We discovered we were having twins!

It was on New Years, the happiest day of my 17 years. I found out I was pregnant with my ex-fiancé's twins.
We were so happy, we were so joyous, and all was well. The first trimester passed smoothly and without error.

On the third month (13 weeks), we discovered we were having twins! A boy and a girl! You should have seen the look on my ex-fiance's face. He nearly cried, and so did I. We named them Taylor Michael and Sarah Antoinette. ( Names have been changed to protect identity) They were due to be born on September 12th, 2013. We left the doctor smiling, holding an ultrasound in our hand of our beautiful babies.
Then the inevitable happened. I woke up in month 5 with the worst stomach cramps ever and I was bleeding heavily. Right on the spot I knew what had happened: I had lost them.
I broke down and cried myself to sleep for days on end. How could something so precious be taken away? I was So angry, angry at God, angry at myself, angry at the World.
After that experience, it took a long time to heal. Ever since then, I have honoured their memory by keeping their ultrasound pictures in frames by my bed and by keeping their names tattooed on my heart. R.I.P Mommy loves you forever and always, and someday we will meet.
