Pregnant With Twins & Doin' It Alone...
by Sarah M.
My names Sarah. I'm 19 yrs old and pregnant with boy/girl twins. I am currently 24 1/2 weeks. I am very excited and overwhelmed all at the same time. I don't have very much family support either. My mom just had a baby of her own and he's 7 months old... My sister is not really supportive, and all my other family lives in a different state. I'm not supposed to be walking as much as I do cause my doctor feels I'm stimulating preterm labor, but I really don't have much of a choice. Whenever anyone of them do decide to help me, they are complaining about it. So, I'm stuck doing things I shouldn't just to get things done. I live alone, and that's how it will be after birth. I would like for some advice on how to do all this alone..but don't know where to go for that. I know I'm not gonna be able to take care of 2 babies without some help.. but I can't see me givin' them up either. They are the only ones that can put a smile on me. Those little/big kicks make me happy when I'm down...and their pics too:) If there is anyway to get advice on how I can do this, I really need it. I pray every night, and keep God close, so maybe things will work out for me. These are my 1st children, and I'm preparing myself for them, cause my goal is to be the best mother I can be, and prove everyone wrong that think I can't do this. I really need some words of encouragement..anyone?
