up with Heather from Just Wait Till You Have Kids Monday link up Introduce Ourselves.
I am Jamila, I am mother of twin fraternal girls who are 9 months old now Mya and Milani. I did not know that I was pregnant with twins until I was 13 weeks and the ultrasound technician informed me after I told her that I already had a sonogram with a picture of one bean! My pregnancy was smooth sailing aside from the constant morning sickness, back aches, feet swelling and irritability but a week after mothers day I received the most shocking news....
24 weeks pregnant, my cervix opened 1 cm. Spending one week in the hospital, my doctor told me that I was officially on bed rest. I spent one month at my mothers house because she was close the hospital where I was to deliver and my doctor and I spent the next month at home in New Jersey because I missed my fiance and my dog Snoopy. July 18th 2011, my fiance and I drove to Brooklyn, New York to the hospital to start the weekly check up of the girls heart when the nurse told me that I was having contractions...again. I was admitted into the hospital and July 19th, 2011 at 6pm Mya arrived weighing 3 lb 9 oz and at 6:01pm Milani arrived weighing 3 lb 1 oz all via c-section. Less than a month in the NICU with no complications other than to learn to feed and gain weight, a day before my baby shower, Mya came home and week later Milani came home and my family was complete. This is a brief summary of my entire pregnancy.
It was not difficult being a mother of preemies, it has been a journey being a NEW mom of twins; but like I say, God will give what you can handle and he knows that my fiance and I can handle this.
I am a writer, received my B.A. in print journalism and I am working on my M.S. in Mental Health Counseling. I am from Brooklyn, NY but now reside in New Jersey. I am getting married September 29th 2012 and my goal is to make my girls famous, have a great career, not stress about finances and to become a popular mom blogger.
I do not have many friends and I am searching to connect with moms like myself, stay at home (temporarily) and moms that have multiples.
