I was away when you were going thru all the bedrest and difficulties of carrying your two precious girls. Could you point me in the direction of your posts where you were getting support from everyone in this wonderful support group/family. I want to do it this way because i don't want you to tell me because I don't want to bring it all up again. I hope you can do this. i just want to read about the things you went thru during your pregnancy and the time of the girls birth.

Thanks
Loretta

or if it's too much could you get someone to look them up for you?

You're so blessed to have your beautiful little girls. I would love to see pictures of your little bundles of joy.

Loretta,
 
You are wonderful - and I thank you for your post.  Try something - go up to the upper right hand corner and in the "search" field - type in something like my screename or "Tina" and "babies" or "twins".  I think you may be able to pull up a bunch of my post that shows my journey over the last year.  If this doesn't work - let me know, and I'll figure out another way. 
 
In all honesty, I was in SEVERE post-partum depression from their birth through about mid-January.  I don't even know if I posted here.... told their birth story.... or whatever.  I was severely medicated in order to not be hospitalized.  Once I got off all the stuff, though - I'm coming back to life, slowly but surely. 
 
Finally - if you don't find what you are looking for here.... I did write up the whole journey and would be happy to share it with you.  It has everything from how I wasn't even supposed to get pregnant (diagnosed pre-menopausal, along w/ all my health issues), to finding out I was carrying twins, to trying to get off all my meds - and battling some horrendous doctors until I found the right ones, to them wanted to abort one of the girls because she wasn't growing properly (they are both healthy as can be now), and on and on.  I'd be happy to share it with you...just e-mail me and I'll send it to you as soon as I can.  I've had a couple of people seriously approach me about writing a book.  You know, in my spare time :)
 
Oh, and if you e-mail me - I'll send you a picture, too - or you can find me on Facebook.  I just forgot how to post pics here.  Maybe one day, someone can tell me again.
 
Thinking of you tonight, Loretta.  Thanks for the post..... Love, Tina

Tina,
Since I've been absent I just want to congratulate you on the birth of your twin girls. I remember when you first became pregnant, but then most of the past year I've done very little reading and posting here. Even now I've only read a couple of threads, but since this was right on top, I wanted to add my good wishes.

If I recall, most of the other 6 children are boys? But I could be wrong there.

PaLady...
 
Thank you - I really appreciate it.  I was absent too for many months....but am trying to be more active again.  It's my "escape" :)  Yes, I have the 6 boys.... ages 16 down to 7.  Got very sick during that last pregnancy w/ my 7 year old.  The rest is pretty straightforward!  These little girls were determined to make it into this world!  I was on bedrest for almost 5 months and delivered them at 36 weeks.  They are identical twins and now 6 months old.  The physical and emotional demands are incredible; but I do feel very blessed to have them.
 
Thank you for your well wishes..... and I wish the same for you, too! 
Hugs,
Tina

Hi Tina. I sent you an email and got it back saying it couldn't send it to you. I don't know what went wrong. I was asking for the thing you wrote about your pregnancy and so forth with your twins. Could you send it to my email address? It's in my profile. I would appreciate it. I hope you're having a low pain night. Take care.

love ya my friend,
Loretta

Hi Loretta....
 
Ugggghhh....I hate insomnia.  I'm so tired but can't sleep :)  Anyway, I don't know what went wrong w/ my e-mail.... but I will definitely try sending it to you via your e-mail.  It may be tomorrow since I need to find it here on my computer....but I will definitely send it to you! 
 
But I'll at least send you a pic of the girls tonight.... let me know if you get it :)  Love to you - Tina

Yes, I got your email. Your precious baby girls are so beautiful. I love those pics that you sent me. They're wonderful. I was so touched at what you told me in your email. We've known each other for a few years now, and I would like to get to know you better. I know you're really busy with those little beauties, but maybe we could email each other a time or two a week or something. Let me know what you think about that. You take care. I hope you're able to sleep now, and you're having a low pain night.

love ya
Loretta
