I am enjoying a lazy morning,
This is the story of our surprise,
or gory story.
A Mother Just Knows
He gave me that same look I had seen for weeks. He really thought I was crazy... until he put his hand on my belly, just when the "imaginary" baby kicked me, hard in the diaphragm, taking my breath away.
After all... strangers had stopped me in the Mall in the last few weeks, to ask how much "over due" I was, or if I was having twins. But, according to my doctor, I was due any day... and having just one.
Sonograms were fairly new back then, and he refused to let me have one. So... I delivered on time (according to my doctor) but in reality... five weeks early. Yes... I had been right. With one just over 5lbs. and one just under. One born on the 17th and one five minutes later... on the 18th. My midnight babies.
Push!... Breathe... Push!
So... I left that place and that doctor, ASAP. We took in bottles of my milk to the other hospital, twice a day, for ten days until my precious babies came home.
All because... I just knew.
Two girls and two boys. My husband's first children. We had been married less than a year. I had added to his family legacy in one fell swoop.
and friends for life!
Marc and Matt!
