We dream, we make plans, we fight. We do everything in our power to succesd in whatever we want, but destiny is something we’re not able to change.
Destiny is what happens even though we are not prepared for it!
I have a story to share, in April 2014 I found out I was pregnant. Weeks later, at a doctors appointment, my husband and I received a surprise. My pregnancy was special, we were blessed with twins. It runs in my family so it was a possibility but also a big surprise! Because a pregnancy just by itself is not enough hahaha
Everything was going on ok. I was working as usual, having a normal life, taking my vitamins, walking everyday, staying as healthy as possible! At the beginning of my second trimester the doctors saw a problem with one of the babies kidneys, so I was having one monthly ecogrpahies as a normal control. Hopeful that issue would disappear, because there was a chance, but that did not happen.
Normally a pregnancy lasts for about 40 weeks, and a twin pregnancy depends on the mothers size, the position of the twins and lots of things, but in this case the unexpected happened. On November 2nd, I started feeling funny, my husband took me to the hospital, one of the amniotic sacs had a fissure. They took me into an intensive care unit and moved me to another city because it was very dangerous for the babies to be born in this 32nd week of pregnancy. So I stayed in the hospital with a special medicine because contractions were getting stronger, and I began to bleed. On November 9th, the babies were born really fast. It took them 24 minutes at 12:21 Julia came out, and at 12:24 Marta said hello world!
Even though they were really tiny they were born fighters since the beginning. They stayed almost two months in the incubator at the CIU. Marta with a small problem in her heart and Julia because of her kidney operation.
It has been really hard for us as new parents, it’s hard to see them with tubes, and so fragile, being positive as much as you can, fighting to breastfeed it’s also another adventure.
Everyone tries to cheer you up, but until you had an experience like this you can’t imagine how does it truly feels. So I have a new project, the best one I could have never imagined, it involves a lifetime full of love.
Everyday is an adventure and nothing is more important than them ❤️👭❤️
